Jemima interviewed by Playboy

Jemima interviewed by Playboy

A new interesting interview by Playboy magazine was published on September 21st, in which Jemima talks about the risk of being typecast and the new series Maniac.

They also released one more photo from Maniac so that one can be found in the gallery and you can read full interview in the press archive!

If you happened to stroll by Jemima Kirke’s Brooklyn stoop sale in April, one of the items in particular might have caught your eye. Among the piles of vintage clothing and the other knickknacks one typically finds at these de-sheddings, was a stack of unopened copies of Girls DVDs, the show she starred on for six seasons. “People were actually buying them, and nobody realized I was the one selling them,” Kirke tells Playboy. Now, maybe she was just doing some spring-cleaning—because stars, they’re just like us—or maybe it was something more.

Throughout her half-decade run as Jessa Johansson—the deeply flawed but oddly likable millennial on HBO’s Emmy-winning coming-of-age series—the London-born, New York-based actress tried her best to extract herself from her polarizing on-screen persona. “I have had moments like Jessa, for sure,” she told Huffington Post in 2012. “I keep saying this—I just can’t stress this enough—this is an impression for me, in many ways. I know acting is not impersonating, but I’m good with impressions.”

That Kirke tried to make that distinction early on should come as no surprise. If Girls was a window into the no-strings-attached hookup culture of twentysomething New York City, then Jessa was its poster child. But when Kirke agreed to be in her friend Lena Dunham’s pilot in 2011, she was a married 24-year-old who had just given birth to her first daughter. Her days as a rebellious, hard-partying New York scenester—she first went to rehab when she was 19—were firmly behind her.

First Look at “Maniac”

Cary Fukunaga, Emma Stone, and Jonah Hill have been working on a Netflix series that looks trippier than your freshman year of college. Per Netflix, “Maniac is the story of two strangers who find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry.” The ten-episode show is based on a 2014 Norwegian satire series, and is Fukunaga’s first directing gig since Beasts of No Nation for Netflix. Sally Field, Justin Theroux, Julia Garner, and Jemima Kirke also star in the black comedy.

See the first-look photos at Vulture’s website, unfortunately wasn’t there any photos with Jemima.
