Alexis Denisof Interview

Alexis Denisof Talks FINDING CARTER, Tackling Tough Issues, Being a Part Of GRIMM, and Working With Joss Whedon

Source: finding-carter-alexisdenisof

The new MTV series Finding Carter is an emotional family drama that centers on Carter (Kathryn Prescott), a teenage girl who thinks she has the perfect life until one night, after a police bust at a high school party, she is told that the woman who she believes to be her biological mother actually abducted her as a toddler.  Now back at home with her biological family, which includes her parents (Cynthia Watros and Alexis Denisof), twin sister (Anna Jacoby-Heron) and younger brother (Zac Pullam), she must not only figure out who she really is, but also what her place is in her family.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actor Alexis Denisof talked about how he came to be a part of Finding Carter, how challenging the one-hour drama format is, getting to explore the light and dark with this story, the easy chemistry among the actors playing this family, why these life experiences are identifiable for viewers, and not shying away from topics and issues.  He also talked about what his collaboration with Joss Whedon has meant to him, personally and professionally, and how much he’s enjoyed being a part of Grimm.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

QUESTION:  How did this come about for you?

ALEXIS DENISOF:  Honestly, one-hour drama is the hardest format there is.  I think it’s harder than movies, and it’s harder than half-hour comedy.  It’s a grind, and it’s hard to pull off something that people will want to watch and stay with, especially in this day and age with a proliferation of content and when you can easily move onto something else, and things are so available now.  I think this show has got something special that really captivates people.  The way people responded when it was rolling out, on the first night, and the live media that was happening with people jumping on immediately, was really exciting.  

It came to me as a phone call.  I was actually in England, at the time, and my representatives called and told me that there was interest from a show.  They told me the story of it, and I thought, “I will never be able to read that script.  I’m a father, myself, with two young children, and there’s just no way I can handle that.  It’s gonna be too upsetting.  This is one of the two or three worst nightmares, as a parent.”  But they said, “You should read it before you make up your mind.  They really think you might be the guy for this.  They haven’t been able to find quite the right guy, and they want you to look at this.”  

So, they sent it to me and I started reading the script, and I couldn’t put it down.  I was immediately riveted by it.  I was fascinated by the central premise of this young girl with two mothers, one of them biological and one of them emotional.  And I was fascinated by the reintegration of this girl into her family of origin, and how that affected her siblings and her parents, and how her parents had been affected by the original abduction and return.  There are so many angles to this, and so many perspectives.  The characters are so alive and real, and the storyline is so fascinating.  I wasn’t really wanting to do one-hour TV because it’s so hard and I have a young family, but this was too good not to be a part of it.  I just couldn’t say no.  And it is a shorter season, which is very helpful. 

As an actor, do you enjoy working on a project that allows you to use all of your emotions?

DENISOF:  Yeah, it’s fun, if you can get that chance to get light and dark, and not just be stuck in a corner, doing the same thing, over and over and over.  Procedurals can be very satisfying for an audience because a mystery is solved, but it’s a little bit repetitive when you’re a performer because you know that you’re really working towards the resolution of a plot more than the development of a character.  So personally, my taste is towards development of a character, as well as the resolution of a story plot.  I like to find both, if I can, and I think this show does that.  It’s got very three-dimensional characters who are going through some extraordinary plot points in their lives.  How that affects them, as individuals, and how it affects them, in their relationships and as a family unit, is handled so thrillingly by the writers.  We’re really having fun, as actors getting to find the layers in these characters.

When you start a new show, you have to find your groove as a cast, but this show is also really about that, with this family.

DENISOF:  Yeah, that’s a good point.  The story of the show is, “Hey, can these people get along, when they’re thrown together?,” and that’s exactly what, as actors, you’re asked to do when you’re put together on a project.  You don’t know that it’s gonna work.  Nobody really knows until the first day, or the third day, or the third week.  It can take awhile.  But I would say, for sure, we all felt it, right off the bat.  There was a chemistry with this family, and we felt like a family, right away.  There was just an easiness among us and a certain level of reality.  Something just fit about us being together, and I think it holds the story really well.

Is it important to you that this show not shy away from the topics and issues that it’s addressing?

DENISOF:  The writers’ room has been very courageous about just calling something what it is.  And it’s so refreshing for the viewer to see these things that are so powerful in people’s lives, that nobody will talk about, and have them named.  In this show, we name it.  There are a lot of things like that.  In one-hour drama, you get the chance to reveal people’s lives to them.  The viewer gets to identify with and see some of themselves and their own life experiences on screen.  It may not happen the way their own lives did, but it resonates with them.  I think this show has everything.  It has all of the permutations for an audience to say, “Hey, I recognize that.  That reminds me of my life, or somebody close to me.”  I think that helps the audience to care about the story.
