Meryl Streep , Laura Dern and more of the ‘ Big Little Lies ’ cast detail the season 2 dynamic and why it works — interviews. While the cast and crew feel luckier than ever to have Streep join their family, she was just as excited — so much so, she didn’t even read the script before accepting the role.

"Meryl is just amazing. To watch her do her craft -- and it really is artistic craft -- we all just went, 'Can you believe it?!'" Nicole tells the UK's Hello! magazine (via the Daily Mail).

"It raises the bar for everyone. I think she elevates the show," Nicole continues. "We have meaty, really great scenes."

Meryl, 69, "has a fantastic character," according to Nicole, who also co-produces the series with Reese. "It's grounded and it's based in something very, very real."

Nicole also admits she didn't see a second season for "Big Little Lies," which was adapted from Liane Moriarty's bestselling book.

"It was through sheer enthusiasm from the fans and my mother saying 'It's too short' that made us realize we had to do more," she explains. "It's amazing to have the fans and the audiences react in the way that they have is incredible. That's why we had to scramble together to get this second series together. Because of the audience's desire."

Opinion: Are Warriors better without Kevin Durant? It's more complicated than that With Durant sidelined for Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, Steph Curry and the Warriors looked more like champions than they have all season. © Provided by USA Today Sports Media Group LLC Stephen Curry scored a game-high 36 points in Game 1. They’ve done it out of necessity. Shorn of the luxury of Durant’s ability to marshal offensive opportunities at will, the Warriors have simply gone back to how things were done before he came along. Speedy ball-movement, seeking an open man. Vigorous intensity.

It didn’t take much for Meryl Streep to sign on for the second season of HBO’s hit show Big Little Lies . In fact, the Oscar winner didn’t even read “I believe in these girls, and that first season blew me away,” the star explained of her decision to sign on without any knowledge of what her role would be.

American actress Meryl Streep says she was delighted to join the cast of HBO’s hit drama series, Big Little Lies , which has offered challenging roles to a large ensemble cast of women.

One key member of that audience turned out to be Meryl, who revealed at a panel discussion in New York City last month that she accepted the role of Mary Louise (Meryl's legal name) without reading the script.

"[My agent] said, 'There's a part that they wrote with you in mind because they called her Mary Louise. … I said, 'Yeah, I'll do it,'" Meryl recalled (via Us Weekly). "He said, 'Don't you want to read it?' I said, 'No.' It was the greatest thing on TV. It really was, that first season."

As Nicole told Variety last fall, she and Reese were both stunned when Reese got an email from Meryl expressing interest in the role.

"[Meryl] goes, 'I suppose now I have to join you.' And we were like, 'What?' The two of us were just shocked," Nicole said at the time.

"There was no script when Streep signed on. She hadn't even read it. That's how much she wanted to support us."
