Danish actress Connie Nielsen first gained attention for her work in such films as The Devil’s Advocate, Permanent Midnight, and Rushmore, but it was her role as Lucilla in the Academy Award-winning film Gladiator that made her an international star. Since then she has gone on to appear in a string of popular films including One Hour Photo, The Hunted, and Basic, as well as an arc on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and the critically acclaimed series Boss.
In fact, she has recently returned to TV with a role on the popular Fox series The Following starring Kevin Bacon. Nielsen plays the sinister Lily Gray, a deranged woman with alternative motives for serial killer/cult leader Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) and a vendetta against former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon). However, she can also currently be seen on the big screen opposite Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner in the box office hit 3 Days to Kill, which is currently playing in theaters now.
The film, which was directed by McG (Terminator Salvation) and written by Luc Besson (Leon: The Professional), centers on a dying Secret Service Agent named Ethan Renner (Kevin Costner) trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Hailee Steinfeld). He is offered an experimental drug that could save his life by a mysterious operative (Amber Heard) in exchange for one last assignment. Nielson plays Renner’s ex-wife Kristin, who must learn to trust Ethan again.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking to Connie Nielsen about her work in 3 Days to Kill, as well as The Following. The talented actress discussed her new movie, collaborating with director McG, balancing action and drama in the same film, acting with the great Kevin Costner, The Following, not knowing her character’s motives, working with the actor who plays both of her twin sons, and what’s in store for her character the rest of the season.
