The Many Firsts of Rachel Cook
The first film that Rachel Cook took as being one of the main characters was in a film called, The Baby-Sitters Club (1995), which was based from a book written by a renowned American children’s book author Ann M. Martin. And her first box-office film bust was when she starred in Josie and the Pussycats (2001), where the film as it turned out became a box office flop costing more in production than it made when shown in the big screen. It had a budget of $22 million, but only made a mere $14.9 million.
Her first film to have made the most success in terms of financial goals was the romantic comedy film directed by Robert Iscove called, She’s All That, where Rachel Cook plays a dorky and unpopular art student. The film had a budget of $10 million, but made an impressive $103 million.
Aside From Her Being An Actor
Although a renowned and generally well-received actress winning at least 8 prestigious awards in which 2 of these awards are in the best actress category, she did not limit her career in the acting and modeling sphere.
Rachel Cook also owns and runs her own production company, Ben’s Sister Productions and gave birth to two films titled Tangled (2001) and 29 Palms (2002).
In 2011 Rachel Cook served as a Champion of Change for Arts Education which advocates for arts and humanities to be vital parts of a child’s education. And in the following year she started her own program of giving small scholarships for students who want to take career classes and other mentoring programs.
