Why we love Paz de la Huerta
Paz de la Huerta has got to have one of the longest names in the business of film and television. In fact, she’s got to have one of the longest names ever. The word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is 34 characters long. Paz’s full name – Maria de la Paz Elizabeth Sofia Adriana de la Huerta – is 43. Count them, if you want. Or just take our word for it, seeing as we counted them for this pointless comparison and don’t feel like we have accomplished anything even remotely meaningful today.
Anyway, with a name like that Paz is clearly a born and bred New Yorker. Yeah. She was a young starter, beginning acting at the age of four having been to a children’s acting school. If you want some more relatively pointless information, her first name was pronounced “Path” as a child (which is the proper Spanish way), but when she grew up she changed the way it was said to “Paz”.
And now she’s all grown up she’s started making waves on Sky Atlantic. See what we did there? She plays Lucy Danziger in the new drama Boardwalk Empire, who is Nucky Thompson’s mistress. And yes, that does mean she has a few sex scenes. For the few of you who are strangely still reading this, she’s appeared in The Limits of Control and is credited as ‘Nude’, as she plays a woman who is either always completely nude or just wearing a transparent coat. Surely you’re not still here expecting more info?
