Kathi Carey talks about Jane Sullivan (Interview)

[After producing 500 half-hour installments of my television series (Interview) from 1985-2001, and more recently launching a French version of the show, I have begun producing the series in English again. Here Kathi Carey, a veteran of the original series, talks of our recent taping.]

Q: How would you describe Jane Sullivan?

KC: I would describe Jane as a woman who has a strong sense of right and wrong ... a woman who knows how to take care of herself and someone, ultimately, who exacted her own form of reciprocity in a highly unusual way.

Q: What aspect of your own character did you bring to this role?

KC: My own philosophy regarding fairness, privacy and, of course, relationships in general.

Q: Did you have any difficulties in performing this role?

KC: It was as easy as two friends talking over coffee.

Q: What was the method of working with Stephen?

KC: Stephen has his own unique way of working with actors--he likes to get to know you a bit and then craft a role and a story that will use your unique strengths and personality so that you’re not “acting” per se, but instead inhabiting the role ... being the character from the inside out. Having done a couple dozen of these “Interview” shows I must say it’s the most fun I’ve had in front of a camera!
