Santa Fe New Mexican - - CELEBRITY Q & A -

When you signed up to join “Lethal Weapon,” did you feel a need to look at episodes done be­fore this third sea­son of the show, since you were com­ing in fresh to es­tab­lish a new char­ac­ter?

I think I went back and watched a lit­tle bit of the first sea­son, then I sort of stopped my­self. I thought, “I just want to read a new script and see what that feels like,” hav­ing not re­ally known what the show was be­fore. I just know that peo­ple are very pas­sion­ate about it, which is re­ally cool.

It’s not “new” like do­ing a se­ries pi­lot, but you do feel the new­ness of the re­la­tion­ships and get­ting to know every­body. It’s a rare thing to get to do that well into the run of a show.

You’ve also done your share of Hall­mark movies lately. Are more of those in store for you?

If there’s room in the fu­ture, we’ll hope­fully be do­ing some­thing to­gether again at some point. Right now, I’m fo­cus­ing on do­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent and get­ting more into the drama space again, and that’s why I’m so ex­cited about “Lethal Weapon.”
