Smallville Actress Allison Mack Is Negotiating a Possible Plea After Sex-Trafficking Arrest

Actress Allison Mack is working out a possible plea following her Friday arrest on sex-trafficking charges in connection with Nxivm, a controversial self-help group and alleged “cult” based in New York, PEOPLE learns.

Mack, 35, and federal prosecutors disclosed their pending plea negotiations in a joint petition filed Friday, asking the court to exclude the next several days from the larger period of time under which Mack’s speedy trial must begin.

The application, obtained by PEOPLE, shows both parties sought the exclusion “because they are engaged in plea negotiations, which they believe are likely to result in a disposition of this case without trial.”

The prosecution and defense “require an exclusion of time in order to focus efforts on plea negotiations without the risk that they would not, despite their diligence, have reasonable time for effective preparation for trial,” the petition continues.

The judge in Mack’s case approved their request, court records show. She had been scheduled to return to court for a detention hearing on Monday.

Mack faces three federal charges in connection with Nxivm, whose co-founder Keith Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March on the same three accusations. Both are accused of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy for their alleged roles in running a secretive sub-group within Nxivm involving “masters” and “slaves.”

The former Smallville costar faces at least 15 years in prison if convicted on all of her charges. She reportedly pleaded not guilty during her first court appearance in the case, in New York City, on Friday.

Mack — who appeared in FX’s Wilfred and The Following, on Fox, after Smallville ended — has previously discussed her connection with Raniere. “Over the course of several years, Mr. Raniere mentored Allison in her study of acting and music,” her website stated until her arrest (after which it was taken offline).

A representative for Mack has declined to comment to PEOPLE on her arrest. Attempts to contact her attorney, Sean Stephen Buckley, have not been returned.

Raniere’s lawyer could not immediately be reached by PEOPLE. He has yet to be arraigned.

Nxivm, reportedly formed in 1998 and based out of Albany, New York, has been the subject of scrutiny from both law enforcement and journalists as it came under fire from Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg, whose estranged daughter, India, joined the group in 2011.

“I hope the arrest of Ms. Mack will continue to expose what Nxivm is — a dangerous cult — and the members, including my daughter, will come to that realization and find their way back to their loved ones,” Oxenberg, 56, told PEOPLE after Mack was arrested.

For the past two decades, an estimated 16,000 people have paid as much as $ 3,400 for an executive coaching workshop offered by Nxivm, which promises to take participants on a journey of personal discovery and development, according to previous PEOPLE reports.

Nxivm has not responded to numerous requests for comment from PEOPLE but issued a statement in support of Raniere soon after his arrest, writing in part: “We are currently working with the authorities to demonstrate his innocence and true character.”

In the fall, the group denounced a New York Times article about them as “a criminal product of criminal minds.”

‘Wonder Woman’ Actress Gal Gadot Teams Up with Reebok to Encourage Physical Fitness

BUSY GAL: Reebok has recruited “Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot for a new partnership.
In an assortment of images, the “Wonder Woman” actress shows off her strength wearing items from the brand’s training collection. Working out is fundamental for her. Aside from having a mother who worked as a physical education teacher, the Israeli-born, 32-year-old served for two years as a combat instructor in the Israel Defense Forces. The mother of two has opted for some physically demanding roles too such as “Fast & Furious” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Gadot’s strength training will presumably be ramping up in the months ahead, since “Wonder Woman 2” is slated to hit theaters in November 2019.
As for her own workout regime, “my trainer and I make sure to keep our training regime as diverse as possible so it keeps it different and fun. I lift weights, cardio and boxing. We also focus on flexibility,” she said via e-mail.
With 17.6 million Instagram followers, Gadot joins the ranks of Gigi Hadid, Victoria Beckham, Ariana Grande and other widely followed women who work with Reebok. For its newest celebrity-supported campaign, Reebok tapped photographer Collier Schorr.
Hired to reinforce Reebok’s “Be More Human” mantra, Gadot said via

