Evan Rachel Wood needed two months of musical training just to prepare for the three-month shoot of the HBO miniseries "Mildred Pierce," where she played the teenage and adult version of Veda, the evil and manipulative -- but immensely talented -- daughter of Kate Winslet's title character.
That work is paying off, as there's a good chance that she'll get a nomination -- and be the favorite -- for an Emmy in the outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or movie category. She is also on the ballot for a guest actress nod for playing Queen Spohie-Anne Leclerq on HBO's "True Blood," which she continues to play in its just-started fourth season.
Recently, Wood sat with Zap2it to talk about preparing for "Pierce," the bummed-out mood she was in while she was filming it, and why it seems that her roles mirror her well-documented life off-camera.
