Episode notes

Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti on ABBOTT ELEMENTARY

courtesy of ABC

From her roles in a semi-autobiographical sitcom in 1996 (Life’s Work) to The Parent Trap to Abbott Elementary, Lisa Ann Walter has played a lot of different kinds of strong, brassy women. And even though standards of beauty and acceptance in Hollywood are always changing, those winds haven’t always blown in her favor. But what makes an icon iconic is her unwavering commitment to being her own unmistakable self.

After talking with Lisa, Jordan has one quick thing about Fast X (and especially Jason Momoa).

About the show

On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
