Carol is in Cannes promoting a TV series she’s in called Paper Empire, which… first, it’s about a man pretending to lose his fortune in a Ponzi scheme, only to use crypto to hide the funds. This cast is wild: Robert Davi, Denise Richards, Kelsey Grammer as a Swiss banker, Anne Archer heading up the FBI, Richard Grieco, Wesley Snipes, and Cuba Gooding Jr. as the Director of the CIA. It does not seem to be available anywhere yet? The series website has merch for sale — hat, sweatshirt, etc. — and each item costs $99.99. Is that in their fake cryptocurrency?!? Basically, I look forward to this being a huge weird mess, assuming it lands on any US-based streamers.

Carol’s character is named Mikela Van Nighe, and that does sound like a person who would wear a necklace the size of a neck brace. I have sincerely never seen such a gargantuan collage of gems. She might need cervical spine support for real if she wears that much longer.
