In addition to Kirsten Dunst, there is also Benedict Cumberbatch/Jesse Plemons' mother, who they just refer to as "the Old Lady." They also refer to their father as "the Old Gent" and they call her "the Old Lady" multiple times. I think that should qualify, as "the Old Lady" is actually a fairly empowered character in that her sons are scared of her. There is a scene when she, Kirsten Dunst, and the governor's wife all talk, though they mostly talk about Benedict Cumberbatch and probably don't really directly talk to each other, so this fees like a 1 or 2 out of 3.
