Mercy Street premieres THIS Sunday on PBS following Downton Abbey, and The Huffington Post caught up with Mary and two of her co-stars, Josh Radnor and Norbert Leo Butz to talk about the upcoming historical drama. All of the actors agreed though, they all signed up for the show because of how great the story was.
Here’s what Mary had to share:
“You have Union and Confederate characters together,” says Winstead, who plays Mary Phinney, a high-minded abolitionist nurse from Boston. “Mary wants to help people. But she immediately falls into a great sense of confusion by what she finds in this hospital. She’s thrown off her game.”
