Yesterday, Dan Reynolds and Daniel Wayne Sermon of Imagine Dragons appeared at Netflix’s Los Angeles headquarters, performing hits like “Whatever It Takes” and “Radioactive.”
“Guardians of the Galaxy” actress Karen Gillan shared that she is at the WGA East strike on her Instagram story Wednesday.
Author Taylor Jenkins Reid, who executive produced the adaptation of her best-selling book “Daisy Jones & the Six” and who is also a member of WGA West, posted a photo of her striking with “Daisy Jones” writer and executive producer Will Graham.
Reid held a sign reading, “Do you really want Landry to kill again?” She also wrote about how she listened to the Newsies soundtrack because they taught her to “always side with labor” from a young age.
