Mackenzie Davis

This week on Talk Easy, emerging actress Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire) joins Sam to talk about…well, yeah, the election. At least for a little bit. After working through some grief and trying to find a way forward, they discuss Mackenzie’s work in films like What If, The Martian, and This Awkward Moment. They also dive into her early twenties, managing friendships, and, everyone’s favorite subject, death, prompted by her great episode in Black Mirror.
