Carrie Preston shares Claws, True Blood, and My Best Friend's Wedding memories
Carrie Preston has pretty much done it all.
The Georgia native and Julliard graduate has made a name for herself as an actor able to melt into any kind of role — a feat she pulls off on a single episode of Claws alone. "I'm a character actor. And when I got the [Claws] script, I thought, 'This is going to be an opportunity to really stretch myself and play a bunch of different characters within this one character,' " Preston, 54, says of stepping into the many different shoes of con artist Polly on the TNT drama (which also begins its final season Sunday at 9 p.m. ET). "How could I resist that chance?"
There is one thing that Preston likely won't do these days, though: forgo her signature red hair. You'll find out why that is — and a whole lot more — as Preston looks back at her diverse résumé below.
Where to start among her 80-plus projects, including True Blood, My Best Friend's Wedding, Lost, Sex and the City, and so much more? "Should we start at the very beginning," Preston asks, "a very good place to start?"
Claws airs Sundays and 9 p.m. on TNT.
