Quantico's Priyanka Chopra gushes about co-star Marlee Matlin saying she's like the mama of the group
ABC's 'Quantico' is on its third and last season after being canceled recently for a renewal. The FBI crime drama didn't do so well for its latest season, ranking an all-time low viewership for its debut episode. While it is time for the show to bid goodbye, if you're a fan of 'Quantico', you'd definitely enjoy the ongoing season 3.
Their most stylish and experimental season so far, season 3 had a lot of new additions. As their style of storytelling changed from flashback sequences to the present storyline, the show made space for a lot of new additions.
You will feel like every episode is relevant and is right off of the news that’s happening right now, or headlines from newspapers.
Perhaps, it had a lot to do with the change in showrunners. 'Quantico' moved over from Josh Safran and went with 'Code Black' creator Michael Seitzman. One of these additions was the character of Jocelyn Turner, a former FBI agent who was rendered deaf after she found herself in the midst of a bombing.
The character is portrayed by actress Marlee Matlin, who is an Academy Award winner, a Golden Globe winner and has four Emmy nominations under her belt. The actress, who is also hearing impaired off the screen, needless to say, has portrayed the character of a badass agent impeccably.
Priyanka Chopra, who is the protagonist of the show Alex Parrish, only had good things to say about her co-star in a recent interview. This is the first time the two have shared a screen together. She said, "Marlee doesn't need any validation from any of us. She's an Oscar-winning actress," said Chopra commenting on what it was like to work with Matlin. "She is supremely funny. She's such a cool girl and a girl's girl."
Chopra also revealed that her co-star is like the mother hen of the group. "She makes sure that the team is always together. She's such a mama. She'll take everyone out for dinner and if we're late she'll like text us all and be like, 'I'm downstairs, why aren't you here yet?' She just keeps us all together and she's super fun."
Gushing further, she said, "Really sassy and so accomplished, not just in her field, but also she's an author… she does so much to give back. She's a woman I really look up to and admire and it's been so wonderful to have her on this season, just to look at what a woman can do." Matlin has authored four books so far — 'Deaf Child Crossing', 'Leading Ladies', 'Nobody's Perfect' and 'I'll Scream Later'.
