How does a 17-year-old with one credit as an extra end up in the audition room for the lead in one of most seminal movies of its decade? And perhaps more importantly, how does an introspective, “not highly social” student deal with the surreal experience of having her privacy go away overnight? For Jennifer Beals, feeling like an equal-opportunity outsider due to her mixed race and the one-two punch of losing her dad and discovering her family was shockingly poor at age nine may have provided the best, if uninvited, coping mechanisms. Her early-onset imperturbability went far in helping navigate the pitfalls that can come with early fame as young girl in her industry.
As humble as she is beautiful, the actress who says she’d never make it on So You Think You Can Dance shares the blow-by-blow experience of her Flashdance audition (the breakthrough a role she came very close to turning down), dealing with nudity in the boys’ club that was Hollywood filmmaking in the 80s, and returning to school at Yale immediately afterward. Given that she’s continued to take on roles portraying strong, independent women – and often using them to integrate acting with activism – it’s surprising to learn she’s often happiest retreating to the rich, solitary realm of her imagination. But when she tastes a role she wants, watch out…she’s ready to come out swinging.
Talking to Beals is inspiring in so many ways, but perhaps most so because after decades of work in what can be a very challenging business, and tough for women in particular, she still feels joy at the thrill of jumping in.
