Gotham Magazine has a stunning photoshoot and brief interview with Rachelle Lefevre. They talk about her upcoming roles and fashion.
While Lefevre’s upcoming projects will certainly keep her from being typecast, they also give the actress a chance to walk a mile in some very different shoes. In Barney’s Version, she plays the manic-depressive, hippie-poet first wife of costar Paul Giamatti. In Casino Jack, she’s a Washington, DC, power player (opposite Kevin Spacey and Jon Lovitz), a character that’s based on real life press secretary Emily Miller.
“We’d gotten the suits together and [when we went] shopping for shoes, I bought these intensely spiky Fendi and Christian Dior stilettos,” says Lefevre. “I felt she was a little bit ‘vanity first,’ and it helped me find her as a character. And I do that without judgment— depending on how you grow up and the circles you move in, you value different things, and I saw her as valuing really good heels.”
