The season finale of Little Fires Everywhere was released on Wednesday, and it was fiery, intense and emotional! It was a really good ending to the season/series, with lots of twists that were both satisfying and not – one of the things I really enjoyed about the show is that the characters and their decisions are not always completely ‘good’ or ‘bad’, they’re dynamic and layered. Reese continues to surprise and amaze me with her performances and I was blown away by her in this episode. Her scenes towards the end of the episode were particularly impressive, we’ve never seen her like that before. What an actress HD screencaptures from the episode have been added to our Gallery:

Comments Off on “Little Fires Everywhere” 1×06: ‘The Uncanny’ – AnnaSophia Robb on playing the younger Elena
Episode 6 – ‘The Uncanny’ – of Little Fires Everywhere was a flashback episode to show us the backstories of Elena and Mia. The performances of AnnaSophia Robb and Tiffany Boone who played the younger Elena and Mia were exceptional, particularly in the way they captured the mannerisms of their older counterparts. The episode also helped us to better understand Elena and empathise with her. Read about how AnnaSophia Robb prepared for the role below:
How AnnaSophia Robb Perfected Reese Witherspoon’s Voice on ‘Little Fires Everywhere’
From the moment AnnaSophia Robb received the email to play Reese Witherspoon’s younger character on Little Fires Everywhere, she knew she had to have it. Robb stars as the younger version of Witherspoon’s character Elena, a wealthy white woman with three kids, in episodes 5 and 6 of Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere.
Based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 book of the same title, Little Fires Everywhere follows two mothers in Shaker Heights, Ohio, in the 1990s, whose lives are upturned after a story about a young single mother who abandons her baby at a fire station rocks their small town. The sixth episode of the miniseries, which Witherspoon and Kerry Washington executive produce, explores the lives of Elena and Mia (Washington) before they were mothers with teenage children in Shaker. Robb plays Elena at two stages of her life: The first is in 1970s Paris before a wide-eyed Elena returns to Shaker and starts a family. The second is a decade later when Elena, now with three kids, learns that she’s pregnant with a fourth and must pivot the life she pictured for herself once again.
“As an actor, it was a fun role to play, because I’m not a mother,” Robb says. “It was challenging in certain ways. It was a nerve wracking experience, but it was also one of the most gratifying things I’ve done.”
Ahead, Robb talked to StyleCaster about the key advice Witherspoon gave her on the set of Little Fires Everywhere, what it was like to work on a show that was created and written by women and what she learned about her own from a privilege from the series, which explores race, class and motherhood. “I think fostering an environment where nobody feels silenced is super important. That was definitely present on this set,” Robb says.
Reese appeared on Jameela Jamil’s ‘I Weigh’ podcast today. This is an incredibly open interview with Reese talking about the media interest in her life, her mental health, and being in therapy, and then the more general topics of females in science/healthcare, representation of race/gender/other minorities, and why she turned to producing. It’s almost an hour long and worth listening to all of it:
What started with a social media post has become a movement, and now a podcast. On I Weigh, Jameela Jamil challenges society’s definition of worth through weight by asking different thought-leaders, performers, activists, influencers, and friends about how they are working through their past shames to find where their value truly lies. With hilarious and vulnerable conversations, I Weigh will amplify and empower diverse voices in an accessible way to celebrate progress, not perfection.
Reese Witherspoon joins Jameela to talk about how instagram helped her control her own narrative, struggling with postpartum depression, the red carpet advice Meryl Streep once shared, how “funny doesn’t sag,” and building her own media company.
HD screencaptures from the 5th episode of Little Fires Everywhere have been added to our Gallery today. I really loved Reese in this episode – what a fantastic performance! I loved seeing a more relaxed Elena (initially, anyway!) with Jamie, and Reese’s chemistry with Luke Bracey was mesmerising. Reese is really bringing her range in this (again).
