MY SATURDAYS | PLAY
3:00 p.m. Dancing is my main exercise. I’ll often dance while cleaning my apartment, even if I just follow a dance tutorial off the internet. I know I need to do some strength training, but the most I do is some ballet moves, squats, or the occasional turn on my rowing machine. 3:45 p.m. I love independent bookstores like McNally Jackson in Williams- burg. I’ll buy another coffee (Dutch people drink a lot of coffee!), grab a book, and sit and read. I recently finished Luster by Raven Leilani. It blew my mind, and I thought it was pretty cool that she also happens to be from Brooklyn. 6:30 p.m. I’ll meet friends for margaritas and tacos and then maybe go and listen to live music. I love jazz and have been known to follow people around the East Village who are car- rying an instrument and ask them if they are playing anywhere that evening. I like to find smaller, indie music scenes where people are trying to be creative. 8:00 p.m. There are so many great actors in New York and getting to see them on stage (like Allison Janney and John Benja- min Hickey in Six Degrees of Separation ) is amazing. What I find most special about being in the theater is seeing any type of art together with other people. It’s like we’re in this little bubble together for two hours, watching the actors make something. It’s very impactful. 10:30 p.m. What time I go to sleep depends on how many lines I must learn for the next week. I knew when I first saw the script for Evil that it was going to be special. The creators, Michelle and Robert King, also did The Good Wife , so I knew mine would be a complicated and fun charac- ter. If I’m awake enough after studying lines, I’ll watch TV, turn out the lights, and sleep with Lientje.
EVIL The new season starts streaming Sunday, June 12, at 12 a.m. PT on Paramount +
