rolled around, Helena was a whole new person: sexy, sultry, nice.
Fans often call you the most beautiful woman on TV. That’s because they see me after seven hundred hours of makeup and hair. You have to throw yourself into it totally, otherwise it doesn’t work. you have to do a lot of intimate scenes with each other and I think afterwards we both felt a bit disconnected …
How does it feel when you hear something like that? They don’t see me when I wake up in the morning and get out of bed. And it’s afterwards, when you might feel a bit, just a bit weird. your brain and your body have stopped talking to each other because they’re not, they’re not listening to each other anymore.
I’ve never been to one of them, but that’s what they say. There were a lot of different women who had come from all over the world actually and I think they all had a wonderful time, too. There were changes in store for Helena this season. It’s more of a journey than we’ve seen in previous seasons. I’ve done stuff with Kate [Moennig], who plays Shane, and it’s just been interesting to watch her try and find a path that is going to help her now that her life is so radically different. ” It’s really quite horrible but I don’t know where that comes from.
there was this one woman who’d come from an island called Malta, which weirdly, I used to live on — a tiny little island in the Mediterranean — and she was a teacher, and she was gay and she’d come on around and she said that [since Malta is] a Catholic country, she could never be openly gay there and keep her job, [but] it was just so heartwarming to talk to these people, these women who’d traveled to be at a convention with like minded people. And you know, she hasn’t had that much success actually, a modicum of success, but not much. You know that you populate the fantasies of perhaps a fourth of the lesbians around the TV viewing globe, at this point.
Helena is an Alpha female who almost always publicly or recklessly displays her affection toward accompanying female companions.
Dylan had a boyfriend and insisted she was straight, but started an affair with Helena as part of a con she and her boyfriend set up.
[It’s hard] to come in and be the character that everyone hates.
That was quite hard at the beginning, but interesting and different for me … But, sometimes, there, there’s like a hangover from it.
And even though Dylan turned out to be a bit of a cad, lovely actor Rachel Shelley, the woman who gave life to Helena, is still basking in that post-coital glow.
With dozens of TV appearances from this year and it seems like you’re the character who is really gaining popularity.
And that is really nice to sort of meet the people who, cause it’s one thing being an actress who makes shows to entertain people, right?
