Chloe Sevigny Talks Transgender Role in 'Hit And Miss'
Chloe Sevigny is continuing her tradition of tackling provocative roles: she's playing a transgender hitman in Hit & Miss, a six-week series launching Wednesday on DirecTV.
The opening scene of Hit & Miss will likely earn plenty of attention when Sevigny, 37, dons a prosthetic penis.
“Being around the men on set, being naked, and having that on, I just felt insecure and uncomfortable. Plus the process to put it on was very involved. I had to shave myself, it’s glued on, painted, like any prosthetic. It’s not fun to have someone right up in your private parts,” she said in the August 2012 issue of OUT.
How did she prepare for the role?
Sevigny went through firearms training, accent coaching, and kickboxing lessons.
Another thing Sevigny is preparing for: possible backlash.
“I was worried people would be angry that they didn’t cast a real person who was transitioning,” the Big Love actress said. “I asked why they didn’t, and the producers said they didn’t find the right person. It’s a big responsibility toward that community, and I wanted to do them right.”
"I really don’t want to offend anyone."
