Severance Shocking Finale
On the eve of Severance’s season finale, which started streaming today and contains both massive revelations and maddening cliffhangers,
Britt Lower tells The Daily Beast that landing the part of Helly over “bigger names” was a “fall-to-my-knees-with-gratitude moment.”

Lower also shares her reaction to the huge reveal about her “Innie” character’s “Outie” identity—to use the show’s idiosyncratic parlance—that opens the final episode.

Helly decides to essentially take down her own company when it’s her turn to speak.
