Variety Interview: Elizabeth Perkins on Her Early Film, & Stage Role!

Monday, Jul 16, 2018

Elizabeth Perkins has starred in numerous comedies and dramas, receiving critical acclaim for her roles in such films as “Avalon,” “Miracle on 34th Street,” the live-action “Flintstones” movie and “The Doctor.” Elizabeth Perkins has also found success on television, garnering Golden Globe Award nominations for her supporting role in “Weeds.” She continues to make guest appearances on several hit shows, including “How to Get Away With Murder,” “GLOW” and “This Is Us.” She’s co-starring in the HBO miniseries “Sharp Objects.”

Early in her career, Elizabeth Perkins worked on many stage productions in New York City, including the show “Life and Limb.” Her first appearance in Variety came on Jan. 2, 1985, in the cast credits of the show.

What were some of your early goals during your days as a stage actor?

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.

Sounds abrupt.

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 Variety Interview: Elizabeth Perkins on Her Early Film, & Stage Role!

Camille Preaker (Amy Adams), a reporter for the St. Louis Chronicle, is sent to her rural hometown of Wind Gap by her editor, Curry (Miguel Sandoval), to file a story about two missing girls, one of whom was found dead and presumed murdered. The assignment, which reunites Camille with her overbearing mother, Adora (Patricia Clarkson), stepfather, Alan Crellin (Henry Czerny), and half-sister, Amma (Eliza Scanlen), brings back traumatic childhood memories, including the death of Camille’s younger sister, Marian (Lulu Wilson), when both were schoolgirls. Tormented by her past and seeking refuge through alcohol, Camille joins Detective Richard Willis (Chris Messina) and Chief of Police Vickery (Matt Craven) in following leads around town that might shed light on the fate of the most recent missing girl.
