Rachel Brosnahan has won countless awards in her 11-year-long professional acting career, but she was not always so confident in her abilities.
Brosnahan reflected on her early career while accepting the IMDbPro STARmeter Award at Sundance Film Festival on Friday.
“My first credit on IMDb is playing Lisa in ‘The Unborn’,” Brosnahan shared. “All I remember about playing that part is that my mom had to be with me on set.”
“I was 17-years-old and I was just so nervous and awkward and didn’t know where to go and pretty sure I was actively ending my career,” she continued. “So I’m thankful to still have one.”
Brosnahan was presented with the awarded the IMDbPro STARmeter based on the search behaviour of more than 200 million unique monthly IMDB visitors worldwide.
“I’ve been told that in order to get this I have to be enduringly popular on IMDb. I’ve never been enduringly popular before,” she said. “This is pretty cool. I grew up searching many, many people and movies on IMDb so thank you so very much.”
