Four For Friday - The Compound Part II: She Was Nearly a Household Name - An Intercerebellar Blind Item

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about this B+ list actress and her mentally unsound anarchist mother. Here is perhaps the defining chapter in the whole saga.

Our actress, who gained fame at a young age for playing a famous historical figure, was being courted by this A++ list director for the lead role in his latest “game changing” mega-blockbuster. It was because of her star-making role as the historical figure that our director wanted her to play this character, which for all intents and purposes was the same historical figure. Had she landed this role, she would certainly be a household name.

However, the big-four agency representing the actress who ultimately did get the part had other ideas. They convinced the director and his team that she was away making another movie.

A framed conceptual drawing of herself as the lead character, with a handwritten note from the director, hangs on a wall inside The Compound.

Shortly after this took place, our actress and her mother were partners in crime, and they made headlines when they found a way of interrupting a meeting between two world leaders. One of these world leaders was and still is a political darling of the Hollywood establishment. This and other activities led to her being shut out of almost all major projects for many years, until just a few years ago, when she landed a role on this major network period-drama series.

While she was filming the series, the director came knocking again. He wanted our actress to play a different role in the sequels he was planning to his mega-blockbuster. So our actress desperately scrambled to have herself written off the show, but this time her mother got involved, sending the agents and producers in circles until nobody knew what was happening. By the time her role on the show ended, the sequels were cast.

she looks like she works some every year.

rosemary booker said...

Shannon Sossamon was scouted on the street when she was 18+ and she quit acting by choice when she got pregnant.

Jessie said...

Pretty sure it's Q'orianka Kilcher (The New World - played Pocahontas when she was 14), James Cameron (Avatar), Zoe Saldana, Obama and Peruvian President Alan Garcia

Jessie +1

"they made headlines when they found a way of interrupting a meeting between two world leaders."

Seems like this should be a big clue.

Tricia13 said...

What was the network period drama she was on though?
Didn’t know much about her at all... wow-beautiful girl

Jewel's cousin

Period drama "The Alienist"

Angela said...

A small issue with the title...

Avatar didn't make Zoe Saldana a household name.

From Wikipedia:

On June 1, 2010, Kilcher and her mother were arrested after Kilcher chained herself to the gates in front of the White House in Washington, D.C. while her mother poured black paint on her to signify oil. Kilcher was protesting President Barack Obama's meeting with Peruvian President Alan Garcรญa, accusing the latter of selling land in the Amazon rainforest to corporations while suppressing indigenous protests.[16] She and her mother were charged with disorderly conduct.[17] The charges were dropped on June 6, 2011 after the two completed community service.

Well done Jessie!

Her wiki (part of it above) fills in a lot

She was good and I thought stood out in The Alienist

Brayson87 said...

Good work everybody! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Guesser said...

We all know who Zoe Saldana is,@Angela. But I would like to know other things they did politically,as this is something most would be sympathetic to. Also,I want to refer to the earlier blind that this is connected to.

Guesser said...

+Jessie!

@E.

Oh, is that who that was? The dumb maid?

BRAD PITT said...

fame early age = Q'orianka Kilcher

historical figure = Pocahontas

A list director = James Cameron

game changing mega-blockbuster = Avatar

Zoe Saldana more or less played Pocahontas in Avatar

BRAD PITT said...

if James Cameron was worried about upsetting the powers that be would he have allowed this dialogue in avatar ..

"This is how it's done, when people are sittin' on shit you want you make em your enemy then you justify taking it "

Angela said...

@Guesser
You know Zoe Saldana because of her other franchises, Star Trek and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Who even remembers that Sam Worthington is the male lead in Avatar?

MeliticusBee said...

The point was that had Kilcher played in Avatar...she WOULD be a household name....but since she did not - few people know who she is. It was not about whether Avatar made Zoe Saldana known...just that Kilcher missed out....

and that her mom is a nutcase.

and Obama is Hollywood's bitch....or Hollywood is Obama's bitch or something bitchy about Hollywood and Obama.

MeliticusBee said...

and for reference...
here is the first blind

MeliticusBee said...

and just so I can keep serial posting...
her name is "recognizable" because of Jewel and the Kilcher fam in Alaska that did reality show (which was excellent BTW)

and here is a listing of the compound

if it is expired...click and search for "nexus"

@MeliticusBee

The comments for the first blind item were right on the money. The source for this is someone who had serious issues with her mother and tried to depict her as a monster.
Because this new blind item is just a collection of stuff taken from Kilcher's Wikipedia entry with some rephrasing, as it's easy to get the natives here restless by alluding to names such as Obama.
Else, why would someone focus on the mother being a bad tenant in the first blind, then drop something much more interesting about the famous daughter in the sequel?

MeliticusBee said...

Don't be a dunce
Because literally - no one guessed correctly in the first compound post.

E said...

@Flashy that was her. The entire series, while interesting was basically unwatchable due to the current trend of filming everything in the lowest possible light. But she was good I thought

Post Cards From The Edge said...

Not going to lie...reading the other blind again, I'm starting to think the moms interference with Hollywood elites isn't that bad considering all the filth we hear about. Taking advantage of the kids not cool but maybe these kids are outcasts from their family or society at large.

Guesser said...

@Angela,not me. And everyone was all over the place in the replies, so more clues were needed. Calling her Mother an anarchist made everyone think the protest was against Trump or Bush. Stating a fact is not just to rile us up. If anything,leaving it out gives one pause as to why she would be blackballed. The issues might be the tight reign her Mom has on her, that seems to harm the careers of adult women. Anyway,thanks @ MeliticusBee, for the link and argument.

StheNine said...

off topic,but remember how Jewel started as a cruchy earthy granola singer then come out with an album were she slutted it up in the video cause that was in?
good times.

Lucky13 said...

@Angela

I've seen Zoe in other movies but I know her best from Avatar because that's the first film that I'd ever heard of her, so...

Mary said...

The anarchist mother isn’t Vanessa Redgrave is it?

Otto said...

Yeah, so nobody else but Edge spoke my mind but, isn't this awesome mother doing exactly what she should be, protecting her daughter & family from sadists the best way she can? I'd love to know their trustworthy agents/agency.
