TOGETHERNESS Star Melanie Lynskey Talks her new HBO series – interview

Melanie Lynskey as Michelle Pierson on TOGETHERNESS | © 2015 Jaimie Trueblood/HBO

In HBO’s new half-hour TOGETHERNESS, Sundays at 9:30 PM, Melanie Lynskey plays Michelle Pierson. Michelle is a mother of two who starts to examine her marriage when her sister (Amanda Peet) and her husband’s best friend (Steve Zissis) move in with the family. The naturalistic tone of TOGETHERNESS, created by independent feature filmmakers/brothers Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass (who plays Michelle’s husband Brett) is distinctly different from the raucous high style of CBS’ TWO AND A HALF MEN, which Lynskey has recurred on for over a decade as Rose, devoted stalker and possibly murderer of Charlie Sheen’s character Charlie. Lynskey, […]Read On »
