WHO: Kiera Allen
WHAT: While “Sarah Paulson” and “psychological thriller” are two things that always pair well together, I’d like to present you with another good reason to watch Run, Hulu’s buzzy new original film out November 20: Kiera Allen. The newcomer holds her own opposite of Paulson in this twisted mother-daughter story in which she plays Chloe, a wheelchair-bound 17-year-old who, after being isolated from the outside world for most of her life, begins to uncover her mother’s darkest secrets. The film is a captivating two-woman show that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. After this performance, I can’t wait to see what’s next for the budding star.
When I read the script for Run, my first thought was… “Whoa.” Closely followed by “I need to do this.”
I’m particularly proud to be a part of this project because… Of our incredible team: Aneesh Chaganty, Sev Ohanian, Natalie Qasabian, Sarah Paulson, and our entire crew up in Winnipeg. It was truly an honor joining forces with such brilliant, passionate people to make this film.
To work alongside Sarah Paulson was… Just as extraordinary as you’d imagine. More.
One invaluable lesson I learned about acting/the business working on Run was… If you feel embarrassed and intensely vulnerable, you’re probably going in the right direction.
The role I would love to tackle next is… Something I write myself!
The women in this business I look up to most are… My dear friends Sarah Paulson and Natalie Qasabian, and all of the other amazing women I worked with on Run. And beyond that, oh my god, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Audra McDonald, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lulu Wang, Olivia Colman, Céline Sciamma, Ali Stroker, Ava DuVernay, Marielle Heller, Zendaya, the late, great Madeline Kahn… This might be the hardest question I’ve ever gotten!
If you catch me off-duty, chances are I’m wearing… Sweats, if I’m being honest.
When it comes to fashion, I’m a total sucker for… Nerdy T-shirts. Seriously. Show me a top with an obscure Back to the Future reference on it and I am sold.
My fall wardrobe would not be complete without these three pieces…
