Action-thriller and true life-coming-of-age story, The Runner, hit theaters last week. Directed by Michelle Danner, the drama-thriller looks at a troubled teen, played by newcomer Edouard Philipponnat, who is forced to go undercover to take down a drug kingpin. It also stars Cameron Douglas, Eric Balfour, and Elizabeth Röhm. Röhm, a director too, and Danner Zoomed into LifeMinute to tell us all about it and more, including their subsequent projects and insights into their exciting careers.
Danner has a prolific career as a filmmaker, performer, and legendary acting coach at the Los Angeles Acting Conservatory she founded.
Their careers started in very different ways. For Danner, acting was a part of the family business, while Röhm says she caught the acting bug starting as a history major. Since then, she has had roles in Law & Order and American Hustle. Both took on directing later in their careers.
Röhm recently directed a Lifetime movie, Girl in Room 13, starring the late Anne Heche, and Danner recently directed the film Miranda’s Victim, the true life story of the Miranda Rights with an ensemble cast, including Abigail Breslin, Luke Wilson, Andy Garcia, and Donald Sutherland.
This is a LifeMinute with Michelle Danner and Elisabeth Röhm.
