Most people might not realize that a lot of the celebrities that they see on television and in film audition for Hollywood blockbusters but never get the part. This is the case of Bijou Phillips when she auditioned for the role of Mia Torreto in the Fast and Furious franchise.
Phillips was not the only great star that tried out for the role other notable actresses such as Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kirsten Dunst, Jessica Biel and Natalie Portman. Mia Toretto is the girlfriend of the main character Brian O’Connor (Paul Walker) and the little sister of the film’s other leading man Dom (Vin Diesel). Bijou missed out on the role because producers decided to go with Jordana Brewster for the part.
Phillips is not sad about not being cast in that great series because she has been busy establishing her career. She has made numerous films and television appearances. Though she is not a household name many people would probably recognize her if they saw her face.
This young lady is mostly known for her role as Lucy Carlyle on the program Raising Hope. Phillips has yet to land a role that will really make her stand out among her peers but if she does people will definitely remember this talented and beautiful young actress.
