If you have seen all AHS, Undoing Y Tell me your secrets or just a credit on Rabe’s resume, I’m willing to bet you already know that he often excels in whatever show he’s on. But if you’re only familiar with Rabe’s work on television, it’s time to better understand she has really accomplished over the years in this episode of Collider Ladies Nightbecause Rabe’s achievements are especially strong and his aspirations will be very exciting to follow as his star continues to grow.

Rabe’s potential in that regard was apparent early on, even when he first obtained his coveted Screen Actors Guild card. While studying at Northwestern, Rabe chose to take a semester off to participate in a screenwriting program at NYU. But, while in New York, another opportunity presented itself:

“I went to New York for a semester. I went into this scriptwriting program and I think I did something like three days and was obsessed with it. And then I did this audition for Mona Lisa Smile. It was a way to get my SAG card. They only paid me scale, but it was a huge amount of money for me at the time. Then I put it away and it kind of helped me when I graduated. So I ended up not getting those credits and working during that time and then I came back. ”

Mona Lisa smile hit theaters in 2003 and settled at Wellesley College in the 1950s. He starred in Julia Roberts As an art history teacher, eager to encourage her students to follow the lives that seem true to them, rather than the lives they are expected to lead. The set featured a lot of very familiar faces at the time, including Julia Stiles, Kirsten dunst Y Maggie gyllenhaal, but soon a handful of Mona Lisa smile cast members who only had only three lines in the movie would become powerful and familiar names.

“I felt like it was just a great group of wonderful women. They were all very generous. There was like a little package of us. I think they each had about three lines in the movie. It was Krysten Ritter and Kristen Connolly. I have worked with Kristen several times since then. I think there were four or five of us and it felt like this little group of us where we were probably talking a total of 20 lines between the five of us, but it was a great experience. You felt part of the fabric of the film and all those wonderful actresses playing all the other parts that I have now come across and worked with. So yeah, it was a great start. But at the time he was very focused on going back to school. There was no part of me that said, ‘Okay, after this, I’ll stay and audition.’ I really wanted to go back to Northwestern. ”

It turns out that this urge to finish school sparked a recurring nightmare that may seem very relatable to some, including myself. Rabe laughed and explained:

“I still have this recurring nightmare now that I am told I don’t have enough credits to graduate. It’s like going out without your clothes in a recurring dream, but I still have that dream, so I really remember counting the credits and [going], ‘Okay, I’ll graduate on time if I do this, if I take this time off’ ”
