Quote: "At the time, I wanted to be Meryl Streep. I was much more interested in challenges. And when you're a female at the age I was, there's the leading parts and the character parts. And the character parts are the ones that are interesting. So for me I had this whole idea of who Edna was. She was this girl who was probably a cheerleader in high school but things just didn't work out for her the way she thought they were going to, and she ended up being a really frustrated mess. And there obviously was in the written repartee between her and Harold.|
So I when I went into the audition I did not read the character as the stereotype that was written. And if you don't go in and be the character, you're not going to get anything in this business. So I came in with curlers in my hair, bad shoes, no makeup and a bathrobe. Steve Miner and I just laughed through the whole thing." - pg. 87, Crystal Lake Memories
