Collider Ladies Night puts the spotlight on the need-to-know female voices in Hollywood through an entertaining, in-depth conversation. Who’s on the rise? Who’s changing the industry for the better? Collider.com senior producer Perri Nemiroff sits down with these standout forces to cover their journey from early influences, current projects, and beyond.

    Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All At Once)

    Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All At Once)

    Everything Everywhere All At Once is changing the game in a very big way for breakout star Stephanie Hsu.
    No synopsis can do the full film justice, but just in case you’ve yet to experience the phenomenon, Everything Everywhere All At Once focuses on Michelle Yeoh’s Evelyn Wang, a woman struggling to keep her family’s laundromat afloat with her husband, Waymond (Ke Huy Quan). Evelyn is so wrapped up in that, filing her taxes, and her father’s (James Hong) arrival from China that she fails to notice how much her daughter Joy (Hsu) really needs her. As though things couldn’t get more complicated, in comes another version of her husband, Waymond from the “Alphaverse.” The multiverse is in danger, and he thinks that Evelyn has the power to save it.
    Everything Everywhere All At Once began racking up positive reviews out of its SXSW world premiere and gained even more before hitting theaters on March 25th. From there, the film's star continued to soar, inspiring many to give this wacky multiverse adventure oozing with heart a go. In fact, it’s currently getting mighty close to becoming A24’s highest-grossing release at the domestic box office. It’s a marvel of a movie that could and should continue to make waves through 2022.
    Admittedly, I was a little late to the game on Everything Everywhere All At Once, only catching the film two weeks into its theatrical release, but you can bet the first thing I did when I got home from the screening was send the necessary emails to get Stephanie Hsu on an episode of Collider Ladies Night.
    Check out this episode of the show to hear all about Hsu's journey from thinking she'd stick to experimental theater to booking roles in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Everything Everywhere All at once!

    Sasha Lane (Conversations with Friends)

    Sasha Lane (Conversations with Friends)

    With Conversations with Friends now available to stream on Hulu, Sasha Lane joins Perri Nemiroff for an episode of Collider Ladies Night!
    Not only is Lane a one-of-a-kind talent, but she's also had a one-of-a-kind journey in the industry thus far. Lane didn't have ambitions to become an actor, rather she was approached by director Andrea Arnold while on spring break to be in her film, American Honey. Even after American Honey's success, Lane had some apprehensions about pursuing a career in Hollywood, but fortunately, she had supportive forces like Riley Keough and producer Lars Knudsen in her corner nudging her forward.
    Check out this edition of Collider Ladies Night to hear all about that first encounter with Arnold, Lane's first auditions after American Honey's success, why her Spider-Man audition didn't feel quite right but Loki sounded like an MCU project that would be a great fit, why Conversations with Friends felt like a project well worth committing to, and loads more!

    Reign Edwards (The Wilds Season 2)

    Reign Edwards (The Wilds Season 2)

    With a new season of The Wilds now available to stream on Prime Video, it’s time for a brand new episode of Collider Ladies Night with one of the show’s hugely talented cast members. We were lucky enough to have Mia Healey on for Season 1, and now it’s time to put the spotlight on Reign Edwards for Season 2!
    Edwards’ Rachel is central to one of Season 1’s biggest cliffhangers. After finally getting to a better place and heading back into the water, Rachel is attacked by a shark in the finale episode. Not only does she lose her hand during the encounter, but she also loses her sister, Nora (Helena Howard).
    It’s hard to imagine much bigger character challenges to tackle for an actor, but Edwards was ready for it. During our Collider Ladies Night conversation, we retraced her steps in the industry which revealed a few key influences and production experiences that gave her the tools she needed to tackle such deeply emotional material with great nuance and heart.
    Check out what she told us about The Wilds Season 2, The Bold and the Beautiful, MacGyver, and more on this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

    Imogen Poots (Outer Range)

    Imogen Poots (Outer Range)

    With Outer Range’s eight-episode run on Prime Video now complete, Imogen Poots took the time to join us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to revisit her journey from her earliest credits to joining the cast of Amazon’s supernatural Western.
    Outer Range puts the spotlight on Josh Brolin’s Royal, the head of the Abbott family who’s doing everything he can to keep their ranch up and running. Royal’s already got quite a bit to sort through when the show opens, but things get increasingly complicated when he gives a backpacker (Poots) the OK to camp on his property and then even more so when he discovers an enormous, inexplicable hole on his land.
    As always on Collider Ladies Night, we made our way through as much of Poots’ filmography as possible in an effort to pinpoint the steps needed to reach her latest release, Outer Range. Many lessons were learned along the way, but some of the projects that made the biggest impression were the ones that helped her figure out the types of stories she wanted most wanted to tell, projects like Green Room, Need for Speed, and Roadies.
    Hear all about that and dig into some very curious Outer Range spoilers with Poots on this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

    Lily Sheen (The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent)

    Lily Sheen (The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent)

    Make way for Lily Sheen - and also a brand new subseries of Collider Ladies Night called Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party! In an effort to shine an even bigger spotlight on emerging talent, we’re expanding the Ladies Night brand to include a series of stripped-down long-form interviews with industry newcomers to give you the opportunity to get to know them, learn more about their first big projects, and to get a sense of their career goals moving forward. No games, no cutaways — just an in-depth conversation focusing on the guest’s passion for their craft and future ambitions. And who better to start with than Lily Sheen? Someone who’s had a foot in the industry her entire life courtesy of her parents, Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen, and is now breaking out on her own with a major role in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
    The movie stars Nicolas Cage as a fictional version of himself. Not only is he struggling to find fulfilling work and pay off some serious debt, but Nic is also drifting away from his daughter, Sheen’s Addy. He desperately wants to share all of his passions with her, but has a hard time understanding and staying open-minded when she expresses different interests. In an attempt to make progress with one of those challenges, Nic reluctantly accepts a $1 million offer to attend a superfan’s (Pedro Pascal) birthday party in Mallorca. However, while there, Nic is shocked to find a kindred spirit who shares his love of storytelling, and also someone who inspires him to prioritize other elements of his life, like his family.
    With The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent in theaters nationwide, Sheen helped us kick off Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party with a 20-minute conversation covering her journey in the industry thus far. Enjoy!

    Jessica Williams (Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore)

    Jessica Williams (Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore)

    With Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore due out in theaters on April 15th, Jessica Williams joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to discuss how she went from Daily Show correspondent to picking up the wand and joining the Wizarding World franchise.
    After making a brief cameo appearance in The Crimes of Grindelwald, Williams’ Professor Eulalie Hicks becomes a main player in the third film of the Fantastic Beasts series. She’s a charms professor at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who has a history with Jude Law’s Albus Dumbledore. When Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) starts making new moves to assume control of the Wizarding World, Dumbledore knows he won’t be able to stop him alone so assembles a team of the best of the best in an effort to take him down. That team includes someone who’s especially skilled in defensive magic, Williams’ Lally.
    Williams’ star soared when she became the youngest Daily Show correspondent in 2012. While her run on that show could lead some to believe that success as a comedian and host is the main career goal, acting is actually Williams’ top priority and has been ever since she was a kid courtesy of the support and encouragement she got from her family, especially from her grandmother. Hear all about that, get the play-by-play of her Daily Show audition, find out how Williams deals with on-set challenges and loads more on this episode of Collider Ladies Night!

Best interview ever

Kristian Harloff is the best interviewer. Not asking about the most recent events but about a person’s whole life and career. He really tries to get to know a person. Everyone needs to listen!
