Melanie Goes All Heartbroken While Responding To Criticism Over Her Casting
It seems that Adrianne Curry’s tweet must have made Melanie Lynskey furious as she took to Twitter to give a heartbreaking response. She posted a screenshot of the deleted tweet together with a picture of the star’s InStyle shoot.
Afterwards, the Yellowjackets star made a separate tweet praising the co-creators of ‘The Last of Us’ for casting her. She appreciated the proven fact that she casts a character who is not “the coolest or toughest person” but someone who has the best ideas in the devastating world of The Last of Use.
She added: “I understand that some people are mad that I am not the typical casting for this role. That’s thrilling to me. Apart from the moments after the action is called, when you feel like you’re actually in someone else’s body, the most exciting part of my job is subverting expectations.”
Even although Adrianne Curry did not make a separate tweet to respond to Melanie, she made comments on different posts.
In one such post, Curry wrote, “I said it was too mild, short and curvy a word to buy as a ‘warlord’ over warrior men in a group of wild humans in a post-apocalyptic societal collapse.”
