'Mr. Robot' Creator Hints At The Romantic Storyline You've Been Waiting For
Huffington Post - over 1 year
WARNING: Spoilers below for Season 1 of "Mr. Robot."  At a panel discussion as part of PaleyFest 2015 in New York, an audience member asked "Mr. Robot" creator Sam Esmail whether the "obvious or not-so-obvious" love story between Elliot (Rami Malek) and Angela (Portia Doubleday) would develop further in Season 2.  "Well, obviously I'm not going to answer that question," Esmail responded, before, in fact, answering it. He first came up against it reading viewers' reactions to the pilot episode. "Everyone was like, 'Oh, here we go, it's will-they-or-won't-they?' And don't you think what we did instead was far more interesting?" he asked the audience, to applause and cheers. "[The question] may come back," Esmail added. "I would be a fool not to go down that route." "Oh, slow down!" Malek responded. (Joking, duh.) Four cast members, including Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) and Darlene (Carly Chaikin), joined Esmail onstage for the event Wednesda ...

Interview: Director Kimberly Peirce on Remaking <i>Carrie</i>
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Writer-director Kimberly Peirce burst onto the film scene in 1999 with the gut-wrenching docudrama Boys Don't Cry, which also netted star Hilary Swank the first of her two Academy Awards. For her latest directorial effort, Peirce has entered genre territory by tackling MGM's new adaptation of Carrie, the seminal Stephen King novel that was first brought to the screen in 1976 by director Brian De Palma (and which has been remade and sequelized a few times since). For Peirce, the decision to mount a new remake such an iconic film (with Chloë Grace Moretz stepping into Sissy Spacek's shoes as the troubled teen with the TK) came not from a desire to step over De Palma, but rather to pay homage to King's prose. As she explains in our lengthy chat, she put a lot of thought and effort into making her version of Carrie (which also stars Julianne Moore) stand out and stand apart. Check out the transcript below (but be aware that there may be some spoilers about the film's climax, so tread ligh ...

Kristen Stewart's Mother Jules Stewart Makes Directorial Debut With K-11
US Magazine - almost 4 years
If you've ever wondered where Kristen Stewart gets that charming edge from, just ask her mother! Seasoned Hollywood script-supervisor Jules Stewart makes her directorial debut with K-11, a gripping prison drama that's a far cry from her daughter's Twilight Saga blockbusters. "I can't watch Spider-Man anymore," Jules tells Us Weekly. "I just can't watch six variations of the same thing -- it just makes me a little crazy." Instead, Jules sought out to make a film that she hoped would make people think a little bit more about something unique and different. PHOTOS: Famous moms and daughters Set inside a section of the Los Angeles County Jail reserved for LGBT inmates, K-11 explores the politics of race and gender equality through Raymond Saxx (Goran Visnjik), a businessman who is forced to deal with violence, crooked cops and a manipulative transgendered inmate named Mousey (Kate Del Castillo) on his quest to escape K-11, all while piecing together how he ended up there in the fi ...

    TWENTIES
  • 2009
    Age 20
    She appeared in the short film "18" in 2009, about a girl dealing with the end of her mother's life.
    More Details Hide Details Doubleday starred opposite Michael Cera in the teen comedy Youth in Revolt (2009), based on the 1993 novel of the same name by C. D. Payne. Doubleday described her character as "mean" and "really complex" to the Los Angeles Times. She plays Sheeni Saunders, an imaginative girl with a dreary life who meets Nick Twisp (Michael Cera) while on a family vacation. The film, directed by Miguel Arteta, premiered at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. As of January 2010, Doubleday studies psychology in college and was considering pre-med. She described herself as a "tomboy" to the Los Angeles Times; Doubleday played soccer for twelve years. She is working on the film Touchback, based on an award winning short film, and is working on another short with actor Alex Frost, directed by Marvin Jarrett (the founder of Nylon magazine).
    She is perhaps best known for her roles in the 2009 film Youth in Revolt as Sheeni Saunders and in the 2011 film Big Mommas: Like Father Like Son as Jasmine Lee.
    More Details Hide Details Doubleday was born and raised in Los Angeles, the daughter of Christina Hart and Frank Doubleday. She grew up in a show business family: her parents are former professional actors, and her older sister, Kaitlin, is also an actress. Her mother now works in the entertainment industry as a writer, and also produces plays. Doubleday attended the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies, a magnet school in west Los Angeles. Doubleday first appeared in a commercial for Goldfish crackers at the age of eight, and had a small role in the film Legend of the Mummy (1997). Her parents insisted that she finish high school before pursuing a career in acting. Doubleday was cast in the pilot episode of United States of Tara, a television series created by Diablo Cody. Doubleday played 15-year-old Kate, the daughter of Toni Collette's character. Doubleday was replaced however, when the series' creative team chose to go in a different direction with the character.
