‘The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story’ mostly accurate, says real Marcia Clark

People -

It must have been very hard for those involved in the OJ Simpson trial to be going through it back when it was happening; with that said, it now has to be even harder for some of those involved to now have to relive it thanks to “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story” airing on FX. There is a reason why many of the people involved in the trial who are still alive are choosing to not speak out too much about it, with one major exception being the real Marcia Clark.

The former prosecutor, who is now an author, has done some assorted interviews about the trial and also the accuracy of the series. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she was fairly praise-worthy when it comes to how the writers and producers are depicting many of the major events:

“Overall, they got the big stuff really right. The stuff that needed to be right for people to get a sense of the essence that was going on during the trial. They got that amazingly right.”

While she has moved on from her former job and seems by all accounts to new live a wonderful life, she does also admit that the events of the trial are coming up more now thanks to the show:

“Certainly [I think of the trial daily] now with the FX show on the air. But one way or another, yeah. The pain of that trial is never going to leave me, never. There‚Äôs something that reminds me every day that there was no justice. Two innocent people where slaughtered and there was no justice.”

One such former member of the prosecution who has remained silent on the show is Christopher Darden; as Sterling K. Brown recently said, he has had no interaction at all with the man behind his character, with him thinking that this may be a part of his life he is not too keen to revisit.
