Kathie Lee & Hoda: Julia Stiles Blue Review
Julia Stiles may be best known for her dance scene in Save the Last Dance, a scene that catapulted her into the limelight, but now she may start to get recognized for her work on the YouTube web series, Blue. Stiles plays a mother who is an accountant by day and a call girl by night in the web series. Although this type of life has worked out for her character for years, Stiles said her character’s son is getting older and starting to wonder what his mother is doing at night.
Hoda, Stiles and Lisa Rinna watched a clip from the show where Stiles is in a meeting with her son’s principal and one of her clients is also in the room. Stiles said it was a very uncomfortable scene because the audience was still not sure whether she was going to rat on the man or whether she was going to let it go like she never saw him at the school.
“She blackmails him later on,” Stiles said, giving out a spoiler for the show.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Blue New Web Series
Stiles told Hoda and Lisa Rinna she wanted to do the show after she read the first scene of the script, even though she admitted she was a bit skeptical about doing a web series. She said the script has a lot of promise and a lot of room for more drama in the plot. She also said the lies continue to get more and more overwhelming which is part of the reason she thinks so many people are watching the show.
She said in second season of the show, she told the director there needs to be more scenes where people are mean to her character. She said she wants to make it less comic than the first season because she wants it to seem more real.
