Playing ballsy women who remain undaunted in the face of powerful and sometimes scary men, says Maggie Siff, is what once led her to describe her TV self as "the queen of toxic masculinity."

"When you create a character, you can't plan the shape things will take," Maggie Siff tells Watch in her March-April 2020 cover story. "I always know I'm doing a good job when I'm surprised by what happens."

After reading Billions' pilot, Maggie Siff tells us, she wanted to ensure that her S&M scenes would serve the story, rather than simply being exploitive: "I also wanted to make sure I wouldn't have to perform them in my underwear."
