Chatting With Aunjanue Ellis on Playing a Villain

Aunjanue Ellis

By// S. Tia Brown

How was it playing an evildoer?

It’s easy to go into a film like this and assume there’s a stark contrast between who’s perceived as the villain and the victim. But I hope people walk away not knowing who to sympathize with.

What piqued your interest the most about this role?

My character was a woman in very real pain. Even though her reasoning was skewed, and she did a really horrendous thing, she loved Carlina. But she acted out and did something that injured a whole bunch of people.
