Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?
A. My boyfriend and I went to Nicaragua and it became my favorite destination. We went to a little 12-person boutique hotel. The food was amazing and it wasn’t expensive. You go there and surf your brains out. We just loved it there. The weather was perfect — not too humid, not too dry. You can hike around. It was an adventure. It takes forever to get there, but once you’re there, you don’t want to leave.

What’s your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?
Sadly the generic, whatever-they-give-you landscape of the moon photos. Oh man. Changing them now.?
When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?
The DJ to “give me a beat!”?
What’s the one word you are guilty of using too often?
What is the last thing you searched for on Google?
?Ojai Valley Inn and Spa?.
How did you work out the schedules to do both True Detective and Rectify?
Honestly, I don’t even know how that happened. It was kind of magical. [Executive producer] Nic Pizzolatto offered me the part. He thought of me for it, and he’s good friends with Rectify’s producers. True Detective was so lovely. They were just like, “We’ll make it work. We’ll work around your schedule.” I was like, “Really? Okay!”
Do you know why Nic thought of you?
It’s so funny: He knows me from Burning Love, this [Bachelor parody] show that Ben Stiller produced. Nic loves comedy. It’s kind of a niche to be a superfan of that show.
TheWrap: What was the toughest thing you had to do last season?
Abigail Spencer: There’s a scene in Episode 4 and it’s basically when Amantha — the whole episode feels like one scene — has a whole day where she binge-eats and smokes, like, 23 cigarettes and finds herself in Thrifty Town and asking for a job. There was something about that scene and that episode, I feel all of Amantha, I feel all of it. Her pride, her guilt, her weakness, her strength, I feel all of it.
