We are VERY excited to take a gander at Mz. Chloe Sevigny playing an Irish transgender assassin with family issues in the new British mini-series Hit & Miss!
Lucky for us, Chloe recently dished about the trials and tribulations of being a female actress playing a man who feels and acts like a woman! It’s quite the mind f*ck!
Goodness knows she’s no stranger to provocative roles, and Chloe has previously played a transgender in harrowing drama Boys Don’t Cry, but apparently, the elaborate process of putting on a prosthetic penis for Hit & Miss made Chloe cry every time!
The once-sister wife explains:
"Putting it on took two hours. I shaved myself and they had to glue it on, paint it and pull away the skin to make it seamless. It's a tedious process, and it's hard having someone so close to your private parts for an extended period of time who you're not having sex with. And having it on and looking at yourself is oddly disturbing. I felt like a freak. A lot of transgender people feel like this shouldn't be part of their body, and so I guess it was a good thing. I reacted the way my character would."
Aw girl! No wait! We mean boy ummm… no, no we mean girl!
While we may jest, we can’t even IMAGINE the real emotional trauma transgenders go through on a daily basis.
That helpless feeling of being an alien in your own body, and then trying to become the person you wish to be in a world RIFE with prejudice….
We are SO intrigued to see Chloe take on such an intricate role! And then we get to see her get all sex-crazed in American Horror Story season two!! YAAAAYY!!
