Kirsten recently opened up about how her role in Fargo was inspired by her grandmother.

“Oh, I used everything. A little dash of my grandmother. My dreams. Things that annoy me. People on set. I used everything possible to give my character an inner life that felt grounded,” she explained.

Kirsten added that she wished her grandmother had lived to see the show. “My only wish is that my grandma could have seen it. She’s from Minnesota and she passed away before I did all this. That was the most heartbreaking thing for me watching it. My grandma would have gotten such a kick out of Fargo.”

Even though she won’t be featured in the next season of Fargo, Kirsten imagined how Peggy would handle jail time.

“I think she makes the most of it. I’m sure she’s like Orange Is the New Black-style, trading things, doing people’s hair, that kind of life. I’m sure she has her little pepper packets to make her food taste better,” she explained.

Kirsten added, “In her mind, she didn’t kill anybody. If she lived in a different time, she would have had a different life completely. I think she was too advanced in the way she thought for her situation.”
