Getting To Know Willa Fitzgerald
Willa Fitzgerald is an American actress who's known for her timeless roles in productions such as her portrayal of Emma Duval in the MTV production Scream. Her other characters included appearances on USA Network's Royal Pains as the outcasted Emma Miller, someone who feels on the edge of society due to her stigmatized status as the illegitimate child out of wedlock to the notorious Eddie and Meredith, both of whom shared two sons, her brothers, within the marriage. This and other roles were what helped to shape and define her already budding career as an actress, and paved the way for future roles down the line.
Fitzgerald enjoyed other roles such as the one she played in Couple in the Kitchen and The Private Sector, along with other roles, including a last-minute appearance on Misfortune. Her appearance as Lacey in Blue Bloods was one of the roles that helped put her on the map and made her known among her peers.
Her most recent appearance in the TV series Law and Order had her playing the uncompromising Ava Parcell, which is where she may have gotten her biggest break on the screen to date. The ability to act alongside such fine names as Marisa Hargitay and the pop sensation Ice-T was something that gave her the career boost she needed to get ahead.
The Hidden Facts
There are other hidden facts about Willa Fitzgerald that may surprise you, among them being that she is a Yale graduate with a degree in theater studies, having once been interested in the pursuit of psychology as her first career goal.
There are a few other facts regarding the life of Willa Fitzgerald that are not so well-known, such as the fact that she chose her education not just to be an actor but to explore every aspect of the theater. In fact, her studies extended to include learning the ins and out of the directing process, as well as play and screenwriting. Her creativity certainly seemed to have no limits.
An Entrepreneurial Side
Willa Fitzgerald appears to have a bit of an entrepreneurial streak due to her recent brush with the burgeoning CBD oil industry. Her boyfriend, Gabe Kennedy, has a business of his own where he markets and sells the product as a natural sleep aid, which is something she had tried. It apparently had worked, and the benefits seem to have paid off. In fact, part of her evening winding down routine consists of CBD oils and melatonin supplements, both of which ease the anxiety of a demanding schedule and workload.
Brought Up Organically
As a child, Willa was brought up by parents who had firm beliefs in DIY measures, especially as it came to growing organic food. In fact, she jokingly refers to them as "hippies" who made their own homemade yogurt and consumed organic meats. They even endowed her with the Moosewood Cookbook as a going-away gift for college to help her avoid the types of comfort eating that plague most of the student population.
But her most organic move involved several stints in the local children's theater as a puppeteer, where she got her earliest experience in acting. There, she did acts using both shadow and sock puppets while traveling in a children's theater group across the country to give live, outdoor performances.
