Lorenza Izzo, who plays Pilar Herrera on AMC’s Feed the Beast, talks about dealing with grief, sampling food on set and the budding friendship between Pilar and “The Tooth Fairy.”
Q: You’ve appeared in quite a lot of horror productions. Was it nice to work on something different?
A: I think it happened circumstantially that I ended up doing a lot of horror because that was kind of how I got into the industry. I do love the genre, and I didn’t want to separate myself from it, but I was really looking forward to going for other types of storytelling at some point. I was really excited when this came along and that I actually got it. My part was originally written for an older Latin woman, but when I came in, I convinced them it had to be me. I’m just so lucky that all of these elements happened for me to be able to do this.

The Chilean actress of horror film fame is stretching her acting chops beyond screaming at the top of her lungs by delving into the equally as scary world of restaurants. Here, she lets us in through the kitchen door and drops info on the show before its premiere this Sunday.
What’s the deal behind your new AMC show, Feed the Beast?
It tells the story of two best friends and one of them is coming out of jail the character that Jim Sturgess plays. These two buddies grew up in the Bronx and one of them is a sommelier and one of them is a chef and they had a restaurant which one of them blew up and now they’re trying to start it up again in the hopes of starting a nice new environment and to pay back the money they owe to the mob. So there’s a mob element to the show, there’s a dysfunctional family dramatic element to the show and then there’s a restaurant business element to the show which I think is such a cool interesting mix of themes to watch on TV.
How does your character come into the story?
I play a Cuban born in Harlem named Pilar Herrera. She’s kind of a crappy waitress who doesn’t really know what she’s going about in life. She’s a hopeless romantic and that’s always an interesting thing for me to approach because I think there’s very few of those left in the world we live in, right? I mean come on it’s 2016 in the world of Tinder and Facebook and all these incredibly insane apps and she’s just truly looking for love and the ways she goes about it may not be that morally correct. She’s also kind of a weirdo, she’s a little big quirky, she’s a goofball; she doesn’t really know much about social cues. She’s the kind of girl that if you’re in the restroom peeing she’ll just walk in and start talking to you and has no idea that that’s not okay.

“I’m sort of getting some redemption, aren’t I?” says 26-year-old Chilean actress Lorenza Izzo.
Izzo was born in Santiago, but moved to Atlanta at age 12 while her dad was getting his Ph.D. at Georgia Tech. “When I first moved to Atlanta I had a really strong accent, and I got bullied like hell,” she recalls while sitting at Irving Farm Coffee, around the corner from the Gramercy apartment she rented for her stay in New York. “It was awful. I got over my accent pretty fast, thanks to ‘Blue Crush.’ I started watching that movie and I got obsessed with Kate Bosworth. I had no idea she was Australian — to me she was American and it was all I needed to know.”
Oddly enough, she’s frequently cast as an American, a fact tinged with a certain sweetness in light of her bullies. “It’s such a payback isn’t it?” she grins.
On Sunday, she joins David Schwimmer and Jim Sturgess in AMC’s “Feed the Beast,” which follows two best friends in their attempt to open a restaurant in the Bronx, in the midst of cleaning up their lives. WWD chatted with Izzo about landing the role, meeting her director husband, and what she wore to be crowned “best dressed” in high school.
