The Observer caught up with Mary last week while she was in New York and one of the things they discussed was filming that epic scene in the woods for 3×08 of Fargo with her co-star Russell Harvard. You can read her full interview by clicking the link above:
“By the end of it, he and I had our own kind of communication that was just ours,” Winstead said of the grueling shoot alongside Harvard. The actor, like his on-screen counterpart, is deaf. “Obviously, I don’t speak sign language, but I was able to pick up some things from him. Then, beyond that, we were wordlessly communicating the entire time time, helping him to know what was going on. When we were going to say ‘action’ or ‘cut’ we had signals for each other for all those things. “It was so worth it, for such an incredible, epic sequence,” she said. “It became a really special friendship for everyone involved.”
Mary also revealed to The Wrap that she was the one really driving the truck in tonight’s episode (3×09) and why she loves playing the role of Nikki Swango:
“She’s so not polite. She’s so not Minnesota nice. She’s very brash and bold and in your face … It just feels so much more like she’s in her body and not sort of pretending to be something other than what she is. So many characters on ‘Fargo’ tend to get into that territory where they’re being so nice even though they’ve got these dark, sinister things going on.”

Earlier this week, Mary dropped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk about her show, Fargo. You can watch the full interview with Mary over on the NBC website at the 25:33 mark, or simply view a clip of her talking about how she tried to learn bridge.
Paige also added more photos of Mary’s first appearance on the show from last year into the gallery here.
Yesterday in New York, Mary stopped by AOL’s Build Series to discuss the current season of Fargo. I’ve added over 60 photos of her while being interviewed as well as photo shoot pictures of her. You can watch the full 30 minute interview below:
Mary is gearing up to promote Fargo this week in New York, stopping by the AOL Build Series on Thursday as well as Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday. Before doing so, Mary’s first night in NY was spent attending the CFDA’s Fashion Awards, where she arrived with designer Lela Rose. I’ve added HQs of Mary at the event, and will hopefully be adding more soon. Enjoy!
Last week, Mary attended Gold Derby’s Emmy Season Kickoff Party with her Fargo co-star Olivia Sandoval. You can head to the gallery to check out the new pics, and if you missed her interview with Gold Derby from last month, you can watch it below.
Paige has screen capped Mary’s scenes in episode 3×07 of FX’s Fargo. There’s only 3 episodes remaining this season. How crazy is that?! Below are the caps, as well as a behind the scenes video from the episode where the actors talk about how technology is taking over in the 2010 setting and a preview for next week’s episode, airing on June 7.
On April 30th at THR‘s mammoth photo shoot, several actors and actresses working this Emmy season all gathered together at the annual photo shoot to ready themselves for the upcoming award show, but not before they revealed the television family they related to growing up.
Mary’s response was “My So-Called Life because it felt like a very real family. And I wanted to be Claire Danes on that show.”
I’ve added Mary’s photos to the gallery as well as a behind the scenes video of the stars playing a game of ‘Never Have I Ever’.
A few weeks ago in May, Mary had stopped by the L.A. Times offices to promote season 3 of Fargo (which you can view here), and now thanks to Paige, we have even more beautiful photos of Mary while she was there. Check them out in the gallery.
I’ve also added a new still of Mary from the show as well:
We all know Mary is incredibly talented, but I’m so proud of her work on this show. She’s been amazing and absolutely killing it this season!
