If you have been one of the many who have already seen Netflix's YOU, we are certain you have been blown away by it. Interestingly, the actress of the show, Elizabeth Lail has actually had eventful first few years in Hollywood. From landing the role of Anna in Once Upon a Time to being a finalist for playing Supergirl and being in a shelved David Fincher project, her true shoot to fame has been Netflix's You.
“It feels like icing on the cake,” Lail tells The Hollywood Reporter. “You never really know what you’re getting involved in, and you have no idea if anyone will want to watch it or not. People were so invested in her fate, and it’s created so many interesting — and important — conversations about toxic masculinity and online stalking. I’m still grateful, and it’s still influencing my career to this day.”
The success of You quickly led to Lail’s first feature offer as the lead role in STX’s Countdown, a horror film about an app that predicts the exact time of a person’s death. For the first time in her career, Lail enjoyed the process of hosting chemistry reads involving her male counterparts.
“That was fun for me because I’ve always been the one testing with the guy who’s leading a show or movie,” Lail explains. “So, this time, everyone had to test their chemistry with me, and that was a really rewarding experience for me.”
We certainly cannot wait to now see Lail in her next leading project in the form of Countdown.
