Laura Benanti - Number One Bunny

Laura Benanti is one tough Bunny Mother. The Tony Award–winning actress has long been a Broadway darling, but this fall she shines on the new prime-time drama The ­Playboy Clubas Carol-Lynne—the shrewd and enterprising original ­Playboy Bunny at the Chicago club in 1961, who fights for a managerial position when she is pushed aside for younger newcomers such as Bunny Maureen (Amber Heard).

“There’s a major love triangle between me, Maureen and Nick [Eddie Cibrian],” Laura divulges. “My character says a lot of sassy, snappy things, because let’s face it, she’s a bit of an undercover bitch.” To prepare for her role as “unwitting feminist” Carol-Lynne, Laura did her research. “I was intrigued to discover how much the girls loved working at the club and what a progressive person Hef was,” she says. Another pleasant surprise? Her Bunny costume. “I was nervous about putting it on, but it’s sexy and adorable and somehow makes every woman look ­beautiful. It’s kind of awesome.”
