PERSON OF INTEREST: Sarah Shahi Teases Tonight’s Shaw Flashback

October 22, 2013 by  

PERSON OF INTEREST’s Shaw might be quasi-part of the team at this point, but much of her past/history has been a mystery at this point. But that will soon change.

“There’s a flashback in [tonight’s episode], where we get to see her, and what made Shaw the way she is,” Sarah Shahi (Shaw) teased.

For Shahi — who knew none of what gets revealed tonight when she initially took the role — discovering things about Shaw as the show progresses is a bit of a mixed bag.

“When I first read the [first] script [Shaw was in], or even when I get anything, I definitely try and fill in my own backstory with it, my own interpretation of why things are [they way they are],” she explained. “[PERSON OF INTEREST creator] Jonah [Nolan] and I have had discussions about her, and what makes her tick. And it’s a very open communication I have with him in terms of ideas and who she is. It’s something we’re still formulating together, so it’s a challenge [to be partially in the dark], yeah. And the best parts of my job are [often] the things that are not on the page. Those [explorations] are the things that make it so much fun to play, and the difference between a two-dimensional character and someone who is multidimensional.”

Any theories about what tonight’s flashback will reveal about Shaw?

PERSON OF INTEREST airs Tuesdays at 10 PM on CBS.
