Carrie Coon: ‘Acting is very much rooted in language’

Carrie Coon has been surprising us with her acting chops for a long time – ever since she suddenly appeared in Gone Girl as the sister of Ben Affleck in 2014, and at the same time became a key part of the success of The Leftovers, in which she played a woman who had lost her whole family in a strange global event. She had been preparing for a long time in the theater for that big debut on the screen: she received a nomination for a Tony for her work on Broadway in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? where she also met her husband, Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts.
