New interview of Taylor Schilling with Decider

Here’s the second part of Taylor Schilling’s interview with Decider

In Pam & Tommy Episode 7, Erica finally discovers that her ex-husband was the person who stole and shared the tape. Her reaction is to immediately condemn him for his crime. Schilling told Decider that this scene was “the lynchpin” for why she wanted to work on Pam & Tommy and why she loved Erica.

“She’s small, but mighty,” Schilling said. “It is Pam and Tommy’s story, but the way that Erica can highlight and hold a mirror and amplify what’s going on or amplify the way that Pam was exploited is because she’s a sex worker who has made the decision with her own agency in a very autonomous way and is living life the way she choses. She’s a well-adjusted successful adult actress. And because of that she’s able to say, ‘What I do is pornography. What I do involves consent forms and salary.
