Chloë Sevigny Talks About ‘The Dead Don’t Die’ And ‘The Act’

Actress Chloë Sevigny has come a long way since her debut in 1995’s Kids. With numerous accolades to her name, the Massachusetts native still delivers sensational performances. This year, she’ll expand her repertoire with two exciting new roles in film and TV.

It’s A Zombie Party

In an interview with Collider, Sevigny discussed what she has planned for 2019. On June 14, the actress will be a part of the zombie comedy flick The Dead Don’t Die. The film features a robust cast, including Selena Gomez, Bill Murray, and Adam Driver. The forthcoming release is directed by Jim Jarmusch, who has been delivering iconic independent films since 1980. When it comes to his vision, Sevigny believes there’s some realism to the madness.

“He refuses to say that it’s social commentary, but zombie pictures often are, and it’s pretty easy to ascertain what he would be speaking on. There’s an environmental catastrophe that sets this thing off,” said Sevigny to Collider.

Art Imitating Life

Recently, Hulu unveiled a new anthology drama starring Sevigny titled The Act. In the show, she plays Mel, who’s the neighbor of Dee Dee Blanchard. This season is based on the real-life murder of Blanchard by her daughter Gypsy Rose. Sevigny knows how insane sounding true crime shows can be sometimes.

“They say truth is stranger than fiction. I’ve been in numerous shows and/or movies based on real events, and that’s often the case. There are so many details in the real story that you have to pick and choose because it’s just so outrageous. I think that’s why, time and time again, whether it’s true crime or biopics, or whatever it is, we’re constantly taking from life, even in original programming,” she also said in the Collider interview.

The Train Keeps Rolling

If The Dead Don’t Die and The Act isn’t enough, Sevigny has more in store this year. On November 27, she’ll be in the drama thriller Queen & Slim with Daniel Kaluuya and Bokeem Woodbine.

Sevigny is also putting the finishing touches on the film Slow Machine, which was funded on Kickstarter.
