POLLYANNA MCINTOSH STARS IN HAP AND LEONARD
HAP AND LEONARD
By Bruce Fretts
Pollyanna McIntosh might seem like the most misnamed actress working today. Despite her optimistic moniker, the Scottish-born stunner has become known for playing grim roles in British films like Filth (based on a novel by Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh) and the primal horror saga The Woman. Still, she contends, “Everything I’ve done that’s dark has had hope in it. If it didn’t, it wouldn’t interest me.”
She’s bringing that spirit to another violent character as the equally misnamed Angel, a murderous moll in SundanceTV’s Texas crime dramedy Hap and Leonard. McIntosh spoke with Playboy.com about the new six-part series (co-starring James Purefoy, Michael K. Williams and Christina Hendricks), her background in plus-size modeling and burlesque, and her gift for making relatable characters out of the darkest material.
