Sarah “perfect and magical” in Masters of Sex

AnnaleighAshford.     Annaleigh Ashford, who plays Betty DiMello in Masters of Sex, when talking about recent rehearsal for the series, called Sarah “perfect and magical and just a joy.”
.     Sarah has been cast in the role of Helen, whom the season 1 storyline established as the former lover of the Betty character. UPI described Helen as “a self-professed psychic and palm reader,” who “still pines for” Betty.
.     Although Helen is not a comic role, Actress Ashford described some elements of Sarah’s portrayal as comedic in a way that is “inherent in the human,” and she gushed that Sarah’s “getting to show a side of her acting that’s so beautiful.”
.     Michelle Ashford (no relation to Annaleigh), the series’ creator, explaining that they sought for Helen to be played by an actress who “stood out,” commented on a particular movie role (leaving us to guess which) of Sarah’s in which she “was wonderful, and very grounded, and delicate” which showed that “she’s really a fine, fine dramatic actress,” and therefore “perfect for” Masters of Sex.  Season 2 of the series begins July 13 on Showtime.

    Really great actress(actor?) Wouldn’t be surprised if she won an oscar at some point. Although Cher needs to be eliminated first.

    Just to clarify, I don’t think Sarah is a man. I wasn’t sure what the politically correct term for an actress was.