French Actress Mireille Darc Dies

SCREEN LEGEND: Mireille Darc, an icon of Sixties and Seventies French cinema, died early Monday at the age of 79. She had been ill since suffering a brain hemorrhage last year and passed away at home, a source told WWD.
A sex symbol in her day, Darc projected French seduction with her sultry voice, heavily drawn eye makeup, fixed gaze and thick blonde hairdo. In recent months, talk swirled that her hairstyle might have inspired that of France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron.
Darc appeared in films with some of France’s best known actors, including Louis de Funès and Alain Delon, to whom she was romantically linked for 15 years.
She raised eyebrows for her role in the Seventies slapstick comedy “The Tall Blond Man With One Black Shoe,” directed by Yves Robert. In one of the film’s most famous scenes, Darc swings around to show off her high-necked, long-sleeve Guy Laroche cocktail dress. Her back is suddenly exposed, as is part of her bottom, to a befuddled musician played by Pierre Richard. That dress was featured in an exhibition at Paris’ Musée des Arts Décoratifs last year, called “Fashion Forward, Three Centuries of Fashion.”
Darc is survived by her husband, the architect Pascal Desprez.

Joshua Jackson Congratulates Ex Diane Kruger on Best Actress Win at Cannes: ‘What Took ‘Em So Long!’

Joshua Jackson has nothing but admiration and affection for his ex Diane Kruger.

The actor took to Instagram on Sunday to congratulate the actress on her best actress win at the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival, 10 months after the two called it quits after a decade together.

Kruger took home the award for her performance in the drama In the Fade, which follows a woman grappling with the aftermath of her family’s death in a bombing.

“Yes she Cannes,” he wrote in the post, including a graphic announcing Kruger as the award’s recipient. “Having witnessed the integrity and dedication that you bring to every job, I’m over the moon to see you getting the recognition you deserve. Only question is what took ’em so long! CONGRATULATIONS, Josh.”

 

Kruger and Jackson split in July 2016. In a statement to PEOPLE, reps said the two “have decided to separate and remain friends.”

For full coverage of the Cannes Film Festival, including the biggest stars and best red carpet moments, check out people.com/cannes-film-festival

They’ve since remained friendly, stepping out together a month after the split for a stroll in Los Angeles, and then again a few days later, when they were seen hugging at the Los Angeles International Airport.

Jackson has since been spotted getting cozy with a mystery brunette at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

Kruger, meanwhile, has gone public with her romance with Norman Reedus, with the two — who met on the 2015 film Sky — stepping out in New York City in March for a sweet, PDA-filled stroll following repeated sightings together in previous weeks.

This ‘Game Of Thrones’ Actress Said TV’s ‘Lack Of Diversity’ Hurt Her Self-Esteem As A Child

Actress Nathalie Emmanuel recently opened up about the damaging nature of seeing predominantly white casts on television while growing up. 

In an interview with Hunger magazine, the “Game of Thrones” star, who is half Dominican said that she didn’t see people who reflected her racial identity during her childhood.

“For me, when I was growing up, not seeing anyone on television that looked like me or that I could identify with was really hard, and that can affect someone’s self-esteem hugely,” Emmanuel — who plays Missandei, a translator on “Game of Thrones” — told Hunger. 

Emmanuel, who also played Ramsey, a computer hacker in “Fast and Furious 7” lauded the movie’s casting for its exemplary diversity. But where the rest of the Hollywood ― whose diversity issue was bought to light in 2016 during the #OscarsSoWhite controversy ― is concerned, she said that despite the attempts at diverse casting, she doesn’t know how long-standing these efforts will be. 

“Will it be that they just do the one film and then it goes back?” she questioned. “If you go up for anything, you know there is always a cast of people and a small number of them are [from] a minority.

“The majority of the cast will be white with a few roles from a different ethnicity. Ultimately that’s not the world we live in,” she said.

