The Last of Us, Yellowjackets and But I’m a Cheerleader star Melanie Lynskey has addressed her status as a queer icon and confirmed that she’s all about “pushing the homosexual agenda”.
Certified ‘mother’ to the LGBTQ+ community Lynskey is currently starring as Shawna Shipman in Showtime’s teen cannibal thriller Yellowjackets, about a girls’ high school soccer team struggling to survive in the wilderness after their plane crashes.
Split between two timelines, the show boasts an excellent young cast playing the team as teenagers and iconic names including Lynskey, Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis among the actors playing their adult versions.
With bitter rivalries, stomach-churning gore and sapphic storylines in abundance, Yellowjackets is keeping fans and critics on the edge of their seats. The show currently holds a 98 per cent fresh rating on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.
