During her interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “Yellowjackets” star Melanie Lynskey was quick to heap praise on to the younger cast, which includes Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Thatcher and Samantha Hanratty, as well as Lynskey’s younger counterpart Sophie Nélisse.
“They’re all so talented, like they’re gonna do an incredible job,” Lynskey said, “but a lot is being asked, for sure.” When the interviewer pointed out that Lynskey and the older cast members also have plenty being asked of them as well, the actor deflected the attention back to the younger cast. There are a few reason why they have such a mighty task, including the environment the younger cast is in.
“You know, they’re also outside all the time,” Lynskey said. “It’s different.”
