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.”
Daniel and Kerwin’s prison conversations. The night with the goat man. Amantha cursing out the sherriff. No doubt you have your favorite scene from RECTIFY Season 1. Guess what. The cast does too. Here actors Abigail Spencer, Adelaide Clemens, Clayne Crawford and Luke Kirby reflect on RECTIFY moments that were both gratifying and challenging to shoot.
Abigail Spencer (Amantha Holden): I would say the scene when Daniel was released, on a couple of different levels – one, it was the very first scene that we shot. And, two, it was such a huge moment, thinking of all of the everything that went into his release and all the years and all the life before that. Also, Aden had very long hair and a beard during all of rehearsals. And the morning of he and Ray had to decided to cut all his hair off… so i hadn’t seen him and then he came out completely clean shaven and it was very overwhelming.
With the discovery of new DNA evidence, Daniel Holden is released from prison after nearly 20 years on death row for the rape and murder of Hanna Dean.