This Actress Used Her Dress To Send A Powerful Message About The Travel Ban

Some pictures say a thousand words. Others say 10 incredibly powerful ones.

Actress Kathreen Khavari attended the Hollywood premiere of her HBO miniseries “Big Little Lies” on Tuesday, wearing a dress painted with the words, “My Iranian immigrant mother teaches your kids how to read.”

Iran, from which Khavari says she immigrated “as a fetus,” is one of seven nations named in President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Khavari’s parents immigrated through Scotland to the U.S., she wrote on Instagram, adding the tags “#noban #nowall #fucktrump #tbt.” 

My parents (and me as a fetus) in Scotland, on our way to immigrating to the US #noban #nowall #fucktrump #tbt

A photo posted by Kathreen Khavari (@kathreenkhavari) on

Her premiere dress was “brought to you by the threat of a fascist America,” she wrote, noting that “acrylic paint looks great on clothes.”

Khavari’s Instagram shows more of her political activism via clothing. Here she is wearing what looks like the same handwritten font on a shirt at the Women’s March in Los Angeles in January:

And here she is later that same month, wearing a “Muslim White Male Registry” T-shirt. She said in the comments that she made it herself.

Barbara Tarbuck, ‘General Hospital’ Actress, Dead At 74

Actress Barbara Tarbuck died of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare brain disorder, in her Los Angeles home on Monday at age 74. Her daughter, producer Jennifer Lane Connolly, confirmed the news to Variety. 

She was known for her long-running role as Lady Jane Jacks on ABC’s “General Hospital,” but she also appeared in TV series including “Dallas,” “NYPD Blue,” “Nip/Tuck,” “Medium,” “CSI: NY” and “Glee,” and as Mother Superior Claudia in “American Horror Story: Asylum.”

Tarbuck, born on Jan. 15, 1942, was a native of Detroit, Michigan, and began her career as a regular on AM Radio Station WWJ’s children’s series “Storyland.” She attended Wayne State University before receiving a master’s in theater from the University of Michigan. She then attended Indiana University to take part in its theater touring company and was soon granted a Fulbright Scholarship to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Following graduation, Tarbuck moved to New York to pursue acting. 

Although she was primarily a television actor, Tarbuck starred in movies including 1986’s “Short Circuit,” 1991’s “Curly Sue,” 1995’s “The Tie That Binds,” 2004’s “Walking Tall” and 2009’s “S. Darko.”

She was introduced on “General Hospital” in 1996 as the mother of Jax Jacks (Ingo Rademacher). After 41 episodes, she ended her run in 2010. 

Having also appeared on Broadway in the original productions of Neil Simon’s “Brighton Beach Memoirs” and David Mamet’s “The Water Engine,” Tarbuck went on to teach acting at UCLA. 

She is survived by her daughter Connolly, son-in-law Samuel Chawinga and two grandsons, Cianan and Cuinn Chawinga.

These 11 Women Are Vying For Best Supporting Actress At The 2017 Oscars

Of the Oscars’ four acting races, Best Supporting Actress may be the most unambiguous. The category seems to belong to the five women who received both Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations this week: Viola Davis (”Fences”), Naomie Harris (”Moonlight”), Nicole Kidman (”Lion”), Octavia Spencer (”Hidden Figures”) and Michelle Williams (”Manchester by the Sea”). The Critics’ Choice Awards, which issued prizes on Sunday, had only one amendment, spotlighting Janelle Monáe over Spencer, her co-star.

Everyone else who has flitted around this contest’s second-tier ranks now seems out of commission. Had I published these rankings a few weeks ago, I’d have included Helen Mirren (”Eye in the Sky”), Margo Martindale (”The Hollars”), Felicity Jones (”A Monster Calls”) and a smattering of others. But the derby is well underway, and there’s no use holding spots for yesterday’s horses. Even listing 11 women is a bit of a stretch, but here we go.

