(Marie Claire - January 1996)
Since the demise last year of her short-lived TV series My So-Called Life, Claire Danes has hit the big screen big time. She has been a standout ensemble player in the recent How to Make an American Quilt and the current Home for the Holidays; she is now filming To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday with Michelle Pfeiffer and Peter Gallagher -- she plays the neglected daughter of a grieving widower. Next, she'll costar in Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo DiCaprio. Will there be on-screen chemistry? "It's Romeo and Juliet," says the going-on-17 native New Yorker. "There had better be sparks!"
