“Her celebrity role model should be Kim Kardashian,” Chomet said. “She’s about show and status and those things. My character is much more grounded, maybe because I work at Olive Garden and am back living with my mom.”

“There’s a disconnect between our struggles and our fascination with wealth, the harder things get,” she said. “It’s like in the Depression, but now there are people pretending that all this isn’t happening to them, so they sport Louis Vuitton purses or fake ones.”

The cast is rounded out by Pedro Bayon, who plays the property’s caretaker. “Jos-B,” he said, is “like Pitbull or Steven Spielberg. He likes to think that he’s in charge.”