15 Of The Emmys’ 18 Leading Actress Nominees Are Over 40. This Is Huge.

This year’s Emmy nominations included surprises, wearyingly predictable nods, and a few glaring snubs, but one of the most striking things about the nominations had to do with age. Of the 18 leading actress nominees across comedy, drama, and mini-series, 15 of them are over the age of 40.

It would be nice if this wasn’t notable, but it is. And it’s awesome. 

In the category for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Amy Schumer, at 34, is the youngest actress nominated. The other nominees include Amy Poehler, Edie Falco and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The oldest is Lily Tomlin, who earned a nod for her funny, honest and nuanced performance in the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie.” Tomlin is 75. A woman her age has never been nominated in this category (prior to her, the oldest nominee was Betty White at 69 for “Golden Girls” in 1991). 

The age diversity among this year’s female nominees is even more significant when you count the supporting actress categories, which include women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, from 28-year-old Emilia Clarke from “Game of Thrones,” to 63-year old Christine Baranski from “The Good Wife.” A vast majority of these actresses, even if they aren’t over 40, are in their 30s. All of the actresses are playing characters who are age-appropriate.

This is, in a word, huge.

In a Hollywood landscape where 24-year-old Jennifer Lawrence consistently gets cast as a middle-aged single mom or 30-something divorcee, and where 26-year-old Emma Stone plays the charming young lover of men twice her age in Woody Allen movie after Woody Allen movie, it’s refreshing to see women of all ages being recognized and celebrated for playing complex, meaty roles across genres. 

Television has long been praised for being more daring and creative, and certainly more diverse when it comes to race and gender (though, of course, we have a long way to go — shows like “Jane the Virgin” and “Empire” were largely shut out of the major Emmy categories this year). This year, two African-American actresses are nominated for lead actress in a drama, and both of them (Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis) also happen to be in their 40s. 

As Davis said in a roundtable for The Hollywood Reporter, “I had never seen a 49-year-old, dark-skinned woman who is not a size two be a sexualized role in TV or film… I’m a sexual woman, but nothing in my career has ever identified me as a sexualized woman. I was the prototype of the ‘mommified’ role.”

Hollywood perpetuates the straight male fantasy that every woman who is on screen, no matter her age or station in life, should be “fuckable” (in the eyes of white heterosexual male viewers). But this year’s Emmy nominees prove that pandering to that kind of audience is unnecessary and boring — there’s so much more out there. Davis doesn’t have to play the mom or the “Law & Order” judge just because she’s 49, and conversely Amy Schumer doesn’t have to play the dumb blonde type — instead, she can satirize it. 

This is all to say that there’s some room for optimism. The Emmys, like many awards shows, are a great representation of where we’re at and where we have to go. There’s been a growing trend not only of complex women on the small screen, and a diversity in the types of actresses who get these roles, but also in the accolades and acknowledgement that these performances are getting. That’s progress. Last year, the number of nominated lead actresses over 40 was 14. This year’s, it’s 15. That number — and the rich, interesting performances that go along with those stats — should only grow.

Check out all the female acting nominees below, and rejoice:

Diana Douglas, Actress And Mother Of Michael Douglas, Dead At 92

Diana Douglas (nee Diana Dill), actress and mother of Michael Douglas, has died of cancer at 92, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Douglas was married to fellow actor Kirk Douglas for eight years before their divorce in 1951. Together, the pair had two sons, Michael and Joel. In 1956, Diana Douglas married actor Bill Darrid, whom she remained with until his death in 1992. She married Donald Webster, a former treasury official in the Nixon administration, in 2002.

Anne Meara, Actress And Mother Of Ben Stiller, Dies At 85

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress and comedian Anne Meara, whose comic work with husband Jerry Stiller helped launch a 60-year career in film and TV, has died. She was 85.

Jerry Stiller and son Ben Stiller say Meara died Saturday. No other details were provided.

The Stiller family released a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday describing Jerry Stiller as Meara’s “husband and partner in life.”

