From calamity to anarchy
ONE of the really great performances of the last 10 years was Robin Weigert’s as Calamity Jane in Deadwood. She’s back among roughhewn men on FX’s Sons of Anarchy. Weigert says she finds herself in a transitional period. ‘‘It used to be that my favourite, favourite, favourite thing – and Deadwood was an example of it, was to totally vanish from view and just become somebody totally unrecognisable. And I’m still in love with that. I’m still in love with sort of disappearing into a role, but I’m ever more interested in the reveal aspect of it, as well, kind of like letting private colours and emotions and feelings and textures of subtler things shine through and let the audience track you.’’
Sons of Anarchy: Wednesday, 5.30pm, 8.30pm, Showcase; Wednesdays, 8.30pm, One.
