Betty Gilpin is the breakout action star of ‘The Hunt’

Betty Gilpin is best known for her Emmy-nominated role on the Netflix original series “Glow,” and emerges in “The Hunt” as a female killing machine. She tells Yahoo Entertainment being on “Glow” was the perfect training for her action-hero moment. “I was very used to slamming my body on the ground over and over again,” she says.

Co-star Ike Barinholtz says Gilpin totally elevated the movie and raves about her performance. “It’s wonderful to watch her in the pre-Oscar phase of her career.”

“The Hunt” is in theaters Friday, Mar. 13.
