If you like to keep up with the most promising rising stars, Thomasin McKenzie better be on your list. She “broke out” with her stellar performance opposite Ben Foster in 2018’s Leave No Trace and hasn’t stopped delivering especially big since. She starred in the Academy Award winning film Jojo Rabbit, was at the heart of a mighty impressive ensemble in Old, she’s in Jane Campion's upcoming awards season contender The Power of the Dog, and also headlines one of my personal favorite films of the year, Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho. McKenzie plays Eloise in the psychological thriller. She dreams of becoming a fashion designer and is thrilled to get the opportunity to study her craft in school in London. She moves to the big city to start her future, but finds herself caught up in the past. Ellie has the ability to connect to the 1960s, and more specifically to Anya Taylor-Joy’s Sandie, an aspiring star looking for her big break. Ellie is enamored and inspired by Sandie, but soon comes to realize there are some extremely dark sides to Sandie's seemingly dreamy 1960s existence. With Last Night in Soho now in theaters, McKenzie joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to retrace her steps in the industry thus far. We discussed one of her very first films, what it was like breaking out with Leave No Trace, working with Wright on Last Night in Soho and so much more. Enjoy! Learn more about your ad choices.

    Yellowjackets Star Melanie Lynskey Talks Working with Sophie Nélisse, Secrecy and Spoilers

    50:30

    You don’t get better than the casting of Showtime’s Yellowjackets. The series takes place in 1996 and 2021, following what happens when a high school girls soccer team’s plane crashes on the way to nationals and they’re forced to do whatever it takes to survive out in the wilderness for 19 months. Then, the 2021 material shows how the survivors are coping with what they’ve done as they try to outrun a tragedy that’s seemingly always on the verge of consuming them all over again. In celebration of Yellowjackets’ phenomenal Season 1 run on Showtime, Melanie Lynskey joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night. Yes, much of the focus was on Yellowjackets, but that's just one of many stellar titles on Lynskey’s filmography. In addition to discussing working on Season 1 and some Yellowjackets spoilers, Lynskey revisited working on Heavenly Creatures, collaborating with Steven Soderbergh, how Miranda Harcourt changed the game for her career and so much more!

    Scream 5 Star Melissa Barrera Details Her Journey from Telenovelas to Woodsboro

    25:54

    Melissa Barrera is taking over. She made a huge impression in the Starz series, Vida, but her star soared especially high in 2021 with the release of Jon M. Chu’s electric adaptation of In the Heights. Now the trend continues via a headlining role in the new Scream movie. Barrera joins the iconic slasher franchise as Samantha Carpenter, a former Woodsboro resident who returns home when she finds out her sister’s been attacked by Ghostface. Along the way, Sam crosses paths with the Scream series big three, Neve Campbell’s Sidney, Courteney Cox’s Gale and David Arquette’s Dewey. While it may seem as though Barrera’s a fairly new rising star in Hollywood, she’s been mighty busy in this industry for quite some time now and a Collider Ladies Night interview gave us the opportunity to revisit some of those other experiences that paved the way to Scream 2022.  Check out what Barrera had to say about her earliest dream of becoming a pop star, the invaluable lessons she learned from telenovelas, how she'd rank the first four Scream movies and more in this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

    Cobra Kai Season 4 Interview: Peyton List Revisits Her Journey from Disney Channel to Netflix

    43:22

    The entire Cobra Kai ensemble shines every single season, but there’s no denying that Peyton List is a major standout as Tory in Season 4. When we first met the character in Season 2, Tory joins Cobra Kai and develops an intense rivalry with Samantha LaRusso (Mary Mouser). And who can blame her? Accusing Tory of stealing her mother’s wallet wasn’t really an ideal first encounter. Things continue to escalate between the two when Tory strikes up a relationship with Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) only to spot him rekindling his romance with Sam shortly after.  While the school brawl at the end of Season 2 might have seemed to be the peak of this conflict, things only intensify in Season 3 with Sam struggling to cope with the extremely violent nature of the fight and Tory taking advantage of Sam’s state every chance she gets. Ultimately though, Sam manages to stand up to Tory in the Season 3 finale and best her during the fight in the LaRusso home. Would that incident put Tory on an even darker path? Is she so consumed by rage that she’ll never be able to find her way back? With Cobra Kai Season 4 now available to stream on Netflix, List took the time to join us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night and we dug deep into Tory’s evolution throughout the series. But, as with all episodes of Ladies Night, we also went way back to List’s pre-Cobra Kai days to get a better sense of the steps she took in order to hone her craft to deliver this big on the hit Netflix show.  Hear about it all on this episode of Collider Ladies Night!

