Polished Edge: Jenna Dewan-Tatum of ‘Witches of East End’ on Lifetime
Q: How is your recently having become a mom affecting your role as a sorceress’s daughter on “Witches of East End?”
A: Doing a couple of the scenes, realizing that I’m saying these certain lines, it added so much more depth to what I was saying, given that now I have this little soul ... this life that I’m taking care of. We’re dealing with so many family issues (in the show), loss and finding out truths and just all this stuff; having done that before having my daughter, it probably would have come out a little bit differently.
I think that that’s something that I was really looking forward to about becoming a mom. In life and in your art, art is life and in your work kind of deepens everything a little bit -- and especially on this show, because this is all about the family dynamics between a mother and her daughters. And here I am with a daughter.
Q: Is there any chance that your husband, Channing Tatum, will appear on the series?
A: Maybe he’ll come on and do it. Maybe he’ll be a bad guy. That would be fun.
Q: If you were a witch, which special power would you most like to have in your own life?
A: I’d like to snap my fingers and be asleep, because I’m a little sleep-deprived at the moment. But on the show, (my character) Freya is very ruled by her emotions, so my power sort of comes from my emotions and how I’m feeling and how the situation is making me feel.
