THE
GOSPEL-KEEPER

DAWN GILLIAM
SCRIPT SUPERVISOR
PORTRAIT: ART STREIBER

Dawn Gilliam had been working on Alias for just over a week when the show’s creator called her into his office. “I walked in with a backpack,” she recalls. “I was trying to take it off to, you know, shake his hand. He said, ‘I hear you’re doing great things. You wanna come to Hawaii with me?’ That was it. I didn’t even have time to get my backpack off.” Since Lost, Gilliam has worked alongside the director on all of Bad Robot’s tentpole projects: taking notes, keeping score and ensuring nothing slips through the cracks. She writes comments for the editors, tracks the shots and keeps the continuity straight as an arrow — a not inconsiderable task given Abrams’ often liberal approach to chronology. “There are some people 
who are just note-takers, but I consider myself a filmmaker — I’m totally immersed in the whole process.” She is, in most respects, the director’s ever-present right hand. “We think we’re very important,” she says with a smile. “But behind every great director, there is a great script supervisor.”
