Abigail Breslin plays a young singer/songwriter in her new film Janie Jones. In the movie, Breslin’s Janie is trying to connect with her musician father (who didn’t know she existed) while her mother enters rehab.
The 14 year-old actress really liked playing Janie as she even got to drive for the film (she was only 13 at the time) and scared one of the assistants! Breslin said:
“I actually drove in the parking lot and it was awesome, “she said. “I did the actual stunt thing where I almost hit a car. Everybody was fearful those 2 days. We had this one production assistant, Ben, who was in the back seat while I was driving. I could tell he was so afraid and thinking ‘Why did they put me in the car with this lunatic?’ ”
But the illicit driving experience was every kid’s dream.
“It was fun,” says Breslin “My brothers (Spencer, age 18 and Ryan, 25) got their licenses both of them like 3 months ago. I’m like ‘I’m more experienced than you guys are.’”
Breslin did her own singing for the part and while she was nervous – she says she had lots of fun experiencing something new.
