EXCLUSIVE: Having just appeared in last night’s Season 2 finale of Mr. Robot, Carly Chaikin is boarding Theresa Bennett’s indie film F*cking People. The pic follows a young woman (Noel Wells) and her friends, who are struggling with both a failing business and love lives. Chaikin plays a strong-willed music manager and the young woman’s best friend who finds herself having relationship struggles of her own. Ash Christian is producing. Mason Novick and Michelle Knudsen executive produce.
On the USA Network series Mr. Robot, which was up for Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmys on Sunday, Chaikin is known for her emotionally raw performance as Darlene, the hacker-leader sister of protag Elliot Alderson (Emmy winner Rami Malek). Spoiler warning: This past season, Darlene has weathered quite a storm. She killed another woman with a taser, stole millions from a major conglom, watched her boyfriend die in a shootout, and was captured by the FBI.
Chaikin is repped by Paradigm, Berwick & Kovacik, and Stone, Genow.
