Brooke loved reading the dishy celebrity gossip rag Last Night - until her marriage became a weekly headline, that is.
Brooke was drawn to the soulful, enigmatic Julian Alter the very first time she heard him perform "Hallelujah" at a dark East Village dive bar. Now five years married, Brooke balances two jobs-as a nutritionist at NYU Hospital and as a consultant to an Upper East Side girls' school, where privilege gone wrong and disordered eating run rampant-in order to help support her husband's dream of making it in the music world. Things are looking up when, after years of playing Manhattan clubs and toiling as an A&R intern, Julian finally gets signed by Sony. Although no one's promising that the album will ever hit the airwaves, Julian is still dedicated to logging in long hours at the recording studio. All that changes after Julian is asked to perform on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno-and is catapulted to stardom, literally overnight.
Amazing opportunities begin popping up almost daily-a new designer wardrobe, a tour with Maroon 5, even a Grammy performance. At first, the newfound fame is fun-who wouldn't want to stay at the Chateau Marmont or visit the set of one of television's hottest shows? Yet it seems that Brooke's sweet husband-the man who can't handle hot showers and wears socks to bed-is increasingly absent, even on those rare nights they're home together. When rumors about Brooke and Julian swirl in the tabloid magazines, she begins to question the truth of her marriage and is forced to finally come to terms with what she thinks she wants-and what she actually needs.
LOS ANGELES | Saying goodbye to a series that has occupied a fifth of her life is difficult, Merritt Wever says. “You’re incredibly grateful that you got to play somebody so fun and you got to work with the best of the best. Now in its seventh and final season, “Nurse Jackie” brought Wever an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress, a large following and a stellar credit that can be used to land that next big job. Even better, she says, “the writers knew it was the last season going in, so they got to have the best final season they could. I know there’s a lot of sentimentality involved in something like this, but they’re only things to be grateful for. In the hit Showtime series, Wever plays the upbeat nurse Zoey Barkow, who’s a natural foil for Edie Falco’s world-weary Jackie. Racing through the halls of All Saints’ Hospital, she’s also able to engage in plenty of physical humor – “the physically absurd,” she says. “They give me little nuggets of fun every so often. That range brought the Emmy (she had one of the shortest speeches in the award’s history: “Thanks so much. “I didn’t think there was a chance in hell that I’d win,” Wever says. “Nothing was going to come out of my mouth, so I figured there was nothing to do but leave. “I totally get it if you want to put it on display but I’m not that kind of girl,” she says. “I’m the kind of person who, every now and then, will remember, ‘Oh, yeah, that happened. The name badge she has worn since she started “Nurse Jackie. ” Wever says she wanted to keep it because “the picture was taken my very first day on the pilot. While the 35-year-old graduate of Sarah Lawrence College did a play after the last episode of “Nurse Jackie” was shot, it’s likely she’ll continue in film. Last year, for example, she had a featured role in “Birdman,” the Best Picture of 2014. Because director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu wanted it to look like the film was done in one continuous shot, she and others had to make sure their scenes... “It was pretty amazing,” Wever says. “It was incredible to witness. We’d get there, rehearse and literally wait hours and hours for them to run it through. I’m sure I’ll never be able to witness anything like that again. Cast as the stage manager of the play within the film, she frequently stood on the sidelines while the action spilled out in front of her. “I got to observe, which was kind of a lot more fun. I didn’t have to feel the pressure but there’s always that feeling – ‘am I going to screw up. ’ I didn’t have to do any heavy. Source: siouxcityjournal.com
