How did you end up casting Kristen as the lead?
It worked out for me. I was asked what my ultimate dream cast was, as I didn't really have anyone in mind while I wrote it. I assumed it would be micro-budget so I didn't expect the star to be the biggest star in the universe! I chose Kristen as my dream casting choice, and thankfully once asked she agreed. I think she's phenomenal and I was obsessed by her performance in The Runaways. She is a very open actress and so dedicated to creating a real and honest moment in her scene. She wants her character to be authentic and it was a dream to have her in this role.
