GLEE: Jayma Mays Talks Will-Emma, Emma-Carl and More

January 25, 2011 by  

GLEEks, are you holding up okay?

It’s been a while since there was a new episode and we’ve still got nearly two more weeks until our next fix. The good news is the buzz around the post-Super Bowl hour indicates it’s shaping up to be worth the wait.

Unfortunately, Jayma Mays (Emma) will be MIA in that episode, but during our recent chat she did spill some thoughts on the Will-Emma-Carl triangle, Emma’s V-card status and more…
We need to start off with some Will-Emma talk. The GLEE fans love you guys so much.
Jayma Mays: Yay! Oh, that’s wonderful, that’s so good to hear.

Are there any moments coming up that you can tease for the duo?
JM: Will and Emma — that’s a tricky one because she’s married now, and I don’t think we know quite yet what direction the writers are taking that into. But it’s hard, because I understand that with Will and Emma, you kind of want them to be together, but I don’t know. She’s with someone else now, I don’t know what they’re going to do.

And Emma and Carl are actually kind of adorable right now.
JM: It’s kind of good, right? He helps her with her issues, she’s loosening up a little bit, she’s forgetting to cut the crust off her peanut butter sandwich. I think it’s a good thing.

Right. He’s not necessarily right for her, but for right now, he’s a very nice guy.
JM: Right, yeah. So far, so good with those things. And I don’t know, I don’t know where they’re going to take it. Makes for good TV, though!

One question I have to ask given how much screen time this issue got — and I apologize for this — but is Emma still a virgin? Because nothing was ever said…
JM: I know! I know, I know, I know! Well, you know, she’s married, they spent the night in Vegas. [Pause] One would only assume…But I haven’t been given the official word that she’s “lost it.” Until I know from the writers for sure I can’t answer.

Anything can happen!
JM: That’s true.

Is there anything you really want for Emma in the second half of the season?
JM: Well, you know, it’s interesting. I’d just love to see where they’re pushing that character. I love how things still kind of evolve slowly. For her I think it’s dealing with the OCD and with the dirt and all that and those things kind of loosening up for her. I would love to see that kind of pushed even more. Why not, you know? Why not? I love that they’ve given her an arc in that way, I felt very lucky for my character with that arc. It’s like, “Let’s keep arcing!”

Definitely. Is Emma in the Superbowl episode?
JM: She’s not in the Superbowl episode, but I was at work a few days when they had been filming and they all looked exhausted. That’s how you know it’s going to be an amazing episode.

Anything else you’re excited about?
JM: Well, I’m excited about Gwyneth [Paltrow (Holly)] coming back.

Oh, definitely. Are Holly and Emma gonna have a throwdown this time around? Even though Emma’s married, she still does kind of have a thing for Will…
JM: Oh, I know, right? One could only hope. One could only hope to have a throwdown with Gwyneth Paltrow. I’d be very honored.

What are you hoping comes Emma’s way in 2011?

    I mostly watch this show, because I keep hoping that Will and Emma will get together. The show will be a huge disappointment if they don’t get married. She is the most interesting character in the show and f’ the dentist! I hated him in full house and I hate him now. He was always so cocky. Emma is sweet and should definitely marry Will. 🙁

    This is the correct blog for anybody who would like to learn about this topic. You are aware of a lot its virtually challenging to argue on hand (not that I truly would want…HaHa). You truly put the latest spin more than a topic thats been revealed for a lot of years. Great stuff, just amazing!
