Next Monday, June 7th I’ll be returning to the frontlines of the fight to #StopLine3. This time I’ll be bringing @rosannaarquette@tayjschilling and #CatherineKeenerwith me to stand in solidarity with the water protectors and tell the world that the days of tar sands pipelines are over. We will not stand by and watch a fossil fuel corporation line its pockets as so much is destroyed, producing oil we don’t need. Please join us! Link in bio to learn more.
Jane Fonda: Me and my friends Catherine Keener, Rosanna Arquette, Taylor Schilling, Barbara Williams and her son Liam Hayden are all going to join the big Treaty People Gathering in Northern Minnesota to protest the Enbridge Line 3 which threatens to bring tar sands oil from Canada into Minnesota under 200 bodies of pristine water. Please visit https://treatypeoplegathering.com for information on how to participate in person or from afar. You can also help by forwarding the information to your own networks of family and friends and on social media. #StopLine3
Taylor Schilling says she had fun exploring her dominatrix character, Lily. She says she learned through her research that “female doms are master boundary creators, and that’s very different” than who she is.
Monsters and Critics:This is reminiscent of the Kings series BrainDead. Were you aware of them? Did you know their writing?
Taylor Schilling: The Good Wife and The Good Fight are iconic shows, so I definitely was aware of their writing. I’ve heard other people refer to BrainDead when discussing this show and I’ve never seen it, so I’m not super familiar with that, but I do know that they have an interest in zombies and monsters. They have that side to them.
