For the second wig, which Elle wore throughout the sentencing scenes, Jules labored with Ren Studios’ Arjen and make-up artist Todd Watson to use a prosthetic brow piece. “This gave us the flexibility to point out thinness and hair breakage as a consequence of Michelle’s drastic weight reduction,” Jules mentioned, including that it took about an hour to get Elle prepared.
With the early episodes, the crew needed to be a bit extra artistic as there’s much less footage out there of Michelle from earlier than the trial. Mirren mentioned, “We sort of needed to give you our personal model of Michelle and the way she would costume and emulate—she’s type of a chameleon.”
They have been aided of their endeavors by Elle, who was an govt producer on the sequence. Mirren mentioned that the actress was invested in portraying “the small nuances and attempting to get as actual as doable,” including that it was “a tough problem.”
However seeing Elle on-screen made it price it, with Erin saying, “I am simply so extremely happy with Elle’s efficiency.”
