Emmy Watch: 'Rectify' star Abigail Spencer on the importance of chemistry (and nail polish)

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com will feature interviews with some of the actors and actresses whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 18.

When you first see Abigail Spencer on screen in Sundance’s strong miniseries Rectify, she’s a chain-smoking ball of nervous energy.
