Talk about a fashion moment: Project Runway is hitting a major milestone. The Lifetime reality TV series will begin its 15th season on September 15.

“Season 15 is going to be a historic season,” judge Zac Posen tells EW. “Get ready — get ready for great talent, get ready for a wild ride on that sewing machine.”

Of the designers joining this season, host Heidi Klum says there’s a lot of talent and innovation, which allows the show to stay fresh after 14 years. “We’re not tired of it yet,” she says. “The concept is the same but the people are different, the challenges are different, and our guest judges are different — and they always bring something great to the table, too.”

Guest judges for the season include actresses Priyanka Chopra, Emily Ratajkowski, Nina Dobrev, Camilla Belle, Jamie King, Shiri Appleby, Sabrina Carpenter, and Carly Chaikin as well as Today anchor Savannah Guthrie, fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff, Project Runway Junior judge Kelly Osbourne, model Lucky Blue Smith, and Marie Claire editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider.

Klum and Posen will return as judges alongside vet Nina Garcia (who calls this an “emotional” season) and designer mentor Tim Gunn.

Season 15 of Project Runway premieres Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.

After the rollercoaster events of season one, in which she cleared her name, saved millions of lives, and discovered that the mastermind behind it all was the very man who had trained her at Quantico, American hero Alex Parrish was given a shocking reward: She was fired by the FBI. But in the final moments of the season finale, she was given the chance to serve her country again, in the clandestine ranks of United States’ top intelligence agency, the CIA.

When season two begins, Alex finds herself at “The Farm,” the CIA’s mysterious training facility. As Alex navigates the dark world of espionage, far different and more dangerous than what she’s learned before, she’s pulled into the center of a deadly conspiracy that not only threatens the lives of this country’s citizens, but the lives of countless others across the globe. This conspiracy calls everyone around her into question, be it new faces from the CIA or old ones from the Bureau. Prepare yourselves for another thrilling and heart-stopping adventure loaded with surprises you won’t see coming.

“Quantico” stars Priyanka Chopra as Alex Parrish, Blair Underwood as Owen Hall, Aunjanue Ellis as Miranda Shaw, Jake McLaughlin as Ryan Booth, Johanna Braddy as Shelby Wyatt, Yasmine Al Massri as Nimah and Raina Amin, Russell Tovey as Harry Doyle, Aaron Diaz as Leon Velez and Pearl Thusi as Dayana Mampasi.

Indian superstar Priyanka Chopra is not making any compromises in swapping Bollywood for Hollywood.

The former Miss World, who has won an army of fans in the US since taking the lead in the American spy thriller television series “Quantico” last year, refuses to be stereotyped by her beauty or her origins.

“I didn’t want to do a show that would stereotype me or put Indian people into a box. I’m a leading actress in India and I wanted to make sure I was a leading actress in whatever I did,” she said.

“I would not compromise on that,” said the star of the ABC show in which she plays an FBI agent suspected of committing a terrorist attack.

Proud to call herself a “strong-willed feminist”, the 34-year-old is determined to build her career and still “have lots of babies. But there is nothing under way on that,” she told AFP in Paris on a visit to promote “Quantico”, whose second series begins in September.

“I’ve still to find the right guy. That’s important,” she laughed.

Like her character in “Quantico”, Alex Parrish, who has to go into hiding to clear her name, Chopra sticks to her guns.

She has turned down roles in Britain because she was “always asked to play the stereotype of an Indian”.

The spy show’s international success is changing all that.

That has been such a hit may have surprised some but Chopra — the first South Asian to headline a US network series — said its backstory of people with secrets is universal.

“This show talks about people with secrets and everyone has secrets. Terrorism is a huge part of our reality whether you like it or not,” she said.

“It is the most cowardly way of instilling fear to make people understand someone’s belief.”

But jumping to conclusions about terrorism was equally dangerous, she said. “In America it is easy to frame a brown girl” like Alex, she added.

