Under the Dome - Interview with Britt Robertson

Thanks to maplewhite1912 for the heads up.

Angie dies right off the bat in the book. So how happy were you to learn that she would actually survive the initial dropping of the dome?
Britt Robertson: I actually learned it in the opposite way. I obviously knew that I was going to be in more than one scene. So when I signed on to do the TV show, I was like, "OK, I should read the book." I started reading the book and then she's locked up in this closet and dead and is joined by another dead person who is a regular on this show. I kept reading the book thinking that my character was going to miraculously come back to life, but she never did. [Laughs] It was an interesting way to not have any information on my character except for the fact that they did reference her [posthumously] a few times throughout the book. I didn't have as much backstory as some of the other people have gotten for who their characters are based off the book. But I was definitely excited that they wanted to do more with my character than keep me dead in the closet.

Did that still make you nervous that at any point they could kill you off?
Robertson: Yes. It's interesting with these types of shows, I feel like that's a threat anyways. So you go into these kinds of shows and say, "Well, they really could kill me off in two or three episodes, but I guess since I do die in the books so quickly, that even makes that threat a little larger."

What will Angie be facing in that fallout shelter as she attempts to convince Junior to let her go?
Robertson: That's the battle I'll face for a good four episodes. When I first met with [executive producers] Brian [K. Vaughan] and Neal [Baer] before we even started shooting, they mentioned this idea that Angie has this way with not even just men, but people in general where she can manipulate them and get what she wants very easily by using different tactics. In a way, she's been doing this her entire life. When she gets trapped in this fallout shelter with a guy who she's known for the majority of her life — she knows him probably better than anyone — she uses every skill, every tactic, every manipulation that she can to get out of there. Ultimately, he's just not the person who she thinks he is. It's a really fascinating frustration for Angie because she's fighting being able to control him and manipulate him, yet she's being entrapped by this guy who is just insane. There's no reasoning with him.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
