A new interview with Kirsten, to promote the upcoming Fargo season, has been published by Star Tribune.

“Most people probably know me from ‘Spider-Man’ or ‘Bring It On’ and that’s it, but I’ve been doing independent films for a long time,” said Dunst, whose credits include “Marie Antoinette,” “The Virgin Suicides” and “Melancholia.” “I can do a comedy and have fun, or I can tackle a role that really inspires me and allows me to emotionally pour my heart out. As I get older, it’s more important to explore areas I haven’t tapped into yet.”

Her latest role certainly fits that bill. In “Fargo” (9 p.m. Mondays, FX) she plays Peggy Blomquist, a small-town beautician with Hollywood dreams, trapped in a bland marriage to a gullible butcher along the Minnesota-South Dakota border in 1979 — three decades before the events of the show’s premiere season.

When she accidentally runs over a murderer outside a diner in Luverne, Minn., she swallows any sense of guilt and tries to use the incident as an excuse to escape to California, where she imagines both her big-city ambitions and French-influenced wardrobe will blend right in.

Dunst said the role posed a number of new challenges, from memorizing the singsong, rapid-fire dialogue to adjusting to a parade of different bosses.

“One day I worked with three different directors on three different episodes,” said Dunst by phone, after returning from a decompression vacation in Jamaica. “That was the weirdest thing I’ve ever experienced. It’s just not what I’m used to.”
