Character Bio: Being married to Alfred Kinsey, who researched and wrote Sexual Behavior in the Human Male in 1948, must have been fun. And in the hands of Linney, who plays his ever-patient wife Clara, it is. Clara’s earthy lustiness and deep reservoirs of humor and serenity, combined with her healthy appetite for sex that matches her husband’s, makes her more than just an understanding wife. Kinsey’s true soul mate, she pushes him, disagrees with him, and, most importantly, stands by him through thick or thin.
