TV Jean Smart Looks Back on "Fargo"

Jean Smart on "Fargo"


“Oh, Floyd. I miss that old gal,” says Smart of her character, Floyd Gerhardt, the flinty matriarch of the most powerful organized-crime family in North Dakota. Just like audiences, Smart was hooked by the writing and the twists and turns that unfolded over this acclaimed ’70s-set second season, which garnered Smart another Emmy nomination.

“The anticipation would grow with every script: Is it out yet? Have they printed it? But it got bittersweet for me — 10 episodes were just not enough,” she says. She laughs when remembering how she asked creator Noah Hawley if there was a way to keep Floyd around.

“Oh, I begged him. Are you kidding me? I told him, ‘I’ll be a ghost! I’ll be anything!'”

"I had read for Noah Hawley, the creator, and once I read that speech ('Don't assume just because I'm an old woman that my back is weak'.) I just knew everything about Floyd.

I had my own theories on why she was named Floyd, you know my own actor-y backstory in my head on why her father named her Floyd, and I had waited until the end of the season to ask Noah because I didn't want to know... I had my own ideas.

He said, 'Well my wife had an aunt named Floyd and I just thought it was cool.', and I was like, 'That's it?!'. Oh well.. (laughs).
