Here we are, already almost halfway through the first of the New Year, can you believe it? I guess it’s true what they say, that time flies when you’re anticipating the newest Decider Woman Crush Wednesday (okay, well, it should be what people say)! This week we’re celebrating a wonderful young woman who has consistently put out incredible work on screens big and small as soon as she burst onto the scene less than a decade ago. She can act, she can sing, she can do basically anything, give it up for this week’s WCW, the magnificent Madeline Brewer!
WHO’S THAT GAL: Madeline Brewer
WHY WE’RE CRUSHING: Brewer stars in upcoming music comedy-drama The Ultimate Playlist of Noise, a Hulu Original film that premieres on the platform this Friday, January 15th. Marcus (Keean Johnson), an audio-obsessed high school senior, learns he must undergo brain surgery that will render him deaf, and decides to seize control of his fate by going on a road trip to record (with the assistance of Brewer’s struggling musician, Wendy) the “Ultimate Playlist of Noise”.
The film has been advertised and highlighted by publications like Variety, Deadline, us here at Decider, and more, so make sure you hop onboard and check out Brewer and the rest of the cast’s fantastic work in The Ultimate Playlist of Noise as soon as it drops this week!
WHERE YOU’VE SEEN HER BEFORE: Brewer’s professional onscreen career has been on a roll since the very beginning with her 2013 debut as Tricia Miller throughout seven episodes in the first season of Emmy Award-winning hit comedy-drama Netflix series Orange is the New Black. From there, the actress has only continued to work up a storm of diverse and compelling credits that include television series like Stalker, Hemlock Grove, Black Mirror, The Deleted, and Anthem: Homunculus, as well as movies like 2017 drama Hedgehog, 2017 drama Flesh and Blood, 2018 psychological horror Braid, 2018 psychological horror Cam, 2019 sci-fi action Captive State, and 2019 drama Now Is Everything.
It was in 2017 that Brewer began the role for which is probably best known, as one-eyed handmaid Janine Lindo in Emmy Award-winning Hulu Original dystopian tragedy series The Handmaid’s Tale. The actress also gained further notoriety playing Dawn in the critically acclaimed 2019 crime drama film Hustlers. With a seemingly never-ending stream of hit after hit, Brewer has already built an extremely impressive filmography and reputation for herself which will surely only continue to thrive and grow as the years go on.
WHERE YOU’LL SEE HER AGAIN: Brewer is wasting no time in making her mark on the New Year, already with two projects expected for 2021 releases. The first is the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale, in which she will once again play Janine, and the second is a horror film called Separation about a young girl who finds solace in her artist father and the ghost of her dead mother, and which also features Rupert Friend, Brian Cox, Mamie Gummer, among other terrific talent.
