Mackenzie gave an interview to Vulture discussing about race, money and the value of having difficult conversations. Below you can read the whole interview. Enjoy!

A long with a duct-taped copy of Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch, Mackenzie Davis toted a glass bottle of green water around with her on set of Halt and Catch Fire. “Recently I was like, ‘I smell bad,’” Davis said as she took a swig. She used to put droplets of chlorophyll into her water, but when she stopped, she noticed her body odor, so she started up again. “If you drink it for like a week and a half, you smell like sweet cut grass,” she said. “It also increases cellular respiration and allows you to have more oxygen in your bloodstream, but I can only vouch for the sweet cut grass.”

We’re lounging on a couch in Donna’s (played by her co-star, Kerry Bishé) living room, which has been retrofitted in a palette of salmon pink to reflect the interior-decorating tastes of the early 1990s. Davis is taking a break between scenes while shooting the series finale of a show she started on five years ago playing Cameron Howe, the coding savant who can best relate to people through technology. Since then, Davis’s career has moved forward at a fast clip with roles in That Awkward MomentThe Martian, a beloved episode of Black Mirror, and an upcoming part in Blade Runner 2049. Four seasons later, perhaps the most concrete acknowledgment of her ascent (as well as a changing industry) is this: AMC offered her and Bishé a salary commensurate to their male co-stars Lee Pace and Scoot McNairy for the final season.

Davis, 30, who studied English at McGill University in Montreal and didn’t pursue acting professionally until she graduated, maintains the demeanor of someone who thinks of herself as a lifelong student. She loves books, ideas, and the cultural conversation. So when I bring up The Martian, where she played engineer Mindy Park, she knows immediately what I’m talking about. “Are you talking about the whitewashing thing?” she says. “I’ve actually wanted somebody to ask me about this.” What follows is an engrossing, thoughtful conversation about the things most people don’t like to talk about: money, race, and feminism.

My understanding is that the Halt and Catch Fire cast had wine readings at Lee Pace’s house. How did that come about?
Lee started it, and I’m so grateful that he did. We didn’t have table reads for the show because of our schedule, which is hard, especially because we don’t work with the whole cast every scene, so you don’t get the whole shape of the episode or pick up on dramatic subtleties if you’re working in isolation like that. So we’d go to Lee’s house and make dinner and drink wine and just have a table read and bitch about what we needed to. If somebody had to complain, it was really nice, because you got to hear other people’s point of views about your character. You’d go, “I’m super frustrated over this!” and they’d go, “That’s not how we experience you at all,” which can be helpful and not helpful because you’re like, “All that matters is whatever this person thinks of themselves.” But sometimes it’s nice to have a read from somebody without your particular sensitivities for your character voice. It just bonded us so well. We’re not from L.A., we don’t know anybody, it was super lonely, and then we had this thing every Sunday where we got together, read the script, worked it out, and had a laugh and got drunk. It really felt like we came here in this concentrated theater camp for four months every year and devoted ourselves to this thing and went our separate ways. I think the show would have been so unbelievably different if we hadn’t done that. Read More

Mackenzie Davis is lying next to me in a bed at the Bowery Hotel in downtown New York. She has taken off her pleated skirt to get a bit more comfortable and is uncorking a bottle of white wine with the precision of a master sommelier. We swore we wouldn’t drink—as a rule, it’s best not to mix alcohol and interviews—but then again, this interview isn’t exactly normal for either of us.

A native of Vancouver, Davis studied English at McGill University in Montreal—which is where we met and quickly became friends. Even then, her dream was to make movies, and she spent much of those earlier years honing her craft with secret acting classes and in school plays. Shortly after graduating, she moved to New York and stepped into the revolving door that’s so familiar to aspiring stars: auditions, in person and on tape; meetings and callbacks and screen tests; and the inevitable, “They decided to go with someone a little more established.”
