ON THE VERGE: Clea Duvall
KNOWN AS: The alternative lifestyle Molly Ringwald with bigtime potential for career longevity.
• The Invisible Girl on TV’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer
• Charlie Korsmo’s groupie in Can’t Hardly Wait.
• Goth chick and sci-fi freak, Stokely in The Faculty.
• Clea played Misty (the bitter arty girl who was jealous of Rachel Leigh Cook’s talent) for us in She’s All That.
• Winona Ryder’s liar-liar-pants-on-fire roomie, Georgina in Girl, Interrupted.
• Natasha Lyonne’s first homosexual encounter in But I’m A Cheerleader
• The Heather Graham/Luke Wilson film, Committed as well as See Jane Run loom in the near future for Clea.
• Beyond that, Clea is likely to eschew her teen flick history to be the next “Indie Queen” a la Claire Danes. She has already skirted the edges of studio films with roles in The Astronaut’s Wife, The Faculty and Girl, Interrupted, so her transition from Indie-ana to Hollywood should be a fairly easy one.
