Speaking at the Television Critics Association day for the third season of Fargo yesterday, Mary spoke with Syfy Wire where she said she’d love to step into her character’s shoes Michelle from 10 Cloverfield Lane:
“I know that Dan and I would love to continue that story,” she said with enthusiasm. “The anthology series is where they are going with it, so whether or not that ever comes back to Michelle’s story, I’m not sure. But I know Dan always had more in mind, so I would love the opportunity to explore that. If anybody would every let us do that, we would jump on it.”
In the same interview, she revealed that what draws her to projects lately are the story and character and the creative minds behind project. Right now is such an exciting time because there is so much incredible material in TV, and so many visionaries in TV like Noah (Hawley). I feel like I have been incredibly lucky the last few years to work with some of those people. Sometimes, you want to go off and experiment and do weird things but for the most part I want to stick with people who are really talented.”
Also during the TCA panel, Mary shared her thoughts on why BrainDead was cancelled, saying it was because the show didn’t quite fit into the audience with CBS but applauded the network for giving them a chance.
