A Veteran in Need

Despite her extensive experience in both films and television, Lynskey found herself auditioning for "Two and a Half Men" out of financial necessity. Known for her roles in critically acclaimed films, she wasn't the typical choice for a sitcom. Yet, the need to pay the bills led her to take on a role that she considered a short-term endeavor.
