Carrie Coon found it comforting when she learned that she was cast as Gloria Burgle in Season 3 of Noah Hawley’s “Fargo.”

“It was very reassuring to know … that I was about to work with another creator that’s interested in women being complicated, having depth and having a real story arc,” Coon told Collider when asked about her reaction when she found out that his next TV project after HBO’s “The Leftover” is “Fargo.”

“Noah’s women are so fascinating,” Coon said of what she likes about the writer’s female characters. “When you look at the work that Kirsten Dunst did last season, the discovery of Alison Tolman out of Chicago, or bringing Jean Smart in and giving her that grounded and powerful presence in the series, that’s the only kind of work I want to do, as an actress.”

“The other stuff has been done. I’m not interested in doing that,” Coon continued. “I’m not interested in being an angry girlfriend, a malicious wife, or a prop for a story. I’m just not interested in that. I’m spoiled rotten, completely.”

Although viewers may find a few qualities of Tolman’s Molly Solverson in Coon’s Gloria, Hawley said that the latter is far different from the former.

“Gloria, when we meet her, is already reeling from the rug being pulled out from under her,” Hawley told The Hollywood Reporter. “Her husband has left her for another man, she’s been told that she’s no longer chief of police at the end of the year, so she’s sort of both chief and not chief at the same time. And then, her stepfather is killed. So she’s already on the defensive [unlike Molly when viewers first met her], she’s already trying to cope with a world that doesn’t make sense and the crime only exacerbates that.”

In Season 3, episode 2 of “Fargo,” according to the synopsis for the hour, Gloria deals with the aftermath of the murder of his stepdad, Ennis Stussy (Scott Hylands).

“Fargo” Season 3, episode 2, titled “The Principle of Restricted Choice,” airs on Wednesday, April 26 at 10 p.m. EDT on FX.
