Deadline – Aubrey Plaza is set to star as the title character in and produce Olga Dies Dreaming, Hulu’s one-hour drama pilot based on the novel by Xochitl Gonzalez.

Written by Gonzalez and to be directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Olga Dies Dreaming is the story of a Nuyorican brother and sister from a gentrifying Sunset Park in Brooklyn who are reckoning with their absent, politically radical mother and their glittering careers among New York City’s elite in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Plaza’s Olga Acevedo is a renowned wedding planner whose surface successes mask a darker interior. For Olga, the pursuit of perfection has become a compulsive survival mechanism as she tries to climb as far from her past as she can. Still, she can’t shake the feeling that the important people she knows don’t see her as their equals and this nagging sense that her success is an illusion always leaves her wanting more.

The Face Magazine – For the meat of her career, Aubrey Plaza has been famed for her off-kilter deadpan persona. When she wasn’t delivering deliciously dark performances in Parks and Recreation and Ingrid Goes West, she was making toes curl with her erratic, anxious talk show appearances. Even when she joins our Zoom chat, it’s her online alias ​“Evil Hag” that flashes up on the screen instead of her real name.

Yet over the past year, 36-year-old Plaza has finally let the world see her for who she really is. Over Christmas, she charmed audiences in queer romance Happiest Season, as one-third of the only Kristen Stewart love triangle that matters (go home Edward and Jacob). So enigmatic was Plaza that filmmaker Clea DuVall had to publicly defend the decision of Stewart going with the other girl.

I felt bad about that,” she laughs from her home in Los Angeles, while her rescue dog, Stevie, pants loudly on the bed. ​“When we first spoke about me playing the role, I joked that the audience would want Riley to end up with [Stewart’s] Abby and then it actually happened. I guess you just can’t deny good chemistry.

Today, she’s promoting her passion project Black Bear, a spiraling psychological drama. Plaza plays Allison, an elusive indie filmmaker in one act and a film star who’s married to her emotionally abusive director (Christopher Abbott) in the other. It’s a raw and vulnerable performance from Plaza, for a part that was written with her in mind. She even collaborated with writer-director Lawrence Michael Levine on the script.

There’s a moment when a character tells me that I’m really hard to read,” she recalls. ​“Larry actually said that to me in real life. He had this idea of who I was based on the characters I played, but when we really got to know each other, he was surprised by how sensitive and unsarcastic I actually am.

Plaza found it easy to step into this deconstructed idea of herself, but nothing could prepare her for the ​“down and dirty” shoot itself, which was crammed into 19 days and filmed only at night. ​“It was horrifying,” she remembers. ​“We didn’t have a lot of money and were shooting in some remote woods, which presents a lot of chaos and drama. There was blood and tears.

Black Bear​’s searing interrogation of abuse at the hands of the male-centric film industry motivated her. ​“There has been a romanticised history of women being manipulated and emotionally tortured for their performances by these mad men or genius auteurs,” she says. ​“I have older friends who are iconic actresses. They tell you stories about movies they were in – movies you love so much – and they were suffering the entire time. You have to ask: is it worth it? No.
