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.”

Brigette Lundy-Paine: Atypical’s Casey Wants It Weirder

The actor and singer dives into gender discovery, the art of queer scavenging, and finding a real-life love that feels like home.

While shooting the third season of the Netflix dramedy Atypical, Brigette Lundy-Paine spent a day gallivanting about the set wearing an umber three-piece tweed suit. The actor, who plays the boisterous, latently queer track star Casey Gardner, wore the getup to fulfill a basic gag: That evening, Casey would be attending a dinner party thrown by her older brother’s girlfriend, Paige. The fête was to have one rule: a blanket ban on — you guessed it — tweed. Sure enough, when Casey struts into the dining room, woolen coattails swinging behind her, Paige is overcome with horror.

While the three-piece served a relatively simple function in the episode, its influence on Lundy-Paine, who came out as nonbinary in November, proved far more complex. “I had these experiences playing Casey that have been huge in discovering my gender,’” the actor tells them. “Swinging around in that outfit was one of them.”

We’re in the back room of a candlelit Williamsburg bar; Lundy-Paine wears a hoodie, a pizza-emoji-stitched fanny pack, and a black hat whose earflaps suggest a soft butch remix of Holden Caulfield’s. It’s certainly not the iconic tweed, but they seem just as comfortable in the understated look, laughing easily as we discuss everything from their theater-heavy upbringing to challenging the performativity of gender.

At 25, Lundy-Paine is an old school kind of multi-hyphenate. Sure, they have over a million followers on Instagram, where they post behind the scenes gems alongside adorable videos of their cat, Moth. Yet their primary creative outlets remain more traditional forms: acting (Lundy-Paine boast credits in The Glass Castle and this year’s Oscar-nominated Bombshell), singing (they perform in an improvisational band called Subtle Pride), and publishing (having co-founded the experimental magazine Waif alongside their Subtle Pride bandmates).

Their approach to what they do, however, is anything but traditional. Like Lundy-Paine, Waif is variable, striking, vibrantly queer and exceptionally weird, a quality they prize. “Weird, to me, used to mean being weirder than the other kids and being scared of that,” they say. Now, Lundy-Paine no longer sees weirdness as what’s too much about them, but rather something there’s too little of in the world. “There’s a style of acting [training] called the Suzuki Method that preaches [approaching scenes] with this broad sense of asking literally what is going on and what needs to be done,” they explain. “That’s what [‘weird’] means to me now: finding ways to fill the empty space.”

Whether it’s the world of Netflix, magazines, or major Hollywood productions, Lundy-Paine has found in portraying queer lives a space worthy of filling. One can’t help but hope they continue filling it.

InStyle.com: Brigette Lundy-Paine’s Excellent Adventure

Brigette Lundy-Paine’s Excellent Adventure
Join us for some Small Talk as we sit down with some of Hollywood’s biggest breakout stars.

Brigette Lundy-Paine has their elbows at their sides, their hands stretched up toward the sky. The gesture is almost a shrug, but the effect is less “I don’t know” and more “I can’t help it, I really am this cool.” It’s an uncanny impression of Keanu Reeves in his most-gifed moment of 2019: his slo-mo introductory scene in the Netflix rom com Always Be My Maybe, in which he played an exaggerated version of himself.

The impression is so good it’s unsettling — that is, until you factor in the time the 25-year-old spent over the summer playing Reeves’s daughter in the upcoming Bill and Ted Face the Music. (They also dressed up as Reeves’s Matrix character, Neo, for Halloween this year). That chameleon-like ability to disappear into a character, though, isn’t just limited to an impersonation of their onscreen dad. They also seamlessly slip into “farm girl” when I ask about their favorite T-shirt, which they brought to set for our photoshoot.

“I have this character that I do called Farm Girl, and her story is that she lives with her father,” they explain, brimming with the same energy that compelled the photographer to praise their “amazing” personality during our shoot. “And one day the bad man comes and takes all the cows and so she has to go to the neighbor boy who she’s in love with and ask him for milk. This shirt reminds me of that.”

