On this week’s show, Sam is joined by the great and talented actress Melanie Lynskey. Hailing from New Zealand, Lynskey got her start at 15 in Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures, co-starring a young Kate Winslet. She has since gone on to play roles on everything from Two and a Half Men and Shattered Glass, to Up in the Air and Happy Christmas.
In the episode, Lynskey shares revealing stories from growing up in New Zealand, getting engaged to a man she only knew for three weeks, working with Charlie Sheen and Ed Norton, navigating a career as a character actress, and getting to act in a Steven Soderbergh movie.
