BONES: Tamara Taylor Previews ‘The Cold in the Case’
April 10, 2014 by Marisa Roffman
BONES’ Cam and Arastoo have been in a relationship for about a year and a half, but in Monday’s brand new episode, “The Cold in the Case,” they face a common speed bump couples face: stress about meeting the parents.
“Arastoo springs on her a surprise visit from his parents at the very last minute,” Tamara Taylor (Cam) previewed. “He’s not looking forward to it, based on his own past with his parents who have been kind of hard [on him], and maybe a little rough on the women who have been in his life. So he tees up this wonderful dinner [filled with stress] we’re going to go on, and then it all unfolds. I think he’s wonderfully chivalrous, but maybe a little bit misguided.”
The fallout from the dinner for the duo has an unintended impact — Cam, who has always attempted to keep personal matters out of the workplace, won’t be able to hide some of the tension she’s facing in her relationship with Arastoo.
“I don’t know if they’re handling it particularly well!” Taylor laughed. “I think they’re trying to be professional, but it’s a tad awkward…Cam’s not doing as well as she’d like to be doing with separating work from her personal life.”
Fortunately, none of the tension of the episode carried over when it came time for Taylor and Pej Vahdat (Arastoo) to work with his on-screen mother, guest star Shohreh Aghdashloo (Deena).
“She is beyond,” Taylor gushed. “There are no words for how amazing that experience was. I was floored. First of all, HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG [which earned Aghdashloo an Academy Award nomination], she tore that up. Just one of the most amazing performances of that year. So…we were jumping around. We were totally excited — and a little scared. She has some gravitas! That voice!”
“She was amazing to work with because she brings it,” Taylor continued. “She was just so kind, and so generous. And just so down to play. Her enthusiasm and her passion, it was just a nice thing to see, coming from someone who is who she is…I think she just loves creating art, and you can just feel it.”
BONES’ “The Cold in the Case” airs Monday, April 14th at 8 PM on Fox.
