Lea’s scenes from 5x16 Tested
Lea was in this episode a total of 3 minutes and 49 seconds. And in that time she was able to completely own the epsiode…once again.
I don’t know if its just because of the unfortunate path she is being lead down or because she is really and truly comfortable with who Rachel is, but Lea seems so much looser as an actress now. There’s an ease to her work and a confidence that doesn’t come off just as a big bravato. She understands Rachel, right now more so then anyone has ever understood a character. She vulnerable but not weak and she’s playing Rachel that way and its empowering and its heartbreaking and at times its hilarious - like last weeks TAXI scene.
I don’t know - I’ve noticed a shift this season - no doubt its due to what’s happened in her personal life. I don’t have too much faith in it being the writing. I think her acting is elevating the dismal story lines that she is being presented. I’m impressed. Rachel’s on a good and interesting glide right now and Lea’s playing it very beautifully.
Please watch it.
