In just two seasons, Lisa Goldstein went from new girl on the block to a full-fledged member of One درخت Hill. Now, as she embarks on her third season, Goldstein discusses adjusting to fame, what she has in common with the quirky yet lovable Millicent Huxtable and why she’s in agreement with co-star Lee Norris.
TeenDramaWhore: Pre-One درخت Hill, آپ primarily appeared in musicals. What made آپ switch to TV?
Lisa Goldstein: I never really decided to “make the switch.” I have a degree in musical theatre and that is the genre I kept getting cast in. I freelanced with ویژن ٹیلی and film agents when I lived in both New York and Orlando. I was constantly auditioning for TV and film while performing in professional theatre. My agent in Orlando called and told me there was an audition for One درخت Hill, and told me I could either audition for the receptionist یا the quirky fashion assistant, “Millicent”. I jumped at the chance to audition for the “quirky assistant”, I thought it would be fun. I put myself on tape and a week later heard that I had booked the role. I had my friend Nicole listen to the voicemail my agent left because I didn’t believe it. It seemed too easy!!
TDW: What are some of the biggest differences between working in theater and working on a weekly ویژن ٹیلی show?
Goldstein: There are so many!! But, two of the biggest are rehearsal time and the size of your performance. I was used to having weeks of rehearsal, and on a TV set آپ have about five minutes. It was quite a shock to not be able to rehearse the scenes over and over before performing them. Also, in front of an audience آپ have to project your voice and performance to the back of the theatre, but in front of a camera everything is so much مزید subtle. I’d look like a total idiot if I performed in front of a camera the way I do in front of an audience. Being too big in front of the camera is actually a big fear of mine. A lot of directors come on set and tell me to be bigger and to do more.
TDW: What is it like working in Wilmington when شائقین are such a constant presence?
Goldstein: It is both flattering and overwhelming. I’m pretty shy in front of new people, so to have have all these people around who know my name is a lot for me. But it’s also wonderful to know that people have taken to Millie.
TDW: How do آپ think Millicent has changed over the 2 seasons we’ve seen her?
Goldstein: She is much مزید confident and I think she has Mouth [Lee Norris] to thank for that. She found someone to love her quirks and all, which made her perfectly OK with being exactly who she is. She has also become مزید accomplished at work and gained مزید responsibility which helps with the confidence as well.
TDW: What was your reaction last season when آپ found out Millie slept with Joe Manganiello’s Owen? (Episode 6.13: Things A Mama Don’t Know)
Goldstein: I pretty much had a دل attack. Just kidding! I honestly thought it was kind of a weird choice it seemed to come out of nowhere, but I trust Mark [Schwahn]. I know it made the season much مزید interesting for Lee and me. Things were getting a little stagnant and Millie and Mouth needed something big to happen, and that is exactly what did it.
TDW: What can آپ tell us about Millie’s story this season?
Goldstein: Ooooooooooooh! I can tell آپ it’s good….reeeeeeeeallly good!!
TDW: Do آپ have a پسندیدہ scene, storyline یا memory from the set?
Goldstein: My پسندیدہ storyline is this year’s, and I’m SWORN to secrecy. : ) I also loved the stuff in the episode where Millie finds Gigi in Mouth’s بستر [Episode 6.10, Even Fairytale Characters Would Be Jealous].
TDW: Lee Norris کہا he wants Millie to end up Mrs. McFadden. Do آپ agree?
Goldstein: Yes, absolutely. They’re great for each other. They fought for each other when times got really tough. They respect each other’s profession and are so supportive of one another. And they are in love.
TDW: Do آپ share any similarities with Millie?
Goldstein: I think it’s really hard not to have similarities with the character’s I play. I was taught to always bring a little bit of “me” to every character. So I certainly have similarities with Millie. I am a diligent worker, I am loyal, and can be pretty shy. However, I am not neurotic یا jealous, and I don’t snore for exactly seven منٹ at 2AM every night. : )
TDW: How has it been dealing with the loss and addition of cast members?
Goldstein: I never really worked with Chad [Michael Murray, Lucas] یا Hilarie [Burton, Peyton]. I miss seeing them around set, but since I never had scenes with them it’s not all that different for me personally. The addition of cast members has been wonderful. I work with Jana Kramer, who plays Alex, a lot. We have a lot of fun together, she is hilarious.
TDW: Once OTH ends, do آپ plan on focusing on your strictly-acting career یا do آپ plan on going back to musicals?
Goldstein: I hope to do both. I love doing TV and I love doing theatre, and hopefully, once One درخت ہل, لندن ends, I can continue to do both.
TDW: Will آپ ever get the chance to sing on OTH? یا maybe release an album?
Goldstein: Since there are already two female cast members that sing [Bethany Joy Galeotti, Haley; Kate Voegele, Mia], I highly doubt I’ll ever sing on the show, but آپ never know. I also don’t really have any desire to release an album. I’d rather just sing on stage, but… again… آپ never know.
TDW: Do آپ have a Twitter account یا any interest in getting one?
Goldstein: I had a twitter account for about 2.5 سیکنڈ and couldn’t stand it. So no I don’t have one and I don’t plan on getting one.
