March 16 - 22, 2019 10 KINGSPORT (TN) TIMES NEWS Were you comfortable with your character Cara's switch from skeptic to believer, regarding the social-media account that's supposedly run from heaven, on "God Friended Me'? I think, for Cara, she can't help but notice all of the signs that have been happening with the God account. And I think more than believing or not believing, for her, it feels so good to help people – and she gets to see that pay off. It's not something where you donate to a charity and you hope it works out. She actually is physically meeting these people, having conversations with them, helping them out, writing stories about it that then further help other people. So I think that's what really draws her to the God account and to Miles (played by Brandon Micheal Hall) and to helping these people. You have a fan base from other projects as well, including "The Flash." What has their reaction to "God Friended Me" been? Honestly, it's been really, really great feedback. I think our show makes (the theme) available to everyone. Young, old ... it doesn't matter. A lot of my fans, which happen to be a younger crowd of people, are like, "Wow, I didn't know about the show. This is really cool." They've started watching with their families. People are messaging me all the time and saying (things like), "My daughter is in a hospital and she watches this, and it lifts her up. And then, she talks to her friends that are in the hospital (about it)." It's amazing, the amount of feedback that we are getting like that. Violett Beane OF 'GOD FRIENDED ME' ON CBS BY JAY BOBBIN BY GEORGE DICKIE How was your "At Home With Amy Sedaris" character of Chassie initially described to you? Well, actually I had worked with Amy before on "Difficult People" and then I performed at a live podcast thing. And she says – she might be lying; she's a huge liar – that her and Paul (Dinello, a series writer and executive producer) wrote the part with me in mind because they'd watched one of my videos that I made, this orange juice commercial. So they sort of wrote it with me in mind and then Amy was like, "We have this part that we think you'd be great. I hope you can do it." And then that's how it came to be. So how did you get inside this troubled character's head? They sort of created it based on this video that I had done. It's sort of a fake orange juice commercial where I play a suburban mom talking about what happens when you give your kids the wrong orange juice and then she goes off on this sort of maniacal, dark tangent. So I always like to go dark. I love going really dark so I just let myself go there for Chassie. How much improv do you get to do? All the dialog is scripted and it's so funny. Paul Dinello writes just like the funniest things to say. Because it's a sort of craft and homemaking show, there's a lot of physical stuff so we get to improvise a lot with that. And I love props comedy and Chassie has this purse that she never takes off her arm and so it's fun to try and butter philo dough with a purse dangling into the dough and butter and things like that.
