Lee Pace Talks PUSHING DAISIES…to My Take on TV
October 7, 2008 by Kath Skerry
My friend Amrie from My Take on TV had the opportunity to have a little one-on-one phone time with the lovely, handsome, debonair, sweet as pie (pun intended), Emmy nominated star of PUSHING DAISIES - Lee Pace, earlier this week. They talked about the season thus far and how Lee thinks Ned has changed, among other things.
I’m insanely jealous that Amrie got to talk to one of my favorite leading men (honestly the guy is just the sweetest thing this side of Couer d’Couers), but that’s not going to stop me from sharing an excerpt from her interview.
Amrie: I have seen the first three episodes, and I’m just in love with the show. I’ve been in love with the show since minute one.
Lee: Oh good, what do you think of the second season? Do you think it’s coming together?
The words I’m using to describe it so far are brilliant, and lovely. Every good word you can imagine to describe it, I’m using.
Lee:Oh good, thanks. That’s good. I really love how this season is. It’s different from the first season in a lot of ways, I think Bryan really found his stride, coming back from the strike this year.
Last year, you had the set up, and you had to learn a lot about these characters, and this year, you can kind of let them live, and breathe a bit, because we know enough about them.
Lee: That’s true. One thing I was kind of glad to see in the episodes, in last week’s episode, I wanted to make Ned have changed from the last episode of last year because it’s been a year since. In their world, too, a year has past, and I wanted there to be an impact, for Chuck to have had an impact on his life. Having spent time with her, having spent a year living with her, doing the cases with her, I wanted to give him a level of enthusiasm. In a way, kind of a willingness to change, become a better man, ya know?
It’s complicated and he’s got deep issues that he’s trying to deal with but he’s dealing with him. I think in every episode you see him taking a little step forward.
P.S. Posting about Lee also gives me an excuse to share with you a glimpse at my desktop. And you wonder why I’m so anxious to get on my computer in the morning. (click to enlarge)
