#162: Hari Nef: How To Survive The Dark Side Of The Internet
My guest today is the wonderful Hari Nef: model, actress, activist and first trans woman signed to IMG Worldwide, one of the biggest model management firms in the world. She has graced the covers of publications such as Elle UK, Love Magazine and Interview, and has appeared in editorials in Vogue and Wonderland Magazine, among others. She may be currently best known for her role in the Emmy award-winning series TRANSPARENT. Hari currently lives in LA and is currently starring in the Gucci Bloom fragrance campaign alongside Dakota Johnson and Petra Collins.
Most recently Hari has starred in black comedy thriller Assassination Nation (also starring Suki Waterhouse) which is out now in UK cinemas. It is about a group of best friends live in a world of selfies, emojis, snaps and sexts. But when their town of Salem is besieged by a massive data hack, resulting in half the citizens’ private info spewed into the public view, the community descends into anarchy. The Times have called it "The Crucible for the Instagram era" and critics at The Guardian have said it "feels like the product of a one-night stand between Spring Breakers and The Purge."
In this episode we chat about the film, dealing with internet storms, how to follow your gut when choosing which projects to work on and why she loves working on thrillers that centre around social media.
Hope you enjoy!
