From calamity to anarchy

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

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.
