Juliette Danielle Worden (born December 8, 1980)[1] is an American actress best known for portraying Lisa, the fiance of the banker Johnny in the 2003 film The Room.


The Room[edit]

Danielle was the female lead in Tommy Wiseau's cult film The Room in which she plays protagonist Johnny's (Wiseau) scheming fiance, Lisa, although she was originally cast for the supporting role of Michelle.[2]

The film was initially a notable failure, garnering abysmal reviews and exceedingly low box office returns. Shortly after the film, Danielle gave up acting to pursue other careers. However the film went on to garner cult success in various late night screenings, celebrating the film's disjointed dialog and inconsistent plot. Like many of the film's other actors, including Wiseau himself and Greg Sestero, Danielle has embraced the following the movie has achieved around the world, attending screenings and managing and using her Facebook page[3] to interact with her fans.

Her personal favorite line from the movie is, "Leave your stupid comments in your pocket."[2]

One of Danielle's most notable scenes in the movie was during a conversation with the character Michelle, when a pronounced bulge on her neck appeared several times under her red halter top.[4] That particular scene has been focused on in commentary and audience viewings. Danielle was puzzled by the phenomenon saying, "Can I just tell you that I've spent hours in front of the mirror trying to replicate that on purpose? I have no idea what was going on."[5][6]

Return to acting[edit]

In 2012, Danielle returned to acting[7] and appeared in Dead Kansas, Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws[8] and Till Morning.

Personal life[edit]

Danielle spent most of her early life in Sugar Land, Texas, a suburb of Houston.[2] She moved with her mother and sister to Los Angeles, California in the early 2000s, and decided to pursue an acting career.

Portrayal in The Disaster Artist[edit]

The 2017 film The Disaster Artist, starring James Franco,[9] dramatizes the events around the making of The Room.[10] Danielle is portrayed by actress Ari Graynor,[11][12] though Britney Spears was briefly considered for the role.[13][14][15]
