Tropes

  • Banned in China: She and her films were banned in Philippines after some comments she made in Variety while promoting Brokedown Palace (which was filmed in the Philippines) were deemed insensitive by the government.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: She occasionally play Ms. Fanservice characters.
  • Persona Non Grata: She was banned from entering the Philippines.
  • What Could Have Been: She was up for an unspecified role in Schindler's List but she would have had to move to Poland for several months during the school year and the studio couldn’t promise her an on-set teacher so her parents declined. Danes is only a year older than Anna Mucha, so the role may have been the character of Danka Dresner.
