The Actor's Diet podcast is an audio extension of actor/filmmaker Lynn Chen's award-winning food blog. In each episode, Lynn chats with people in her community - artists and foodies - about their history with eating, body image, and current culinary obsessions.
In the early 90's, Broadway was very important to me. Thus, Daisy Eagan was a huge deal. She is the youngest actress to win a Tony Award for The Secret Garden, and I was really excited to see her in HBO'S GIRLS recently, playing the film version of Lena Dunham. We talk about prop food on The Secret Garden, her mom's cooking, Chicken Tetrazzini dreams, the politics of food, the definition of a casserole, and what the crafts service on the set of GIRLS was like. You can listen to the episode and subscribe on iTunes. Theme music by Podcast Guest #85, Goh Nakamura.
