Emmy Rossum SMASHES guitar filming emotional scene as 80s billboard icon Angelyne for miniseries


Emmy Rossum filmed an emotional scene in Los Angeles this week that involved her smashing a guitar.

The 35-year-old Shameless star is playing the 1980s billboard icon Angelyne in an upcoming miniseries created by Lars And The Real Girl screenwriter Nancy Oliver.

She had an anguished expression on her face during her new scene as she raised the guitar over her head to swing back down.

Her big scene starts when Angelyne is led up the sidewalk from behind by a man who is possibly meant to be the character’s beau Jordan Michaels.

Jordan was the man who initially discovered Angelyne by adding her to his band Baby Blue in the late 1970s.

The man in the scene has his hands over Angelyne’s eyes until he suddenly removes them to show her a surprise somewhere up above.

Angelyne looks up in shock as the man behind her smiles giddily, evidently under the impression she will be delighted by what he had done.

But instead Angelyne flies into a rage, resulting in the fiery moment where Emmy was filmed smashing up the guitar.

Emmy is a producer on the program along with her husband Sam Esmail, who is best known for creating the series Mr. Robot.

Angelyne, who was born Ronia Goldberg in communist Poland before immigrating to America, had her real identity dug up by the Hollywood Reporter.

That 2017 Hollywood Reporter article by Gary Baum forms the basis of the upcoming miniseries which will air on Peacock.

Angelyne herself denounced the series to DailyMail.com last year as ‘completely untrue’ and ‘fictionalized to the hilt.’ 

She remarked: ‘I don’t think they want me to see it, and beyond that I don’t want to see it,’ but said she had given the makers notes on how she was ‘visually’ shown. 

‘But nobody’s going to look like me,’ she declared. ‘There’s only one Marilyn, there’s only one Elvis, there’s only one Michael Jackson, and there’s only one Angelyne. People can try to emulate but really there’s only one.’

Emmy’s latest sighting comes after her Shameless co-star Emma Kenney hit the headlines for her blistering comments on their working relationship.

The show starred Emmy as Fiona Gallagher, the eldest sister in a large southside Chicago who winds up having to raise her siblings.

Emma played Fiona’s younger sister Debbie with whom she had an increasingly contentious onscreen relationship as the show went on.

On the Call Her Daddy podcast Emma shared that ‘the set became more of a positive place, I’m not gonna lie’ after Emmy left the show at the end of season nine.

While Emmy was still on the program ‘I’d go to set some days and I’d be very anxious about having a scene with her because if she had a bad day, she made it a bad day for everybody,’ Emma alleged.

Emma said that ‘in good and bad ways’ they had a ‘sister relationship’ in which Emmy was at times a ‘good influence’ and at other times provided ‘not the best advice.’

A representative for Emmy did not respond to a request for comment.
