|Kirsten Smith, “Legally Blonde” screenwriter:|
"Today is the beginning of your Act Two.
Act One is the “set-up.” It is childhood, high school and of course, college, where the heroine’s personality is established.
Act Two is where the plucky heroine has a goal and sets out to achieve it. But brace yourself, because it’s a rollercoaster: you’re up, you’re down, until that moment in Act Three when you take a stand, fill the screen and tell us what you truly believe in. This thing you believe in is so passionate and true that all of us, your best friends and your family, we can’t help but root for you.
How can we send you off into a world that is so wildly erratic and unpredictable? How can we bank on your box-office draw? All I can give you is what I know: Don’t say it; show it. Character equals action."
