Several years ago, I remember Vanity Fair or a similar magazine did a feature on 'future moviestars' or some such, and Gretchen Mol was one of the dozen or so featured. It was the first I had heard of her. For whatever reason, that mention of her stuck with me (couldn't begin to tell you who else they predicted fame and Oscar-worthy fortune for in that same feature). But she quickly seemed to drop off the radar.
I would always think of that article whenever her name would come up, which was very seldom before the LoM series came along. There's no point to this post of mine. just thought I'd mention. *shrugs*
