Paz de la Huerta is a complicated woman. Her character on “Boardwalk Empire” is no different.
De la Huerta gave some insight into her childhood, much of which she spent living with her aunt in a loft in New York’s SoHo district.
“Lucy is a very complicated woman — like most women — and a lot of the time she was very lost in her relationship with Nucky, She was in love with him, but she didnt know how to be herself in that relationship fully and have him love her. So sometimes she would use her sexuality to protect herself or to get what she wanted. Not that shes not a sexy character — and in Season One of course its a part of her, but audiences are going to see more of the real her. Its going to be very different.”
