For Shawkat, who also produced Search Party, Dory feels like a new leaf. “I usually play grounded, has-their-head-on-straight, kind of sassy girls,” she explains while visiting New York. “That’s evolved lately … Dory is a very different character than I’ve played in a way. I remember feeling like it was a success when my little brother was like, ‘You don’t seem like yourself in that. You would never let someone talk to you like that,’” she continues. “I was like, ‘Damn straight!’”
