Exclusive Video Interview: Elizabeth Marvel on Playing Elizabeth Holmes’ Mother in ‘The Dropout’

Hulu’s new limited series The Dropout dramatizes an incredible real-life scandal, one that saw young entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried) pitch a revolutionary new technology that could run hundreds of tests from just one drop of blood. The problem was that it didn’t work, which didn’t stop Elizabeth and her partner Sunny Balwani (Naveen Andrews) from pushing forward to implement it.

Among the extremely talented ensemble is veteran actress Elizabeth Marvel, who is no stranger to the small screen following roles on a number of TV series, including Homeland and House of Cards. Marvel plays Noel Holmes, Elizabeth’s mother, who has come into the spotlight even more since her daughter’s trial has been ongoing.

I had the chance to speak with Marvel about her approach to the role, working with Seyfried and a suite of other great actors, and an underrated TV gem from her past.

You can watch the video below, along with an official summary and where to watch.

Series summary:

Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. Hulu’s limited series “The Dropout,” the story of Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried) and Theranos, is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye?
