About the Lisa Jakub Interview

Hey Reddit!
My name is Lisa Jakub. I was an actor from the ages of 4 - 22, in more than 40 TV shows and movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Independence Day, Matinee and a bunch of cheesy made-for-television movies that mostly just aired in Denmark.

I enjoyed acting for a while, but I eventually realized that it just wasn't my passion. So, I ran away from LA - to search for what I wanted to do with my life and discover who I was underneath the actor. As it turns out, I'm a writer. It's kind of usual to live your dream by leaving Hollywood, rather than running towards it, but I'm now living a life that feels more authentic to me.

My first book is out this week, it's called You Look Like That Girl. http://youlooklikethatgirl.com/ It's a memoir about growing up in - and leaving - the film industry. I also write at http://www.lisajakub.net/ and various freelance outlets.

It's just me and the dog sitting here doing this AMA, so please prepare yourself for typos and profanity. My dog has quite a mouth on her. Let's go. AMA!
