A sprite like figure bounded into my studio, mask clad with khaki hoodie as if disguised as an emo fairy. Perhaps it’s this dichotomy, combined with acting talent that has put actress Logan Polish on Hollywood’s radar. Born into an entertainment family—her father and uncle are writers, producers and directors, and her aunt is Kate Bosworth—needless-to-say, entertainment is in her DNA. Her film debut was in the 2006 acclaimed film, The Astronaut Farmer, directed by her uncle Michael Polish and written by her father Mark Polish. The film also starred Billy Bob Thornton and Virginia Madsen. 19-year-old Logan was just a child in the film, but her acting ability was clear and her path to a career in entertainment began. Her new project garnering attention is The Mosquito Coast, an Apple TV series based on the critically acclaimed novel written by Paul Theroux in 1981. The series stays true to the main theme of the novel in which the father character becomes increasingly unnerved by consumerism and strives to live off the grid, yet the series adds captivating storylines to keep viewers hooked. Eager to know more about the project and Logan herself, we spent a day with the actress and learned more about her new project, her love hate relationship with social media, and her trick to landing acting roles.
