Danielle Panabaker is nothing like her character Katie Lapp — at least at first.
The 23-year-old actress stars as Katie in the upcoming Hallmark Channel movie, The Shunning, and dished in a recent interview the reason she was drawn to the film.
Danielle shared, “I really related to the journey of this young woman sort of struggling to find herself and find her own voice. I think that’s something that a lot of young women — young people — can relate to, you know, being in your late teens or early twenties and trying to figure out who you want to be in this world. When I read the script I was drawn into it immediately.”
“It was really an emotional performance. I really wanted to make sure we hit all the moments this young woman was struggling with, as authentically and honestly as possible. And it was certainly difficult on such a limited time budget. We shot the whole thing in, like, three weeks, which is pretty incredible,” Danielle added.
