Constance Zimmer Agreed to Star in 'Unreal' Before Seeing the Script

Constance Zimmer revealed during an interview with Lauren Graham that she was “scared to death” to play the tough-as-nails Quinn King in Lifetime’s “Unreal.”

The fear, the challenge to make the character different, and the opportunity to work with a group of strong women drove her to commit to star in the show even before seeing the script.

The interview will air in its entirety on Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” Season 6, presented by Shutterstock, which premieres June 13 on PBS SoCal.
