Mary Discusses Fargo with the Observer

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.”
