December 1 - 7, 2018 10 KINGSPORT (TN) TIMES NEWS What was it like for you to film at actual upstate New York locations where events in "Escape at Dannemora" took place? Well, for me, it felt kind of desolate. There was the prison itself and everything that happens in the prison, and the kind of sadness that I think everyone kind of experiences. But even around there, there was a ripple effect where a lot of industry had moved out. All these people were just working in the prisons, and there wasn't a lot to do. Also, just the cold – the intense cold of that area – made me feel like my character is kind of bored and wants to feel alive. I'd hear stories of all these people that were having affairs, whether they were guards or ... all these different stories. Because I think we, as a species, want to feel alive. The physicality of your character's involvement with the prison escapees is a major element of "Escape at Dannemora." How did you deal with that? It's scary to go to that place, but also, I found it fascinating when I was looking at research. There's a million porn stars who are 20 years old (with a) perfect body. And there's this humongous audience for MILFs: big, beautiful women, blah, blah, blah. People are actually looking for something else. What is it? And is it sexy (or) is it not sexy when someone is into their sexuality? That was also a big part of it, in a society that I think makes women often apologetic about their sexuality, to have an opportunity to kind of look at these themes. It was a part of Tilly I really wanted to look at. Patricia Arquette OF 'ESCAPE ATDANNEMORA' ON SHOWTIME AND THE MOVIE NETWORK BY JAY BOBBIN BY GEORGE DICKIE How has Claire's journey been for you as an actor? It's fascinating when you look back. You know, we're still in it in many ways so it's hard to be completely objective. But looking back, I think in many ways each season has coincided with my life in many ways. That first season I was thrown into such a new situation. I'd never done a TV show before. I'd never carried a show and it was such a new world for me. And I moved to a new country and all of these things that were very reflective of Claire's journey as well, and I think that they both played into each other quite well. The second season was a lot more ... settled in some ways. I think each season when you come back brings new challenges for you and that your understanding of the character obviously deepens. And yeah, I think it's quite interesting when you look back and see especially how naive we all were in the beginning and sort of had no idea about what this world was that we were walking into but it's been such an incredible experience. What's the most enjoyable part about playing Claire? Oh God, there's so much. I think just the variety of things that I get to explore with her. We've traveled many time zones, continents, but I think it's that personal inner growth that I've been able to explore with her. She was so young and quite naive, I suppose, even in the very beginning, and this is a very mature woman I'm playing now. She's in her fifties, she's a grandmother. You know, this relationship has matured so much, it's not that first flush of romance and passion where everything's so heated and decisions are made just on the spur of the moment. These are two people who are much more considered and it's nice to play a character like that as well, and not lose the essence of them but be able to take them in a different direction, is really quite nice.
