Gina Wilhelm Actress – A New Twist on the Period Drama
Jessica Biel has done several action roles, notably “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “Cellular.”
So when she got her role in the period piece “Easy Virtue,” she had to study, mainly watching Katharine Hepburn and Jean Harlow.
Even with the study, she was still nervous going into the film. She was the only American in the movie, which also stars Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas.
Firth says she needn’t have worried. He found her enchanting, and said that “The entire crew was reduced to poor saps.”
In the movie, she plays a blond bombshell race car driver.
The entire movie should be a departure from the standard period piece. It’s being directed by Stephan Elliott, who helmed “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.”
