Here’s Sia Serving Straight-Up Flower Child in New ‘Transparent’ Season
It's not just the Pfefferman family that will continue undergoing some serious changes through Transparent Season 2, which is now available to stream via Amazon Prime—it's Sia, whose typically obscured face evolves into that of a soft, angelic flower child.
Yup, Jill Soloway's Emmy-winning comedy returns with a cameo from the pop star, and while Sia might be typically accustomed to huge stages and sold-out crowds, her "Puppet" character is totally content roaming around Transparent's Lilth Fair-type festival and singing to passersby between shows. It's certainly a departure from the X Factor in prime time, but if you ask us, there's no wrong place or time to hear the woman croon.
Transparent's first season, which was released to Amazon in September 2014, followed the journey of Maura Pfefferman, a transgender woman who was born Morton and who finally found the courage to come out to her adult children in her retirement. The admission was initially met with bafflement and some resistance by Maura's daughters and son, but soon, "Moppa," as her children began to affectionately call her, found her niche within the family.
Still, The Pfeffermans have never quite been wordsmiths, and Soloway told TVGuide.com in a story published yesterday (December 10) that they've still got plenty of dysfunction to share in the new installment of episodes.
"They're all so afraid of feelings," series creator Jill Soloway told the site. "They really are just totally ill-equipped to put words to feelings. They have no words for love or loss. And so they sort of stand there mute, trying to figure out what to do, or abandon people.
