How did the role of Janice inScalene come to you?
Zack Parker wrote it, I think, with me in mind. He sent it to my agent, and my agent sent it to me. We were on vacation, and I read it and thought it was very compelling, suspenseful, and well-written. A completely complicated script, and that intrigued me.
And the kind of character you don’t get to play all that often.
That’s exactly right. So, it was really fun for me.
What were the biggest challenges taking on a role like that? Janice is largely unsympathetic.
The biggest challenge was trying to figure out, going backwards, how to arc it. I had to be reminded whose point of view we were in because each point of view was so different. One was more sinister, and that was hard, but especially going backwards.
