Chloe is a psychological thriller that follows Becky Green (Erin Doherty), who is obsessed with stalking her childhood friend Chloe Fairbourne’s (Poppy Gilbert) perfectly curated social media presence. Chloe’s charmed life, adoring husband, and circle of high-achieving friends are always just a click away, and Becky can’t resist peering into a world that contrasts so starkly with her own, as she cares for her mother, who has early onset dementia. When Chloe suddenly dies, Becky assumes a new identity and infiltrates the enviable lives of Chloe’s closest friends to find out what happened to her. Through her alter-ego Sasha, Becky becomes a powerful, transgressive heroine; a popular, well-connected “someone” with a life–and loves–that are far more exciting and addictive than the “no-one” she is as Becky. However, the pretense soon obscures and conflates reality, and she discovers Chloe’s real life had not been nearly as perfect as it was portrayed online. As Becky gets deeper into her con, and Chloe’s inner circle, she risks losing herself completely in the game she is playing.


Criticólogos:

Brandon. Let me talk about Josh, in your opinion, why did he let her on, why he did cave into what she was trying to do?

Brandon Micheal Hall:

I think I think because Josh is very infatuated by who Becky is and the game that she’s playing, not only does he has a very emotional connection with her, but he also wants to see how this is going to play out for her. And then in a side sense as well, he wants to be the safe haven for her. He’s constantly reminding her to like, hey, watch this. Watch out for this. Watch this trap here. But also gives her the space to do what she wants to do and not judge her in the process. So I think the reason why he doesn’t give her up is because he likes her. At that, the ultimate core of it, he actually really likes her. 

Criticólogos:

Pippa let’s talk about Livia, in your opinion that that Livia was being naive, was giving her too much credit for what she was she was selling with her story?

Pippa Bennett-Warner:

I mean, I think yes and no. I think, Alison, I had a conversation in prep about how Libya has never had any successful female relationships. And I think that’s why she’s all in at the beginning with this friendship with Sasha. She wants to aspire. She wants to prove to herself that she can do it. She can have female friends. Maybe she is a little bit naive, but I think she. But I also just think she’s just but I also think she’s kind of quite taken with this woman who’s come into her life and is is sort of making that transition to having another female friendship really easy. 

Criticólogos:

What do you expect people to take away for the story?

Pippa Bennett-Warner:

I think that’s I mean, I think we’ve said that it opens up a lot of conversations about how one approaches using social media. The good side, the bad side. It’s not all bad. It’s not all good. And I also think there’s something really relatable in Becky’s use of. Social media. I mean, that people will go, Oh my God, that’s what I do. You know, they might kind of like he said earlier, but the mirror shines a bit a mirror on people which will either be uncomfortable or comfortable. 

And I think either is good. You know, I don’t think this is a show where you should be walk. There’s no sort of yellow brick road at the end. There’s no bow tied securely. I think you should. I think if it leaves you feeling a bit uncomfortable, then we did our job. 

Brandon Micheal Hall:

No. Pippa hit it right on the head. That’s exactly what we want to take, what we want people to take away and also to feel at the very end of the show, at the end of the series is that we want you to really question how social media affects your life individually.
