Listen to this episode of the Moment with guest Malin Akerman:
This week on the Moment, Brian and his special guest co-host, Billions co-creator David Levien, talk to Malin Akerman, the actress best known for her roles in The Heartbreak Kid; Couples Retreat; and Showtime’s latest series, Billions. Malin discusses how a tumultuous relationship with her mother shaped her career and personality (6:00), when she realized she wanted to be an actor (11:00), and how becoming a parent moved her away from comedy and toward drama (23:00). Also, Malin talks about how she prepares to go toe-to-toe with Maggie Siff in a scene (32:00) and the effect of being an outsider playing American characters (36:00).
The Moment is brought to you by A&E’s hit series Bates Motel. Catch the new season, which returned March 7 on A&E.
