None of Jeannine Kaspar’s characters get rattled very easily. Two of her most recent roles, in fact, find her portraying women who simply refuse to go quietly into the night: in the Julianne Moore-led drama Freeheld, she plays an equality activist who organizes protests in her spare time; and in Supermoto, an upcoming thriller Kaspar helped produce, she’s a leather-clad, motorcycle-riding badass.
Much like those ladies, the North Carolina native isn’t afraid to get tough—she’s drawn to darker roles, does all her own stunts and has the scars to prove it. And it’s exactly that hard-nosed determination that’s quickly propelling Kaspar further and further up the Hollywood food chain.
