A “slightly” fictional adaptation?

Discovering Anna Recalculate The true story of Sorokin / Delvi, a young woman who deceived the entire New York elite by pretending to be a wealthy heiress..
The Sorokin story was first presented to the general public by Jessica Presler New York Magazine In 2018 This article is the basis for the series Discovering AnnaNamed Vivian Kent, after Anna Klumsky played a lightly fictional version of Presler. We also find Rachel WilliamsWho worked Vanity Fair At that time, and who was surprised when she found out the adaptation of her character and her story in the series.

In an article published this week by Time Magazine, Williams made it clear that she “did not participate in the show.”. She says:
I found out with everyone that Katie Lowes plays the character “Rachel” in it, and Netflix describes her as a follower who “almost ruined her job, her savings and her life by blindly adoring her”. But her biggest regret is her relationship with Anna, and the woman she’s thankful for is probably Anna’s great creation. “
Praising the culprit?
She explained that she imagined there would be times when Williams would change her experience dramatically Makes her “uncomfortable”. And she knows she has limited control over how the show portrays her character, She said the Netflix description was really ‘shocking’. The journalist then specifically quoted a sentence, “She is a woman thanking Anna”, saying: “These [quelques] In a nutshell, my business, my successes and my truth have been erased at once. “
Do we believe that the love I share with my parents, family and friends who raised me to become a woman is not due to my own efforts or self-satisfaction, but thanks to Anna?
