OK you guyz…need I say anything other than Rachael Leigh Cook!?!? I’m a major 90s and early 2000s movie fan, so meeting Josie from Josie and the Pussycats and Laney Boggs from She’s All That was ToTaLLy and unequivocally the highlight of the Firework App launch party for me! Virtual video games and Two Bit Circus are MeGa-Kewl, but…JOSIE!!!!
If you haven’t seen those movies, they pretty much define teen and young entertainment of their time, similar to how John Hughes movies defined the 80s. Rachael is also in Nancy Drew and My First Wedding plus a bunch of TV series: Las Vegas, Psych, Titan Maximum, Dawson’s Creek, Perception on TNT etc. Yeah, it’s a long list! She’s in a new, modern take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream now too!
Star Wars fans may want to tune in there too! If you really know your pre-Disney Star Wars lore, you may have heard of Jaesa William. She’s a Padawan in Star Wars: The Old Republic…who turned to the Dark Side (and is, well, different than pretty much all other Sith we’ve seen). Any chance of her appearing as a Sith in a post-Disney Star Wars world? You know you wanna know, so I’m asking (it’s a Piperazzi thing)! Rachael also does voice work in Robot Chicken (Beru Lars, Evil-Lyn, Rey and Princess Zelda!),Batman Beyond, and Kingdom Hearts.
Oh, interesting extra info…Rachael Leigh Cook is married to The Vampire Diaries and The Originals alumni Daniel Gillies (aka Elijah Mikaelson).
This one ranks up there like with the Bryce Dallas Howard and Idina Menzel interviews for me, so I hope you love it too!
Thank you so much for watching, guyz!
