Hollywood veteran Christina Ricci is no stranger to edgy roles, but says her latest incarnation as Jazz Age icon Zelda Fitzgerald is her most nerve-racking venture yet. Here, she talks to Lucy Pavia about full-frontals, industry politics and keeping it real

If you don’t know much about 20s icon and the ‘first American flapper’ Zelda Fitzgerald, you soon will. Not only are there two Hollywood biopics about the Jazz Age writer and socialite in the pipeline, but Christina Ricci is bringing Zelda’s turbulent life story to the small screen, too.

Ricci got the idea for her new seriesZ: The Beginning Of Everything, which she both executive produces and stars in as Zelda, after reading a biography that sheds fresh light on the woman so often referred to as ‘the wife of The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald’. The book indicates Fitzgerald may have pinched some of Zelda’s writing without credit and calls into question whether she was mentally ill. Ricci, who has been acting for over a quarter of a century, says she’s never felt this nervous about a project. ‘I’ve never really cared,’ she says from her home in New York, ‘but I’m so invested. This [show] means the most to me.’

Being in front of a camera has been the norm for Ricci since she was ten years old. Her breakout role, aged 11, as Wednesday Addams made her a 90s Gothic heroine. She went on to star inNow And ThenandCasper,then successfully transitioned to smart indie roles, scoring a Golden Globe nomination in 1999 forThe Opposite Of Sex. More recently she’s taken Emmy-nominated guest spots on TV (Grey’s Anatomy), as well as starring in the short-lived air hostess dramaPan Am,where she met and fell in love with camera technician James Heerdegen. They’re now married and live in New York with their two-year-old son Freddie, who briefly interrupts our interview when he wakes up early from a nap…

Why the sudden interest in Zelda Fitzgerald?‘Zelda has a particular mix of things that are very appealing to an actress. Dramatically [her story is] extremely rich, but in a way it’s also quite glam. And there’s the question of whether she was, in fact, mentally ill at all. People referred to her as having an odd way of speaking and having ideas that tripped over each other, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she was mentally ill. I would be mentally ill if that was the case!’

We weren’t expecting the full-frontal scene in episode four.‘I was just saying to someone, “Well at least they included full-frontal nudity – thank god that’s in there!” It wasn’t such a big deal to me because I had a merkin on. It just feels like wearing underwear… fur underwear!’

You’ve been in the industry for over 25 years. What’s the biggest change you’ve noticed?‘It really is constantly evolving.
