Polished Edge: AnnaLynne McCord of ‘Dallas’
Q: Do you view your new “Dallas” character, ranch hand Heather, in the tradition of the strong female characters in the show’s past and current versions?
A: Yes, and I think that stays true to the good ol’ South, too. I’m a Southern girl from Georgia, and there’s a saying we have ... “Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness.” We can be real polite, and we can be real nasty. We don’t want you to bring it out of us, but it’s there.
Q: So much of your “Dallas” work is with Jesse Metcalfe as Christopher. Did the two of you adjust to each other fairly quickly?
A: Absolutely. I very much enjoy working with Jesse, but he tried to warn me that he can come on a little strong with how much he cares about the work. And I was like, “I can handle you, honey!” It’s been all good fun, and I appreciate his dedication.
He cares intensely about doing his absolute best. He’s very earnest, and I think that comes through with his choices for Christopher -- and those particular qualities are what attract Heather in the storyline. She picked a good one this time, and you can see that in the dynamic they have. Anytime you talk about keeping things casual, you know what happens.
Q: How has the rest of the “Dallas” cast been toward you?
A: Heather didn’t encounter any of the other characters until a bit later, and I was thankfully more comfortable in my role and what I was doing by then. Everyone has been so lovely and welcoming.
