Actress says some of the scripts she's read have been so poor they're 'insulting'
Daryl Hannah has spoken candidly about the poor quality of roles she’s been offered since her career-reviving turn in Kill Bill.
The actress, who made her name in 80s classics such as Splash, Wall Street and Blade Runner, landed her most high-profile role in a decade when Quentin Tarantino cast her as one-eyed assassin Elle Driver in the 2003-4 martial arts two-parter.
Despite winning critical acclaim for her performance, Hannah has now revealed that Kill Bill failed to boost her career long-term, saying that the roles she has been offered since have been “mostly crap”.
Asked if this bothers her, Hannah told the Sunday Times: “Not really, because I’ve been working for a long time and, to a certain extent, I’m satiated. I’m not ambitious or desperate to be working all the time, because I have a lot of other interests and creative outlets. But, at the same time, it’s insulting when you read a piece of crap and you’re like, ‘Is this really what it’s come down to? Thanks a lot.'”
Hannah has recently been seen in the Wachowskis’ Netflix series Sense8, which launched on June 9. Netflix has recently ordered a second season of the sci-fi drama, which received a frosty response from critics but has built a cult fanbase online.
