Arienne Mandi on…

Hanging with the OGs

 “I remember Jennifer [Beals] saying, ‘We had our thing. We want you guys to have your own experience, and we’re here if you need anything’.”

Filming sex scenes

“There’s an intimacy coordinator present for every meeting, that you can just rely on to completely be your voice. That’s a really beautiful thing that’s been established in the industry.”

Her own sexuality

“If there were to be anything close to what I feel it would be pan. I accept love in all forms and I give love. It’s just all love.”

  1. I would love to see Bette and Dani have a fling in the L Word Feneration Q. Please make it happen.

      1. The age difference is just too great. A mentor/mentee relationship would be better.
