PSYCH’s Kirsten Nelson on Being a Mother Hen, Her Dream Guest Stars

July 14, 2010 by  

As the underappreciated Chief Vick on USA’s PSYCH, Kirsten Nelson has gotten used to playing “mother hen” to Shawn, Gus and the detectives of the SBPD.

But now that Shawn’s dad, Henry, is coming aboard to assist Vick in keeping Shawn under control, will there be any second thoughts?

“I didn’t think [Henry] was going to take [Chief Vick] up on that,” Nelson says. “[But] I think it’s going to be a good thing…the Chief can’t concentrate on Mr. Spencer all the time. The Chief has an entire department to oversee.”

But will this be a long-term situation?

“I don’t know how long it will last,” Nelson shares. “We’ll see how well father and son get along after a few episodes. But I think it’ll be interesting having him in the office again…I kind of see the Chief as a mother hen…to have another adult in the station…there is a different level with Henry, which I think is kind of cool.”

In the video interview below, Nelson also shares some of her dream guest stars with us, and we gotta say, the girl has good taste: Esai Morales, Hugh Laurie and Emily Deschanel? Amazing.

She’s also gushing over her TV sis, Jane Lynch.

We so approve.

Take a look…

Such a fangirl. We love it.

Would you like to see any of Nelson’s dream casting picks actually happen?

    I adore Kirsten and we don’t hear from her enough! Thank you so much for posting this. 🙂

    Henry Ian Cusick should play the Chief’s husband. The reason we haven’t seen him all this time should be because Chief Vick has been keeping Shawn and her husband away from each other (because they’re a little too much alike).

    That’s my take, anyway.

    @acubound05- Isn’t she fantastic?! I <3 her too.

    @Bruce_F- That would be awesome!

    Hahahaha, lol, I loved how she was like “oh, come on, you know her too?! I need you job!” when talking about Emily. Great interview!

    @Sofi: Thanks! Wasn’t she adorable fangirling over the TV stars?

    @Marisa: She was adorable. The way she said it, it sounded like a complete fangirl. Even more adorable because she thought of Emily! Wouldn’t it be awesome if she guest starred on Psych? You should tell Emily about it next time you interview her… 😉

    @Sofi- Ha, I really want Kirsten to guest star on BONES! She gushed about it to me several minutes after the camera was turned off. Emily’s schedule is pretty darn packed, but cable actors have a lot more free time…

    Right, Emily and her tight schedule. Well, then this is a problem that only Hart can solve. I’m sure they can find a role for Kirsten in any of these upcoming S6 episodes. Bones needs more awesome guest stars!
