Fashion, dreams and friendship within a women's magazine

For three Veinteañeras York protagonists of Bold Type, working in women's magazine Scarlet is her dream. But life in Twenties is not always pink, or at least it seems in this series that combines comedy and drama and whose first ten-chapter season is now available on Amazon Prime Video. "I'd say it's a series about three women navigating through ir twenties, trying to deal with love, ir careers and ir friendship. The twenty is an important stage of life, it is time to make mistakes and learn from m, "says actress Katie Stevens in telephone conversation with country. Stevens plays Jane, one of three protagonists of this series and who, when story begins, has just achieved a promotion as a journalist of magazine.

The Bold Type is claimed as a feminist series for several reasons according to Stevens, which highlights representation of friendship among women. "They help each or and are encouraged to improve. There are many series that have in ir center women's friendships, but y are betrayed or stabbed in back. This is not how female friendship works, "emphasizes this actress and singer of Portuguese origins.

Stevens also draws attention to figure of head of magazine, Jacqueline Carlyle, character interpreted by Meloa Hardin and inspired by Joanna Coles, former editor-in-chief of fashion magazine Cosmopolitan and current head of content of publications of Hearst Group, which is also executive producer of series. Far from character who played Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada, also head of a magazine of similar features, Jacqueline is a mentor who supports and encourages young women. "It is important to watch women in television who support or women and men who support strong women."

The actress, Mrs. Hardin, plays Jacqueline Carlyle, a character inspired by Joanna Coles, editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan.

The writing of series is also inspired by that of Cosmopolitan, a place that actresses of this fiction visited before starting to shoot. "I spoke to people who make columns similar to those of my character, column of Sex and dating. When you write about certain topics, you have to live experiences you are talking about to do it in most real way possible. I find that fascinating. If y write about dating, y really have to go out with people. If you write about new fashions, you have to go out in street with that new fashion to try and see how it makes m feel. It's a very honest way to tell your stories. It's something that Jane, my character, also has to do in series, so I liked to see what happens in reality. "

The Bold Type shares some features with or series also set in New York and with female prominence, such as Gossip Girl or sex in New York. In fact, Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, also wrote a weekly column with her vital wanderings. "Yes y are similar series, but y are different in how y show how women build ir own way in new York. The protagonists of sex in new York are older than us and have ir careers done, know who y are and where y are, while our series follows how protagonists become women who will be in future. We could be considered almost as a prequel to sex in New York, a previous phase, "says actress, who before Bold Type had already participated in American series Faking It after its passage through ninth edition of American Idol Music contest , where it ended in eighth position.

Despite being a series about women working in a female magazine and showing "how women go after ir dreams and ir dream career," as Katie Stevens says, it is not a story that excludes men as spectators. "Many men have recognized me on street for series, or y see her with her girlfriend. There was even a man who came up to me and told me that he was trying to convince his girlfriend to see her because he saw her and liked her, "remembers actress in laughter. "In addition, I believe that series is within feminist movement, which also includes men," he tops.
