Greta's Secrets, Explained by Poppy Liu

[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for Prime Video’s Dead Ringers.]

The Prime Video remake of Useless Ringers is centered on the story of gynecologist twins Elliot and Beverly Mantle (each performed by Rachel Weisz), whose deep bond frays as they work collectively to innovate the methods by which girls give beginning right now. The Mantle twins dwell in an advanced world full of difficult characters, although, together with Greta (Poppy Liu, Hacks), the home supervisor who takes care of their home wants. Greta has ulterior motives in working for the twins, nevertheless, revealed slowly over the course of the six-episode season.

Greta at first looks as if she’s as much as one thing extraordinarily nefarious, given how (when the Mantles aren’t wanting) she’s amassing seemingly countless organic samples from the twins, together with hair and used tampons. “It’s fascinating as a result of lots of the creepy stuff my character does, she does alone,” Liu tells Consequence. “I’m actually the one actor on set for lots of these pictures — when she’s in her form of Silence of the Lambs-esque basement, it’s simply me. The set design that they did for that basement was chilling. As a result of it appears like she’s a serial killer. It feels prefer it was taking place a very completely different route.”

Taking part in the position was one thing Liu savored, they are saying, as a result of “it form of felt like Greta was her personal form of aspect canvas, the place everybody’s like, ‘We’re going to all put a bit little bit of our personal enter into this character.’ There was lots of co-creation with hair, make-up, wardrobe — I believe they actually let all of the completely different inventive departments run with it.”

This included the creation of Greta’s residence: “The set design of that basement and what you see on display screen is simply actually a fraction of it. There are drawers upon drawers all labeled with freaky little physique components, completely different fluids or issues or compartments. It’s so intensive.”

To not point out the costume design by Keri Langerman: “Keri is an Asian girl, and I bear in mind throughout our first becoming, she too was like, ‘I discover this character actually fascinating. And likewise as an Asian particular person, I additionally don’t need anybody to ever take a look at Greta and be like, oh, you’re an Asian maid particular person. We’re going to do this by ensuring she’s the best-dressed particular person in each room that she’s in.’ And I believe she completed that to some extent the place it’s nearly complicated why Greta’s chopping apples sporting designer leather-based pants and an Ariana Grande ponytail, or in a full face of make-up serving tea.”
