Teen Wolf - Melissa Ponzio Interview

1) With Lorelai Gilmore off the air it seems Melissa McCall is the mom everyone wishes they had. What drew you to play this role and what do you love most about her?

Wow, thank you. What a HUGE compliment, and even bigger shoes to fill. I was lucky to audition for this role, and feel I won the lottery in being cast as Tyler's Mom. I think I'm most proud of the true unconditional love Mama McCall has for Scott. Although she was at first afraid when she finally learned his secret, she quickly accepted Scott, and no matter what will protect, love and honor her son.

2) "Teen Wolf" does an exceptionally good job involving the parents in the action and the characters are so well written that not only the teen audience roots for them but they also draw viewers above 25 because they are role models in a cool way. What's your take on what makes the parents so compelling?

I feel Jeff Davis does an amazing job writing for all the parents on the show. He writes for each of us with such care…each one of us have had amazing scenes molding, guiding and sacrificing for our children. Eaddy Mays' character gave her life to protect her family. JR Bourne as 'Argent' continues to protect and teach his daughter. Linden Ashby's character, 'Sheriff Stilinksi', struggles as much as my character does with being a single parent, and tries his best to raise his son in the way his wife would have wanted. Susan Walters, who plays Lydia's mother, tries to support and understand her daughter as best as she can. The heart to heart speeches Jeff has written for my character when speaking to my son touch my own heart. I think it makes it compelling for us to perform, and I hope it makes it compelling for the viewers...

3) Your TV son Tyler Posey seems to be a person who's really enjoying his career, he seems good-humored, open, approachable and also he and Scott seem to have a few things in common. What would you say what are the three most important qualities that Tyler and Scott share?

Yes, Tyler and 'Scott' share many qualities…devotion to family being the primary one. Tyler is so proud of his brothers, Mother and Father. His face lights up when he talks of them. I've had the pleasure to meet his Mom and Dad, and he is the perfect mix of the two. Having dear friends, and being a dear friend, both on and off screen is the second amazing quality he has. Tyler is loyal to his friends in such an admirable way. And third, he's an honest soul. I've seen Tyler speak his truth on more than one occasion. He is of his own mind and will tell you exactly what he feels. I think this was in conflict with his character, specifically the first two seasons when he couldn't tell Mama McCall about being a wolf. He was conflicted and torn, and I would say heartbroken that he had to keep it from her, to protect her at first. I think it's a huge weight off his shoulders...

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.
