Po­lice show role be­comes re­al­ity

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

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.”
