MEETING DANO

Kazan is the granddaughter of the legendary director Elia Kazan and grew up in Los Angeles but moved to the East Coast to attend Yale University and became a resident of New York City soon after. The “Clickbait” star graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in theatre from the Ivy League School.

She and Dano, 37, met during rehearsals for the play “Things We Want,” and revealed she was in her twenties and happily single at the time but started writing about his future partner in her journal:

"I was having a great time being 24 and single, taking lots of lovers, and he came along."

Kazan explained how meeting the director was for her, stating that she was taken aback after she met Dano, who ended up featuring in her diary as she wrote about him the first night they met:

"I wrote in my journal that night, but I was too afraid even to use his name. I wrote in the margin: 'Danger PD. Must be careful so that life doesn't imitate art.' Because in the play, we fell in love."

WORKING SIDE-BY-SIDE

Since then, they have acted together three times, and Kazan told London Evening's Standard in 2018 that she did not think they would do it again.

The “What If” star added it was difficult for them to work together all day on set then having to go home together as well and jokingly quipped:

“There’s no other person in the relationship making sure that there’s enough food in the fridge and toilet paper.”

The award-winning star divulged Kazan had given birth to their first child together; a daughter named Alma Bay, now three years old. He shared that his new experience on fatherhood was exhausting, but he was in love with his baby girl:

"I'm so tired, and I'm so in love. It's so extreme. Your heart has gone supernova in one sense."

Meanwhile, Kazan’s first-time experience with motherhood was "terrifying." She told ES Magazine that it was a weird time, and everything else was overwhelming.

However, the mom of one shared they were learning a lot about their child and what she needed, more importantly, the ropes of what each parent can easily do in parenting.
