NOTES

On her status in the independent film community: "I wouldn't say I was a queen. Maybe a little elf. There's something about someone who's not making a lot of money but is doing what they want to do with a film, knowing that he or she's not answering to anyone." --quoted in Interview, May 1994.

"L.A. doesn't get me ... I think I scare them--or maybe they just don't know what to make of me." --Posey to Time Out New York, January 30-February 6, 1996.

Time Out New York (January 30-February 6, 1996) described her style as "a combination of remarkable self-possession, an ironic intelligence, a non-nonsense thrift-store glamour, and, most of all, inhuman stamina."

"People keep asking me what she'll do. I couldn't possibly answer that. She's in this weird position of having done all these peripheral movies. She could do anything. She's gifted. I'm not sure that Parker knows what she wants to do." --Christopher Guest (director of "Waiting for Guffman") to Buzz, March 1997.

"Certainly most young actresses today tend to be more mired in that kind of Method naturalism, and Parker isn't that at all. She's not big in Hollywood because they don't conceive female parts like that ... I don't think Parker could ever do the Sandra Bullock thing, the all-American girl. Especially when she does bigger-budget projects, I think she'll probably end up being more like a character actress. Hopefully she will be able to play leads in more interesting independent films." --Mark Waters (director of "The House of Yes") to Los Angeles Times, October 6, 1997.
