TIFF 2015 ELLE Canada studio portrait: Jeannine Kaspar

Jeannine Kaspar is a TIFF first-timer and she’s impressed with how friendly everyone is. The New York-based actress stars in the movie, Freeheld alongside Julianne Moore and Ellen Page. The actress, who is a natural brunette, is still getting used to her blond hair. “I did this for a part I’m playing in SuperMoto,” she explains. “My character discovers her boyfriend has left her and she’s pregnant. She decides she’s going to cut and dye her hair as a way of saying “no more!” The director and I decided that if I was going to take this journey with the character I needed to do it all the way and not wear a wig. After I cut it, I would like to say it was my character crying on film, but it’s probably a little bit of both. My hair hasn’t been this short since I was three years old.” READ MORE: The 10 movies we can’t wait to see this fall
