Mary briefly appeared in last week’s season finale of Ewan McGregor’s Apple TV docu-series ‘Long Way Up’. The show follows Ewan McGregor and his friend Charley Boorman as they travel on electric Harley-Davidsons 13,000 miles through Central and South America.
Towards the end of the episode, she met with Ewan as she hopped on the back of a motorcycle for the last couple miles of his trip from Mexico to LA and then congratulated him. I posted clips of Mary’s appearance on my Twitter page and you can view it below. If you want to watch any of the eps, you can do so by visiting the Apple page here.
Ha. Just kidding. Here’s part one of MEW’s appearance in the final ep of #LongWayUp that aired last night on AppleTV. (This was a result of me posting the last 2 minutes or so before running out the door earlier today. Sorry you guys! ?) pic.twitter.com/G7cZtw2iQh

With two weeks to go until the premiere of Netflix’s animated anthology series ‘Love, Death & Robots’, the network has released a brand new NSFW trailer which you can view below. Yesterday, I also posted a clip of Mary in one of the upcoming episodes which you can view here. I also added screencaps of Mary from the trailer below which you can see in the gallery.
Premiering on March 15, the show comes from Tim Miller and David Fincher and will touch on a variety of topics including racism, government, war, free will, and human nature, whittled down from hundreds of authors and stories, many of which were discovered by Miller decades ago. Each 5 to 15-minute-long segment was created by different teams of filmmakers from around the world, including animators from Hungary, France, Canada, and Korea among others.

If you recall, the two worked together in the 2012 social experiment ‘The Beauty Inside’. I’ve posted the clip of Mary’s Love, Death & Robots clip below and if you missed the trailer for the upcoming series, you can see it here. Just remember, it is NSFW.
The full roster of shorts will cover a variety of adult topics including racism, government, war, free will, and human nature. The anthology collection spans the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres and each short has a unique animation style: from traditional 2D to photo-real 3D CGI.

Posted onWritten byJessicaComments Off on Mary Attends the Critics’ Choice Awards
Mary attended her first Critics Choice Awards on Thursday night with the cast of Fargo. While the show itself was nominated as was her costar David Thewlis, Ewan McGregor was the one who picked up the win for his work as Ray/Emmitt Stussy in the ‘BEST ACTOR IN A MOVIE MADE FOR TV OR LIMITED SERIES’ category. Mary was also nominated in the ‘BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A MOVIE MADE FOR TV OR LIMITED SERIES’, but lost out to Laura Dern.
The important thing is that she was nominated and appeared to have a good time. She rocked a pretty pastels Delpozo dress on the blue carpet and went with fellow actor/friend Ben Lewis.
