Emma Roberts, Dramatically Rich

In Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s upcoming feature It’s Kind of a Funny Story, Emma Roberts plays Noelle, a young woman saddled with stressful emotional issues and locked an adult psych ward. But when she meets Craig (Keir Gilchrist), she finds a kindred spirit and sense of connection. For Roberts, a young actress/singer whose career path is quickly moving from kid roles to adult ones, the character rang more than true. Part of the attraction for Roberts was the source material: “It’s Kind of a Funny Story is one of my favorite books,” she explained. “When I got the call to come in and meet about being in it, I was so excited because I already had an attachment to Noelle.” For her, the character is both dramatically rich and somewhat personal. “Noelle is highly sarcastic,” Roberts notes, “yet she’s cautious when it comes to other people. I can be like that at times.”
