If working with your mom seems difficult, try working with three of them! Englert did just that on season two of SundanceTV drama, which was created, written and directed by her mother, Jane Campion. Though it wasn't the 24-year-old actress' first time in one of her mother's projects, this time, she was placed in a role opposite Nicole Kidman (playing her adoptive mother, Julia) and Elisabeth Moss (portraying her birth mother, Robin) -- and held her own.
Englert's character, Mary, in Top of the Lake: China Girl, doesn't just become an additional layer to Robin's personal life; she becomes an integral part of Robin's detective work as she investigates the death of an unidentified girl who washes up in a suitcase on Australia's Bondi Beach. The role requires a layered, complex performance that Englert told ET her mom knew she could deliver.
"She said she knew me as an actress and what I was capable," Englert revealed. "And I trust her so completely that any time she'd want me to do anything, I'd be up for it." While Top of the Lake: China Girl wrapped on Sept. 12, we can't wait to see what Englert does next.
Top of the Lake: China Girl is now streaming on Hulu and is available on demand.
