“The umlaut isn't on my birth certificate. I had this book as a child called Chloë and Maude, and there was an umlaut on the e, and I said, I want that! It's a little flair. Just to confuse people even more. People always come up to me and say, Oh, you're Chloë Se-VIG-ny, right? Sevigny. Number seven, letter e.”
— From Esquire, January 2009
“Because I’m fortunate to have a wonderful family, a comfortable home, some people see me as… privileged. They think that I’m self-centered, that I take things for granted, but that couldn’t be any further from the truth. What you see on that tape is me fighting for my life, and the only thing going through my mind was will I ever see my family again. I did whatever I had to do to survive!”
– Christine Hartwell
Hope everyone was able to tune in to Chloë Sevigny guest starring on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on NBC last Wednesday — if you weren’t, you can catch the episode online on NBC.com. Meanwhile, here’s our summary of the episode, 13.18 “Valentine’s Day”, beginning with a quick recap:
Video chatting from Hong Kong, Christine Hartwell’s (Chloë Sevigny) husband is forced to watch as Christine is brutally raped and kidnapped from their New York home. The police are able to capture her when she is sent by her assailants to pick up the ransom money, but when she is questioned about what happened, her unusual behavior and the holes in her story quickly get the detectives of the SVU suspicious. As the evidence starts to mount up against her it soon becomes clear there’s much more to both Christine and her story than she is telling, and she’s eventually charged with coercion, obstruction and filing a false report. But even as the evidence against Christine begins to look overwhelming the case is anything but open-and-shut when not only does Christine’s blindly devoted husband get her a top defense attorney, Christine secretly manages to befriend one of the jurors.
SVU isn’t one of my favorite shows personally, but I still thoroughly enjoyed seeing Chloë on it. I’ve been waiting for Chloë to land more mainstream roles and productions like this (not to mention just seeing her onscreen again), and she did not disappoint as the seductive and duplicitous Christine.
247 site-exclusive HD screen captures of Chloë’s appearance on the show have been uploaded to the gallery. Enjoy! :)
