How ‘Clarice’s’ Rebecca Breeds Paid Homage to ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ Star Jodie Foster

Clarice Starling is back on-screen 30 years after the horror hit “The Silence of the Lambs.”

In the new TV show “Clarice,” Rebecca Breeds stars as Jodie Foster’s character, FBI agent Clarice Starling, six months after she interviews Hannibal Lecter for the Buffalo Bill serial killer case.

“Extra’s” Cheslie Kryst caught up with Rebecca, who nailed Clarice’s Appalachian accent. Breeds, who is Australian, revealed, “I really wanted to pay homage to Jodie because she found the voice of the character.”

Cheslie also spoke with Rebecca’s co-stars Michael Cudlitz, Kal Penn, and Devyn Tyler. Watch!

“Clarice” premieres on CBS tonight at 10 p.m.