This theatricality has only served them well. After breaking out in Netflix’s Atypical, Lundy-Paine also made their mark in small but crucial movie roles, playing Christoph Waltz’s girlfriend in Downsizing and Brie Larson’s sister in The Glass Castle. But their career has picked up steam from there: filming for Bill and Ted wrapped in late August; Atypical’s third season dropped in last month; and their next project, the highly-anticipated Bombshell, is coming to theaters in December. Certainly, 2019 is poised to be the year that makes everyone sit up and notice Brigette Lundy-Paine.

It’s been a big year on the personal front, too. A few weeks after our late October interview, they came out as nonbinary in an Instagram post.

Ahead, Lundy-Paine discusses getting into acting as the family business, accidentally sticking their hand in Kate McKinnon’s pasta, and having secret handshakes with Keanu Reeves.

Atypical’s Queer Teen Romance Is a Delicate Lesson in Love & Empathy
Stars Brigette Lundy-Paine and Fivel Stewart chat with PRIDE about Season 3’s sweeping love story.

With Casey and Izzy sitting in uncomfortable silence, hands clasped together in her sedan, the last few minutes of Atypical’s second season left us with a very queer cliffhanger.

PRIDE caught up with two of the stars of the show, Brigette Lundy-Paine and Fivel Stewart, to chat about their will they/won’t they relationship that’s holding all of us in suspense.

“Casey is left with a decision she has to make, really there is no way around it,” Lundy-Paine tells PRIDE. “It’s a very hard one because it doesn’t only mean the end of one relationship and the beginning of the other transition, but sort of the reimagining of her whole self-perception and her life.”

Stewart adds, “It’s just a very real take on emotions. The confusion, the reality of what you’re already in and something else happens, and you have to be uncomfortable with these feelings. And I feel like that’s what’s so amazing about this show, that everyone gets so uncomfortable with what’s happening with their life.”

Atypical follows Sam Gardner, a suburban teen with Autism, as he navigates the highs and lows of school, work, and sex with the help of his loving-but-flawed family. Lundy-Paine, who came out as queer last year and now uses they/them pronouns, plays his cheeky little sister and feels a special connection to the series and the storyline.

“I think that the show, in general, is really queer. It’s about being different, feeling like you don’t have a place and finding that place, and kindness and empathy. Those are all very queer values. I also think that the Izzy/Casey storyline is really important because it’s such a delicate way to reveal this love and this discovery. Because it happens so slowly, the audience is really there at every moment. It’s very real.”

Perhaps that’s why fans have latched onto the couple. With a quick google search, you can find dozens of fan-made drawings and illustrations, and even AMVs: clips of just Casey and Izzy from the show edited together to tell their love story, set to the most grandiose and romantic music of course.

“That’s a dream come true,” Lundy-Paine comments on their fandom. “All I ever wanted.” Stewart adds, “And it’s with each other so that’s even better. And the animations are incredible.”

In a way, this season comes full circle with Elsa’s extramarital affair from season one and Casey’s turbulent love triangle. Casey was livid with her mother for cheating on her dad, but now she’s put in her shoes when trying to juggle her relationships with Izzy and Evan.

“What she learned from that experience with her mom and what she applied to her own life, I think is the key difference. But also I think an important lesson is that you are your parents. there’s no way to escape that, it’s terrifying but a reality. I’m wrapping my head around that, but I really am at the age where you’re like, ‘holy shit, who did I think that I was? To be different from these guys. They’re amazing.’ I think this episode, she really gets along with her mom in a way that we haven’t seen this season.”

And what do Lundy-Paine and Stewart hope queer fans get out of their storyline and the series as a whole?

“Just do what you want,” says Stewart. “If you feel something, go for it. Don’t ever be afraid of what anyone else thinks. If you feel something, you can’t dormant it. Eventually, that’s going to haunt you so you might as well face it.”

Lundy-Paine concludes, “There’s this insurgence of queer media right now that’s just like so fulfilling to hear. I’ve been listening to King Princess’s new album. It’s an era to grow up queer and celebrate yourself. I also think the show has so much to do with kindness. The community we have around it, The Miracle project we work really closely with. Their whole message is pure goodness. That’s something that I don’t think the queer community needs to learn, but for any community watching the show can take away.”

