Lauren Lapkus is sharing exclusive new details about The Wrong Missy, which is now streaming on Netflix. *Adds to queue*
The 34-year-old actress recently sat down for an interview with PureWow, where she discussed her out-of-this-world character, Missy. The film The Wrong Missy is a comedy about a woman who goes on a blind date with a man named Tim (David Spade). Shortly after, she accompanies him on a tropical vacation, but Missy soon learns that he meant to invite someone else.
Although Lapkus confirmed the audition was a “pretty simple process,” she admitted that she wasn’t sure how Missy would be perceived by viewers. “I really thought this character was so crazy, and I almost couldn’t imagine how it would come across on screen,” she told PureWow. “I was trying to figure out how far we could actually take her.”
For example, Missy gets extremely long acrylic nails in the movie, which feature a “hot pink fading into yellow” design. Although the scene got cut, Lapkus still had to sport the unfortunate manicure for continuity purposes.
