An actress who is on the ascendancy when it comes to her career in the entertainment industry is Carrie Coon. Indeed, she garnered praise for her role in the critically acclaimed HBO television show The Leftovers and was a big part of Season 3 of Fargo. In recent years, she has also started to make a major mark in the film industry with roles in movies such as Gone Girl, The Post and Avengers: Infinity War.
Carrie Coon is currently starring alongside Bill Pullman in The Sinner and she recently spoke to Variety about various aspects of the TV show. One of the things that was discussed was the factor which influenced her to become a part of the cast:
“I was just postpartum when [my husband] Tracy [Letts] got the call to play Jack, and it was probably about a week or two weeks later that I got the call to play Vera. Tracy had already decided to say yes because he’s worked with [executive producer] Antonio Campos before and he was very impressed by Derek’s presentation when they had a phone call about the show. And we really loved Season 1.”
“We just thought it was really smart and some of the character work and the choices that weren’t necessarily plot-driven. And the idea that it was a whydunnit, it was a bit of a twist on the genre. So I said, what the heck, we’re all going to go to New York together! I thought it was I going to come to New York and hang out with my baby and see all of our friends. And as it turns out, I worked 14-hour days. Not the summer I was expecting.”
