This week, we’re throwing it back to one of our most popular releases: My So-Called Life, the series by Winnie Holzman, Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz. It starred Claire Danes in her breakout role as Angela Chase, the 15-year old who was head-over-heels in love with the high school’s relatively bad boy, Jordan Catalano, played by Jared Leto. The show was a cult hit, but mostly after it had already been cancelled by ABC and was in reruns on MTV. In this episode of Shout!Takes, we learn about Claire's history with acting; that she was even younger than her 15-year-old character; and all about those make-out scenes with Jared Leto! Listen below, on iTunes, Spotify, or your favorite podcast provider.
