Our previous post on the stupendous career of Michelle Forbes here
Awesome exclusive interview with SciFiWire, go read the whole thing!!:
As the finale looms, the stage is set for one hell of a battle as the only good guys left in Bon Temps—including Sookie, Bill (Stephen Moyer), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and Andy—try to stop Maryann and her minions from carving the heart out of Sam so that Dionysus will finally appear. How it will all end Forbes won’t tell, but she does rank the character as one of her favorites.
“She loves her mischief and having her fun along the way,” Forbes said with a laugh. “She has a different understanding of the world and this particular plane. She doesn’t see an end in the road the way everyone else does, because she has no time constraints and no moral constraints. And in playing her it is impossible for me to see her as a villain.
But the same can be said of any character that I have played. Admiral Cain [of Battlestar Galactica], you could say she was a villain, but the beauty of Ron Moore’s writing is that there was logic in what she did and said. The thing about Maryann, too, is that the writers have always given her a beautiful logic in what she says. I just love the entire story. I had no idea where it was going in the beginning. I, however, especially with Maryann, really enjoyed the sense of not knowing.”…
Yes that’s right, it is none other than Avery Brooks (actually Emissary IS the name of his fan club). Of course, I would’ve sent for Brooks when he was Hawk in Spenser for Hire to deal with Blago’s thugs too..
Here is the video confession:
When the EMISSARY gets busted, will he tell the jury it was for the safety of the Alpha Quadrant? Somehow it wouldn’t surprise me the way this thing is going..
