“I think that if we’ve done our jobs properly, Olivia is a little bit of a mirror to Mary. And rather than rooting for one or the other, I’m hoping that what people will do is wonder why they’ve been rooting for Mary. Is she doing the right thing for the right reasons? Do the ends justify the means? I’m all for the big, heady questions.” Continue reading.

“All casting directors need to work very hard to audition and learn about all diverse actors in the industry. Even non-traditional routes need to be explored — dance, singing, stand up — as the demand is huge, and the pool is not yet large enough or experienced enough to meet the demand. We need to open our doors and give diverse actors as many opportunities as possible.” Continue reading.

“I think we’re getting this sense that Mary may be struggling with some of the same mental issues that their mother did. I think that’s frightening to Mary as well. Because of that, Nicole may have more of a clear conscience of what’s going on, where Mary is knee-deep in it. She’s sacrificing her family, her home and job for this and has a lot on the line where Nicole doesn’t.” Continue reading.

“One of the things I considered when preparing for this role was remembering how much more intense everything feels when we are teenagers. In that time of life, people are still in the process of figuring out who they, and as a result, are more easily influenced by other people and the events around them. Additionally, it was important to me that Jess didn’t come across just as a moody teenager that is upset with her mom. Rather, we also see her vulnerability, big heart, and intelligence, that sometimes end up being suppressed in order to protect herself from getting hurt.” Continue reading.

“I also felt very lucky to portray a character who is in the process of coming to terms with her sexuality. And what’s even better is that the writers didn’t treat Jess’ experiences any differently than they would for a heterosexual character. It was refreshing.” Continue reading.

“There are a lot of other teenage plots centered around boys and high school drama, which is fine because that’s what happens, but to see that these characters have stuff going on underneath all that is fun. You don’t just see their outward teenage moodiness. You see why that is happening and what they are protecting underneath all that.” Continue reading.

“When you look at something like directors, there’s so many amazing male directors, but also so many amazing female directors that just need a shot, or just ones who don’t need a shot and are amazing and we want to work with. Holly [Dale] was like that and such a coup for us in the first season of Mary Kills People. Mary sort of came together that way because eOne is another example of smart, wonderful women who have taken charge there.” Continue reading.
