Gold Standard

Holly Hunter plumbs the mysteries of GJ and 'Top of the Lake'

June 12, 2013|By Glenn Whipp

Did you spend seven hours watching the Sundance Channel's crime-drama "Top of the Lake" and still feel like you didn't quite understand what Holly Hunter's oracle, GJ, was all about? Hunter doesn't exactly blame you since many of the mysteries surrounding the enigmatic character were never fully solved.

But that didn't stop Hunter from having a go at them in a live chat that you can watch here. The Oscar-winning actress talks about her reunion with director Jane Campion ("The Piano"), the transformative powers of a gray wig and what it's like playing a guru who doesn't particularly enjoy having followers. Listen in, won't you?
