Dianna Agron: You Do A Few Takes for Yourself

Posted: Updated:

So how did Dianna Agron go from playing cheerleader Quinn on FOX TV's "Glee" to the daughter of Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer in the feature film, "The Family"?

"Right place, right time; got the script; met Luc (Besson, the writer and director) in Paris, and it all worked out, luckily," Dianna tells Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A, adding that it was a "dream job."

But it wasn't until she was actually cast that she found out she'd be co-starring with De Niro and Pfeiffer.  "I knew it was a possibility; it wasn't locked down."

For Agron, the pressure of working with two acting giants was lessened by Besson, who made her feel very comfortable.  And then there was the location.  The movie was shot in Normandy, France.  "It's beautiful; everybody's having the best time and you feel like you're on vacation."

Fun Facts About Dianna Agron:

  • She began her acting career by playing minor characters on TV series and films, such as Close to Home, When a Stranger Calls, The Romantics, Drake & Josh. Her most notable role to date is Quinn Fabray on the Fox musical comedy-drama series Glee.
  • Agron has won many awards and nominations thanks to this role. She also appeared in several episodes of Veronica Mars and Heroes.
  • She branched out into writing and directing with the result being the short film A Fuchsia Elephant, the story about an 18-year-old girl played by Agron who creates an ideal birthday party. She also played roles in films such as The Hunters, I Am Number Four and Glee: The 3D Concert Movie.
