Mena Suvari reminisces about her queer role on “Six Feet Under” at the “Transparent” premiere

Mena Suvari has played a number of queer roles, including American Horror Story, Hemingway’s Garden of Eden and the Lifetime movie Stalkers, but it all began with her wooing of Lauren Ambrose on Six Feet Under. Transparent creator Jill Soloway is the one who wrote that role for Mena, and the two reunited on the red carpet at the Transparent premiere this past week while we chatted with Mena about how that part changed her life.
