Getting to work on "The Knick" has been one of the greatest experiences of my career. I screamed with joy when I got the part and I'm not a big screamer of joy. Amazing director, talented and really fun cast and all round impeccable team of super talented people in every department. I'm madly appreciative of this.
Michael Begler, Jack Amiel and Steve Katz wrote this extraordinary character of Sister Harriet - she leapt off the page. But I wanted to know more about nuns in 1900 when The Knick takes place, so I ordered nun books.
"Through the Narrow Gate," by Karen Armstrong was an unflinching account of her life as a nun in a convent pre Vatican II -- read every word of that!
Didn't read them all from cover to cover. Not quite that crazy!
