Abi­gail SPENCER

Chattanooga Times Free Press - Parade - - Personality -

The for­mer Mad Men and Suits star, 37, re­turns as pro­fes­sor Lucy Pre­ston when the team of TV’s Time­less goes for one more time-trav­el­ing spin. In a two-hour show-fi­nale movie on NBC (Dec. 20), Pre­ston tries to stop the his­tor­i­cal med­dling of the Rit­ten­house or­ga­ni­za­tion one last time.

Tell us about the movie. We meet peo­ple who don’t mean any­thing to his­tory, and Lucy wants to save them. She started car­ing only about res­cu­ing his­tor­i­cal wgures and pro­tect­ing his­tor­i­cal ac­cu­racy, and now she’s like, “What’s the point of sav­ing his­tory if we don’t save the peo­ple in it?” Dur­ing the two hours we go to two dif­fer­ent time pe­ri­ods to stop Rit­ten­house.

Will there be a real res­o­lu­tion? I think, as with all good end­ings, it ends. But it doesn’t “end,” be­cause we want the story to live with the au­di­ence as they think about the fu­ture. It achieves both a res­o­lu­tion and leaves the door open.

What is Reprisal, the new Hulu pilot you Lust Ƃlmed? It’s about a sur­vivor who seeks re­venge on men who at­tacked her. It reyects the col­lec­tive con­scious­ness on the planet right now: women ris­ing up and be­ing able to go back and stand up to their at­tack­ers. But it’s done in a re­ally cool, dystopian way. Are you re­lated to the British Spencers, like

Princess Diana? That’s so funny. My grand­mother swears [we are], but I’ve never done any dig­ging. I did meet a lot of Spencers [in Eng­land] and I am a Spencer, so who knows?