Chopra’s ability to carry such a complex character has opened other more meaty roles, with the actress playing the baddie in the new “Baywatch” film due for release in May.

“I make the good guys’ lives miserable,” he said with some relish.

Having campaigned to close the gender pay gap in Bollywood, she credits her mother, a doctor who served in the Indian army, for helping forge her feminist principles.

“She raised me to be the kind of girl who thinks, who has opinions too. For so many years women were told to act a certain way, to dress a certain way, to think a certain way, even not to think at all.

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra feels that instead of feeling jealous of each other women support women. She was addressing over 100 adolescents from different schools in Delhi and Haryana highlighting the need to give a Fair Start to every child.

The Baywatch and Quantico star talks to Ashok Kumar of OneWorld South Asia on issues related women’s empowerment.

Excerpts from the interview:

OneWorld South Asia: Priyanka Chopra dared to dream in her life. Why do you think Indian girls should also dream like her to make it big in life?
Priyanka: I don’t think they should dream like me. But, yes they should definitely dream, period!

Girls around the world have been told for the longest time that they do not have the right to dream, that they don’t have the right to live.

They have been told that they don’t have the right to go to school and they don’t have the right to choose who they should marry.

OWSA: You are supporting many social causes. What is that one cause that is dear to you?
Priyanka: As a woman, I feel very strongly about a lot of things. I am willing to do a lot of things. And, I don’t think there is a need to say one thing is more important than the other.

But the one thing that I definitely stand for strongly is about helping the future generation, globally, of both girls and boys, adolescents, in understanding what their best potential is. That is the most important cause for me irrespective of how, with whom or where I do it.

OWSA: Why is it important for girls to stand up for themselves?
Priyanka: Girls should be taught that no one else will fight on their behalf but themselves. So, the basic right of a girl is what is required and if we don’t fight for it ourselves I am sure no one else is going to do.

Mothers should teach boys to respect girls and men should come forward to educate girls. They can play a big role in changing the mindset. Women should harness their entrepreneurship skills and talent which is necessary for leading an independent life.

Feminism needs two things. One is that women should take care of each other. Women should encourage and support women instead of feeling jealous of each other.

OWSA: How do you think it will help people if they look up to celebrities?
Priyanka: People should look up to people they want to look up to and not just any celebrity. I don’t think so. I think you need to look up to people you admire and not just because someone is famous, no, not at all.

OWSA: Why do you think girls are not welcome in our society even at their birth?
Priyanka: I feel that India is a very difficult country. We live in a society where girls are told that they are jewels of the family. A girl becomes synonymous of the family honour. To protect that honour, families start discriminating against girls and that leads us to a vicious cycle of boy preference.

Parents don’t send their girls out as they are scared of crimes like kidnapping and rapes haunting girls so frequently. Despite challenges, parents should take chance on their daughters as they have the same capabilities of a guy.

India is full of disparities where the difference between the privileged and the underprivileged is very stark. Our country is like a complete world. There are different states with different cultures, languages, festivals, castes, scripts and religions. Amidst all the existing disparities, we have forgotten humanity.

OWSA: What kind of struggles did you face in your life and how did you overcome them?
Priyanka: Struggles never end in life. People think that just because you are successful you struggles have ended, but it is not like that.

Success is not a destination. Like, for example, if I get hundred per cent in my board exams and think I am super successful, it is wrong to think like that. If you get A in every exam you are bound to come first in a class. If every day you could do to the best of your ability, no one can deny you success.

Your struggles need to be consistent because success is like a journey. You have to strive for excellence every year, every time. There is no substitute for hard work for anybody.

OWSA: Why do you think even educated people prefer boys?
Priyanka: The country wants boys. Nobody wants girls. The sex ratio is going down because girls are not wanted. Only boys can’t lead the generation.

Not just in India but across the world girls are told that they are second grade persons. We need to understand that men can’t do anything alone. Young generation holds the power of this country and men should come forward to educate and empower girls.

Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra will be part of the jury for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this year. The actor, who is currently shooting for the second season of her American show Quantico in New York, USA, is looking forward to the event in September.

“It is exciting. I have always promoted new talent, and created opportunities for them. This (being part of the jury) will help me do that too,” says Priyanka, who launched her production house last year with the intention to encourage budding talent.

Priyanka will judge the Short Films section with celebrities such as Hollywood actor James Franco, Canadian director Xavier Dolan, and American director Ava DuVernay. “I have always found short films exciting. Digital is the future. I am interested in learning how a story can be told in a short span of time,” she says.

Incidentally, in January, Priyanka produced a web series (she also appeared on it), titled It’s My City. Ask her if she plans to make more in the future, and she says, “We are planning and developing a lot of content for films, television and digital platforms. Let’s see how it goes.”

Priyanka has a large fan base in Canada, as the first season of her American show was extensively shot in Montreal. In the past, she has made appearances at TIFF for the screenings of her films — What’s Your Raashee? (2005) and Mary Kom (2015).

It is only those who know neither an inner call nor an outer doctrine whose plight truly is desperate; that is to say, most of us today, in this labyrinth without and within the heart.
— Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949)

There are many writers who have waxed on about the electromagnetic properties of fame—about the energy that is imparted on an individual once they become a household name to a significant enough proportion of the population. As I sit across from Priyanka Chopra—known simply as P.C. to the one and a quarter billion people in her native India, and a rising proportion of the rest of the world—while she is whisked from a photo shoot in downtown L.A. to her Beverly Hills hotel, I can understand why.

To say that the actress/writer/singer/ producer/philanthropist’s magnetism comes from her fame is to confuse causation and correlation. As she flips her perfectly tousled hair, and answers my questions in a voice that is at once gravelly and honeyed, it is apparent that the force that has driven the 33-year-old overachieving daughter of two doctors from the prestigious La Martinière Girls’ School to winning the Miss India competition; to winning the Miss World competition; to over 50 Bollywood films; to starring in ABC’s Quantico; to the upcoming Baywatch reboot… has nothing to do with how she looks or how many people know her name.

In Joseph Campbell’s seminal work, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, he identities several themes found in major heroic myths—from Osiris to Prometheus to the Buddha—that speak to the hero’s origins, and what makes them exceptional. Here, we use these motifs to identify the heroic demarcations in Priyanka Chopra’s story.

Part I: The Ordinary World

At nine years old, Chopra was shown how fortunate her life was compared to many Indian people. Her mother—an OBGYN— decided that, instead of the roster of holiday plans Chopra had lined up, she would accompany her parents on the rounds they made to local villages to treat the girls and women. In those villages she saw girls who were kept at home when their brothers were sent to school. These young women were told that education was no use to them because they would be married off anyway. “That gets me,” Chopra says, “Because that was the one thing my parents always allowed me to have. Every year I used to change what I wanted to be, every year I would tell my mom ‘I want to be a pilot,’ ‘I want to be a maid,’ ‘I want to be a cook,’ ‘I want to be a ballerina,’ I want to play the drums,’ and I did all of it! My parents never made me feel that there was anything wrong with it.” Chopra cites this early in uence as the reasoning behind her charity foundation—which provides healthcare and education fees for approximately 70 children in India— and her work with UNICEF (she became a Goodwill Ambassador in 2010).

Part II: Call To Adventure

“I left from the time I was 12 to 16 [to study abroad] and when I came back I had grown into this pretty, feminine thing, from being a tomboy with scratched out knees,” says Chopra. We’re talking about her entrance into the Miss India competition. Chopra and her mother were taking pictures at a photo studio for a scholarship program that she was applying for and the photographer asked if he could take a few more. Her mother sent those in to the competition and Chopra was invited to compete. “I just wanted to skip my pre-boards (which are our prep exams for our major exams in 12th grade), and I just never thought I’d win. My mom didn’t think I’d win. Nobody thought I’d win— I had never even worn heels in my life!” Chopra pauses for a beat, brushing her hair from her face, “But I did, and after that I ended up winning Miss World.”

