At about 3:07 she delivers the definitive moment that informed her eventual performance. About 35-40 scary seconds.
Doesn't everyone else assume that McDowell was just feeding a version of Nick as a favor to Nichols? He would never have been considered for the role. It strikes me as a nice gesture, to have a real actor. He carefully gives her just enough without offering anything close to a performance level.