“The two were married for 61 years and worked together almost as long,” the statement said.

The couple performed as Stiller & Meara on “The Ed Sullivan Show” and other programs in the 1960s and won awards for the radio and TV commercials they made together. Meara also appeared in dozens of films and TV shows, including a longtime role on “All My Children” and recurring appearances on “Rhoda,” ”Alf,” ”Sex and the City” and “The King of Queens.” She shared the screen with her son in 2006’s “Night at the Museum.”

Meara was twice nominated for an Emmy Award for her supporting role on “Archie Bunker’s Place,” along with three other Emmy nods, most recently in 1997 for her guest-starring role on “Homicide.” She won a Writers Guild Award for co-writing the 1983 TV movie “The Other Woman.”

Besides her husband and son, Meara is survived by her daughter, Amy, and several grandchildren.

The family statement said: “Anne’s memory lives on in the hearts of daughter Amy, son Ben, her grandchildren, her extended family and friends, and the millions she entertained as an actress, writer and comedienne.”

A Nearly Unrecognizable Game of Thrones Actress, and More Best Dressed From BAFTA TV Awards

Across the pond in London last night, Brits celebrated their TV stars with the BAFTA TV Awards, and the fashion, as you’d hope, was simply smashing (Briticism required). The best-dressed mix included actresses we’ve have grown to love, plus new names with style so sharp (not to mention a Game of Thrones actor or two), it might be time to start tuning in internationally. Take a look:

sophie-mcshera-black-white-dress-bafta-tv-awards-2015
Sophie McShera, Downton Abbey‘s Daisy, still surprises when she’s in anything but a kitchen apron (and there have been so many seasons for us to get used to the phenomeon!). Last night, she picked an elegantly simple combo of floor-sweeping skirt and cropped top.

maisie-williams-blue-lace-dress-bafta-tv-awards
The other surprise glamour girl was Maisie Williams, who looked sweet and super feminine in a periwinkle lace pick by Self Portrait. Her Game of Thrones arc might have her out of the boyish togs, but it’s still doubtful that anything this divine is coming up for Arya.

ophelia-lovibond-snake-print-dress-bafta-tv-awards
British beauty Ophelia Lovibond has made her mark in U.S. television, appearing stateside in Elementary, and one could argue our style sense has rubbed off on her. Rather than go the prim English rose route, she picked a crop-top gown with a scaly-but-glam snake print.

donna-air-pink-dress-bafta-tv-awards-2015
The best angle of Brit TV presenter Donna Air’s peachy gown was from the side, where the shape of the sculpted hip panels was on full display. That construction wasn’t just for looks, either—the custom House of Fraser piece had LED lights on the sides and bodice that lit up.

dianna-agron-black-sheer-dress-bafta-tv-awards-2015
The night’s award for chicest American in London certainly went to Dianna Agron, who did all-black with sheer sleeves that reached to her wrists. Her top is from Simone Rocha and the skirt is Comme des Garçons.

For further proof that it’s insane to see favorite TV characters IRL, please reference all of these Game of Thrones women.

So This Is What It Means To Be A ‘Brave’ Actress

You can be deemed a “brave” actress for adopting a foreign accent or even playing the villain. But when you’re the romantic lead and don’t look like you walked out of the pages of Vogue, you’re on a whole other level, according to some critics.

Sketch comedy group It’s Megan skewers the sexist silliness in the “So Brave” video posted on Funny Or Die.

And you know what? For tackling this subject, It’s Megan is so brave.

Why Actress Darby Stanchfield Refuses To Hug ‘Scandal’ Co-Star Scott Foley

Actress Darby Stanchfield may be the only woman in the world to ever turn down a hug from Scott Foley.

After Foley revealed Stanchfield’s staunch stance on hugs in a HuffPost Live interview last month, Stanchfield stopped by the studio to set the record straight.

