The Independent’s Amanda Whiting writes an in depth look at the medical examination scene that takes place in the morgue in the recent Shining Girls adaptation. Whiting looks at leading actress Elisabeth Moss and how she tackles the increasingly intricate role of Kirby Mazrachi in this Independent feature on Shining Girls.
Based on Lauren Beukes’s hit 2013 novel, the darkly mysterious Shining Girls sees Moss play Kirby, a mousy newspaper researcher who survives a brutal attack by a man who was never caught. The incident, which occurs six years before the series picks up, leaves her psychologically and physically scarred.
