Enos enjoying fiesty new role
Frazier Moore visits the set of The Catch, where he meets two generations of powerful women.
On the set of new crimeand-caper drama The Catch, Vesper Vivianne Ruck called out ‘‘Action!’’ The take, featuring her mother, series star Mireille Enos, clearly met with her approval and she called out ‘‘Cut!’’
A bit later, Vesper ran into Peter Krause, her mom’s co-star, and proudly announced she had just landed her first directing job.
‘‘She’s precocious,’’ says Enos of five-year-old Vesper, who had made the most of her visit to the set. ‘‘She wants to take over the world.’’
If that’s true, little Vesper fits squarely into the ethos of The Catch, which vibrates with woman power.
For starters, it joins the femalefueled portfolio of Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, producers of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder.
Enos, in her role as Los Angeles’ top private investigator Alice Vaughan, continues the Shondaland custom of centering its sagas on a woman who’s strong, resourceful, sexy and successful, even as she falls short of superwoman status: Alice, like Shonda heroines Meredith Grey and Olivia Pope, also has a vulnerable streak.
Spoiler alert: Read no further if you want to preserve the first of what will likely be a long line of hairpin story twists served up by The Catch.
The thing is, Alice is in love with a perfect guy, Benjamin Jones. Played by the alwaysappealing Krause (late of Parenthood and Six Feet Under), Ben is rich, charming and caters to her every need. After a year of dating, he has popped the question.
Backed by her the rest of her firm’s varied, but attractive team, Alice (Mireille Enos) will tackle a new case each week.
