Ep 98. Freida Pinto

Remember Slumdog Millionaire? “It’s about an underdog who has a dream and goes gunning for it, refusing to stop. You struggle and fall on your face and you pick yourself up and get what you want.” Freida Pinto was describing her first film, and perhaps unwittingly, foreshadowing her own career. In the eight short years since, she managed to work with some of the best (and most baffling) directors in the business. But she didn’t always manage to get them to see beyond her looks. If finding substantive roles worth her time and talent requires some fight, okay then. “Even at 15 or 16, I could see myself being a superhero. I never saw myself as the sidekick or someone who didn’t have a voice.” She’s found one in Showtime’s Guerrilla, in which she is quite literally, a revolutionary. It’s a radical departure from what most folks thought she could do, except Pinto herself. Surrender, Hollywood.
