Janina Gavankar Answers Lesbian Life Questions::
Is there anything fun/or funny that happened on the set of The L Word that you want to share?
I will always remember salsa dancing with Pam Grier. I got to lead a legend!
How are you like or unlike your character on The L Word?
Really I'm nothing like Papi... She's got serious game (I'm kinda nerdy), she's from East LA, (I'm from Chicago), she's masculine (I'm... not.) We're just from entirely different walks of life.
When you got the job, did you know what a cultural phenomenon The L Word is for lesbians?
I definitely knew the show was a hit, across the board, but I didn't have a full grasp on its importance. I realize that now!
Does you think the show helps the cause of gay/lesbian rights? If so, how?
I absolutely think the show helps the LGBT cause, the obvious immediate reason being awareness. But I also think that the more shows like this that are produced and available to wide audiences, the more the next generation of LGBT can grow up seeing that they do have a voice, and are supported.
Anything else you'd want to say to a mostly lesbian audience?
As a fan of the show, I can say this is the best season yet! I hope you all feel the love we've put into it...
