CLAIRE MAKES IT BIG

Paige plays as Bronwyn Cole, the actress Claire substitutes herself with.
TRIVIA & FACTS
- Apparently the story is based on a real incident involving Kathy Bates who was shut out of a role (originally written for her) she had played on stage in “FRANKIE AND JOHNNY”, when Hollywood made a movie version. Michelle Pfeiffer was cast and all references to the character’s size were dropped from the script.
It won the George Sidney Independent Film Competition for Best Feature at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival.
