Or that must have been what it was like for her to be in that stairwell by herself.”
Michael Stuhlbarg, Juliette Binoche, Dane DeHaan, Olivia DeJonge, Rosemarie DeWitt, Tim Guinee, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sophie Turner, Vincent Vermignon, Odessa Young and Parker Posey also star in the chilling series.
The first three episodes, written and executive produced by Campos and co-showrunner Maggie Cohn, premiere May 5 on HBO Max.
