Carrie Coon Reflects on Her Emmy Nomination and a Crazy Five Years

You wouldn‘t exactly want to call Carrie Coon an overnight success. It’s been nearly 10 years since she made her debut on the Chicago stage, and nearly five since she earned a Tony nomination for her role in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? But she’s also enjoyed what seems like an utterly charmed Hollywood career, from her screen debut in 2014’s Gone Girl to her Emmy-nominated turn in Fargo, which aired simultaneously with the acclaimed third season of The Leftovers in which many critics argued she’d emerged as the series’ true star. No wonder, as Joanna Robinson wrote last month, prestige TV has been “Carried away.“

On this week’s Little Gold Men podcast, Richard Lawson talks to Coon about her journey from the Midwest to Hollywood, about being cast in Virginia Woolf (the play that “changed my entire life, utterly,“ including introducing her to husband Tracy Letts), and what happened when her big breaks on Gone Girl and The Leftovers happened almost simultaneously. “I feel that it’s only now in my life when I’m looking back and saying what an astonishing whirlwind that was. It feels like a cautionary tale. I want to say to young actors, it doesn’t normally happen like this!“

Also on this week’s episode, conversations about new releases The Glass Castle and Ingrid Goes West, plus some hopeful Oscar buzz based on the trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s thriller Mother!
