Christina Ricci has been the face of on-screen oddballs and outsiders for the past 30 years—but her fight to keep playing those characters has been an uphill struggle. “I think we’re at the point…generally as an audience, where we can find characters interesting that we don’t see ourselves in, at all,” Ricci says. “You don’t have to see yourself in somebody to be fascinated, interested, or root for someone. I’m really happy we’re at that place, because I really spent years arguing that point.”

In this episode of “In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast,” Ricci takes us through the twists and turns of her career, all the way up to Showtime’s dark drama, “Yellowjackets,” for which she’s earning Emmys buzz for the role of unhinged show tunes enthusiast, Misty.
