Stana Katic Rocks Big Hair and a Leather Jacket as Singer Genya Raven in CBGB!
Get ready to see Castle star Stana Katic as you've never seen her before! Rolling Stone has two sexy new pictures — here and here — of the 34-year-old actress behind the scenes of her new film, CBGB.
Stana plays the role of bad girl rocker Genya Raven, the lead singer of a '60s rock band called Goldie & the Gingerbreads. The movie, which is expected to be released in 2013, features an in-depth look at CBGB, New York City's infamous and now defunct punk rock nightclub.
To capture the true essence of her character, Stana did quite a bit of research on Genya, who rose to fame at the age of 17. On Stana's reading list was Lollipop Lounge: Memoirs of a Rock & Roll Refugee, written by the rocker herself in 2004.
"After I read the book, I met her, and it was, like, ‘Wow, you broke down all these doors and did all this stuff way before Madonna or Lady Gaga or even Patti Smith,'" Stana recently gushed. "She said, 'Yeah, but they don’t know who I am. I never had time to be famous. I was too busy breaking all the rules.'"
With just a bit of hairspray and a killer motorcycle jacket, Stana was able to temporarily transform into Genya for the film, and we think she looks smoking!
