The gallery has been updated with photos of Frankie from Season two of SMILF. These images were episode stills and promotional images. Enjoy!
Go behind the scenes with the cast of SMILF as they discuss what’s in store for Season 2. Starring Frankie Shaw. SMILF Season 2 premieres Sunday, January 20 at 10:30pm ET/PT.
Filmed on location in Boston, this season finds Bridgette trying to move forward and focus on her future, while attempting to exorcise old ghosts and atone for past misdeeds. She’s still toiling away in her day job working for narcissistic boss Ally. Meanwhile, Bridgette’s mother Tutu rallies from a heartbreaking setback punctuated by the presence of her co-dependent younger sister Jackie. Ex-boyfriend Rafi and his girlfriend Nelson Rose grow closer, while Eliza deals with her own family drama.
Season 2 returns January 20.
I’ve added a bunch of missing photos to the gallery including recent event additions, gorgeous photo session additions, magazine scans, and SMILF related images. I’m working on tracking down Frankie’s missing projects for the gallery (there’s not that many left to go). Enjoy!
Before I was an actress, I wanted to be a basketball player. Growing up in Boston, I practiced all the time. I wouldn’t leave the court unless I made 100 free throws and 100 lefty layups. My friend Phoebe and I would hustle men—we would act like we didn’t know how to play, and then we’d play two-on-two with guys and bet money. We would often win.
I went to college in New York, at Barnard, and that’s where I discovered acting. My first job was playing a waitress from Staten Island on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Eventually, I moved to L.A. I was sick of being a broke, struggling auditioner, so I wrote SMILF.
The optics of SMILF are very autobiographical. Like my character on the show, I play basketball, and I, too, have a baby daddy who’s married to a beautiful blonde actress from Australia. But then the show veers off in a million crazy directions.
Your toddler son on the show is so cute.
Those are twin girls playing my son. They’re the most beautiful humans who have ever lived and will ever live.
Won’t it be awkward when you’re in year 20 of the show and your son looks like your daughter?
It’ll be GILF then. Grandmothers! Actually, we may want to say he was really two girls. That would be a great story to tell!
Deadline did a little feature of Frankie in their new issue. I’ve added scans to the gallery. It was a good read, definitely check it out. Enjoy!