Those early wins stoked a re that had fueled her through a childhood and adolescence tinged by adult truths: Chopra was bullied for the color of her skin and her accent when living with relatives in New England, and the only character on television that looked and talked like her was Apu of The Simpsons. After Miss World, it was as if Chopra made a pact with herself to take on the world.

Part III: Crossing The Threshold

Chopra tenses a bit when she talks about the American conception of Bollywood, and rightfully so. For an industry that is one of the largest in the world—producing about 800 lms and selling four billion tickets a year—the Hindi lm business is largely misunderstood within the United States, and usually relegated to the same category as Broadway musicals and Renaissance Fairs: all well and good if that’s what you’re into. This attitude ignores the “hindie” lm movement— smaller, independent lms that tackle more dif cult subject matter—which has been gaining momentum for the last decade or so. Films like Aligarh (2015)—which tells the story of a school teacher who was suspended from his job because of his sexual orientation—exemplify the new Bollywood, one which caters to an audience who grew up consuming an international entertainment diet.

While many foreign stars dream about ‘crossing over’ to American entertainment, Chopra expected to be wooed. After starring in her rst lm at age 21 in Andaaz (2003), the next year she achieved critical and commercial success in Aitraaz (2004) as Mrs. Sonia Roy, a woman who accuses her ex-lover of raping her, and is sued by him for sexual harassment. The role was a turning point for Chopra, who went on to play meatier parts and is now, notably, one of the highest paid actresses in Bollywood.

When ABC approached Chopra to be the lead in a new series, they did so with 26 pilots for her to choose from. I ask her why she chose Quantico, a show based around several young FBI recruits told partly in flashbacks as Chopra’s character is questioned and forced on the lam after a major terror attack. “It was quintessential television,” she says, “It was everything I would want to watch in a show.”

Chopra doesn’t mince words when it comes to her goals. Earlier in the conversation, when I venture that—for someone as famous as she is—fame and money don’t seem to be her goal, she responds, “Pop culture influences change so much in such a subliminal way, I want to be a part of that. It’s so much easier to do an artsy thing, and say, ‘this is my art.’ I’m a sensible person, and I truly believe that box office is king. I truly believe that we are in the business of entertainment. To be able to nd the amalgamation of business and art—that’s fun, that’s a win on every level.”

Part IV: Tests, Allies, Enemies

If Aitraaz gave Chopra a taste of what it was like to play the villain, she got the full meal filming Baywatch. “Victoria Leeds [my role in Baywatch] was written for a guy first—a male villain,” she explains when I ask about her role, “And it’s so much fun because, Dwayne [Johnson] was telling me after we finished one scene, ‘I’ve actually never had a nemesis I haven’t crushed before, I can’t do that to you because you’re just mean.’” She lets out a rolling, cornhusk- dry laugh, “I’m just really mean in the lm— you know when you don’t know what to do with someone who’s just unapologetically patronizing, and condescending? What do you say to someone like that?” I ask Chopra if she prefers to play the villain versus the hero. “There are pros and cons to both,” she replies, “If you don’t pull it off, you’re screwed, and people are like, ‘Oh, girls can’t be villains,’ but I find it liberating, because when are we ever going to be so bad in real life? It’s so much fun to be bad—it’s luxurious.”

I get the feeling that like many people who have risen above their assigned station in life, Chopra carries the knowledge that if she fails, she fails not as Priyanka Chopra, but as all driven women of color. “You’re known by your last failure,” she says to me earlier in the ride, “People don’t remember success as much. They’ll acknowledge it, and they’ll say, what are they going to do next? Where is the failure going to come?”

