Kathryn Newton recently gushed about her newest Big Little Lies co-star! The actress sat down with People to talk about her role as Abigail Carlson and the cast of the HBO show.
Newton shared that she first met Meryl Streep at the table read for the second season of the show. Actress, Reese Witherspoon encouraged Newton to “go say hi”.
Streep greeted her with a hug. Newton also recalled the time when the Monterey Five (Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley) invited her to have dinner with Streep. The actress confessed that she was lost for words while eating with the legendary actress.
In terms of her character, she shared that Abigail will be “even more sassier” in the second season. She dished that the latest season will have more drama than the first.
The Detective Pikachu star confessed she almost didn’t star in the latest season! Newton shared that she called Witherspoon crying, because the filming schedule for her new Pokémon movie overlapped with Big Little Lies. She thanked Witherspoon for pulling strings so she could work on both projects.
Newton also stars in a new Netflix series called The Society. You may recognize her from her prior roles in Blockers, Supernatural, Lady Bird, Dog with a Blog, Paranormal Activity 4, and Bad Teacher.
