Prime role behind the scenes
The district attorney in is still a mother first, writes
Keanu Reeves’s Neo in sci-fi action trilogy The Matrix from 1999 to 2007.
Moss may not miss action roles, but she does miss Australia.
‘‘I loved living there. Sometimes I still wish I lived there, that I could spend every Christmas at Byron Bay. I’ve already got a plan mapped out in my head. When the kids are little older, I’ll bring them for a holiday. I’ll take them to all the places that I loved.’’
Moss plays district attorney Katherine O’Connell in Vegas.
‘‘She’s an unusual character, (being) a district attorney in the 1960s (was) for a woman then practically unheard of. She has been to the city and back to the town where she grew up to take the job of DA. She’s as comfortable riding a horse as she is talking to the men about work and politics.’’
Vegas is based on the reallife adventures of Ralph Lamb, a rancher and rodeo rider who was sheriff from 1961 to 1979.
Dennis Quaid plays Lamb, an old-school lawman who broke the noses of wannabe mobsters and once arrested 74 Hell’s Angels and gave them haircuts after dismantling their motorcycles.
Quaid and Michael Chiklis ( The Shield), who plays casino boss Vincent Savino, are executive producers alongside creators Nicholas Pileggi ( Goodfellas) and Greg Walker ( Without A Trace).
and with husband Steven Roy.
