Mary Attends FX’s FYC Event

Yesterday Mary and her Fargo co-stars Ewan McGregor, Carrie Coon and Olivia Sandoval attended FX’s Emmys For Your Consideration event in North Hollywood. I’ve added over 260 photos, so please enjoy all the pics I’ve added to the gallery!

 

At the event, show creator Noah Hawley said this about Mary’s character Nikki Swango:

“Nikki Swango (Winstead) is the ultimate ‘Fargo’ badass. You don’t know what to expect with her. She’s a bridge mastermind and a strategist. She’s really fun.”

According to Variety, Winstead was thrilled to join the drama and said about Nikki Swango, “I’d never played a character like this. Once I was on set and doing it, it was so easy but it took all the elements coming together for me to feel confident and comfortable.”

New Fargo Interviews

Mary is doing lots of press for Fargo now that the third season has wrapped. Yesterday, Mary did a Q&A for The Los Angeles Times which you can watch here and KPCC’s “The Frame” radio show which you can check out here. I’ve also updated the gallery with a few photos she’s taken during the press tour.

Tonight, they’ll also be an Emmy’s FYC event for the FX show so check back soon for tons of new pics! 🙂

 

THE FRAME Interview highlights:

On why she initially shied away from TV series earlier in her career:

For me, it was really the idea of committing to something for years and years — that you could potentially not love — was very, very scary to me, and I didn’t understand why [laughs]. I was sort of like, I don’t understand why anybody would do that! What if you get into it and then a year later you decide you don’t like it anymore?

But the past few years, as the majority of the good material that I’ve seen has been on television, it’s become really exciting.

How she’d describe Nikki to people who haven’t seen the show:

She’s a competitive bridge player, which I think says a lot about her. [laughs] I mean, ex-con, competitive bridge player speaks volumes. She’s a strategic thinker in every way of her life, she’s always one step of everybody around her. She’s incredibly smart, but she’s also incredibly loving and passionate, and she’s very much in love with her partner, Emmit Stussy, played by Ewan McGregor. She has all these dreams and hopes for their life together, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make those dreams come true.

On her possible entry into musical theater:

There’s been a couple of Broadway shows that I’ve gone down the road with, and then scheduling’s sort of made things fall apart. But I would love to do that eventually. I think that would be the next scary thing for me to tackle. It would be really nerve-wracking, but I’d love to try it.

Mary at the MTV Movie Awards

Mary attended the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday and I’ve added a bunch of new photos of her from the event into the gallery. The first 60 are HQs.

She looks so beautiful!
