Scoop: Karla Souza Previews Tonight’s Thrilling Installment of HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER

Karla Souza how to get away with murder

It’s always the quiet ones! In the Pilot of ABC’s most riveting new drama HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER we met Laurel Castillo, played fabulously by the astonishingly talented Karla Souza. Castillo is extremely timid but proves her knowledge in the standout scene where Professor Keating (Viola Davis) is interrogating new (and terrified) student Wes. (Alfred Enoch)

Things are starting to take off now that Annalise has seen what’s on Lila’s (Megan West) phone, especially since she is now representing Rebecca. (Katie Findlay) We’ve gotten to see some of Connor’s (Jack Falahee) backsotry last week and a look into what kind of person he really is. A couple weeks earlier we saw into Michaela’s (Aja Naomi King) life as well, tonight it’s Laurel’s turn.

The withdrawn character has slowly become the law student to beat and has earned the respect of Annalise. Week after week we’ve seen her measure up to the challenge and prove her worth to the team. The wide-eyed law student plays a huge role in tonight’s episode! I caught up with the MURDER actress about her character, the scene she’s most excited for the fans to see, and what we can look forward to on tonight’s episode. [Read more…]

It’s Not Easy Being Green: Rebecca Mader Dishes on Playing the Wonderfully Wicked Witch Zelena on ONCE UPON A TIME

Zelena once upon a time rebecca mader

Of all the villains that ONCE UPON A TIME has presented, ranging from the Evil Queen to Rumplestiltskin to Peter Pan, perhaps none have been as curiously portrayed as the Wicked Witch, Zelena. It is the brilliant green hue that seems to hover about her and it reminds us of the magic of Oz.

ONCE UPON A TIME may cross between Fairytale Land and Storybrooke, but the allure of the golden brick road, those magical ruby slippers and the omnipresent Oz seems to hover around the Wicked Witch. We wonder at her life before she encountered our heroes and stole their castle in Fairytale Land — and just why she brought them all back (minds erased) to Storybrooke. Just what is this magnificent woman’s story and what is she up to?

All this and more teases are brains and we are just itching to know the answers. In an exclusive interview, newcomer Rebecca Mader teased a bit about the Wicked Witch’s backstory and just how she may be the victim in this tale. Could it be that Zelena was not always so wicked, nor green? [Read more…]
