Camille (Amy Adams) searches for clues at the funeral and wake for Wind Gap’s latest victim, and clashes with her mother (Patricia Clarkson) over Camille’s presence in the town. Richard (Chris Messina) finds a surprising way to arrive at a conclusion about the murderer’s profile. Camille pays a visit to the working-class home of a young boy (Matty Evers) who says he witnessed the abduction, and confronts Chief Vickery (Matt Craven) about why he ignored the boy’s claim.
Q) How was Jackie in “Sharp Objects” originally described to you?
A) She was described to me as a “backwoods Barbie” who grew up with Adora (Patricia Clarkson) and has been through the years best friends, enemies and frenemies, but inexplicably bound to each other because Jackie knows everything that goes on in that house. I thought, “Well, that’s interesting. Okay…” If you’ve read the book, when I say “everything that goes on in the house” you know what I mean. Why Jackie doesn’t reveal things or secrets is a whole other story that is not really fleshed out in this series. There is some kind of hold Adora has over her, which doesn’t allow her to speak her truth until very close to the end. Jackie is an alcoholic, so things come out that she can’t keep inside anymore. I think Adora, the daughter Jackie had, I don’t think Jackie had much of a life and sort of looks at Adora’s life upon the hill with the beautiful clothing, the beautiful house and the third husband – that’s all things that Jackie will never have. I think that she’s particularly in love with Camille (Amy Adams) and maybe that’s the reason she didn’t end up getting out when Camille’s sister did not.
Q) Was it difficult then for you to get into character?
A) One of the great things about this particular group of people because you have a chance to work with people like Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson. That’s a formidable duo on its own, but you put in Gillian Flynn and Marti Noxon and Eliza Scanlen (the female centricity o the entire project) and what ever you have to “go through” while you’re shooting is completely worth it. It was a rough shoot because it was hot. We were in Georgia and you’re in the woods where it was a hundred degrees. All the sweat that you see on the actors, that was real. [laughs] It was a long shoot, we were tired, and it was dark. It was difficult for Amy to inhabit that troubled a person, but we all struggled, and we were all aware that we were inhabiting troubled people. We had a conversation about it. It was hard to embrace Jackie and it was hard to live with Jackie. Continue Reading

What were some of your early goals during your days as a stage actor?
At that point you’re just thrilled you’re paying the rent. You think to yourself, “I’ve got an apartment and I paid the rent through my acting.” You don’t think — I didn’t think, anyway — “What am I going to be doing 10 years from now?” I remember just thinking, “How long does it take me to get to the theater from my house, and can I walk or should I take the bus?” Being able to write a check and support myself through only being an actor was pretty much the only goal I had at that point. It never occurred to me that I would ever do film or television.
What was your first day as a film actress like?
I got into a car accident on the way to the set, and I was two hours late because the police showed up. But thank God our director was quite kind to me about it. The very first shot that we did was a scene that never made it to the film, where my character has sex with Jim Belushi in the back seat of a car.
I remember thinking as it was happening, “This can’t be moviemaking; there’s got to be more to it than this.” I’m literally in the back seat of a car with Jim Belushi, and we’re having fake sex, and I’m having to moan and scream after having a car accident on the way to work. So, it wasn’t great. Continue Reading
