Minnie Driver Reveals Her Favorite Film and TV Roles

Minnie Driver’s favorite film role is also one of her most famous.

In an interview for Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series, the actress sat down for an interview with Christine Baranski, who asked her to call out a memorable performance.

“My favorite film that I was in was  ‘Grosse Pointe Blank,'” she said. “That was largely improvised and brilliant and wonderfully constructed and different.”

She also turned to short-lived FX show “The Riches,” calling her character Dahlia Malloy “pretty much my favorite character. ”

“I’m very interested in identity and I’m very interested in the subterfuge of women, because we consciously do it,” she went on. “We have to do it, a lot of the time. And then here is a character, she was a drug addict gypsy who takes over the life of a white middle-class American mother, and it was really interesting and different and great and challenging, and I loved it.”

The interview will air in its entirety on Variety’s “Actors on Actors” Season 6, presented by Shutterstock, which premieres June 13 on PBS SoCal.
