“For me the name of the game is to present to you a woman who lives every day in the trenches of maternity.”
Actress Vera Farmiga has staked out a career that includes many unforgettable roles from The Departed to The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Recognized by critics and fans alike, she was nominated for an Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Award for the movie Up in the Air.
The Ukrainian from New Jersey scared audiences with films like Orphan and The Conjuring and now the 40-year-old star continues to scare fans on TV in A&E’s Bates Motel, where she plays the iconic Norma Louise Bates. Farmiga’s work was again recognized with a nomination for Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for the first season of Bates Motel.
The second season of Bates Motel premiered last month and scored 3.07 million viewers, which marked a series high for the show. Jerry Nunn talks to Farmiga about the show’s success.
JN: (Jerry Nunn) Hi, Vera. Congrats on season two of Bates Motel. Were you worried prior to season one about it being set in modern times?
VF: (Vera Farmiga) Yes. I’d be lying if I didn’t have like some reservation about it when I was initially presented with the offer. I thought there is so many things that can go wrong. We’re borrowing these characterizations or these plots points from the most successful horror film ever.
I think what assured me was when I saw Freddie’s audition tape because it wowed me. I saw it. It became to me simply a story and is about this relationship between mother and son. I’m a mom of two toddlers. The story for me resonates.
