Below is the next “Scratch the Surface” EJ Podcast. EJ has as his guest today Danielle MacDonald.
Danielle is the lead in a great new independent film called Patti Cake$ (out August 18th in NY and LA). I got to go to an early screening of the film and meet Danielle. I loved the film and her performance in it. I was very impressed that an actress from Australia could play a rapper from New Jersey. Silly me. Well, I thought she did such a great job I wanted to talk to her about it and her life.
We talk about:
- growing up in Australia,
- her decision to pop into acting and how she transitioned into moving to America,
- training and practicing the rapping for months before she filmed the movie,
- working on other projects with actors like Alexander Skarsgård (who got naked in front of her),
- playing Diane Lane’s daughter and how Diane really took Danielle under her wing,
- doing an episode of American Horror Story,
- how she lost a lead role on a TV show because her VISA ran out,
- being on Glee,
- working with Clark Gregg,
- meeting Amy Schumer
- and so much more!!!
