It’s Greg’s first show, that he’s doing completely on his own. Everybody cared so much, so it means more to us than other things have ‘cause it’s such our baby.
She married the person she probably should have married, and she loves that person, but it’s not that thing. She’s all for her family, but it would be a lie to say that she’s over that other one, completely.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actress Ivana Milicevic talked about how she got involved with this show, how much she enjoys getting to play the two sides of her character, what it’s like doing the fairly graphic but always story-driven sex scenes, working with co-stars Antony Starr and Rus Blackwell, what’s to come for her character, and her favorite episodes this season. It was the middle of pilot season, so there were tons of pilots, but this was the one that I read and really, really wanted. Or there are women who you think are going to be the most doting mother in the world, and then they’re not.
So, I went in the first time and Greg said, “Oh, you should read a few more episodes.” I thought he meant I should keep reading pilots. You don’t know how you’ll be affected, when that happens.
MILICEVIC: Wow, I didn’t even look at it like that because you shoot it different ways. So, you have to watch the sex scenes and not close your eyes.
Are you comfortable with those types of scenes, or do you have to get yourself into a certain headspace?
I had to stay away from New York, so I stuck to small towns. When you have these secrets and you know you’re lying to your kids, to some extent, then you’re going to overcompensate.
It was full-on, but it wasn’t embarrassing, shameful or dirty. You’re like, “There it is,” but after that, it’s liberating. But, if there was ever a character I was going to do it for, it was this one. What can you say about the journey your character is taking?
He would always go to that restaurant and see me all the time. I think she was going to be a really good mother ‘cause she would have never pursued Lucas herself, regardless of how much she loved him. That’s still her main objective, to save her family. But, at the end of the season, into the season finale, the shit hits the fan, and then it blows into another fan.
