TELL US ABOUT YOUR CHAR­AC­TER, SARA…

She is a fan of Krei­zler’s work and that tells you a lot about her. Krei­zler is an out­cast be­cause his ideas are con­tro­ver­sial but he’s blaz­ing a trail and, as the first woman in the po­lice de­part­ment, Sara has that in com­mon with him be­cause women then had so many restric­tions.

WHAT AP­PEALED TO YOU ABOUT The Alienist?

The fact that we have 10 episodes to tell the story and you can re­ally see th­ese char­ac­ters ebb and flow. It’s a slow build, which makes it more be­liev­able.

BEEN UN­COM­FORT­ABLE FOR YOU TO WEAR…

Well, I fainted in my first fit­ting so that gives you some in­di­ca­tion. But it was ac­tu­ally a priv­i­lege wear­ing those dra­matic sleeves and skirts with small waists and the corsets, be­cause it was an easy way to get into the char­ac­ter.

LIKE THEY MUST

HAVE
