Celebrity Extra: What was your first reaction when reading the script and found out what happened and the character that is going to play?
Kim Raver: It was devastating and surprising move all at the same time. And being a mother, I thought, what I want to go? And as an actress, to go through all those things. And while you think, wow this is a great opportunity. And I think also because it was a true story that moved. And then you’re thinking about the possibility of this type is a project I want to do. I’m on a short pause. And indeed, the director sent me the book of Katy. I was really moved by this experience. But what motivated me was forgiveness. What made me think, wow, this woman is a very interesting woman. How I can handle if you were walking in the shoes? So that’s what led me to do this project.
CE: Katy is a strong woman – incredibly strong. What were some other things about her that you really could relate to and that made you really want to do?
KR: Well, I shot Grey’s Anatomy 10-and-a-half months a year, and there’s this small window to find something else you really want to take that time to do. And this guy came and projects fit into that time. I do not know, related the story of how she was going to pass this with two children. I was reading the book and was talking about how he was able to function after this tragedy, their children. And I thought if it comes to this tragedy or a tragedy or something that other life to others who can relate to that. His need to know what happened is something very powerful about how he went about who he is. I just thought it was a very complicated, interesting and multi-layered, and I liked that.
CE: You had the opportunity to meet her in real life. What is she?
KR: It’s very powerful. She came to one of the tests and when we met … was really powerful. It is a very special woman to really know all these personal data after reading your book and then get to meet him. It was a special moment. There are certain people who affect your life and your story is a really interesting story. And I mean, yes, there is a lesson in drinking and partying and accountability. Maybe because I have children, it is interesting in that it reminds people that actions have consequences. But it was bigger for me than that. It was more about the journey of this woman.
EC: When I was reading the article Touch That public relations department for life sent along, I could not understand how I could make friends with Katy murderer of her husband. But after seeing the film, I understood.
KR: For me, one of the things that are interesting is, I can get an idea of what I believe forgiveness is, but I’m not sure how I would handle that. But after seeing the above and the example of someone who was able to take your pain and turn it into a kind of gift, lighting was incredible forgiveness. And I find it very interesting. This film can stimulate conversation and make people discuss the notion of forgiveness and what we think we could handle and what not.
EC: Your character goes through hell. How do we keep all to itself and hold together?
KR: It was a real challenge for me in the script. How in real life that took five years and could be understood that the trip, and when it was compressed into six months for the film, it was really difficult. There are so many things that come into it, you just kind of manage it and find a way.
What do we do when we are hit with a moment of crisis? Who we are, and I think it’s an interesting question to do. He had his sons, who helped her. And I think it is a defense mechanism is to control everything. I’m talking about the character I play. I do not know if that’s true about the real Katy. But with my Katy, I have to keep for my children, I have to go ahead and keep everything clean and organized and together, it was his way of functioning. When I talked to the real Katy, she said she was capable of – so devastating and painful as it was – make it a gift. And I think that’s true in my life. There are moments that seem devastating and painful, and I hope that will come across and find it as a gift.
EC: With a thick material to play, how was the atmosphere on set?
KR: Thank God for Greg Grunberg. I kind of just dived into the role, because it is a great opportunity. But then it became what it is, number of days that had to be in this dark, horrible place. I like to be where I am, but I could not do that in this paper. It was very dark and painful too. And Greg has an incredible sense of humor. He has a great work ethic, so I have it. Just when things were rolling and had to go, we went and we were there. But in the middle – which is just a pure pleasure. It is hysterically funny. And it was really good for our team. We had a very dedicated and hardworking crew. We have worked a few hours, long time. So the whole atmosphere was strangely fun. It was the only way to get through this very heavy, the real life drama.
EC: I had the feeling that Greg would say that about, because I thought he would be the one to help keep the light for you.
KR: It did. There were a couple of times I could not keep them together because we were laughing so hard when we were filming. And you really need that when you are dealing with this type of material. Otherwise it’s just a long period of darkness.
CE: My last question is about Grey’s Anatomy: Can you give some clue as to what to expect next season?
KR: I cannot give a lot, as you know, or I’ll lose my job (laughs). But I will say I’m pretty sure that everything can and will always change. I’m pretty sure that the triangle with Teddy, Owen and Cristina is done. And while I’m sad for Teddy because it is really difficult for her, I’m just happy as a fan. The story of Owen and Cristina has much more to explore. And I think that’s great. I am happy not to continue with the love triangle, because otherwise we would have become redundant. It was a good way to establish Teddy. And so in the first couple of episodes that can actually see Teddy kind of have something romantic with a new person. She will try.
