Police show role becomes reality
ACTOR Rachel McAdams ( pictured) was given a real taste of police work during a ride along for her True Detective research after a traffic stop led to a car chase.
The Notebook star, who plays a police detective on the second season of the crime drama series, thought she would have an easy night following officers on their shift until a suspect tried to flee.
She says, “I did the whole shift, so it was 7pm to 7am, and about four in the morning, I was starting to get really tired, so I was like, ‘ can we go get a coffee?’ So we go in and come out and ( the officer’s) partner was knocking on this kid’s car door. She knocked on the window with her flashlight and he sort of woke up and kind of freaked out and she was like, ‘ alright, get out of the car’. He turned the car on … ( I get) pulled out of the way and the kid pulls out and takes off and coffees are flying.”
