With the Season 3 premiere date of RECTIFY just announced, we thought it was time to catch up with series star Abigail Spencer (Amantha). The actress filled us in on her favorite moment in Season 2, what her “Mad Men” character meant to the series and how she landed her new role in “True Detective.”
She’s so much more than Amantha! RECTIFY’s Abigail Spencer will premiere her short “Winter Light” at Atlanta Film Festival 2015.
Daniel is visited by the ghost of Kerwin, who tells Daniel to wake up.
At an Atlanta hospital, Amantha and Janet panic as Daniel struggles to emerge from an induced coma. Nurses rush in to put him back into the coma.
While at the scene of Daniel’s attack, Lid tells Carl that a witness saw a blue truck leave the cemetery. Carl insists on finding the attackers despite Lid’s warning that it will hurt his reelection chances.
Abigail Spencer, who plays Amantha Holden on RECTIFY, talks about the key to her character’s style and working alongside co-star Aden Young (Daniel Holden).
Q: Amantha is a very unusual name. Do you know how Ray came up with it?
A: Ray and I have never spoken about this, which is so funny. But I heard through someone who heard that Ray has a friend who has a daughter named Amantha and the character is named after the daughter… And I was surprised, I was like Oh, a human is actually named this? Actually there was a version of the script in Season 2 that explains the name, but the scene got cut, so we will continue to ponder the origins.
Q: Amantha’s style on RECTIFY is adorable. Does Amantha’s style match your personal style at all? Is there anything from her wardrobe that you’d like to steal?
