Episodes - Season 2 - Kathleen Rose Perkins Interview
Monday, July 09, 2012
KATHLEEN ROSE PERKINS: I think it’s just a lot more of the same, but bigger and better than the first season. I thought the first season was really well put together, but in the second season, I think they trumped themselves by creating these even more intricate relationships. Carol just goes deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole, in her relationship with Merc. This season, I had a very hard time with it because I’ve grown to be a really big fan of my character and really want her to succeed. In her work life, I think she’s really good at her job. In her personal life, she’s just a mess. I wish there was a clone of me, so I could shake her and slap her around and say, “What are you doing?! You deserve better!” But, you can’t unless you’re crazy, like Black Swan, and you can see yourself in mirrors. I had to just come to terms with her being a real damaged person, and there’s something really lovely to play in that.
There’s more growth, there’s more fighting, there’s more sex. In the first season, I didn’t know she was as in love with Merc as she is in the second season. It was news to me, and I had to reconcile that. It’s interesting, to me, to see what lengths she’ll go to, to get this man who is just awful. I loved it because it just makes her more of a real, interesting, damaged person. That’s always more fun to play than somebody who’s perfect. And I love pretending to get high. I’m a big hiker. I love the outdoors. So, when they wrote the hiking scenes, that was absolutely my favorite day of shooting, in my entire life. We spent the whole day shooting all of those scenes that take place in the wilderness between me and Beverly, played by Tamsin [Greig] in Griffith Park, and I wanted it to last all week. I loved it!
