Best Local Actress Receiving National Attention - 2011
On November 4, Lucy Roucis, whose fine work we've seen in Phamaly productions for many years, attended the Los Angeles premiere of Love and Other Drugs, starring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal. Roucis has a feature role in the film, as a jokester who cheers up Hathaway's character, newly diagnosed with Parkinson's. And anyone who saw the comic routine that Roucis perfected a few years back on the pros and cons of her own Parkinson's knew that she'd be perfect in the role. Pro: Having so much movement from medication and burning calories, you can eat anything you want. Con: Except soup.
