An October 1995 behind-the-scenes pic from her first movie depicts a 10-year-old Trachtenberg posing with co-star Gregory Smith, who played her BFF-turned-rival-turned-BFF again, Simon "Sport" Rocque, during rehearsals for the film. Trachtenberg explains how the shirt she's wearing was her "lucky" t-shirt from the Gap, and was what she wore during her Harriet the Spy audition — and then never wanted to take off:
Harriet the Spy had it all: a girl who got things done, Rosie O'Donnell being the world's best nanny, and a seriously epic paint fight scene (complete with the slap heard 'round the world). Oh, golly!
#tbt Today's #throwbackthursday is a behind the scenes photo of #Sport & #Harriet during rehearsals. That was my lucky tshirt from @gap. I actually auditioned for #HarrietTheSpy in that tshirt, and then wanted to wear it all the time. I wore that #red satin @diesel baseball cap like a #boss. This photo was taken in October 1995, a few days later I turned 10 years old on the first day of #filming. #freckles game strong! ❤️📓🔎✏️🎬 (this could also be the last evidence photo that I once smiled in pictures. #restingbitchface #rbf 😈)
