From a pious Christian wife in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” to an insecure emotional teenager in “Euphoria,” or an outspoken, snarky daughter in “The White Lotus,” Sydney Sweeney has played all sorts of women. And, having had a hand in crafting just about all of them, the actress wants other young actresses to be able to have the same opportunity.
In her latest film “Reality,” now streaming on Max, Sweeney teamed up with director and screenwriter Tina Satter. The movie is an adaptation of the FBI interrogation transcript of Reality Winner, a 25-year-old former American intelligence specialist who leaked classified information about Russian interference in the 2016 election campaign.
"We have writers now that are writing incredible female lead stories," Sweeney tells "UnWrapped." "And it's important to be able to have those females be empowered through it as well.”
