Emerson alums and official big deals Daniel Kwan ’10, Daniel Scheinert ’09, and Jennifer Coolidge ’85 teamed up for the cover shot and photo spread in W Magazine‘s Directors Issue.
The annual Directors Issue, now in its fifth year, highlights some of a given year’s most exciting directors, including multiple Oscar nominees.
Directors Kwan and Scheinert have been raking in awards and nominations for their genre-bending hit film Everything Everywhere All at Once, currently the frontrunner for a number of Oscars. Coolidge has won an Emmy, a Golden Globe, a Critic’s Choice, and a SAG award for her portrayal of Tanya on HBO’s The White Lotus, and has been starring in series and films almost nonstop for the past few years.
“For their latest romp, the directors said there was no question that Coolidge had to be the A-list star of this B-movie shoot, though they had never worked with the actor and their only in-person interaction with her was a brief hello at the Critics Choice Awards in January. ‘But of all the people who are having a moment right now, she felt like someone exciting to put on the cover of a magazine,’ Kwan said.”
