Zap2it spoke with Melinda Clarke and here's what she has to say about her character, the finale, and her hopes for season 2!
"I can say that somebody dies in the finale."
When asked if she fears that Amanda might be next on the chopping block, she says
"Hopefully the show continues for three or four seasons or even more, but my opinion is that by the time we know the show is ending, I would say that Amanda might die. She died in the other series and all the baddies might have to go away at some point. Anybody can be knocked off. We still need to have good and bad, so hopefully Amanda has a lot more!"
About the show's chances for a second season, she says
"A lot of shows, the freshman year is the best year and other shows have better years to come and I think this show will just keep getting better because now we've really established important relationships and I think what audiences love is the connection between people. We have this high production value and the show looks amazing."
"Season 2 could be really, really exciting and I'm hoping, personally, that it has a lot to do with the relationships because in the finale, there's a moment, for me as an actor, there's one line where you see her as a human being. Well, there's a few moments, but she's doing what needs to be done."
Clarke hopes to learn more about Amanda's back story,
"I think it would be smart to do it very minimally, a little bit here and there. There's so many stories to tell, but I want to keep this character mysterious because it keeps it scary, dangerous and unexpected."
"Even though the audience hasn't seen it, she's constantly working behind the scenes to know what's going on. I think she knew something was going on but she's so patient and so controlled and so elevated, which is why she's playing this game. She'll still be playing this game in the next two episodes and Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) is in really deep sh*t."
