“The Affair” fans, did you miss any of our exclusive chats with the cast and crew of the Golden Globe-winning Showtime drama? We’ve listed them all below for your viewing pleasure, including our interviews with creator Sarah Treem and stars Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson and Maura Tierney.
Ruth Wilson on the appeal of playing multiple versions of the same character: “That was partly why I was intrigued by the job. I got to play two different versions of this character – actually three different versions with the present day [interrogation scenes] as well … It was really interesting as an acting exercise, and quite hard work, but really satisfying.”
Joshua Jackson on the show’s complex take on infidelity: “There’s no objective truth. You can’t get comfortable with any of the stories you’re being told because every time you’re being told the story, you’re being told somebody’s perspective. It’s a heartbreakingly honest thing that you can’t actually — no matter how much you want to sometimes, or don’t want to other times — truly understand your spouses, your partners’ perspective. You can never actually walk a mile in their shoes.”
Maura Tierney on opening up the show in season two: “We will see it, actually, next season. We’ll see both Helen and Cole’s perspective. I actually just got the scripts, so I don’t know what it is yet, but I’ll find out as soon as I hang up with you guys.”
Sarah Treem on writing herself out of corners: “After a little mental gymnastics … I actually love what we came up with in the end. I don’t think the audience is ever going to see it coming, but when you look back on it in retrospect, I think you’re going to realize it has been embedded since the beginning of the show.”
