MT: What inspired you to take on the role of Gena in “True Detective”?
AS: I’d auditioned for Nic Pizzolatto, the creator of the show, a few times previously. We happened to run into each other and we just ended up hanging out. We’re both southern folks and had a lot to talk about. The next day he offered me the part!

MT: Gena’s scenes with Ray are incredibly heartbreaking and emotional. How did you prepare before filming?
AS: Sadly, my life has prepared me for this role. I’ve been through a divorce and I’ve experienced a lot of loss and pain. Like Gena, I’m a mother. I have a 6-year-old son, Roman. So, it doesn’t take much for me to think about her circumstances…and my body responds.

MT: Are there other ways that you and Gena are alike?
AS: I really like that even though she was a victim of rape, she’s not a victim. Part of her backstory that Nic has is that she helps other rape victims. She’s very willing to use what has happened in her life for the good of others. I respond to that. I don’t allow myself to be debilitated by the negative things that have happened in my life. I use what has happened in my life to enrich my experience and move through the pain. She’s also incredibly loving. She could have tried to get Ray out of her 10-year-old son’s life a long time ago because of his predilections, but the fact that she tried to keep Ray in her son’s life demonstrates a level of empathy that most people don’t have.
