Friel Stars Alongside Baby Daughter
ANNA FRIEL's baby daughter GRACIE will make her acting debut at the age of just 16 months, starring alongside the actress in her next movie. Friel Sr only landed the role of 16th century murderess ELIZABETH BATHORY in BATHORY after begging Slovakian director JURAJ JAKUBISKO to ditch FAMKE JANSSEN and give her the part of the Hungarian countess, who killed more than 600 women and drank their blood. Friel says, "Gracie plays my daughter. I'd heard they'd cast FAMKE JANSSEN but I read the script and fell in love with it. I've never written a letter to a director in my life but it made him change his mind and give me the part."
