Watching Orange is the New Black, I couldn’t help but think “do the actors’ parents watch?”
I assume that if you’re Taylor Schilling or Laura Prepon, you’re so excited to be doing quality work on a well-written project like OITNB that it’s not your first concern. But then you’re shooting a shower scene, and both of you are topless. Then what?
It depends on the family, obviously, but with my parents, I just cringe thinking about nudity. Sometimes it inhibits what I write too.
How crummy to try to make it in television and film–with or without the support of family–only to get cast but have reservations about said family seeing your complete work!
Amanda Seyfried, who is currently promoting her film Lovelace, had this to say in US Weekly.
What do you think? If you were an actor, how would you deal?
She is spectacular in Traffic, one of the eight or so DVDs I own and thus in heavy rotation given that Time Warner Cable won’t set me up for another week. As a result, I am wondering why Erika Christensen hasn’t had better film roles.
I watch her on Parenthood where I think she’s largely wasted (not to mention miscast).
She has kept a very low profile. Googling “Erika Christensen” only turns up a smattering of information including the fact that she is a Scientologist.
These are the things I contemplate when I should be doing things like, oh, unpacking my new apartment.
