When getting ready to portray her role as Vice President Selina Meyer in this highly anticipated series, the Emmy award winner says she watched a lot of C-SPAN. The reason behind it? According to the Huffington Post, ”She wanted to study how to answer questions in a public setting without really answering them.”
“Some politicians are better at it than others. It’s a performance. Particularly these days. People don’t really answer questions. In this culture of sound bites and 24-hour news … people are careful about how they speak,” says Louis-Dreyfus. In the series, Selina Meyer is an outspoken, powerful woman who quickly realizes that her role as Vice President wasn’t what she thought it would be.
“I love my character. I love her narcissism, I love her rage, I love her ambition and I love the fact that she’s a political animal,” says Louis-Dreyfus. If you want to catch Louis-Dreyfus on VEEP tune in to HBO tonight at 10. Don’t miss it!
