- Kait & Claire
Have you guys been keeping up with the third season of Shameless? What do you think of the series? Here’s an interview that Emmy did with HitFix’s First Look, discussing last night’s court room scene, and check out the clip below.
When you get a big meaty monologue like the one in this episode, how do you, as a performer, approach that? What was your reaction when you got that script?
Emmy Rossum: Well, these are characters that are dealing with poverty and dealing with alcoholism and homosexuality and everything. And it’s a dark story that generally we tried to treat it with some levity, and that’s showing a very resilient family. And Fiona’s a very strong character. But this is a situation where William H. Macy’s character, Frank, has really reached a whole new level, a whole lower bottom. He’s basically taking his own children and taking them away from Fiona, who’s essentially their mother, really. And so I tried to approach it from a story perspective. We know that she’s been in court fighting for these kids before, and that the accusations against the family are really bogus. And her having to say aloud the things that you always know about how horrible her father is to her and to her family, having to verbalize the abandonment and the hurt in order to persuade the judge, is something that I don’t think she’s ever done. So the monologue is about admitting the shame in the fact that your parents have abandoned you and don’t care about you, and saying that in a courthouse to a judge and where people are supposed to be upstanding citizens, and you’re feeling like you’re dirt. It’s a very difficult thing. So I tried to tell the story as simply and honestly as possible, and I think about my own situation with my father who abandoned me and my mother when I was a child. So although I don’t know him very well, there was definitely some poignancy in that kind of a story to me. (READ ON…)
A little late in reporting this, but congratulations to Emmy and the cast of Shameless for being picked up for a fourth season! My how time flies. Can’t wait to see what’s ahead.
“Californication, House of Lies and Shameless possess highly distinctive comedic voices, and given that all three continue to grow their audience season after season – the pick-up decision was easy. I am incredibly excited to see what each of these series has in store for their next seasons,” said Showtime entertainment chief David Nevins in a statement announcing the news Tuesday. Production for the new seasons of all three Los Angeles-based series will kick-off later this year, with debuts set for 2014. (source)
Things have been a little slow in Emmy news lately (it seems our girl is on vacation somewhere cold and blustery – good for her!), but here’s something to tide you over. Check out this behind the scenes video for season three of Shameless!
While we’ve been getting tons of You’re Not You, Beautiful Creatures and Sentimental Journey stuff, it’s been a little quieter on the Shameless front (which personally, is my favorite of her projects!), but I’ve got some cast photos from season three to share with you guys today. I’ve added them to the gallery, make sure to check them out.