    Mackenzie Davis Career Interview: From Breathe In to HBO Max's Station Eleven

    46:32

    Mackenzie Davis has been a favorite for a good while now, but it’s especially exciting to see her filmography continue to grow with such a wide variety of projects, working with some of the most striking voices in the industry. Now that resume grows with HBO Max’s extremely stirring adaption of Emily St. John Mandel’s novel, Station Eleven, from showrunner Patrick Somerville with episodes directed by Hiro Murai, Jeremy Podeswa, Helen Shaver and Lucy Tcherniak. The story begins with the world on the cusp of a significant flu outbreak. The pandemic devastates civilization, completely obliterating the technology we rely on and our way of life in general. Twenty years in the future, Davis’ character, Kirsten, is part of the Traveling Symphony, a group of actors and musicians who travel the region performing Shakespeare for various communities. Even though the group seems to have found great purpose in this new world, an unexpected encounter challenges them to reconsider what to hold onto from the path and how best to create a new future. With Station Eleven in the midst of its rollout on HBO Max, Davis joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to talk about the mini-series and also to revisit the path she took to get there. Hear all about Davis' experience booking Drake Doremus' Breathe In, working with Ridley Scott on The Martian, making Station Eleven and so much more in this interview!

    The Witcher Interview: Anya Chalotra Recalls the Day on Set She Thought "I Can’t Do This"

    21:29

    No, Yennefer didn’t have peak confidence all throughout Season 1 of The Witcher, but Anya Chalotra seemed to be oozing with it while playing the character. However, while on an episode of Collider Ladies Night in celebration of the launch of Season 2 of the hit Netflix series, Chalotra admitted that wasn’t really the case. In fact, there was a point during the filming of Season 1 when she had to call a mentor for help.  For about half of the season, Yennefer is a young woman struggling with a curved spine and facial paralysis who’s often ridiculed. When it’s discovered that Yennefer has magical abilities, she’s taken to Aretuza to study to become a mage. After much struggle, Yennefer not only ascends but also insists that the Aretuza enchanter change her physical differences. He does and she’s reborn, stepping back out into the world buzzing with power and confidence. Prior to The Witcher, Chalotra’s screen credits were limited to the drama series Wanderlust and the BBC One mystery mini series The ABC Murders. The Witcher was on another level. During our Ladies Night chat, Chalotra highlighted one key piece of advice she received when making the leap to such a substantial production. Hear all about that, what it was like filming Yen's most pivotal scenes of the new season and so much more on this episode of Collider Ladies Night! Learn more about your ad choices.

    Janina Gavankar on Getting Her Start in Barbershop and Swinging Big as Ren on Big Sky

    48:22

    I was already a big believer that Janina Gavankar is a wildly talented individual that this industry needs more of, but after our 50-minute Collider Ladies Night chat, I’ve also come to the conclusion that she can (and should) do just about anything. At the moment, Gavankar is making the most of a downright delicious role in Big Sky Season 2. The search for Ronald Pergman (Brian Geraghty) is still ongoing, but Jenny (Katheryn Winnick) and Cassie (Kylie Bunbury) also get caught up in a case that involves some missing drugs and a whole lot of money. That’s where Gavankar’s Ren comes in. She’s part of the crime family tied to the drugs and money, and is sent to Helena to investigate.  With Big Sky celebrating its winter finale, Gavankar took some time to join us for an extended Collider Ladies Night conversation — but it still wasn’t enough! She’s a creator with an especially high drive and wide range of passions, making it impossible to cover it all in one episode. Not only is Gavankar part of quite a few pop culture phenomena including Star Wars, True Blood and Arrow, but she’s also a passionate gamer, a trained musician and someone with a whole slew of stories involving unforgettable collaborations that turned into lasting friendships.

