'Good Girls' star Lidya Jewett claims she is "up for sinking a car in the pond or picking locks" in season 2

If you are looking for a show about unapologetically badass women who would go to any lengths to protect the ones they love while having a little fun along the way, look no further than NBC’s ‘Good Girls.’
Starring Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman and Manny Montana, the crime comedy-drama is about three Detroit mothers who are tired of having things taken away from them and decide to take things into their own hands – by pulling off a supermarket heist and later getting involved in money laundering.
While the women manage to get away with everything without the knowledge of their families, that euphoria does not last too long. For Retta’s character Ruby Hill, especially, getting exposed means facing the disappointed look in the eyes of her loving husband Stan (Reno Wilson), a mall cop turned actual cop. Her reason to turn to a life of crime, much like that of her friends, is one that we could empathize with.
Her daughter Sara, played by Lidya Jewett, has a kidney disease that requires very costly medical procedures, and is the primary reason why Ruby jumps into a tumultuous criminal life.
“Sara is a smart girl and I think over time she would begin to see that the finances in her family are beyond what a policeman earns and a donut shop worker’s pay. I think she would start figuring out something is going on,” Jewett tells MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), adding she is going start focusing more on the fact that her mother broke the law and committed a crime, rather than on her not being sick any longer.
Jewett reiterates, “I think she would have a big problem with it. The Hill family goes to church and hears truth and even works in law enforcement, so I think Sara would really have a problem with it.”
However, she may change her mind if she is included in all the fun action that her mom and her friends get into.
“I don’t know where the writers will take it, but I am up for some fun things like sinking a car in the pond or picking locks,” says Jewett, who believes that the role of Sara has really helped define her as an actor.
The actress, who was recently seen in episode 18 of ‘Grays Anatomy’ season 15 title ‘Add It Up,’ says, “Getting to see Sara and how she handles situations like being sick, but still being a tween, dealing with friends, and family relationships, has all pushed me to think past what I have experienced and see things through her eyes.”
In the ongoing season 2 of ‘Good Girls’ we will see how as a tween she handles relationships.
“She is still a tween and involved in kid things, but she is also very close to her family. I guess she goes through what every other family with tween/teens goes through as they deal with things life throws at them. Stay tuned,” teases Jewett, who says that many relationship-heavy scenes of the show often leads to her and her mother having deep conversations within the realms of what is appropriate for her age, which she is deeply grateful for.
'Good Girls' airs every Sunday 10/9c on NBC.
