The role of Brandon, Tina began to Hilary Swank major step in his career. She played two different people within the same individual. Despite the fact that Swank was primarily known for his work on television, she got the role because of its strong story Brandon interest as a symbol of its time.
“Find an actress for the lead role in the movie” Boys Do not Cry “was for us the most important task, – says producer Jeffrey Sharp. – All our fears vanished when Hilary Swank came to New York to audition. After passing the entrance hall of our office, Hilary hid her long hair under a cowboy hat and passed by the registrar, who announced that the young man arrived at the audition.
