NETFLIX HOUSE OF CARDS
A Character Who Was Only Supposed To Appear Once Accidentally Became A Reoccurring Character.
When David Fincher was casting the pilot episode, Rachel Brosnahan earned the one-off role as the teenage prostitute character Rachel Posner with only a two-line audition. Because of the expansion of the Russo storyline, Rachel was brought back for the larger storyline but the producers didn’t even know if she would be able to handle to larger role. She ended up appearing in 7 of the 13 episodes.
“Beau Willimon, who is the voice of the show, wrote this incredibly huge character for her and we were going, ‘we’re not sure if Rachel is gonna do this. Like, we brought her in to open the glove compartment and go ‘here you go’. And she’s amazing. But we sat there going, ‘we can’t suddenly change people and audition someone new. And there are these five-six page scenes and we gave it to someone who came in to just play a one-off, but you go, let’s follow this and see where this goes.”
ATC is proud to be teaching Improv with Ms. Barthelmess' eigth grade acting classes at Wilmette Junior High School through the District 39 Educational Foundation's Gripp Grant!
