The Lying Game premieres on ABC Family TOMORROW!
Star Alexandra Chando sat down with press earlier this week to chat about playing two different characters, memorable scenes and what she’s doing for the premiere. Check it:
On playing dual roles: “Itâ€™s first a blessing, first of all, to just have the opportunity to play two roles. To be able to develop two characters and kind of find different things about them and explore them each and every day has been incredible. It does come with its challenges, though. I have 15-hour work days and Iâ€™m working an awful lot compared to what I would be working if I was just playing one character.
Itâ€™s a challenge in the sense, besides the hours and the exhaustion, just trying to keep them straight sometimes. Weâ€™re about to embark on Episode 6. Today, we start it. itâ€™s gotten a little bit easier to really feel like these characters and understand them, but there are moments where a little bit of Sutton will creep into Emma and vice versa. Itâ€™s definitely been a challenge and Iâ€™d say, as well, having to act with a green screen or an eye line with an X on the wall has become easier, but it was definitely in a challenge in the beginning.”
On the most incredible moment on set so far: “There have been a lot of incredible moments this season so far. I would have to say thereâ€™s like a little snippet of it in one of the trailers. Itâ€™s from Episode 2. Blair Redford and I were out on the set is called The Overlook, but they used a crane shot. All you see is grass for miles and miles. It looks like weâ€™re in Africa, but weâ€™re dancing in this grass. That was certainly memorable. It was kind of surreal. It was beautiful.”
On her premiere night plans: “Iâ€™m not sure! Iâ€™m working, so it just depends what time we get out. I think weâ€™re all very excited. It just kind of worked out that weâ€™re all going to be working on our premier night. I think originally the whole cast had planned to get together and watch it together, but itâ€™s kind of a tentative thing now. I may be sitting alone on my couch watching it on DVR.”