As a new cast member on season two of the hit ABC show, Foley was a little too reserved for Stanchfield. While the rest of the actors behaved like rowdy “14-year-olds at summer camp” during each table read, Foley kept his cool.

“We’re all like pounding on the tables and high-fiving each other and hugging each other and laughing and crying through the table reads and such,” she said. “And he had this energy, and Portia de Rossi [who guest stars this season] went through it too, of like, ‘Okay, they seem cool, but is this real?’”

After picking up on Foley’s calm demeanor, Stanchfield opted for a handshake on their their first meeting, and the formal greeting just stuck.

“I shook his hand for the first time I met him, and it just kind of felt like this joke — like this natural thing of, like, we’re on handshake terms,” she said. “It felt like a thing of respect at the beginning, then it just became this joke of, like, ‘Dude, I don’t hug you.’”

Sheila MacRae Dead: ‘Honeymooners’ Actress Dies At 92

ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Sheila MacRae, a veteran stage, film and TV performer best known for playing Alice Kramden in the 1960s re-creation of “The Honeymooners,” has died. She was 92.

The actress died Thursday at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood, N.J., MacRae’s granddaughter, Allison Mullavey, told The Associated Press on Friday. “She had a great life, my mom, she really did. She was quite a broad,” said her daughter, actress Heather MacRae. “Fascinating, almost like an Autie Mame character.”

Shirley Jones, in a statement released by MacRae’s family, called Sheila MacRae “a great lady” with extraordinary talent who “helped me to be a better mother.”

MacRae, who suffered from dementia but was otherwise in good health, had been hospitalized for a minor surgical procedure. Her death came suddenly Thursday night, apparently the result of old age, said Heather MacRae.

“She lived a good life and a long life,” Mullavey said. “We’ll miss her.”

A singer, dancer and actress, MacRae was married to “Oklahoma!” and “Carousel” star Gordon MacRae for 26 years, and they appeared together in 1964 on “The Ed Sullivan Show” when the Beatles were featured.

She had put her career on hold while she devoted herself to MacRae and their four children, Heather MacRae said. After helping her husband with his nightclub act, she decided to join him and her career took off, her daughter said. The couple appeared together in musicals including “Guys and Dolls,” with Sheila MacRae taking her performance as Miss Adelaide to Broadway in 1965.

The couple divorced in 1967.

In the 1950s version of “The Honeymooners,” Audrey Meadows starred with Jackie Gleason as lovebirds and sparring partners Ralph and Alice Kramden. Sheila MacRae replaced Meadows as Alice in a later version from 1966-70 on “The Jackie Gleason Show.” MacRae was the last survivor from the ’60s edition of the Gleason show. Jane Kean, who played Trixie Norton, died last fall.

“My mother referred to herself as the last Mrs. Kramden,” Heather MacRae said.

After her divorce from Gordon MacRae, she was married to Ronald Wayne, who produced Gleason’s show, her daughter said. They later divorced.

Sheila MacRae played the role of Madelyn Richmond on the soap opera “General Hospital” and was host of “The Sheila MacRae Show.”

A native of London, England, Sheila MacRae emigrated to America with her parents during World War II.

Survivors include children Heather and William “Gar” MacRae, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Daughter Meredith died in 2000 and son Robert in 2010, Heather MacRae said.

Funeral services for her mother were pending, she said.

Girls Actress Shiri Appleby Talks Balancing Motherhood, Directing and Roswell

shiri appleby

Shiri Appleby has been very busy lately. On top of appearing in HBO’s Girls as Adam’s Girlfriend, Natalia, Appleby is also in the midst of filming a pilot for Lifetime (Unreal), and directing a one act play in Los Angeles.

Appleby says about directing:

I’ve been acting since I was a child so to move the pieces around and watch a piece evolve from the outside has given me a ton of perspective and insight into the process, as well as clarity about the role of the actor in any given situation.

When she’s not working, she is balancing it all with being a parent to her daughter, Natalie.

