'Better Call Saul': Rhea Seehorn wants more women behind the camera
Rhea Seehorn is calling on the creative women of the world to roll up their sleeves and get to work.
Speaking last month on the red carpet at the Entertainment Weekly SAG Awards party, the Better Call Saul actress told EW that she sees a wealth of talent in the women around her, but she’s ready to see more.
“There’s a lot of discussion about women on camera, but the discussion about women behind the camera is literally less visible and something that needs to be talked about,” she said. “I’ve never been surrounded by more powerful women [on Better Call Saul] in executive producer roles… to the writers, to the producers, to the directors. Write your own stuff and generate your own material, because I think we need more women making stuff!”
Seehorn also noted that in an industry where men are the dominant force, the tides could turn if more women banded togethe. “I think there’s nothing more [upsetting] than when a woman competes against another woman instead of giving her a leg up,” she said. “If we stick together, we could run this ship!”
