has already made her mark on “The X-Files
” thanks to her iconic performances as under-the-bed villain Mrs. Peacock in “Home
” and fortune teller Madame Zelma in “Clyde Bruckman
’s Final Repose,” but her latest role(s) in this week’s “Plus One
” could make her mark on the Emmys. As twins Judy Poundstone and Chucky Poundstone and their two dopplegangers, Konoval effortlessly portrays four complicated, quirky characters who have a telepathic link. And, oh yeah, did we mention Chucky just happens to be a man?
As we know, the Emmys love when actors take on multiple roles — just ask Tatiana Maslany
who prevailed for portraying all those clones in “Orphan Black
” (2016). Might Konoval earn her first career nomination at the 2018 Emmys for playing this gender-bending group of doppelgangers?
