Lionsgate released a new clip from “Bombshell” where we can see Margot Robbie and Kate McKinnon’s character in a new scene. A new on set interview with Kate has just been released as well, where she confirms the rumors about her character being a closeted gay woman and a behind the scenes video with footage from the set. You can watch all the videos in our video archive by clicking on the thumbnails below!
Kate is gracing the cover of the 50th Anniversary Issue of Interview Magazine. She answered questions from Seth Meyers, Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron, Bill Hader, and much more. Our gallery has been updated with the amazing photoshoot they did with Kate and you can read the full interview in the press library. You can buy a copy of the magazine here!
Somewhere beneath her panoply of personas is the real Kate McKinnon. For as long as Saturday Night Live’s most beloved star has been in our lives, she has retained an air of mystery that serves her well the other six days of the week—and when vanishing into the madcap characters that have made her a fan favorite since she started on the show in 2012. Behind every funhouse-mirror weirdo she creates, there’s the girl who grew up on Long Island, impersonating teachers to fit in with her classmates. For every go-for-the-jugular political impression she nails, there’s the 35-year-old openly gay New Yorker, who brought her feminist streak to roles in Ghostbusters (2016), Rough Night (2017), and The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018). And for every Emmy-earning (she has two), zeitgeist-capturing, show-stopping portrayal of Hillary Clinton—or Ms. Rafferty, the unhinged victim of an alien abduction—there’s the everyday woman who likes to sprinkle cumin on her avocado toast and who would prefer to be home with her cat, Nino. In celebration of our 50th year, in an issue devoted to ripping off a half-century of the magazine’s archives, we photographed McKinnon, who will next appear in the Fox News drama Bombshell, and then as Elizabeth Holmes in an upcoming Hulu series, in homage to some of our most iconic images. For the interview, it only made sense to have the master of impersonation answer questions from a whole cast of (very famous) characters.
Kate visited Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to promote her latest film ‘Yesterday‘. She discussed the movie with Seth and she also talked about the Democratic debates that happened over the last two days. She ended up doing her Elizabeth Warren impression and she also did a new one: Marianne Williamson. As usual, she was a delight and so funny! Watch the interview below and see high quality photos in the gallery!
Tonight, Kate McKinnon attended the ‘Yesterday’ UK Premiere held at Odeon Luxe Leicester Square in London, England. She looked gorgeous in a black dress from Akris. Later on, she also attended the after party! You can watch some videos from the red carpet below and over 140 high-quality pictures have been added to the gallery!
A new video with behind the scenes interviews featuring the Yesterday cast has been released today. Kate appears briefly to talk about the movie. You can watch it below and check out screen captures in our gallery!
Kate and Emily were interviewed by Entertainment Weekly to talk about ‘Heads Will Roll’. They talked about how the project started, how they decided who would play the queen and more. Read the full interview below!
Kate McKinnon is taking her comedy to Audible. Starting today, the Saturday Night Live star and her sister, Emily Lynne, can be heard on Heads Will Roll, an audio-only original scripted comedy that plays out over 10 episodes.
McKinnon plays the evil Queen Mortuana of the Night Realm, while Lynne takes over as her ditzy raven, JoJo. The duo receive a prophecy about a peasant uprising, so they go on the search for the Shard of Acquiescence to help stave off the rebellion.
Crazy, right? Here, EW checked in with McKinnon and actress/writer Lynne (Our Cartoon President) about the comedy’s evolution, how they pulled it together, and whether there was any real argument over who would play the evil queen.
