Party flight attendants, handsome passengers, murderers, mysterious women, and jets flying around amazing world destinations are just some of the elements that make HBO Max’s new series, The Flight Attendant, very juicy. The eight-part show of “Big Bang Theory” starring Kaley Cuoco lets viewers guess each episode, following the popular 2018 novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian.
Things get worse for the flight attendant when Kathy (Cuoco) wakes up at the wrong hotel next to the corpse without remembering the night before. Throughout the show, she embarks on a journey to discover what happened that night and whether she is innocent or guilty. This is beginning to become clearer through flashbacks.
The series will premiere on HBO Max this week, with the first two episodes removed on November 26th. Michelle Gomez, who plays the mysterious Miranda in the series, sat down with Metro to discuss her role and what happened in the show. Pandemic.
What was your first interest in signing on to this project?
The fact that Cary was actually an EP and a star was one of my biggest attractions. I’ve been a big fan of her for years and was excited to be able to participate in what she’s actually doing. I can also have a good time if I can be comfortable in a role that is perceived as a villain and find a human and flawed way within that area. I thought Miranda could offer something like that.
How do you describe your character and what do you like about her?
I love her being all business, not nonsense, and her work incredibly good. This is a lot of sabotage and manipulation. I love her mystery. I love her complexity. You like her one minute, but the next moment you’re not sure of her. She is a very powerful woman who is confusing and basically takes what she wants and does not apologize for it. She’s like Margaret Thatcher in “Flight Attendant”.
You said it’s comfortable to play a villain, but why do you think you’re attracted to these roles?
When it comes to screens, I don’t think I’m particularly attracted to them. My face is probably more attracted to them, and casting directors need to fill their role with aesthetics. With this face, with all angles and sharpness, it’s hard to play anything other than the villain I guess. I haven’t played much Fiona or Sharon in my career. I’ve never played a neighbor who likes the software next door. It depends on how many times you look on the screen. But the truth is that I’m really pretty stupid and a little geeky, and so I get the chance to have that kind of dichotomy. Contrary to what I look like, I bring warmth and liking to the villain of that stereotype.
Did you read the novel before you got into this role?
I didn’t have time to prepare, so I stopped shooting “Sabrina’s Calm Adventure”. [and left] Literally the next day.It all happened right away, and I’m really very happy just to dig into Steve’s [Yockey] With this version of the book and his stunning reenactment, I wasn’t stuck or afraid of what had happened before in terms of how Miranda fleshed out in the book. I knew that if the character was developed through Steve’s eyes, it would probably be in a different turn. That means I have a chance to bring something unique and fresh that wouldn’t have happened if I tried to reproduce what I did.
When the COVID hit, production of the show was in progress, and you had to stop and resume later in the year. What was that experience like?
Perhaps this kind of global reset has given us a pause in the process for the world, and [it’s] For all of us, there is a new perspective of stopping and reflecting. This can never be done in this crazy, fast-moving world we are in. So you probably gave the production a moment of reset and pause. Well, I don’t know what it would have been if we continued. When it was closed, we had three episodes, but because of the pandemic, and the production has time to actually reflect what was already in the can, perhaps another choice as we have I think those last episodes have probably changed because I had time to do it. It’s time to move forward.
How did you work with Kaley Cuoco and other cast members?
First and foremost, Kaley is just as good as a human being and sets the stage. It’s so warm and genuine that I’m working with someone who has this instinctive and wonderful type of experience.You can play and find things that aren’t necessarily on the page that day [and that] Unless someone like Kaley is confident and free to us and really enjoys it, it won’t always bear fruit. I found out that I am with everyone who worked with “The Flight Attendant”.
This show brings drama, but it has a comedy edge when examining dark subjects. What do you think the balance will bring to the viewers you see?
I think comedy is a very powerful tool in any story. You can escape with so much truth, credibility, and a kind of strict honesty and tell it with a joke. Comedy is a lot about observation, and the reason we find it interesting is because we see ourselves in it. Kaley has this extraordinary character, now relentlessly said to be great, and she has a humanity that doesn’t make it feel judgmental or bad about herself. The comedy married to the drama and the thrill of “The Flight Attendant” will not be patronized as an audience and you can enjoy the story, but you will not be overwhelmed or overwhelmed by it. It ignited. The show’s tones and looks are incredibly gorgeous, making you immerse yourself in the fantasy of the story, cheerful and inspiring.
“The Flight Attendant” will premiere on HBO Max on November 26th.
