Melanie Lynskey

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.
