The Daw­son’s Creek alum, 38, reprises her role as the iconic tragic first lady in Reelz’s sec­ond se­ries about the famed fam­ily in The Kennedys: After Camelot, pre­mier­ing tonight. The four-part se­ries fol­lows Jackie after the as­sas­si­na­tion of her hus­band, through her mar­riage to Greek mil­lion­aire Aris­to­tle Onas­sis and un­til her death in 1994.

How is Jackie dif­fer­ent than when you played her in The Kennedys in 2011? She has the weight of the world on her, with the pass­ing of her hus­band, and then Bobby Kennedy’s death and Chap­paquid­dick. There’s just so much more tragedy in this se­ries than she ex­pe­ri­enced in the se­ries be­fore. Do you think Jackie loved Aris­to­tle Onas­sis or just wanted some­one to take care of her? I felt like she was very much in love with him, and he brought her a hap­pi­ness that she re­ally needed. She had been so sad and in so much pain; I felt her feel­ings for him were very gen­uine. What can you say about your role in next year’s all-fe­male Ocean’s Eight, with Dakota Fan­ning, Sandra Bul­lock, Anne Hath­away, Ri­hanna and Olivia Munn? It was so much fun. I did a lit­tle cameo play­ing my­self. I had a great time. Are you up to re­visit Daw­son’s Creek for a re­union? We get asked that a lot, and it’s so flat­ter­ing. Our last episode took place five years after the episode prior, so our fi­nale was like a re­union. I think it’s been done.
