Claire Danes was joined by Nikki Blonsky and Emile Hirsch yesterday at the 67th Annual Motion Picture Club awards luncheon in NYC. Claire has been spending most of her time on the east coast preparing for her upcoming role on Broadway in Pygmalian. The show marks Claire's professional on-stage debut, although most people think she's had more theatrical experience. She said,
"I think people assume that I had done theater because I live in New York and I have danced. So I am offered a lot of theater for that reason -- because of that misconception -- but nothing really as gripping as this ever came along. I think it's still so provocative and fresh and current."
We still think of Claire as Angela on My So-Called Life, but it's great to see her growing up, branching out and trying new things.
