A WELCOME INTRODUCTION
Has Disco in her blood
Taken’s Brooklyn Sudano has Disco in her blood.
BROOKLYN SUDANO is so easy to talk to you forget that she’s easy on the eyes, too. Disarming, natural, eager to converse. Sudano brings you in quickly, regales you with anecdotes, flashes the appropriate amount of vulnerability, riffs as well as any podcaster. She probably got it from her mother, the late Disco diva Donna Summers. “My mom would bring us out in random places, in front of her friends, and say ‘sing that Whitney Houston song,’ or ‘do the Roger Rabbit.’ She would say, ‘you never know who you could be performing for. You gotta be ready to go!” Not that Brooklyn needed much convincing — or humbling, for that matter. “The biggest gift my parents gave me,” she says, “is that at a young age I was able to see Japan, and Paris, and the many states of the country. To understand that I am just one piece of this really big puzzle.” And as she’s telling you this, you feel like you’re a piece of that puzzle, too, that you fit in. Even if you couldn’t possibly keep up with her.
Where to find Brooklyn: As one of the stars of Taken, the TV series that shows exactly how Brian Mills (Liam Neeson in the films) got his specific set of skills.
