I recently got the chance to participate in an interview with Maria Bello from Prime Suspect, and she was funny, endearing, and amusing. She discussed how she feels about her character’s strength, favorite moments of taping, and so much more.
If you haven’t heard of or seen the show yet, here’s the description from NBC: “Based on the critically acclaimed British television series of the same name & redeveloped for American audiences, Prime Suspect takes a look inside a New York City homicide department. The series stars Maria Bello (A History of Violence) as tough-as-nails NYPD Homicide Detective Jane Timoney, an outsider who has just transferred to a new squad, where her new colleagues already dislike her. Jane is confident and focused—and also rude, abrupt, and occasionally reckless. She has her vices, and rumors of a questionable past follow her everywhere, but at the end of the day, she’s an instinctively brilliant cop who can’t be distracted from the only important thing: the prime suspect.
Also starring are Aidan Quinn (Unknown) as Lt. Kevin Sweeney, Brían F. O’Byrne (Flash Forward) as Det. Reg Duffy, Tim Griffin (Star Trek) as Det. Augie Blando, Kirk Acevedo (Fringe) as Det. Luisito Calderon, Damon Gupton (The Last Airbender) as Det. Evrard Velerio, and Peter Gerety (Blue Bloods) as Jane’s father, Desmond Timoney.”
