Leelee Sobieski Bagel, On a not unusual day in the early 90′s, the Trevor Day School cafeteria was busy feeding a mixture of children and teachers, but on this seemingly normal day there happened to be a casting director with a sharp eye for talent among the mix. Though unbeknownst to anyone, this casting director was about to spark a change in a young girls life.
Leelee Sobieski was just a preteen, but she held a vision – instilled in her by her artistic parents – of what she thought she’d become. Like many her age, she could recite a long list of possible career choices, and those in the top running were following in her parents footsteps. Her dream was to be a writer like Elizabeth, her mom, or a painter like Jean, her father. However when the casting director approached her in her New York City school, Leelee became curious about acting.
“They asked me to come into the casting director’s office and meet with them,” Leelee says. “I was absolutely awful. I didn’t do a very good job. But that’s not important. I thought: ‘Well, that’s kind of strange and I really sucked but it is kind of amusing that, out of the blue, I get asked to do this when it’s the last thing I expected, so I might as well give it a try.’ And that was kind of my approach. If, all of a sudden, something changes in one direction, I’ll give it a try. And then, if it works, go for it. If not, then change to another direction. Then I took some acting lessons and started to like it more and more.”
Before long Leelee was getting parts in commercials and guesting in TV shows. What started as a fun curiosity, was becoming a new creative outlet, and was starting to change her life.
