Q: How has it been to work with so many other strong actresses on “Political Animals”?

A: There’s very little posturing or controlling or intimidation. It’s much more about inclusion and team building, so I think it’s a chance for us to tell the story of how women deal differently and more directly and more practically, because we basically are practical human beings.

That’s why I’m so pleased to be playing this character. I want to be part of saying to women, “We can do this, and we need to do this, and we need to do it now.”

Q: Were such other film-based actresses as Glenn Close, Holly Hunter and Kyra Sedgwick inspirations in your making a move into weekly television?

A: You know, I don’t really think like that. I was weighing a couple of movie offers, and it was really the material in this case. I do find TV very interesting, because it deals with subjects that films have sort of lost interest in ... like human relationships. I was drawn to that.

Q: Your father, Sylvester “Pat” Weaver, created “Today” and “Tonight” while at NBC. Do you consider your television work a tribute to him?

A: I grew up worshipping my father’s vision of how TV has the capability of bringing art and issues and philosophy and great drama into the home. My father has passed away, but he’d be so excited about this. This is exactly the kind of show he would believe in.
