We are hoping we will have the coverage up of the finale tomorrow, as usual, but since we are still in the middle of moving our site to a new server it might get delayed a bit.
The magazine scans of Total Film (UK) have been added in our gallery. Many thanks to my friend Luciana for donating them. We added the full interview transcript in our press archive. Excerpts of the interview can be found below. Rachel talks about “True Detective“, “Aloha” and “Southpaw“.
On True Detective: “The material’s so dark it almost allowed the time when you weren’t at work to be very light. So there was a levity around the work that allowed you to really focus when you needed to, but there wasn’t this heaviness on set. Taylor has a really great, unexpected sense of humour that kind of catches you by surprise, Colin is Irish so… [laughs] you know, and then Vince is just so smart – I was amazed at the ways in which Vince could make things funny with this material.”
On Getting Involved in True Detective Season 2: ” I had a Skype [call] with Nic [Pizzolatto, creator and writer] first and that’s where it began. I read a couple of the episodes and hit the ground running.”

Rachel stopped by ABC’s Popcorn with Peter Travers while she was in New York to promote “Southpaw” last week. The episode was released today and she talked about “Southpaw“, “True Detective” and her career. We have added the interview in our video archive and the high definition screencaptures can be found in our gallery. This has to be one of our favorite interviews of this press tour. It’s really nice to hear Rachel talk about her career in a more in-depth way.
