When Danny Strong came to the stage to accept his first Emmy Award for writing HBO’s Game Change it was the culmination of a remarkably successful career transition. Strong is perhaps best known for his acting roles in films such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997).
While he continues to act — appearing this year on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy — Strong has also firmly established himself as an acclaimed writer of political dramas. The first script Strong sold was Recount (2008), based on the 2000 election.
This year’s Emmy winner, Game Change, focuses on John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign.
So what’s the secret to Strong’s success as a screenwriter?
