Actress Alison Brie was recently interviewed by InStyle magazine and discussed the style and character transformation of her character, Trudy Campbell in the popular television series "Mad Men". She noted how her character was a very 'fashion-forward' woman even in the 60's and the changes but that what made the character so interesting was the growth she made as a person. Her character started out as one motivated by money and impressed by appearances but the character changed when she wanted to conceive and start a family.
Interestingly this is when Alison Brie truly started to shine as an actress because she showed the different dimensions of her character and was able to unlayer her emotions and show her dramatic range. Entertainment insiders, in particular television and film directors and producers were able to see this actress who is known for her comedic roles show some grit and substance.
She showed the growth of this 1960's woman who was very materialistic and concerned about appearances who by the time the script called for her to kick her husband out of the home was able to do so convincingly because of how Alison Brie had changed her image with the audience.
Alison Brie is known for her comedic side in the hit television show "Community" and she is currently making her fans throughout the Internet laugh with her "hilarious" Smirnoff commercials made with Adam Scott. But Alison Brie is known to filmmakers as not only an actress who can make people laugh but an actress who has dramatic range.
