Gypsy Rose's First Cosplayer Boyfriend on 'The Act' Is Based on a Real Person

By

We are low-key living for Hulu's new series, The Act, the fictionalized drama based on the true story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard. And it isn't just that the real story is so bizarre we can't look away; The Act, which is co-created by Michelle Dean, the writer to whom the Blanchards owe their fame, is so well done and so well cast, it might be the best show of 2019 so far.

While the first two episodes of the series mainly served as an expositional setup for viewers to understand the torment Dee Dee (played by the show-stopping Patricia Arquette) put Gypsy Rose (a stunning Joey King) through, the latest episode, entitled "Two Wolverines," starts to give us a glimpse into the mind of the girl who would later go on to murder her mother.
