Connie Britton as Dean Walker

Connie Britton is a four-time Emmy nominated actress who continually receives accolades for her work in television and film.

After stand-out roles on series such as Spin City, 24 and The West Wing, she starred in one of the best reviewed shows on television, NBC’s Friday Night Lights created by Peter Berg, for which she received an Emmy nomination in 2010 and then again in 2011.

Britton returned to the small screen fall of 2012 starring in ABC’s Nashville, in which she played Rayna James, a legendary country music superstar, earning Britton her first Golden Globe nomination and forth Emmy nomination. Britton also starred as the female lead in the first season of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s Golden Globe- and Emmy-nominated series for FX for which she also received another Emmy nomination.

She teamed up with Murphy again in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson for FX, in which she played Faye Resnick, and most recently for Murphy’s new FOX procedural first-responder drama, 9-1-1, alongside Angela Bassett and Peter Krause.

Britton most recently starred in the first season of Bravo Media’s scripted anthology series Dirty John, based on the articles and breakout true crime podcast of the same name from Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard. She played Debra Newell, a successful interior designer and single mom from Orange County who falls in love with John Meehan, a charismatic and mysterious man who first divides then terrorizes her family. She also served as an executive producer and has earned Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice nominations for her portrayal of Debra. Britton also guest starred in Frankie Shaw’s Golden-Globe nominated comedy SMILF for Showtime.

In film, Britton most recently completed production on Good Joe Bell, in which she stars alongside Mark Wahlberg, and on Bombshell, in which she stars as Beth Ailes, the wife of media mogul Roger Ailes, played by John Lithgow.

Writer / Director Emerald Fennell on Bo Burnham: “His normality and charm and the kind of life that he offers Cassie is so beguiling, obviously, we needed somebody really deeply charming and charismatic to play Ryan.”

“I really wanted to write a film about female revenge,” says Writer / Director Emerald Fennell.

"Generally, how I approach everything, is if I could imagine someone else playing the part and be all right with it, then I tend to not do it," Carey Mulligan says of her character in Emerald Fennell.

I just ordered a knitting set from Amazon so I could learn to knit. I went: ‘This is the time.’” Here, Mulligan poses for a special digital cover for the May issue of #Vogue, in which she was interviewed by #MargotRobbie about a new movie they worked on together called #PromisingYoungWoman.

social | @variety At the first test screening for #PromisingYoungWoman, writer-director Emerald Fennell wanted to sit in the back so she could gauge the audience’s reaction. When the lights went down, she was stricken with terror. “I thought, ‘No, oh, my gosh, what if everyone hates it?’” she remembers. “This is a nightmare!”⁠ ⁠ And so it was. During the film’s surprising and brutal climax, two audience members entered into a shouting match, with one of them yelling, “If you don’t like it, you don’t have to stay!” The other walked out. “That’s not what you necessarily want from your first test screening,” Fennell says.⁠ ⁠ At the link in bio, Fennell and her leading lady Carey Mulligan sit down to explain how they made the most audacious, feminist, movie of the year. ⁠ ⁠ 📸: @zoemcconnell⁠ ✍: Kate Aurthur and Matt Donnelly ⁠ ⁠ -----------------------------------⁠ ⁠ Carey Mulligan ⁠ styling: Nicky Yates⁠ makeup: Jo Baker⁠ hair: Halley Briske⁠ fashion: Galvan, Jimmy Choo⁠ jewelry: Sophie Billie Brahe⁠ ⁠ Emerald Fennell⁠ styling: Colomba Giacomini⁠ makeup: Lucy Wearin⁠g hair: Hair by Bjorn Krischker/ORIBE/frankagency⁠ fashion: Roland Mouret, Malone Souliers⁠

@promisingyoungwoman

“I think people are looking to see female characters do more than just answer a phone or look sexy in a bikini, so really, whether it’s an amazing assassin or a young woman who is trying to rectify something in her past, I think generally speaking, there is still regrettably a dearth of great stuff for women to do. So yeah, I think that’s what it is.” – Director #EmeraldFennell on writing strong female stories that resonate with audiences. ➡ for more #PromisingYoungWoman #Sundance portraits from @whowhatwear.-📸: @emilysotoThe Who What Wear x Free People Lounge
