Author: Tracy E. Gilchrist

There’s a palpable spark when Riley Keough’s Rebecca spots Lily Gladstone’s Cam across the room in a police station in Hulu’s limited series Under the BridgeUnder the Bridge Vritika Gupta as Reena Virk in Under the Bridge Chloe Guidry as Josephine and Lily Gladstone as Cam in Under the Bridge Riley Keough as Rebecca in Under the Bridge

“I knew the history that Cam’s character is pointing to being adopted Indigenous person, and I really liked the conversation and how she was maybe a bit faster to have compassion, to have just a feeling about Reena’s case,” Gladstone adds. “Also given some of Cam’s background that you learn revolving around her adoption that gives her another level of empathy and maybe another level of criticism against these kids. And the conversation that both of our characters want in a lot of ways the same thing but are coming from very different perspectives and very different lots in life.”

“You can have a fully rounded conversation about what our characters represented as people but also as institutions around this case, and ultimately the two of us,?” Gladstone adds about their dynamic. “While we are leading this, we think of ourselves way more in supporting roles to the rest of the story, which is so much the brilliance of the kids, and then just anchored in the Virk family and what their experience was.”
