Interview With Danica McKellar By Chris
Danica McKellar is one talented person who can act and
also has got into directing.
I wanted to find out from this great actress.
She has a short film called Speechless which
she directed and stared in.
1. How did you get into acting?
Started when I was eight, took some classes at Lee
Strasberg Institute and began doing theater through their
program. I got an agent at the age of 10 and did my first
commercial (Volkswagen Club) a few months later, several
more commercials and episodics and then landed The Wonder
Years when I was 12.
2. How has your life changed since The Wonder
Since TWY, I went to UCLA and graduated with a degree in
Mathematics, and now I’ve been acting again– I’ve been on
The West Wing for the last year or so, and I just got back
from Bulgaria, shooting a movie for the Sci-Fi channel that
will be out early next year. (They don’t have a title for
it yet) As it gets closer to the release time, I’ll make
sure my official website puts up a notice. I’ve dabbled a
bit in filmmaking, but for now my focus remains on acting!
That, and the various cartoon voiceovers that keep me busy
in between acting gigs. (more info can be found at my
website, mentioned below, or on my listing at IMDB.com)
3. What has been your favourite storyline on The Wonder
My favorite episode was the pilot episode. I think it’s
some of the best TV ever produced, and I’ve always felt
lucky to be a part of it. The storyline includes the
untimely death of my character’s brother in Vietnam. The
first kiss between Winnie and Kevin, in a moment of sadness
and comfort, completes the episode.
4. What has been your favourite character to
Elsie Snuffin on “The West Wing.” You just don’t come
across writing like Aaron Sorkin’s very often.
5. What would we find in your stereo at the
Billy Joel and the Beatles.
6. Who are your favourite music artists?
Billy Joel, Elton John, Aretha Franklin
7. If you could remake any movie what would it
A Few Good Men
8. Who are your favourite actors?
Shirley MacLaine, John Spencer, Richard Dreyfuss, Steve
Martin, Allison Janney, Marlon Brando, Bill Murray
9. What is your favourite music movie eg Spinal
A Mighty Wind
10. Who would you most like to work with?
11. Where do you think you will be in ten
Acting and Directing in films
12. What movies have you seen recently that you have
The Terminal– by far the best movie out this summer!
13. What are some of your favourite movies?
Jaws, Shawshank Redemption, A Few Good Men, Shindler’s
List, What About Bob?, Zoolander, Parenthood
14. Is Speechless going to be released on dvd?
Not that I know of at this time; Hypnotic Distribution
bought the rights to it, so you’d have to ask them. (And
please do!) I’d love to see it released on DVD. It’s the
start of my filmmaking career, which I love almost as much
as I love acting:)
Thanks for your time any last words
Thanks for your interest in me, and please check out my
Thanks and have a great day!
Special thanks to Danica and her people who run her