“When I am not working, I spend all my time with my daughter and when I am working I try to let myself have the space to be an individual.” Appleby says, explaining how she keeps a healthy balance between work life and motherhood.

…I tell myself that if I’m not with her, I might as well make the most of the time and do my very best. Being a woman who is trying to parent, be in a relationship and manage a career is still a work in progress, but it’s working for me at the current time, and I am enjoying it more than I ever thought possible — quite frankly, I’ve never been so fulfilled.

She is most commonly recognized today from her role on the hit HBO series Girls, which is premiering its third season on Sunday, January 12th. Appleby, who had a great time working on the set, will be making an appearance this season. When asked what her favorite part about working on Girls was, she replied,

My favorite part about being on the set of Girls was how much conversation and care went into each moment that ends up on screen. Lena (Dunham) and Jenni Konner have created a truly creative environment, which is why I think they are able to produce television that is so daring, fresh and real. I feel lucky to have been cast in that show in that they gave me the opportunity to show myself, the audience and the industry that I am capable of going dark, of portraying awkward, uncomfortable moments in life. As an actor, whatever type of role you become known for is usually what people want you to do again, which can stagnate your creativity. It takes being cast by important filmmakers in varying roles to explore the diversity of your talent. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed getting down and dirty and crawling out of the box I had been in professionally for so long, and yes, Natalia makes an appearance in season 3.

In addition to enjoying her time on set, she noticed there was a difference between working on Network Television and working on an HBO series.

It is as basic as what footage the directors have to shoot. On network television, most directors wouldn’t be as risky as to not properly cover each scene with the standard master, two shoot, singles and tight close-ups. Maybe they would add a steady shot, and one fancy move to get in, or out of the scene but other than that, they shoot what is expected of them, word for word, because network television pays significant money and they want to be asked back to the party — and quite frankly, I don’t blame them. While I was shooting Girls, one scene as scripted wasn’t working, and Lena and Jenni had the creative freedom to completely improv the scene without a bunch of phone calls or complete chaos on set. It is invaluable that the creator and executive producer is directing/writing/starring in each episode of their show. Usually on network television, the creator and/or executive producer is in his/her office — which could be in another state or country — breaking stories, dealing with politics and keeping the machine moving so they rarely appear on set. I believe most of the scripts for the Girls season are broken, arched out and partially written before they start shooting, so everyone who is making the show can be an active participant in how the show gets made…

Even after being an established actress (having been on hit shows like ER and Chicago Fire and recently staring as the lead character in the Lifetime movie Kristin’s Christmas Past, Appleby is still hoping to reach an important goal.

“In film, my dream scenario would be to have Nicole Holofcener as a director.”

Holofcener has directed both a few episodes of the hit HBO show’s Sex Feet Under and Sex And The City.

“She has a wonderful style that is so simple and clean, and each one of her films so beautifully expresses the plight of a woman. I would do everything possible to be in her next film — she’s it for me!”

Appleby (36) is still recognized today from her portrayal of Liz Parker from the hit show Roswell. The show aired from 1999 to 2002 and had a huge cult following. Fans of the WB show even sent in bottles of Tabasco sauce to help persuade the station from cancelling the show when it wasn’t doing well. Fans of Roswell will be happy to hear that she still runs into the other actors from time to time.

“I ran into Majandra (Delfino, who played Maria) the other day. Colin (Hanks, who played Alex) and I run in a similar circle, so I see him from time to time. It was so many years ago and I am so proud of what each of them has done with their careers and lives.”

Even more importantly, she would be up for doing a Roswell movie.

I would LOVE the idea of doing a Roswell movie. The idea has been mentioned from fans for years. When the Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign happened last year, I looked into what it would take for Roswell movie to happen, and what I found out is that there are a lot of bigger players than me that would need to get interested to make something like that happen. I wouldn’t say it’s impossible but…

As a huge fan of Roswell myself, this is music to my ears. So just one question. Who should we start sending the Tabasco sauce to?
