“Collider Ladies Night” returns, but with a brand new spin on it! This new iteration of the show puts a spotlight on the ladies taking over Hollywood that you absolutely should know about. In front of the camera, behind it, maybe both; this series is highlighting individuals who are not only delivering top-notch content but they’re also changing the industry for the better, and we’re kicking this off with Pet Sematary‘s Amy Seimetz.
The movie marks her first lead role in a major studio release, but odds are, you’ve seen her work before, whether it’s her performances in independent films like Upstream Color and A Horrible Way to Die, her work as a showrunner on The Girlfriend Experience, or maybe her appearance on Stranger Things as Jane Ives. Her whole resume comes together to suggest that Seimetz is a storytelling Swiss Army knife who not only takes great pride in creating bold material but is also extremely knowledgable in a multitude of departments with a burning desire to learn more.
Basically, I think Hollywood needs more creatives like Amy Seimetz and that’s why she’s the very first centerpiece for this revamped version of “Collider Ladies Night!” Be sure to check out our full conversation on her journey from becoming an accidental actor to taking the studio plunge and signing on to star in the new Pet Sematary movie in the video at the top of this article. Seimetz also shares tons of inspiring details about the importance of longevity in her career, what made her jump into Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant, why she feels like a spy on sets, and so much more. You can hear about it all in this episode of “Collider Ladies Night!”
Also, be sure to catch her in Pet Sematary when the movie hits theaters nationwide on April 5th. In case you missed it, I absolutely loved the film. Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.
