For Kaitlyn Dever, starring as the titular heroine in Disney+'s "Rosaline" was a dream come true. She tells POPSUGAR that she first heard about the project — which reimagines "Romeo and Juliet" from the perspective of Romeo's first love and Juliet's cousin, Rosaline — years ago when she was 15. The actor, now 25, says that even when she read the script back then, "it was always something that was super special," adding, "I think society needs time to catch up with certain projects." The movie stayed in her head as an idea, and when screenwriter Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber called her up to ask if she wanted the lead part for real, she was thrilled.
During the film's production, she met two of her idols: Minnie Driver and Bradley Whitford, whom she calls "icons and literal legends." Dever admits she is a huge fan of the film "Ella Enchanted," which made her starstruck when she first met Driver. "This was my moment with her," she explains "It was like I couldn't even believe that she is playing the nurse in this movie. I really can't believe it. Working with her was just such a joy." She calls Driver "such a pro" and explains that she learned a lot from watching her on set.
