TVLINE | Have you been enjoying Faye’s evolution from the “resident bad girl” to something richer?
Definitely. I’m blessed that [series boss] Andrew [Miller] and all of our writers give me a lot of different things to play. Sometimes she’s very vulnerable and just wants to be loved, and other times she’s out to stir the pot and get her power back.
TVLINE | Her role also seems to be to keep things light and fun, saying what a teenage girl actually would say in such unreal circumstances.
She’s kind of like the voice of reason, expect that what she says isn’t always the nicest thing. But a lot of the time, it sort of is true!
TVLINE | That said, stuff just got real at the end of last episode. Will news spread of Lee’s death or will this be one of those things where he allegedly left town?
It starts like that, but Faye doesn’t believe Eva when she says that Lee has left town. Faye thinks something must have happened.
TVLINE | Because let’s face it, in real life people don’t just leave town. When has anyone ever told you, “Oh Phoebe, that guy you were dating? Yeah, he just up and left town”?
“Without a phone call….” Exactly. So Faye knows something is up, and she gets Diana and Melissa to help her investigate.
TVLINE | So is that the last we’ve seen of Grey Damon? Because the lady folk seem to like him a lot.
[Laughs] Right? I don’t know…. It’s a supernatural show, so anyone can be brought back to life!
TVLINE | He’s a hard act to follow, though, as an on-screen match for both you and for Faye.
I think Faye is always attracted to the bad guy with a heart of gold, and that’s what both Lee and Jake are. But yeah, Grey was awesome, so it’s a shame [he's gone].
