Don’t be surprised if you see Chloe Sevigny walking around with a hatchet. The word on the street is that she is getting very method over her newest role, playing accused murderess Lizzie Borden in an upcoming HBO mini-series. In 1892, Borden screamed for her maid, hysterical that she had found her father’s chopped-up body. While her neighbors tried to comforted her, her mother’s body was found in an upstairs room. Only, many people think Lizzie was the one who wielded the hatchet that killed them herself. She was ultimately acquitted of the crime, but acted suspiciously throughout the investigation and became something of a celebrity during the trial.
So how is Chloe preparing for the role?She’s staying at the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast, of course. Apparently, it’s the same house where the murders took place and guests can enjoy “a breakfast similar to the one the Bordens ate on the morning of the murders, which includes bananas, jonny-cakes, sugar cookies, and coffee.” Fun?
