Lacey Chabert Talks ‘Elevator Girl’

It would be really easy for Lacey Chabert to walk around with the kind of arrogant attitude that too often comes with having the kind of great early success she’s enjoyed in Hollywood. Before she’d even entered middle school, Chabert was co-starring as young Claudia Salinger in the hit series “Party of Five,” after having landed a regular role on the soap opera “All My Children” the year before – when she was all of 10.

The consensus was that the Purvis, Mississippi-born onetime beauty contest winner was one of the finest young actresses of her generation. She had the world by the tail. But Chabert knew that her breakout success came with a seeming expiration date.

“I knew it could all change after I grew up, which was something I really couldn’t avoid,” Chabert, who turned 27 on September 30, recalls. “When you transition from being a child actor to an adult actor, it’s rife with a lot of challenges. Most of it stems from trying to convince people you can still act. It’s like reintroducing yourself.”

That Chabert has made the leap to more adult roles with a rare smoothness is underscored by the fact she’s no longer typecast as either the “Party of Five” kid or the catty teen from the seminal 2004 flick, “Mean Girls.”

Case in point: The new Hallmark Channel Original Movie “Elevator Girl,” which premieres Saturday, February 13 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). It finds Chabert playing the free-spirited, artsy spark plug to Ryan Merriman’s driven workaholic lawyer. In the romantic comedy, she’s one of the servers at a party honoring Merriman’s character, and unlikely sparks fly when they get trapped together in an elevator during the event.

“Oh my God, I had so much fun making this movie!” Chabert gushes. “First off, Ryan is just a total sweetheart. He’s so sweet and funny and humble and good at what he does. He’s just a breath of fresh air in a business where sometimes I find that the guy takes longer in hair and makeup than I do.”

It turns out that when Chabert hung out in a trailer during the “Elevator Girl” shoot, it was to babysit her three Chihuahuas named Teacup, Teaspoon and, uh, Kitty (“Because when she was a puppy, everyone thought she was a kitten,” she adds). It turns out her dog walker took ill during the shoot.

“They’re my kids,” Chabert offers. “I swear I’m not one of these actresses who takes their dogs everywhere!”

The only anxious moment that Chabert says she had while making “Elevator Girl” came, bizarrely, during the first day of shooting. As she describes it, she was walking by a pool during what was “a sweet scene,” and all she would think was “Don’t trip, don’t trip.”

“So of course, during the last take, I’m walking along and the next thing I know my face is planted on the ground,” she remembers. “Not only did I slip, but I flew through the air and then slid like 20 feet. Everyone was just like deadly silent. I stayed down for a full minute because I was so mortified. I bruised my knee up pretty bad. But I have to say, it really broke the ice on the set in a cool way.”

Fortunately, Chabert’s career took no similar dives following her early splash. She notes, “I had to go through everything on that show – my first kiss, my first bra, everything.” But she was able to land plum voice roles on “Family Guy” (she played Meg Griffin in the show’s first incarnation) and on the toon series “The Wild Thornberrys” in the late ‘90s.

Then the exposure in “Mean Girls” helped to serve as a bridge between juvenile and grown-up for Chabert, as did a much-acclaimed star turn in the 2004 made-for-TV movie “The Brooke Ellison Story.”

It had all started for her back in the early 1990s when Chabert was a finalist on “Star Search,” followed by a two-year run on Broadway as the young Cossette in a production of “Les Miserables.”

Lacey’s life

Lacey Chabert celebrates Valentine’s Day in an elevator. Chabert’s character in Elevator Girl, airing on the Hallmark Channel February 13 at 8 pm, finds her true love in the titular transportation device. The Mean Girls and Party of Five phoned SheKnows Entertainment to discuss her latest film, but also to add insight into how the actress managed to avoid the perils of child stardom to emerge a successful, scandal-free adult actress.

Lacey Chabert stars in the Hallmark orginal movie Elevator GirlIn the original Hallmark movie Elevator Girl, Chabert’s character becomes stuck in an elevator with Ryan Merriman’s career-driven lawyer.

Chabert eventually escapes the elevator prison only to discover she’s working an event honoring Merriman as a server. Sparks fly, romantic and otherwise. Expect anything less from the child star that mastered the melodramatic mastery of Party of Five and Mean Girls? Hardly!

Going up, Lacey Chabert?

Lacey Chabert: Hi Joel, this is Lacey Chabert.

SheKnows: Hey! How are you?

Lacey Chabert: I’m good, how are you doing?

SheKnows: I’m doing fantastic. How am I finding you on this fine day?

Lacey Chabert: I’m trying to clean up my place a little bit and I’m getting ready to go on an audition — all that exciting stuff (laughs).

SheKnows: That does sound exciting. Do you still get nerves before auditions?

Lacey Chabert: You know what’s funny? I really do. It’s kind of an exciting nervous. It’s not a panicking nervous. I put my heart and soul in to all of these auditions. My goal is leaving the room knowing I did exactly what I wanted to do. There’s nothing worse than getting in you car and going, “That’s what I wanted to do.” Sometimes, I just want to tell them, could you watch me in my car. I’m really good in my car!

We both laugh.

SheKnows: Exactly. I’m sure singers feel that way on auditions like many of those American Idol contestants. “Could you just listen to me in the shower?”

Lacey Chabert: (Laughing) You know, I love what I do so I get excited about every job like it’s the first one. But, you are putting yourself out there and it’s a very vulnerable thing. They’re either going to love it or hate it. At the end of the day, you have to just let it go.

SheKnows: …and just be true to yourself.

Lacey Chabert: That’s right! Be true to yourself and go with your instincts and if it’s not you’re thing, there’s not much you can do about it.

SheKnows: Well, you’re instincts have done you well thus far.

