Hey M Girls!
Tonight may be the mid-season finale of ABC Family's Jane By Design, but have no fear -- the show was picked up for at least eight more episodes to air this summer! We recently caught up with Jane herself, Ms. Erica Dasher, at a fun fashion event at Bloomingdales in NYC. She dished to us all about what it's like to be on the show. Check it out here:
M: Hey, Erica! What has been your favorite scene to film so far in the series?
Erica: Honestly, Paris was pretty incredible. We got to go for a couple of days and we wrapped the season in front of the Eiffel Tower. They said, "Season wrap!" and it was eight o'clock, and the Eiffel Tower lit up. I definitely got a little misty eyed. It was pretty great. Also, anything where there are a lot of cast members together. In episode ten, the final episode, there is a lot happening and we all get to be in the same room. We really feed off each other's energy. It's really fun.
M: So, you get along really well with the whole cast?
Erica: I do! I'm very fortunate! Everyone really cares about the material and we all really care about each other. We want the show to be great and so, it's a blessing.
M: Sounds amazing! Obviously, the show is all about fashion! Has there ever been an outfit that you've wanted to keep?
Erica: I want to keep all of the clothes! It's so disappointing to come home to my own closet. I think my favorite outfit is -- I wear this pair of tweed trousers, by Rachel Roy, in episode nine. At first, when I saw them I wasn't sure, but then I put them on and instantly fell in love. They make me feel like Annie Hall!
M: Do you ever get to keep anything?
Erica: No! I have to give it all back, but they let me borrow stuff, which is pretty cool.
M: How would you say your style is similar to Jane's?
Erica: Well, Jane's style is definitely bold. She's not afraid to take risks, but there's an underlying current of femininity to her stuff and I think I have a lot of very feminine pieces in my wardrobe. I wear a lot of vintage. I love that 1950's silhouette with the cinched waist, and I like the flowy skirts.
M: So, Jane obviously has this double life. If you had a double life, and weren't an actress, what would your secret side career be?
Erica: I'm really fascinated by people. I feel like if I wasn't acting or involved in the arts--I would become a psychiatrist. I can see that as a path for myself.
Thanks for chatting, Erica! You can catch the mid-season finale of Jane By Design on ABC Family, tonight at 8pm!
