Jen­nifer Lopez on SHADES OF BLUE

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - CELEBRITY -

‘Good peo­ple do ques­tion­able things all the time’. Or at least that’s what Jen­nifer Lopez has to say about her new role in po­lice drama se­ries Shades of Blue. She plays de­tec­tive Har­lee San­tos, a NYPD de­tec­tive caught up in an FBI cor­rup­tion probe that forces her to choose be­tween loy­alty to her unit, and do­ing the right thing. ‘The show is really about hu­man na­ture. More than any­thing, I think the over­ar­ch­ing theme is about how peo­ple get them­selves in very slip­pery sit­u­a­tions,’ she said in an in­ter­view with Ex­tra, main­tain­ing that Har­lee is a good per­son who is do­ing the best she can for her daugh­ter as a sin­gle mother. De­scrib­ing Har­lee, Jen­nifer says, ‘She’s com­pli­cated. I think there are go­ing to be mo­ments when you hate her and mo­ments when you love her, but you’re al­ways go­ing to understand her’. Play­ing a com­pli­cated char­ac­ter is ex­actly what she was look­ing for. ‘To me all the best roles are al­ways some­body who is morally chal­lenged in some way. Rid­ing both sides of the fence all the time.’ Shades of Blue pre­mieres on M-Net chan­nel 101 at 8.30pm on 13 Jan­uary 2016
