Aline Brosh McKenna on THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA

Jan: You captured it all, so please tell me about it: tell me how you created Miranda & the extra scenes that you wrote for her; tell me how you created Nigel from a composite of characters in the book. What were your goals when you create these wonderful characters. 

Aline:  Miranda: we wanted to take Miranda & her work very seriously, & make sure the audience got a sense of what she does & why she’s so accomplished. She’s not just inspiring that behavior in the other people around her because she’s “scary,” but because she’s so accomplished & she’s achieved such a high level at work.
