This Is Your First Look At Meryl Streep In Big Little Lies 2
Meryl Streep has made her way to Monterey and boy oh boy does it suit her. Nicole Kidman just uploaded a picture from the set of Big Little Lies Season 2 and has given us our first look at Meryl who will make her debut on the much loved series in 2019.
Streep will be entering the whirlwind of drama that is the lives of the Monterey women as the mother to season one’s resident villain Perry Wright. For those who don’t remember from the absolutely epic episodes of season one, Perry was the abusive husband of Nicole’s character Celeste. And we say ‘was’ because he is also the one who was murdered while at the primary school fundraiser.
Streep’s character is apparently coming to the seaside town of Monterey to find answers after the unexpected death of her son.
She will join the already star studded cast who are returning to the show including executive producer Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, Adam Scott, Zoe Kravitz, James Tupper, Iain Ermitage, Jeffrey Nordling and many more.
During a recent visit to the Late Night show with Seth Meyers, Reese Witherspoon spoke about the moment that they found out that Meryl was locked in for Big Little Lies season 2.
“Well, she sent an email to Nicole and I,” said Witherspoon. “And it said, ‘OK, I read the part and I love it and I’m going to do it.’ And I like dropped the phone, like mic drop, but I phone dropped.
“And then I called Nicole and I was like, ‘Is this real life? Is this really happening?’ And then I got off the phone and Nicole and I, like, hugged myself gently for a minute and said, ‘This is really happening. You’re working with Meryl Streep.”
Yep even someone as big as Reese Witherspoon fan-girls over Meryl Streep!
Big Little Lies season 2 will head to HBO in 2019.
