For the upcoming Fall tv season, Michelle Trachtenberg will be reprising her guest role as Georgina Sparks on Gossip Girl but will also be one of the leads in the NBC drama, Mercy, as Chloe Payne.
Q: With your two shows, one character is very sweet and the other is a schemer. Do you have a preference?
Michelle: Not necessarily. I think it’s very important, as an actress, to never peg yourself in a particular hole. You look at Meryl Streep and the woman is just so extraordinary and such a chameleon. Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore and all of these women are constantly changing themselves. Halle Berry always talked about how they didn’t want her for Monster’s Ball, and how she was like, “Screw you guys. I’m gonna show you.”
I think it’s very important for an actress to switch it up. Whereas Georgina is very malicious, Chloe isn’t. And, for me, as an actress, it’s fun to go back and forth. It’s a little bit of a split personality. SourceView All Photos ›
