Brigette was interviewed by The Love Magazine earlier this month:

Atypical actor Brigette Lundy-Paine thinks fame has a way of contaminating people

“I really just want to do some weird shit,” says Brigette Lundy-Paine, on the phone from New York. “I want to redefine weirdness.”

So far, the 25-year-old actor’s quest to redefine weirdness has seen them do some pretty, well, weird stuff. In 2018, for example, they showed up to the Marie Claire Fresh Face Awards wearing a fake moustache and beard, sourced from special effects make-up artist, Bob Romero, who lives in Sherman Oaks, owns 400 pounds of hair, and did all of the hair on the original Planet Of the Apes.

Then there’s the improvisational voice band, Subtle Pride, who they sometimes play pretend guitar and beatbox with, and the experimental arts publication, Waif Magazine, that they’ve been working on for the past two years, and which produces subversive editorials featuring toothbrushes and cheetos – although not in the same shoot.

Weird, certainly, but also incredibly infectious. A quick scroll on their Instagram and you’re easily sucked into Brigette’s topsy-turvy world, filled with a whole cast of colourful characters in wigs and, yes, more facial hair.

But they’ve always marched to the beat of their own drum. “When I was younger, I had a really close friendship with my books,” they deadpan. “I remember having to go to a now very dear friend of mine’s, and bringing my book with me. We were in the car and I even strapped my book in next to me with a seatbelt.”

Brigette grew up in Portland, where their parents owned a local theatre company. Acting was inevitable. “It’s what I’ve been raised to do.” After moving to New York, aged 18, and studying at NYU, Brigette began landing small roles in films like Downsizing and The Glass Castle. They finally got their big break in 2017 on Netflix’s Atypical – a witty and relatable show about a boy named Sam who has autism. Brigette plays Casey, Sam’s protective younger sister.

Brigette, who identifies as queer and non-binary, sees a lot of themself in Casey, who over the course of season two navigates the choppy waters of adolescence while grappling with her sexuality. But it’s the differences between them that Brigette is most drawn to. “She’s more daring than me in many ways. She’s tougher. There’s such a confidence and a swagger that I didn’t have when I was younger and that gives me so much joy.”

With Atypical going into its fourth and final season, a recent and critically acclaimed turn as Megyn Kelly’s assistant in Bombshell, and a part in the upcoming reboot of seminal ’80s slacker movie Bill and Ted, in which they play Keanu Reeves AKA Ted’s teenage daughter (feel old yet?), Brigette is on the precipice of stardom. But when it comes to fame, they’re ambivalent. “I really think it contaminates people and your life, if you let it,” they pause. “The way I like to deal with it is just by putting the energy back into the people and communities around me. I never want it to be about me. If I can make it about the wacky world that I’m so lucky to be a part of then I’ll feel satisfied.”
