Lucy Boynton who is from the newly released Ryan Murphy’s “The Politician” and she believes that she’d like to see Michelle Obama as the President in the Oval Office in the US.
Well, “The Politician” is the first show out of the many shows that are going to be produced by Ryan Murphy, as the list of shows to be produced by Ryan Murphy is big and the first one of his would premiere for four to six seasons.
Lucy Byton plays the role of ‘Astrid’ who is not only cool but also very aesthetically appealing – a teenage candidate who is vying for the student-body president at Saint Sebastian High School against a greatly ambitious peer Payton Hobert.
Payton has brilliant ideas and strategic designs on the White House, and nothing seems to possibly stop him from getting there. Payton is the adopted son of Georgina who’s played by Gwyneth Paltrow. He had lost his parents during his childhood and was adopted by Georgina and her rich collector husband Keaton.
The show revolves around the various mishaps occurring in the political strata, especially after Donald Trump came into the picture – the various admission scandals happening. Latest of which is Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman being sentenced to fourteen days of prison after paying someone to spike her daughter’s SAT scores.
The character Boynton plays ‘Astrid’ is a teenager who is basically a disappointment for her father and her father never forgets to remind her that. Secondly, her mother is in depression and a drug-dependent state of survival.
Boynton says that the dynamism and coldness to the character of ‘Astrid’ is very much a product of her upbringing which has been successively devastating. The very behavior of her father has made her independent – independent to choose and be the kind of child other fathers expect their sons to be.
