DID YOU EVER GET SCARED FILMING MURDER SCENES? No. It would probably be easier if someone would scare the crap out of you so you don’t have to act, just react. It takes a lot of energy [to act scared]. You get knots in your back.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MURDER MYSTERY? I used to watch Murder, She Wrote. It’s very much the same formula every episode. That’s where this show differs: I couldn’t see the formula. All we talked about between takes was who you thought the killer was and who would die!
WHAT DO YOU MISS MOST ABOUT THE U.K.? Well, my family. And rashers! The bacon here is really not good. I’ve been craving a full Irish breakfast.
