Natalie Zea takes on the role of Claire Matthews in FOX's new psychological thriller, The Following. We sat down with Natalie recently in LA, where she chatted with us about being one of the few good guys, the love story behind the thriller, and working with incredible actors including series lead Kevin Bacon. The Following premieres tonight, Monday, Jan. 21, at 9/8 Central.
I haven't been writing much about it, but Dirty Sexy Money has been working its way up to a place on my must-watch list. The presence of Peter Krause as idealistic attorney Nick George helps, but he's not the only good thing about the show. In fact, I'm most drawn to the wealthy, dysfunctional Darling clan Nick works for, from secretive patriarch Tripp Darling (Donald Sutherland) to his spoiled starlet daughter Juliet (Samaire Armstrong).
So far, I've enjoyed the over-the-top soapy elements of the show (a photo shoot with lions! a catfight over bangs!) more than the overarching story of Nick's quest to find out who killed his father, who had been the Darlings' lawyer before his death. But I have a feeling the two are going to collide quite nicely in tonight's episode, when Nick and his wife head to Italy to look for clues and end up running into Karen Darling, who never quite knows when to keep her mouth shut. Meanwhile, Letitia finally admits to Tripp that she had a long-running affair with Nick's father — a little secret Nick accidentally spoiled in last week's episode. So much drama! Are you also getting sucked into this saga? To check out two clips from tonight's episode, just read more
