If I had to pick one word to describe actress Andrea Frankle, besides the obvious choice of talented, I would have to choose delightful. Several times during our conversation, I had to remind myself that it was in fact an interview (funny enough, Frankle recalls a similar experience of having to remind herself she was supposed to be acting while performing with Saoirse Ronan in our interview) and not just a chat with one of the most friendly people I’ve met in a long time. Frankle can easily go from discussing working with the likes of Ronan, McConaughey, and Harrelson, to giving home remedy allergy advice, and back again without missing a beat, all the while oozing charm and wit.

Frankle is also one busy actress. With roles in two of the year’s hottest book to movie adaptations and even more films headed to theaters this year (not to mention her tv roles), you’re likely to see at least one of her many projects this year and I would not be surprised if it leaves you wanting to see more of her work.
