Arquette has won awards for her performances in 'Escape at Dannemora,' 'Boyhood' and 'Medium.' She currently stars in 'The Act' on Hulu, based on the real-life story of Dee Dee Blanchard, a woman who falsely convinced her daughter, Gypsy Rose, and everyone they knew — including doctors — that Gypsy Rose was seriously ill and needed to use a wheelchair.

Arquette talks about playing a series of complex roles in the past few years, and also tells Terry Gross about growing up on a commune, her father's conversion to Islam, and a time early in her career when she walked away from a project.
