LIFE BEYOND WILL’S DEATH

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

AFTER simultaneously en­thralling and shock­ing view­ers with a heart­break­ing end to its fifth sea­son, TheGood

Wife isn’t slow­ing the pace, ac­tor Chris­tine Baran­ski warns.

Baran­ski, who plays har­das-nails se­nior lawyer Diane Lock­hart, says the shock death of Will (Josh Charles) and the fall­out has re­set TheGoodWife, throw­ing the re­la­tion­ships of the three strong women in the show – Diane, Ju­lianna Mar­gulies’ Ali­cia Flor­rick and Kalinda Sharma (Archie Pan­jabi) into sharp re­lief.

They may be reel­ing from the loss, but are not paral­ysed by it.

“Sea­son six is not go­ing to just be fall­out. It’s not like we are go­ing to calm down after this trauma. It re­ally hits the ground run­ning,” Baran­ski told

TVGuide.

“The Ali­cia-Diane re­la­tion­ship could so eas­ily have gone straight to a cliché of the bitchy boss and be­ing threat­ened and we cir­cum­vented that. There is re­ally some­thing quite ex­tra­or­di­nary that hap­pens be­tween them as they deal with life after the death of Will.

“Diane makes a re­ally brave life decision. As of­ten hap­pens in life you can make th­ese big de­ci­sions … from the gut in a very in­stinc­tive place.

“It seems like they are abrupt de­ci­sions but they are de­ci­sions that have come from a deep place.”