Lacey Chabert: Ah, thank you.

Lacey Chabert Talks Relationships, “Mean Girls,” And New Hallmark Channel Movie “Elevator Girl”
Posted by: Jennifer Posted on: Feb 11th | Comments:Comments Off
Posted in: Interviews

Lacey Chabert grew up in front of television cameras, most notably as Claudia Salinger on “Party of Five.” With a career of films, like the now cult-classic “Mean Girls,” television movies, and even voiceover work (she was the original Meg Griffin on “Family Guy” before Mila Kunis stepped in), Chabert can now be seen all grown up in the upcoming Hallmark Channel movie, “Elevator Girl.”

Just in time for Valentine’s, “Elevator Girl” tells the story of a free-spirited waitress, played by Chabert, who has a chance meeting with a young hotshot lawyer (Ryan Merriman) when they both find themselves stuck in an elevator. Sparks fly between the two but their differences soon become very apparent. But Chabert says she was attracted to the new romantic comedy which is all about how opposites attract.

CNS: What was it like working on your first Hallmark Channel movie, “Elevator Girl”?

LC: I was just really attracted to the story and the characters. Working with Ryan Merriman was really fun, and I think we have a lot in common since we both grew up in this business. I was excited to work with the director, Bradford May. He brought a lot of energy to the set and was really open to us making the characters our own. I thought the story was really relatable and something people would enjoy watching.

CNS: I got to watch some of “Elevator Girl” and it seemed like your most mature role yet. Did you think so too?

LC: Definitely. It was definitely a more grown-up character, but at the same time she’s also kind-of childlike in the way that she has little focus in life and doesn’t know what drives her other than just enjoying the moment. But then she meets Jonathan, who is overly driven, a lawyer, just the opposite of her. But they learn from each other and they meet each other in the middle.

CNS: Is that something you can relate to? Unlike your pal Jennifer Love Hewitt, who I can probably run down who she’s dated in the past five years, I can’t think of any of your relationships. Do you usually date outside the business?

LC: I’ve always kept that part of my life private because dating and relationships are hard enough without the judgment of the world. But I’ve never actually dated anyone famous. I’m not saying I would never date an actor because you can’t help who you fall in love with. But I’m in a relationship now and he’s really understanding because the life that I lead isn’t always the most convenient when jobs come up the way they do. It takes a very special person to be that patient and understanding.

CNS: “Mean Girls” is probably still one of the most quoted comedies amongst young people. Have you been able to see the impact that it’s had?

LC: When I got that part, I was so excited to work with Tina Fey and Mark Waters and I knew it would be great but I never had any idea that it would catch on as much as it did. People stop me at least a few times a week to quote lines from the movie or talk about it and it makes me so happy that people enjoyed it so much and find it so funny.

CNS: Your “Mean Girls” co-star, Jonathan Bennett, also appears with you in “Elevator Girl.” What was that like?

LC: We just did another film together too, “Slightly Single in L.A.,” and we’re talking about doing another project together. We’ve become really good friends. He’s like a brother to me. “Elevator Girl” was such a surprise that we got to work together again. I love him. He’s so funny and such a good friend.

CNS: That must be like finding out a friend has the same class as you on the first day of school.

LC: Yes! That’s exactly what it’s like (laughing). It’s so comforting.

CNS: Tell me about “Slightly Single in L.A.” It sounds like another great role.

LC: We just finished shooting that before Christmas. That was a fun role for me. I felt like that character was like the closest character that I’ve played to myself. The movie, from writer/director Christie Will who is so talented, is all about dating in L.A. and being in the business. It was a really fun role for me. I had a lot of fun filming it.

CNS: Did you not think when Taylor Swift won Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards that she should have broken off a piece for Lady Gaga and a piece for Beyonce?

LC: No! That was her moment. She definitely deserved it.

CNS: What about a piece for Gretchen Wieners?

LC: (Laughing) Oh! Definitely. Yes. She would love that piece of plastic.

“Elevator Girl” starring Lacey Chabert premieres Saturday, February 13th at 9pm/8pm Central on Hallmark Channel.

Lacey Chabert: From ‘Mean Girl’ to ‘Elevator Girl’

It had all started for her back in the early 1990s when Chabert was a finalist on “Star Search,” followed by a two-year run on Broadway as the young Cossette in a production of “Les Miserables.”

“The bar was set for me pretty high from the beginning,” she believes. “I mean, I’m in this amazing Broadway show, then a Golden Globe-winning drama. I was very blessed. I’m so thankful for all of those different experiences.

“But it was also really weird, so backward compared to most of my peers in the industry who were coming out of college trying to get their first job. Instead, I was encountering typecasting issues and trying to convince people I could be whatever character they wanted me to be. For a while, all I was offered were ‘Mean Girls’-type parts.”

Now that she’s continuing to move past the career hurdle that was growing up, the gracious and polite Chabert is able to keep more of an eye on the future. She’s taking to optioning books and other properties to star in and produce herself.

“I’m not sure of the path I’ll be going on from here,” Chabert admits, “but my goal is to take more control of what’s ahead for me now that I’m an adult. I really want to be more collaborative and creative in making my own opportunities.”

And what of her personal life? Chabert respectfully offers that she’s dedicated to keeping her private life private, which is why you don’t see much written about her in the tabloids.

When pressed, Chabert will acknowledge there is a special man in her life. But that’s as much as she will divulge. However, when she’s talking about the “Elevator Girl” storyline, the romantic inside her pops through.

“The script was really cute and fresh,” she says, “and its whole idea of finding a magical connection with someone and having to pursue it really resonated with me. These people live in different worlds and have different lives, but they can’t ignore what they’re feeling.

“I think the lesson is never to judge a book by its cover. And I’m a big believer.”
