Their First Big Break…..
Rosario Dawson: 15
Born and raised in the Lower East Side, a 15-year-old Dawson was allegedly just hangin’ on her front porch when Larry Clark and Harmony Korine noticed her and talked to her about doing a role in their upcoming film. That movie would become “Kids,” in which Dawson starred with Chloe Sevigny.
Chlöe Sevigny: 17
Originally from upper-crust Connecticut, Chloe Sevigny was 17 years old and skateboarding in Manhattan’s East Village when a fashion editor from Sassy magazine happened to pass by. She asked Sevigny to model for the mag, then made her an intern. Two years later, in 1994, Sevigny was cast in the cult indie film “Kids,” and The New Yorker published a seven-page article on Sevigny titled “Chloé’s Scene” .
