It is indeed a fact that art helps people communicate things. It is profoundly a means of expression, something that equips you with the necessary tools and platform to say what you feel and believe in. Thus, the most remarkable instances of freedom of expression always lead to the most awe-inspiring art. Something that was beautifully achieved by Elliot Page on Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy Season 3.

Page himself went through a big change. The Oscar-nominated actor came out as trans back in 2020; he revealed that his life has changed for the better. However, it is not often that you see these things translate to the screen, which is not what happened in this case. The Netflix series whole-heartedly incorporated this transition onto the show. Elliot Page talked about it all on a recent appearance on “Late Show with Seth Meyers”.

Elliot Page says they’re “excited” for people to see the transition on the show

Earlier this year, the fans of The Umbrella Academy were hit with a surprise when Elliot Page announced that their character Vanya Hargreeves, will return as Viktor. Marking the change they went through themselves in real life, it was indeed wholesome to see the show incorporating it as well. In an appearance on “Late Show with Seth Meyers”, Page talked about the impact it had on his life and work.

“I think it’s made me better in so many facets; as a person, as a friend, in relationships,Page said. They also revealed Steve Blackman, the showrunner for the Netflix Original was really excited about incorporating it into the show. The crew even got a trans author and journalist on board, to help pen the journey of Page’s character.

Thomas Page McBee really helped with tracing the journey of Viktor. “Thomas came on board and helped out, and I feel proud of it and excited for people to see it,” said Elliot Page.

Exclusive: Laura Linney Says “It was all about survival” in a Heartfelt Farewell to the Netflix Classic, Ozark –




Laura Linney Says “It was all about survival” in a Heartfelt Farewell to the Netflix Classic, Ozark

#Laura #Linney #survival #Heartfelt #Farewell #Netflix #Classic #Ozark

The saddest time in any binge watcher’s life comes when their favorite shows come to an end. You sit there looking at the black screen, wondering what to do? Well, we have something for you. One of the most loved shows, Ozark, meets its final season. And we have Laura Linney’s words for you.

Laura Linney bids farewell to Wendy

Has it happened to you that sometimes when you look back at a show, you realize that this was the person who’s been leading the show? And that thought didn’t arise in your mind until now, right? Yes, we are talking about Ozark, and it is one of the most influential characters, Wendy Byrde. Laura Linney has played the role so well that we cannot imagine anyone else doing it better.

It is true that Marty brought the family to the Lake of Ozarks and he tried to save them from the troubles. But it was actually Wendy who was ready to do anything it takes to survive. Wendy went through some major happening events like violence, betrayal, and near-death experiences. Well, these remarkable qualities have made Wendy Ozark’s ruthless character, and Linney the most persuasive actor.

“From day one of the show, it was all about survival. And it was also a group of people, meaning the Byrde family, who really didn’t know each other, and really didn’t know themselves,” says the actor herself.

As the story grew, Linney understood the character so deeply that she could foresee Wendy’s next move; even though she didn’t have a clue about the story. Julia Garner has done the same kind of transformation of the character with her unique technique. Laura, about her character, says that Wendy was very impulsive and that gave her huge flexibility and an idea in which she should behave. She adds that whatever she did wasn’t wrong because “the template was set to hold the logic of whatever happened.” And this part of Wendy’s personality added more to the further season given her past crossed the paths with the narrative. These events from her past serve as emotional landmines, setting off a chain of explosive interactions.

The actor recalls playing Wendy on Ozark

 Laura says that in the final season, she was a little concerned about the intensity of the character. She says that she wanted to maintain the balance which would make the character tangible. “… threading the needle with certain qualities of hers and not tipping too far in one direction or the other,” she explains. Linney further exclaims that she knew very well about this balance and she is hoping that she didn’t overplay or underplayed something.

Laura talks about her experience with the cast and the overall environment of the set. She says that the producer and Jason Bateman wanted her to direct an episode since the beginning of the show. But until the final season, Laura shot an episode and gave her directional debut. Bateman highly praised her directional debut. Although, Laura admitted she was threatened to direct an episode, but she is happy that she did it. It was wild for her to go outside of her comfort zone. But she says that it was a wonderful situation as there were so many people around her, ready to help her.
