Rachel Talks “True Detective” Episode 4 With Variety

Rachel recently spoke to Variety during the “Southpaw” press junket and she also discussed Sunday’s episode of “True Detective“. The full interview can be found in our press archive and an excerpt below. It’s a discussion of one of the major scenes of Sunday’s episode, so be aware of spoilers if you haven’t watched it yet.

HBO’s crime drama “True Detective” has now become famous for its intense action scenes, with the bloody shootout involving Rachel McAdams’ SWAT officer Ani Bezzerides in Sunday’s episode being no exception.

“That one took about five days,” the actress told Variety while promoting her drama “Southpaw.” “That was pretty intense. I actually puked during that scene. When I was running and reloading my gun — it actually wound up being about 200 yards, it was like two football fields — and I was just going all out and we did it a couple of times.”
