Yellowjackets Interview: Melanie Lynskey on Working with Sophie Nélisse, Secrecy, Spoilers and More

You don’t get better than the casting of Showtime’s Yellowjackets. The series takes place in 1996 and 2021, following what happens when a high school girls soccer team’s plane crashes on the way to nationals and they’re forced to do whatever it takes to survive out in the wilderness for 19 months. Then, the 2021 material shows how the survivors are coping with what they’ve done as they try to outrun a tragedy that’s seemingly always on the verge of consuming them all over again.

Every single 1996/2021 pairing is so shockingly spot-on it’s impossible to play favorites, but right now we’re putting the focus on the pitch-perfect connection Melanie Lynskey and Sophie Nélisse strike as Shauna. 

In celebration of Yellowjackets’ phenomenal Season 1 run on Showtime, Lynskey joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night. Yes, much of the focus was on Yellowjackets, but that’s just one of many stellar titles on Lynskey’s filmography. In addition to discussing working on Season 1 and some Yellowjackets spoilers, Lynskey revisited working on Heavenly Creatures, collaborating with Steven Soderbergh, how Miranda Harcourt changed the game for her career and so much more!
