|Parker & Gracie
Parker Posey recently received an Independent Spirit Award nomination as Leading Actress for her work in Rebecca Miller’s Personal Velocity, as well as a Golden Globe nomination for her work opposite Shirley MacLaine in the CBS film Hell on Heels: The Battle of Mary Kay.
Of course, of all the films in Parker’s vast repertoire, my personal favorite is Best in Show in her role as the obsessed, over-the-top catalog-shopping, braces-wearing neurotic Weirmeraner owning Meg Swan.
Parker lives in New York with Gracie, a bright, precious, precocious white Bishon Balinese, who will be one year old on October 18, but it was here in New Orleans on the set of NBC Universal’s new movie, Frankenstein that I spied Parker with Gracie in tow. Gracie is quite mobile and travels practically everywhere Parker goes.
Frankenstein airs October 10 on the USA Network. Parker plays Detective Carson O’Conner, investigating a series of murders that are plaguing the New Orleans community.
We appreciate the time that Parker and Gracie took to answer the Inner Dog Questionnaire.
