Enos en­joy­ing fi­esty new role

Fra­zier Moore vis­its the set of The Catch, where he meets two gen­er­a­tions of pow­er­ful women.

The Press - The Box - - COVER STORY -

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.

Mireille Enos plays Los An­ge­les’ top pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tor Alice Vaughan in The Catch.
