You may have only recently started recognizing Lizzy Caplan when you see her. She’s quite the chameleon: The free-spirited and somewhat questionable Amy on True Blood? That was Lizzy. The ill-fated Marlena in Cloverfield? That was Lizzy, too. Aron Ralston’s sister Sonja in 127 Hours? Lizzy. Casey Klein on Party Down? Lizzy again. Gena in Bachelorette? You guessed it—Lizzy.
But though she’s just becoming a name to recognize now, she’s steadily been building a career for herself for years. Now, in the hotly anticipated Showtime drama Masters of Sex, she takes center stage as sex pioneer Virginia Johnson with Michael Sheen as Dr. William Masters at her side—and we can’t wait! Check out the trailer here:
Masters of Sex premieres on Showtime this Sunday, so In honor of the occasion, here’s a crash course in everything you need to know about Lizzy.
