If you thought Lizzy Caplan’s magical transformation from Janis Ian in “Mean Girls” to her current role as Virginia Johnson in “Masters of Sex” showed major acting chops, you haven’t seen the best of it.
The 31-year-old was interviewed by Paul F. Tompkin’s for his “Speakeasy” web series, where the comedian asked her to recreate a series of memes. With her face.
After her first (amazing) attempt, Lizzy has an epiphany: “I didn’t go to acting school and I feel like, this may be all I need. I’m learning. I’m learning about my craft. This may be all the acting school I ever needed.”
Actors, take note. Viewers, prepare to be blown away.