Woman Crush Wednesday: ‘Atypical’ Star Brigette Lundy-Paine Is the Fresh Face We Need

Hey, you know what’s a great two-for-one? Hump day AND Woman Crush Wednesday! Here’s a midweek low down on our new crush to help get you to the weekend. This star ain’t your typical gal…introducing Brigette Lundy-Paine!

WHO’S THAT GAL: Brigette Lundy-Paine

WHY WE’RE CRUSHING: Lundy-Paine stars in Netflix’s Atypical, which is returning for a third season this Friday, November 1. Atypical follows the life of an autistic teenage boy, Sam (Keir Gilchrist), who has decided to start dating. With the support of friends and family, including his mother Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), his father Doug (Michael Rapaport) and his sister Casey, played by Lundy-Paine, Sam begins to gain more independence and develop a better understanding of the dating world.

Overall, the show is a powerful portrayal of an “imperfect” family, but Lundy-Paine’s character Casey is clearly a standout. As the snarky and strong-willed, but extremely protective, younger sister of Sam, Casey is very hard not to like. From her hilarious one-liners to the vulnerability she allows herself to display, Casey is a deeply complex and deeply real character. And it’s easy to see why so many viewers have identified with her. The actress calls Casey an “underdog,” noting that that she’s gotten “a lot of messages from people who have siblings with autism” and from “young queer people and young people who don’t feel quite like they fit in.” Her character is unabashedly and completely her own person, and we’re so here for it.

From just one look at her Instagram or the many interviews the actress has given, it’s clear to see that the apple doesn’t fall so far from the tree. The real Lundy-Paine is also totally bad ass. Not only is she Co-founder of an alternative art magazine, Waif, but she’s also created an experimental art band, Subtle Pride, with three of her NYU classmates. In 2018, she opened up about her sexuality to The Advocate, identifying as queer. And while she says her understanding of her identity is still evolving, Lundy-Paine is not hiding any part of herself from the world. Her red carpet looks range from a glittery dress to an expertly groomed mustache and beard. This actress is celebrating her identity, and consequently giving others the space to do the same.

WHERE YOU’VE SEEN HER BEFORE: The 25-year-old has already made quite the name for herself in Hollywood, and in only four short years. She got her start appearing in an episode of MTV’s One Bad Choice, which features young people sharing the consequences of a single decision, along with dramatic reenactments. Her first feature-film was Woody Allen’s Irrational Man in 2015, which stars Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (sounds like some pretty good names for a first timer!). Lundy-Paine followed this up with her first major role: starring in Nike’s original series Margot vs. Lily as the title character Margot.

It’s undeniable that the actress’ break-out moment arrived in 2017 when she snagged a part in the highly-anticipated film The Glass Castle. Lundy-Paine played Maureen, the daughter of nomads Rex (Woody Harrelson) and Rose Mary (Naomi Watts), and the younger sister of Brie Larson’s character, Jeannette. Following this appearance, Lundy-Paine’s career picked up speed (as it should) as she landed even more feature film roles, among them the girlfriend of Christoph Waltz’s character Dusan in Downsizing and Lara in The Wilde Wedding, starring Glenn Close.

WHERE YOU’LL SEE HER AGAIN: Recently, Lundy-Paine completed a short called Fix, which centers on two sisters who take a vow of silence and head to a remote cabin to “detox” one of their boyfriends. The actress will also appear in one of the most anticipated films of the season, Bombshell, the true story of the women who took on Fox News’ Roger Alies. While Lundy-Paine has a smaller role, she will be shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the greatest actresses out there, including Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie, and Nicole Kidman.

And finally, in August 2020 Lundy-Paine will be appearing in Bill & Ted Face the Music, the third film in Keanu Reaves’ and Alex Winter’s franchise. This time, the two middle-aged men and rocker-hopefuls are visited by a time-traveller who tells them their music can save the future. I think it’s VERY fair to say that Lundy-Paine is on her way up. Get ready to see her grace our screens more often.
