The Texan Who Wants to Go Into Fashion

Isaiah Kirkland, Unemployed

So what are you doing with yourself?
Right now, I’m just trying to model and build up my résumé. I want to get into fashion. I’ve met with a few people, but it hasn’t really gone as planned. I’ve been working a little bit for my uncle in his gallery. I could get a job in the food industry, but if I had wanted to work at McDonald’s, I would have just stayed in Houston, where I’m from.

Comic-Con: Lucy Lawless Went to the Deathbed of a Fan Once, Which, Yep, That Seems Right

At Saturday's Women Who Kick Ass panel, a group of veritable ass-kickers — including Connie Nielsen, Ming-Na Wen, Morena Baccarin, Melissa Benoist, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Tatiana Maslany — discussed many of the challenges facing female actors today. Nielsen talked the lack of meaty roles for women who are neither young nor old, the traditional territories of the Best Actress Oscar; Baccarin expressed her desire to play both James Bond and a Bond girl; Maslany praised the influence of Jill Soloway and Lena Dunham on television; and Wen, like a true vet, broke down the finer points of fighting in heels versus lingerie.

Even these aspirational figures seemed to be inspired by another presence in the room, though. When asked what dream role she'd love to play, Wen looked down the length of the table and said, "I want to be Lucy Lawless."
