Emmy spotlight: Karin Konoval (‘The X-Files’) comes out from under the bed and wows audiences with new role(s)

Emmy spotlight: Karin Konoval (‘The X-Files’) comes out from under the bed and wows audiences with new role(s)
Karin Konoval has already made her mark on “The X-Files” thanks to her iconic performances as under-the-bed villain Mrs. Peacock in “Home” and fortune teller Madame Zelma in “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose,” but her latest role(s) in this week’s “Plus One” could make her mark on the Emmys. As twins Judy Poundstone and Chucky Poundstone and their two dopplegangers, Konoval effortlessly portrays four complicated, quirky characters who have a telepathic link. And, oh yeah, did we mention Chucky just happens to be a man?

As we know, the Emmys love when actors take on multiple roles — just ask Tatiana Maslany who prevailed for portraying all those clones in “Orphan Black” (2016). Might Konoval earn her first career nomination at the 2018 Emmys for playing this gender-bending group of doppelgangers?

In a family with parents that are obviously required to be around people and be outspoken more often than not many children will either become quite and closed off or will take after their parents. Rubio has obviously chosen the path of being a star since she has no inclination to be
