How have you felt about the reaction to the show? You were in the second season for only a few episodes, but you played a major sinister role. [To recap: Tanya died when she tumbled from a yacht. She’d become convinced that her new “high-end gay” travel companions, including a British man named Quentin, were colluding with Greg to kill her. She ended up shooting most everyone on the boat, using a gun from a duffel bag that also contained rope and duct tape, brought on board by her drug-dealing one-night stand, whom she’d met through Quentin. It’s complicated.]
This is the beauty of Mike White [the show’s creator]. It’s also extremely subjective. This is what Tanya thinks. When Portia says to her, “Hey, something’s afloat.” Is it really?
OK: gun, rope, tape. Would they really need all that? All they’ve got to do is push her off the boat out in the ocean, and, “Oh, she fell overboard.” You know what I mean? Mike is so crafty, how he kind of leaves it open. Even when she’s doing the shooting, it’s from her perspective because we’re in her mind, and she thinks something’s up.
Wait, are you saying Greg’s innocent?
I’m not saying he’s innocent, but let’s just say, if this were in a court of law, would they really be able to prove intent? He wasn’t there, number one. Number two, yes, maybe he suggested Sicily, and yes, maybe Quentin is his friend. But the purpose might have been to get her in a compromising position with that other guy.
But I go along with the crowd. I do think that there’s something afoot.
Are you going to be in the next season?
That I don’t know, honestly. Mike White does what Mike White does. When he was writing Season 2, I got a text from him — that was how I found out. He said, Are you available? I said, Anytime, anywhere.
