Jane By Design – Interview with Andie MacDowell

Posted on January 12th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

We are still awaiting the result of the Jane By Design Style Challenge. In the meantime, we’ve been enjoying the show Jane By Design on ABC Family! If you haven’t seen it yet, you can catch up on the episodes online for FREE at ABCFamily.com.

We also got the chance to chat with one of the stars of the show, Andie MacDowell! She plays the demanding and difficult boss, Gray Chandler Murray.

Thrifty Divas: What is a typical day like on the set of “Jane by Design?”

Andie MacDowell: Fast. It’s very fast. We work really hard. The writers and the producers don’t have a life. They were there all the time. The kids are just great. They’re gifted and talented and smart and funny and they gave me such amazing energy. Watching Erica work was really—I can’t tell you how good she is. The kid’s great. And they all know how lucky they are. You can just see it. Rowly was really wonderful and even helpful to me. They were just sweet.

We’d hang out in tiny little trailers. Eat—they have nice food but we don’t have very long to eat. We’re changing hair really fast. We’re getting dressed really fast and we’re running back into the set. Working late at night sometimes, which is really hard when you’re my age. Having to remember your lines at midnight. But it was all fun. It was a lot of fun.

Thrifty Divas: Who or what inspires your personal fashion style?

Andie MacDowell: My personal fashion style—I think it’s my nature probably more than anything. I just go with things that I like my personal self. The things that make me feel warm and comfortable. I’m really into boots. I like jeans. I don’t know, I’m kind of a country girl, but yet I can also enjoy dressing up because I think I was exposed to certain things in the fashion world.

I come from a small town and I grew up very simply so I think there’s a piece of me that will always be that. But I’ve been exposed to high fashion so there’s also going to be that piece as well.

You can see Andie MacDowell on Jane By Design on ABC Family Tuesdays at 9/8 central or on watch full episodes on ABCFamily.com for free.
