So many inspiring podcasts out there allow us to hear all about how well-established stars got to where they are today. But those actors are so faaaaaaar away from where so many of us are today! Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in the hills?
We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh. If you like it please rate us or leave a review on Itunes!
In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds. (They also dish out some crazy stories!) Listen in and enjoy as these entertainers speak candidly about their paths, processes, and experiences. You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.
In this installation of "Kahnversations," Ryan interviews Crista Flanagan. Crista was born and raised in Mt. Vernon, Illinois, and earned a Bachelor of Science from The University of Evansville and a Master of Fine Arts from The University of California, Irvine.
Crista made her major television debut when she starred on FOX’s late night sketch show MAD TV as a series regular for five seasons. Crista then joined the cast of MAD MEN for their first three seasons as tractor-riding secretary, Lois Sadler.
Other notable television credits include HELLO LADIES, MOM, MARRY ME, TROPHY WIFE, 2 BROKE GIRLS, LAST MAN STANDING, and COUGAR TOWN. Crista is currently recurring on TBS’ new comedy, CLIPPED.
