Skimm'd from the Couch: Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini

“Persistence wins,” the stars of Netflix’s “Dead to Me” told us during a live episode of Skimm’d From The Couch


Both Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini started their careers when they were really young. Christina shot her first commercial before she could walk and talk. And Linda’s first big role was in college, on “Freaks and Geeks.” They’ve been everywhere since then. But if you’ve logged into Netflix in the last week, you might know that they’re now co-starring on Dead to Me. It’s a new series that’s part comedy. Part tragedy. And allll binge-worthy. On the Couch, Christina and Linda talk to us about how Time’s Up has changed the way they negotiate and how they handle not getting a callback. Plus they take a few questions from our live studio audience.

PS: This week’s Skimm Reads is brought to you by … our team. They recommended “Grit” by Angela Duckworth. It’s all about how succeeding takes hustle and, yes, grit. Get it here.
