I haven't seen Cider House in a while...I don't remember her. I should watch it again. maaaan cmon people!! Donna is hilarious!!! Sometimes I want to deck her, but most of the time she's great comic relief, plus every once in a while she's the unlikely voice of reason.

i totally agree - without donna the show would lack a lot fun, heart and soul. one of my favourite donna scenes were the one where she gave birth to ariadne. her preparations and how she made everyone nervous were cute and fun, while the actual scene with her mother treating her so badly and maxine getting into the tub with her were really touching and made me cry.

just saw that about "the cider house rules" - i wanted to rent this one for a long time now, seems like i actually have even more reasons to do so.

on "girl interrupted" - maybe i can make some screencaps. it's just that i can barely watch the picture without freaking - britney murphy's role in it is something i hardly can bear. [img]smilies/look.gif[/img]

I agree, I kind of thought she was a total ding-dong when I first watched Judging Amy, but I love her know. I love her passion and heart, her honesty and kindness.

She's the kind of person who'd you'd love to have as a friend, just cause she'd keep things interesting.

I like her moments with Vincent so much better than with Kyle, but now that I think about it any scene with her in it is a pleasure to watch.

I'm trying to remember Jillian in Girl Interupted... but I can't. I know I haven't seen her in anything else, so all my thoughts on her will be from Judging Amy.

i made some screencaps of Jillian in Girl Interrupted so you can remember. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] she actually had a lot of screentime for a supporting character.

I still can't remember her, well her character that is, but I remember seeing her... does that make sense. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Well it's a good thing the movie wasn't that bad that I wont watch it again.

Wasn't Tobey Maguire in Cider House Rules, cause yeah now I'll have two reasons to watch it.

jup, that makes sense. i must say that i can't remember what cynthia's (JA's character on GI) diagnosis was. i still can't bear watching the whole picture because of daisy. so when i made the screencaps i turned off the volume.

on "The Cider House Rules" - i think the movie was with Charlize Theron and Tobey Maguire. but as far as i got it Jillian did starr in a play based on the book, no? [img]smilies/look.gif[/img]

did anyone see her on The West Wing? i've never watched that show, but i'm tempted to rent the first season at our video rental place if you say it's worth it. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

If I remember correctly, I recently read somewhere that Jillian has a new baby. Anyone know anything about it?

No. I went to imdb, but there isn't any info. on it. I guess it's not updated yet since it doesn't indicate that she has any children. I guess they concealed her pregnancy on JA, or perhaps this is the reason we haven't seen much of the Donna character this season.
