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.”

Christina Ricci Always Thought She Would Get Better Roles As She Got Older!

Christina Ricci has been in the film industry for nearly three decades, but she admits that she always knew the better roles would come once she got older.

“I thought I would do better as I got older. In my 20s, I wasn’t really considered a romantic lead, but I was also not character-actressy enough. It was a weird position. I was so young-looking,” the 36-year-old actress recently told The Guardian.

“They still don’t like to cast me in anything where I have to be a professional,” Christina added. “They’re like, ‘It’s not believable.’ I’ve been waiting to get older so I could get parts. I’ve never just been offered good or interesting things. I’ve always had to go after things and, in this case (referring to her szhow Z: The Beginning of Everything), create my own work.”
