October 6 - 12, 2018 10 KINGSPORT (TN) TIMES NEWS What is the theme of "Crazy Ex- Girlfriend" in its fourth and final season? The fourth phase is kind of recovery and starting from scratch, and in a really fun way. Every season of our show kind of feels like a mini-new-show, so it always feels fresh and it always feels new. The first season was very much about her creating this romantic comedy because of her inner chaos, and we're very excited for the second part of the (last) season. (Rebecca) settled, and then the chaos starts happening around her, and she finds herself in the middle of a bunch of romantic comedies. As the last round of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" begins, the character Greg is returning ... but he's played by a different actor, Skylar Astin. What can you say about that? We don't want to spoil it too much, but we're so excited. It is not only like a big leap and feels experimental and playful – like our show – but as you will see when the show airs, it will be kind of a great statement on how our perception of people changes. Greg is sort of a barometer of how many Rebecca has changed, because she will not have seen him for two years. And Skylar's lovely. A "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" stage musical has been mentioned on Instagram. Is that actually happening? It was a bit premature on my part. I was very excited. It's not a thing. It's just... you know, Broadway is hard. Every time you get a "like" on Instagram, it's a surge of dopamine in your brain. And I was really tired that day, and I needed some caffeine. And I was like, "I know what I need. Some good old-fashioned dopamine. I'm going to pose in a bathroom selfie." And it worked. Rachel Bloom OF 'CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND' ON THE CW BY JAY BOBBIN BY GEORGE DICKIE What challenged you most about your character of Harry on Netflix's "The Innocents"? I think ... just finding that vulnerability of what it feels like to be in this relationship and to fall in love again for the first time. And that's the sentiment I leave you with ... is just to kind of think about that first time you fell in love with someone and what that forced you to do, what feelings inside were triggered, and I wanted that to feel real, I wanted that to be authentic. And ultimately, it was trying to find that vulnerability, to strip away my instincts of what I would do in a situation and remove that. ... But sometimes with a character like Harry, it becomes a moment in which you have to let go and that feeling of letting go is the most, I guess, scary moment you can be in because I'm not using, say rigid ideas of who Harry is. I kind of just become him. I feel what he's feeling through the choices he's making and I just try to place myself in his shoes as much as I can, really. What did you think of to produce Harry's initial reaction to June's shape-shifting? ... Farren (Blackburn), the director, would come up to me and just kind of briefly give me a note or two about what this might feel (like), and I guess from there I just let my instinct take over. And ultimately ... it was this conflict of just what you're seeing is not real. And I think that's the thing, that most things happen in life, whatever you believe in, the first thing we do as humans anyway, human instinct is to deny something, and we force that. It could be anything. We deny who we're in love with. We deny who we're against. There are so many times where we always say no to things and I think that's where I place myself with Harry until I let that journey build in itself and he finally comes to that place of reasoning authentically, and also peace.
