Christmas Day was extra special for actress Brighid Fleming, whose movie Labor Day opened on the holiday. Brighid stars in the drama alongside Josh Brolin, Kate Winslet, and Tobey Maguire, playing the rebellious Eleanor. BFTV spoke with the young actress before the holidays to get the scoop on the movie, and get to know her a little better.
What made her sign on for Labor Day, which is based on the Joyce Maynard novel? "First of all, it has a great director. I loved the idea of working with Jason Reitman, and he was great to work with," she explained. "I loved the script. And it's a very strong girl part for someone my age - you don't have a lot of strong, sassy females in teenage girl roles."
At just 14 years old, Brighid has already gained accolades, including a 2013 Ovation Award for Featured Actress In A Play for her role in The Nether, and a Young Artist Award nomination for a guest appearance on CBS's Criminal Minds. So what stood out for her about working on Labor Day?
