Ahlan! Loves: Bryce’s Hollywood Diplomacy
Bryce Dallas Howard

Why? She’s T-Town legend Ron Howard’s daughter – he of Richie Cunningham off Happy Days fame! – so anyone who grew up with The Fonz coming round for tea is defo going to be spectacularly well-versed in being cool under pressure.

Kudos then to Bryce Dallas Howard for dealing with the stickier-than-an-explosion-in-a-fly-paper-and-treacle-factory question of stepping into Rachelle LeFevre’s shoes in Eclipse.

“Rachelle really created an incredible character,” said Bryce of Rach’s baddie vampire, Victoria. “I feel like the uproar that occurred was really appropriate, because part of the joy of seeing a franchise, you’ve seen the actors grow.” Delicately adding, “I hope to honour everything that she created.”

Bryce, you just gave Hollywood a lesson in humility and respect.
