Angeleno Heights — Many fans of the newest version of “A Star Is Born” are wondering where Lady Gaga’s character lives. Karen Murphy, the film’s production designer, provided the answer to Vanity Fair: The character of Ally and her father live on Kensington Road, which arcs thorough Victorian-era neighborhood.
Murphy said she chose it because it “needed to feel like a family lived there but not be a mansion.” She also liked the view. “It’s high, it overlooks downtown Los Angeles, which gives it an interesting outlook from the street, and we were going to utilize the outside as well so we’d see a view.”
Of course, if you analyze it too hard – as film critic Alison Willmore did with her followers on Twitter – the geography of the movie can still run you in circles. Vanity Fair notes that Gaga as well as Andrew Dice Clay, who plays her father, both project a New York vibe.
But then later, why does Gaga’s character have to take a private jet to a show at the Greek Theatre?
It appears that the house (based on these and other photos) is on East Kensington Road, not too far from where the “Fast and Furious” home has become a popular fan destination. Will we soon see “A Star is Born” fans heading to Kensington Road?
