Thursday for thought: Bring on the actor panels; a compilation of Paleyfest interviews
A good interviewer doesn’t only prepare interesting questions but also knows how to jump in and stand his or her ground in an interview. In these large panels it must be even harder to keep all cast members engaged, feeling included and produce interesting results so these are bits and bobs of my favourite panels that I wanted to share with all of you, all gathered together in one place.
Paleyfest panels are starting again, March 1 to 15 so in an attempt to get into the Paley mood, here are some videos from last year to get you warmed up.
All videos are property of The Paley Centre for media, which is kind of the equivalent of “Inside the Actor’s studio” for television. Paley hosts amazing panels for all kinds of shows like Parks and Rec, Castle, Community, New Girl, Modern Family and any other current successful network shows that seems to attract some great fandoms.
Stana and Nathan describe being handcuffed to each other for filming, I have to laugh about how they finish each other’s sentences…Penny Johnson (Captain Gates) talks about her induction into the series, she’s actually pretty funny!
Matt Bomer (Neal Caffrey) and the adorable Willie Garson discuss what it’s like working from day to day and what ultimately makes this show tick. After getting your Mozzie fix, I was surprised to find out the hilarious Marsha Thomason (who plays Diana) is actually from Manchester! The things you discover from watching interviews like this are amazing…
I love this clip of Sophia Vergara and Ed O’Neil talking about Gloria and Jay’s relationship. The most hilarious bit is the story about the dog and how Sophia and therefore Gloria end up hating the dog on the show…
ONCE UPON A TIME
Jennifer Morrison animately talks about how her character Emma will come to slowly accept Henry’s story book reality. Then, toys with the idea that kissing every character might bring back memories of who they truly are. Lana Parilla describes bringing her characters to life through costume and how her ass keeps growing with every fitting…
Hugh Laurie (House), Jesse Spencer (Chase) and Jennifer Morisson (Cameron) talk about how their acting styles affected each other’s performances. It’s fun to watch the banter amongst the cast.
In this clip, the beautiful Heather Morris talks about dancing in front of Britney Spears twice and the pop stars’ inability to make the connection. She excitedly describes how amazing it was to “fake vomit” on her birthday for the show while performing a Ke$ha number.
