A Psychic Told Melanie Lynskey That 'Yellowjackets' Would Be Her Big Break

Before the premiere of the smash hit Showtime series Yellowjackets, lead actress Melanie Lynskey shared that she got some reassurance about the role from a psychic, something she acknowledges is a little bizarre.

However, it seems this psychic was right on the money with their predictions of the future, as Lynskey and the show as a whole has received tons of praise from viewers and critics alike.

A rising actress received advice from a strange source.

Melanie Lynskey, star of the hit series Yellowjackets, claims she knew that the show was going to be extremely important for her career before it premiered.

How could she know that? Could just be instinct, sure, but she also had some input from a psychic.

Don't worry, she knows it's kind of strange.

In an interview with InStyle, she said, "This sounds so crazy but I talked to a psychic, who I love, and she told me this was gonna happen."

She visited this psychic after filming the show.

"It had been months and months since we shot the [Yellowjackets] pilot, and she said, 'That show's gonna get picked up and it's gonna be really big, and you're gonna enter into a time in your career that you thought, if this didn't happen when you were 25, it was never going to happen. It's about to happen.'"

She didn't believe it initially.

But lo and behold, not only has the show been wildly successful and garnered quite a bit of critical acclaim, but her role as Shauna earned Lynskey her first Emmy nomination. Seems that psychic knew what she was talking about!
