Mumbai, October 30 (SocialNews.XYZ) Ophelia Lovibond, who plays the character of feminist magazine Baron Joyce in the comedy series “Minx,” opened up about the show’s premise.
“Minx” features the story of Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond), a feminist who, in the 1970s, aspires to start her own women’s magazine in Los Angeles.
Ophelia said in a statement: “‘Minx’ is about the unlikely couple of two very different individuals, one of whom runs a porn publishing house, who is Doug and the other who is kind of well-meaning, but a little pretentious feminist who wants to put out a feminist magazine.”
The series explores Joyce’s unusual partnership with a low-rent publisher (played by Jake Johnson) who aims to revolutionize the publishing industry with the first-ever erotic magazine for women.
“‘Minx’ shows that they’re joining forces. And you see the consequences of this unlikely marriage of convenience. Honestly, I knew from the moment I read the script that I hadn’t even finished the script It was only a few pages in that I would be incredibly lucky to be a part of it,” she added.
Sharing exciting insights into her character Joyce, Ophelia said, “I would describe Joyce as someone who has very particular ideals, and they don’t always align with what’s achievable. I think the comedy of the show comes from the kind of a chasm between her idea of what she wants and what she can achieve.”
She added, “I hope viewers will understand her meaning of trying to help people. And sometimes she goes about it the wrong way. She’s very strident, but that’s because she’s been redone by people, and she’s a little jaded, and you see her learning not to let that interrupt her faith in people. But I hope they realize that she’s trying to do a good thing, albeit in a somewhat clumsy way.”
“Minx”, created by Ellen Rapoport, is set to stream on the OTT platform Lionsgate Play from November 4.
