Favorite episode?“I don’t think I have one favorite, but the two that I like for my character are ‘Walkabout’ and ‘The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham’ because they sort of (summarize) his whole trip. What you like most about your character? “There are a lot of things happening with this character, and the writers give me a lot of room to do things. I like that they allow a wide range of ways of playing this character. There’s a lot of potential for interpretation in how to play this character. I don’t feel I’ll be typecast when the show ends, because you see this character in so many ways.” What was the most shocking twist in the storyline? “There was nothing that was a complete surprise, because there were murmurs down the pipeline about what was coming. When I read the episode ‘Walkabout’ and I hadn’t known my character was in a wheelchair before that point, you sort of knew what to expect from that. It changed my thinking a lot about how to approach the character. I didn’t expect to know things. I realized I was quite happy with that. I didn’t have to deal with adjusting my performance to the character’s future or past. I only had to deal with the now. I quite like that.”
