She started her acting career in the theatre and eventually transitioned to film. In 1996, I had an opportunity to interview her when she was talking to the press about her role in Greg Mottola’s The Daytrippers. During the interview, we talked about prepping for the role, breaking her ankle during filming, and working as a waitress.

Listen to the interview.

She was charming and fun, and I was smitten.  Since The Daytrippers, Davis has not stopped working, appearing in numerous movies and television shows. Most recently, she was featured in Your Honor with Bryan Cranston and on the HOB series Perry Mason. Coming in 2022, Hope Davis will be featured with an all-star cast in Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City.

The Daytrippers is currently streaming on HBOmax.

Until next time, this is Mark Gordon and I’ll see you Center Stage.
