THOSE WHO KILL’S CHLOË SEVIGNY
Fashion icon and Golden Globe award-winner Chloë Sevigny (“Big Love,”Boys Don’t Cry) ditches the glamour for her latest role as “Catherine Jensen” in A& E’s new suspenseful crime series “Those Who Kill.”
The chameleon-like actress known for taking risks both on screen and on the red carpet joins the illustrious group of women currently headlining intense dramatic series on both broadcast and cable networks.
Fans of thrillers like The Bone Collector and Silence of the Lambs will revel in Sevigny’s portrayal of a young female homicide detective in the intense, male-dominated world of homicide detectives.
Based on the Danish crime series format inspired by the bestselling work of author Elsebeth Egholm, the thrilling drama follows Catherine Jensen (Sevigny), a recently promoted homicide detective who tracks down serial killers and relentlessly seeks the truth behind the disappearance of her brother.
Pittsburgh serves as the picturesque backdrop for the ten-episode serialized drama.
As a freshly minted homicide detective, Catherine Jensen has garnered a reputation for overstepping her boundaries in her unrelenting pursuit to solve Pittsburgh’s most gruesome murders.
Motivated by her past, including the disappearance of her brother and the suspicion that her stepfather is a serial killer, she often finds herself emotionally connected to the victims she’s investigating.
Jensen enlists the help of Thomas Schaeffer (James D’Arcy), a forensic psychologist who has a tumultuous relationship with the police department, to provide insight into her cases and her personal investigation into her stepfather. He too finds himself deeply connected to each case, but often through the killer, which proves to be a hazardous undertaking. The pair shares a skewed sense of judgment that often puts them, and sometimes even their families, at risk. As these two captivating yet flawed characters come together, their bond often rescues them from their individual demons but may be the source of more harmful tribulations.
From the opening frames where we meet Catherine skulking in a parked car in the middle of the night, to the ending cliffhanger which gives us just a peek into her sordid and complicated past, Sevigny’s Catherine Jensen is, all at once, strong, vulnerable, unabashed and fragile. As she races to catch a serial killer, she’s forced to confront some of the demons from her past. And her partnership with the complex and very married Schaeffer belies tensions that are sure to come in future plot twists of both a personal and professional nature.
At the Those Who Kill premiere party, Ms. Sevigny was every bit the fashionista we’ve grown to love – donning a gorgeous black halter dress with flirty white petticoat and easy, feminine up swept hair. After walking the red carpet at the star-studded affair, Ms. Sevigny joined partygoers and posing for endless photographs.
The essence of grace, humility, talent and substance, Chloë Sevigny is an actress that critics and fans alike can agree on. Not yet a fan? Tune in on March 3, and you will be.
A&E Network will premiere “Those Who Kill” on Monday, March 3 at 10 PM ET/PT.
