Max Berlinger writes: "When news broke last summer that Sevigny would be taking on a role as a pre-operative transsexual hit man in the British series Hit & Miss, the Internet crackled with snark, chalking the project up as yet another eccentric outing."
“Who doesn’t love a challenge?” Sevigny says of the show, which premiered on the U.K. channel Sky Atlantic in May. “My manager called me and said, ‘I got some scripts today, and they’re fucking crazy. I’ve never read anything like them, and I kinda think you’re going to be into it,’ ” she says with a laugh. “A little way into reading the first script, I knew I was in.”
The role required Sevigny to take part in firearms training, accent coaching, kickboxing lessons, and a six-month sabbatical in Manchester, England, far from her usual East Village environs. But those weren’t the things that troubled her.
“Being around the men on set, being naked, and having that on, I just felt insecure and uncomfortable. Plus the process to put it on was very involved. I had to shave myself, it’s glued on, painted, like any prosthetic. It’s not fun to have someone right up in your private parts,” she deadpans before letting out her hooting laugh, a signature Chloë-ism.
“Hollywood does not know what to do with me,” Sevigny says. “They do not like me. That’s why I end up in these seemingly difficult movies. That’s what is offered to me, and I need to make a living.”