Part V: Approach To The Inmost Cave

Chopra was recently on the cover of Time’s ‘100 Most In uential People.’ In the article, written by Dwayne Johnson, the actor says of his Baywatch co-star: “We always quote the saying ‘Wear your success like a t-shirt, not like a tuxedo.’” When I bring this up to Chopra she laughs with delight, “He stole that from me!” she says. It speaks well to her character that Chopra spends the majority of our interview talking about hard work and gratitude. When I ask her where she thinks her work ethic comes from she mentions her father, who was an army doctor but sadly passed away a few years ago. She carries a piece of him with her everywhere: a note in his rounded, looping handwriting tattooed on her wrist, it reads “Daddy’s lil girl…”

Her phone rings and she hands it to an assistant to take the call. We lapse into silence for a minute as the assistant arranges for someone to get a key from reception. Chopra folds her legs underneath her and looks out the window, “Success can’t be announced, like: ‘Here is a successful person and they are walking through the door,’” she muses, “it has to be discovered — stardom has to be discovered, and it has to be easy, and it has to be effortless. If you are aware of the fact that you are a star then you’re just not. That can’t be the agenda, that can’t be the reason. People who leave legacies, people who are real stars are just being—and it’s in their inherent being that you find stardust.”

Part VI: Ordeal

As the SUV approaches the hotel, I ask Chopra what’s next, and she confirms a much-needed vacation, saying, “I put my foot down, I said I want ten days to be at home with my family. Every hour of my life for the next six months is scheduled.” Her publicist in the front seat gives a knowing laugh, “It’s true!” she insists, “We know what we’re doing until December.”

I recall that at the beginning of the conversation I asked Chopra, in the spirit of the theme of this issue, what adventure meant to her. “Adventure is fearlessness,” she replied, “you can’t decide or plan an adventure. The point of an adventure is to not know what you are getting into, and to be in unfamiliar territory, to walk in without a plan — most people find that the hardest thing to do, most of us want to hold on to a sense of control.”

“So you’re not a control freak?” I ask.

“No, I am a control freak!” She flips her hair, turning towards me in her seat, “I delegate, but I need to see what’s done. So I control everything because I have a very set vision and mood about where my career is going, and it’s very organic, so I don’t like to conform it to a plan. I think I’m adventurous when it comes to my work, because I like to do things that are a little to the left, not conventional, yet within pop culture.”

We pull up in front of the hotel, and Chopra reaches over to hug me. She is still engaging, but I can feel her laser focus shifting—to dinner, packing, getting on the plane, seeing her family, an upcoming lm festival in Spain, the London and Paris release of Quantico, filming the second season of Quantico, the rest of her life.

As I walk toward the street to meet my Uber I look back to see Chopra striding into the hotel lobby the same way she does everything: like she’s there to win.

The original interview is in French but it’s been translated to English so might not be completely accurate 🙂

TELEVISION / INTERVIEW – With its new series, M6 realized last week its best start in nearly 10 years. A success that owes much to his heroine. Le Figaro met the Bollywood superstar late June during his visit to Paris. Confidences.

Starting with a bang for the new series of M6. Quantico tells the story and the mare a rookie FBI wrongly accused of committing the attack the worst ever experienced in the United States since September 11 2016. At its launch last week, the series brought together up to 4, 8 million viewers.

Alternating two time frames (between past memories and present), as in Lost , multiplying misunderstandings and false leads, the lure of Quantico is especially much to his pugnacious heroin Alex, as formidable as Jason Bourne, trying to understand who within his promotion was trapped. Former Miss World, the performer is the Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra . The actress of 34 years has a statue and several Indian Oscars nominations to his credit. His charisma, his energy do forgive all improbable scenario. Great show, Quantico ? Yes, but with more soul and an open mind notables.

While in Paris in late June, actress that is also seen in the film adaptation of Baywatch had told the Figaro that had prompted him to choose Quantico and the plunge of the large to the small screen.

LE FIGARO – Miss World, movie star in India, singer … How did you get on American television?
Priyanka Chopra. – I was in Los Angeles currently recording songs. At a party, I met a casting director. I am a fan of many American series and she asked me why I never played it. Turn a series takes a long time, the pace of the movie where we work for four months on a film was fine for me. I left India but a few weeks later she joined me and convinced me to sign an option with ABC. All I had to do was to read some scripts. If no scenario I liked, I was not obliged to follow. I returned to California and I read 26 drivers developed by ABC last year. Quantico was my favorite.

