Interview: Vulture Talks to True Detective’s Alexandra Daddario


A lot has happened for Alexandra Daddario since the end of True Detective. She has two films coming in 2015 and 2016 — San Andreas and The Choice, respectively — and she appeared in New Girl for two episodes. Vulture’s interview with Daddario touches on her New Girl appearance and her current projects, but it’s the small section on True Detective which brings us here today. Daddario talks about how everything changed for her after her role on True Detective:

"“A lot has changed since True Detective…I didn’t expect anything crazy to happen from True Detective. But it really was a big change in the sense that, all of a sudden, I was able to get into rooms to read for projects that I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to do.”"

The success of True Detective has proven itself to be a spring-board of sorts for its actors. That’s obvious in the case of Matthew McConaughey, but it’s great to see it happen for others. Hopefully season two will be able to provide a similar momentum for its stars, but we’ll have to wait and see on that one. Daddario isn’t the first actor to talk about something of a career boost post True Detective, and it’s nice to see that it’s a continuing trend.

Daddario has in the past also come out firmly against the misogynist claims that have been dogging True Detective’s first season. With two female leads — assuming they’re well written — we hopefully won’t see the same controversy pop up again.
