Q: What is your character's relationship with her son, Noah's character?
A: My character is trying to get her son to expand his horizons to include romance and work. She sees her son in his early thirties without any sign of being able to have any kind of relationship, and she's very concerned. He also has numerous degrees but is not committed to any work. He gets a job as a librarian, which is deeply disappointing to my character after all the years of studying. But then his life turns around.
Q: What does Noah Wyle bring to the role of the librarian?
A: Noah carries, perhaps not even aware of it, a boyish innocence that's subject to curiosity. He also has a look that translates, "He's on to something." I think these qualities serve the script very well.
Q: What intrigued you the most about this story?
A: What intrigued me about this story is that it's a woman who is the action hero who paves the way. Usually it's the man in the story who is the action hero. She takes out a machete and clears the jungle. It's a fun switch.
