Christina Ricci Opens Up About Why She Wanted to Make 'Z: The Beginning of Everything'

Christina Ricci is ready to share her new series, Z: The Beginning of Everything.

The 37-year-old actress stepped out at the show’s Emmy FYC screening on Friday (April 28) at Hollywood Athletic Club in Hollywood.

Christina was joined by her co-star David Hoflin at the screening, which also included a panel discussion.

The series is based on Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, which is a fictionalized look at the extraordinary life and times of American socialite.

“I think that for me, what I really wanted was this idea of giving this woman who lives in myth – either adored or reviled – make her human, give her back her humanity,” Christina explained.

She added, “It’s sort of like pulling back the curtain a little bit, so the celebrity aspect of it and the iconic kind of aspect of it was something I didn’t even think of at all, except for the way that celebrity affected her behavior, and how she felt about herself.”