What has rained in the concept of Quantico ?
The series is about entertaining the problems the world faces and the way people like you and me, are responding. My character feels no remorse. Alex does not censor herself, she lives her life as she sees fit. Especially there are not many heroines like her who have the right to save the planet! Alex is a sum of paradoxes: both tough and vulnerable, both slightly destroyed because it endures without ever losing confidence.

How did you prepare for this role?
I have done many action movies in India thus embody a member of the security forces was not new. Several former FBI agents came to talk to us about their experience within the organization. However, I have worked hard my American accent with a teacher! I also had to change my body language: do not shake hands when talking, which is very Indian, walk with a little more confident and feminine. I had to be convincing in the role of a young American woman. The shooting was very demanding physically because we had to be credible recruits. We trained in the evening when we had more than ten hours of presence before the cameras, and I speak of a conventional gym workout but fight scenes melee!

What were your models to give life to Alex?
I see it more like a Jason Bourne in the women that as a disciple of Sherlock Holmes. It proceeds by deduction but looking for evidence. It is physically and emotionally hard to break.

Do you have a lot in common with your character?
No. Alex is bold, I’m shy. She does not trust anyone, I’m pretty gullible.

Like Lost or Once upon a time, Quantico features two eras: it happened in Alex’s training at Quantico and this happened six months later in New York when the attack was committed and Alex had taken her position at the FBI. Was it difficult to come and go between the two periods without knowing what had happened in between?
At first I asked myself many questions but our writers knew where they were going. Anyway, Alex has not a clue what is happening, the person who wanted him to wear the hat. Be ignorant, like her, I actually help.

Have you tried to guess the identity of the traitor Quantico ?
We did not know his name mostly jusu’à Advent-last episode. Every week we made paris. Some of the actors have identified the suspect but me, absolutely not!

Portray terrorism as part of a series is not clear. How to avoid anxiety?
Unfortunately, no matter where we live, terrorism is part of our life. It is the most powerful tool that exists to impose on someone, for fear his own convictions. Quantico mentions this fact by coating it in a fun pop envelope. In the series there is music, love stories, secret.

Are there times where Quantico stuck too closely to reality and where the writers had to change course?
Quantico is not a docudrama. All worst-case scenarios to which our writers think have probably already occurred but inject a particular tragedy in one episode is not the goal. Under his jacket entertainment, the series addresses current geopolitical issues: the Israeli-Palestinian issue, the Indo-Pakistani relations. I do not think it does hide behind political correctness.

The series reserve increasingly a place of choice for independent and leading heroines. Is this also the strength of Quantico ?

Quantico has mostly interesting characters and goes against stereotypes. When did we last see time an Indian actor not to start dancing and singing in the middle of a scene? Alex is not a computer scientist, engineer or doctor. Similarly, I have never seen a woman wearing a hijab portrayed as a patriot willing to defend the United States. We characters could not be more different: a Mormon, a gay, a survivor of a sect …

What Quantico taught you as an actress?
You do not need to know everything that will happen to your character. Just trust your instincts as an actress. The television experience is very different from that of cinema. In a soap opera, you need above all to know your characters. In a film you have to know the history to develop your role.

Have you discovered something about you going?
I do not like the cold winters: we were shooting in Montreal! I hope New York where we will put our suitcases for the second season will be more lenient.

Is Quantico opened doors for you?
I was lucky enough to never miss proposals and opportunities. But the international success of Quantico allowed me to travel extensively to promote the series and meet people that I would never have crossed if not and vice versa. The show made ​​me know in countries where my name was not saying anything. It is a privileged cultural exchange.

Are you a big fan of series?
I have time to watch that when I’m at home or makeup but I like Narcos, Castle, Grey’s Anatomy or Netflix documentary Making a murderer .