    Rose McIver on "Breaking Out" with Lovely Bones and the CBS Smash Ghosts

    42:52

    Even as someone who needs the horror genre 365 days a year, I still have that increased itch for fun-loving, feel-good fare during the holiday season. This year, one of the biggest delights paving the way to the holidays and spreading good vibes every step of the way is the new CBS sitcom, Ghosts.  Inspired by the British series of the same name, the CBS show stars Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar as Samantha and Jay, a couple who opt to leave their city life behind when they inherit an old country estate, hoping to renovate the place and turn it into a bed and breakfast. However, much to their surprise, soon after moving in, they come to learn that the house is actually occupied — by ghosts. And much to the ghosts’ surprise, they discover that Samantha is the first living person they’ve ever met who can actually see and hear them. With Ghosts currently powering through its first season, McIver joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night. As always, we did focus a good deal on her latest accomplishment, but also took the time to look back and revisit her most pivotal moments and discussed how they influenced her career path and her craft moving forward. Check out what she had to say about Xena: Warrior Princess, Power Rangers RPM, The Lovely Bones, Once Upon a Time, Ghosts, and more on this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

    Rosamund Pike Interview: How Gone Girl "Let Out the Crazy" and Why She Needed Wheel of Time's Moiraine Right Now

    25:51

    Rosamund Pike has accomplished quite a bit over the years. She joined the James Bond film franchise, was nominated for an Academy Award for her work in Gone Girl, scored the Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for her performance in State of the Union, delivered exceptional work in Hostiles, A Private War, I Care a lot and so much more. But even with all of that, Amazon’s The Wheel of Time marks a major first for Pike — it’s her very first time leading a live-action series. She stars as Moiraine, a member of the Aes Sedai, a group of women with the ability to wield the “One Power.” Men are forbidden from channeling this magic because all previous attempts have had devastating results. Now, Moiraine is on the hunt for the Dragon Reborn, an extremely powerful individual prophesized to save or destroy the world. She comes to suspect that the Dragon Reborn is one of five people living in the small town of Two Rivers - Rand al'Thor (Josha Stradowski), Perrin Aybara (Marcus Rutherford), Egwene al'Vere (Madeleine Madden), Mat Cauthon (Barney Harris) or Nynaeve al'Meara (Zoë Robins). The first season covers Moiraine’s attempt to lead them on a treacherous trek back to the Aes Sedai home base, the White Tower in Tar Valon. With the first three episodes of The Wheel of Time now available to watch, Pike joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to celebrate the show and to revisit her journey from first getting discovered at the National Youth Theatre to headlining a blockbuster-level Amazon series.  Check out was Pike had to say about Die Another Day, Gone Girl, Doom, The Wheel of Time and so much more on this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

    Mckenna Grace Interview: How She Accomplished So Much at Just 15-Years-Old

    28:44

    Mckenna Grace is 15-years-old and already has dozens of credits and an Emmy nomination to her name. She broke out big starring opposite Chris Evans in Gifted, joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe playing a young Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, is featured in the downright stellar Haunting of Hill House on Netflix, delivers a truly jaw-dropping performance in The Handmaid’s Tale and now she’s a key part of the future of the Ghostbusters franchise. Grace plays Phoebe in Ghostbusters: Afterlife. When her family is forced to move to Summerville, Oklahoma and into a creepy old farmhouse her grandfather left them, Phoebe comes to learn that he has quite the legacy. Her grandfather was a Ghostbuster. When Phoebe and her brother Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) come to learn what he was busy doing out there in Summerville, it becomes their responsibility to use the tools he left behind to help save the world. Having someone like Grace on Collider Ladies Night is a blessing and a curse. As you’ll hear in the video at the top of this article, I’m a big believer she’s one of the most talented actors in the business. Having the opportunity to discuss how she first discovered her passion for acting, how she scored her first Hollywood gigs, what it was like collaborating with other next-level creators like Octavia Spencer, Mike Flanagan, James Wan and more was the ultimate treat. The curse? Even with an extended interview slot, there isn’t nearly enough time to highlight all of Grace’s accomplishments. We did get to a whole bunch of them though! Check out this edition of Collider Ladies Night to hear all about Grace's experience on Gifted, The Haunting of Hill House, The Handmaid's Tale, her love of skating, working on Ghostbusters: Afterlife and so much more.
