Eyes on Callie Thorne with the Return of Necessary Roughness
Callie Thorne defines what it is like to be 43, single, and fabulous.
As a regular cast in “Rescue Me” and the upcoming season of “Necessary Roughness”, Callie opens up about her new busy schedule to Buddy TV.
On Starting the 2nd Season of Necessary Roughness: We did have a nice, long hiatus, and it is always a little nerve-wracking coming back into a show. And before this, I didn’t have so much to think about. This was the first time coming back into the second season of the show being number one on the call sheet. I was very nervous about that.
On Her Role as Dr. Dani and Mehcad Brook’s Character TK: He think of her in this maternal way, which I think kind of backfires a little bit when we come back to that. Because now it’s almost like he’s rebelling as a child or, you know, a teenager or whatever would with the parent. And he isn’t accepting what really happened to him.
He’s a wild and sort of extraordinary character. He’s even more so, you know, when we come back, but not for the best reasons.
On Portraying Dr. Dani’s Character: A lot of what I bring to the character myself is a lot of my own mother. I grew up with a single mother, and so there’s a lot of the tone and behavior that I think of in terms of my own mom, as well as the woman that the show is based on.
The character is based on a very strong woman. She’s sort of, you know… I’ve always said she’s this force to be reckoned with. And that is in the writing, because she is in the writers’ office. She’s always there to be part of what the particular patient of the week is. She’s also there to make sure that the character is very true to herself and the circumstances.
Necessary Roughness season 2 premieres on Wednesday, June 6 at 10pm on USA.
