Cole: How important was it for you to show Brenda’s feminine side while still embracing motherhood in the film?

Paquin: It was incredibly important. I had many long conversations with Brenda about that period of time in her life. It was very well written in the script and being able to hear from Brenda about things that weren’t in the script helped improve my performance and it was a luxury. They broke the mold when they made Brenda. She’s not going to be put into anyone’s box and she’s a survivor.

Put on your cleats and head to theaters to see “American Underdog” on Christmas day.
