Guinevere Turner to Guest on USA Scriptchat November 24th!

Guinevere Turner @turnerguinevere is a writer, director and actor who has been working in film and TV since her 1994 debut film Go Fish. She went on to act in several films, including The Watermelon Woman, Chasing Amy, and Treasure Island.  Eventually she teamed up with Mary Harron to write American Psycho and then The Notorious Bettie Page. She was a staff writer and story editor on Showtime’s The L Word, and she played a recurring character on that show. She has written and directed five short films, two of which showed at Sundance, some of which played on TV and around the world, and some of which were completely ignored.

Currently, Guinevere is in pre-production of her feature film, Creeps. Check out her Indiegogo campaign for her fun video of puppets on drugs... oh yeah, puppets are the best marketing tool ever.
