‘Impeachment’ Star Beanie Feldstein on Telling Monica Lewinsky’s Story and Being Her ‘Bodyguard’



“I had the great gift of that, when I received the scripts, I knew that every word that I was saying was approved by and had been to Monica first,” said Beanie Feldstein, who portrays Lewinsky in the limited series. "[The producers] would go through the scripts with [Monica] and she would give all her feedback and her notes, and by the time it got to me, I was sure that everything in there was something that she felt comfortable with, she thought was real to her life, and felt represented her.”

“She would answer anything I had questions about, but it was easier and more useful for me to just be around her spirit and text her,” Feldstein said. “We would send videos to each other … She was incredibly giving, and I made it very clear to her when we started filming that I saw myself as her bodyguard. I was like, ‘I’m putting my body in for you. I’m going to protect you. I have your back. I know your heart.’ And that’s my job.”
