Parker Posey landed a role in Laura Linney's TV show The Big C after a chance meeting with the actress.
Posey joined the cast for the second season of the programme in a recurring role, and she admits the job came about following a random encounter with Linney.
She tells the Los Angeles Times, "I ran into her in the street. I gave her a hug, and we talked a little about the business and the show and she's like, 'It comes from a good place, and you should do our show'. And I was like, 'I'd love to'."
