'The Fix' Season 1: Taylor Kalupa says it was "so much fun to work with" prosecutor Marcia Clark and to expect closure by the end
ABC recently released the first episode of its new series 'The Fix.' The show is legal thriller mixed with a confessional and a revenge fantasy, which follows the story of Maya Travis, an LA district attorney. Travis resigns from her job and moves to a ranch after she fails to prosecute an A-list movie star for double murder.
Eight years later, the same star is suspected for another murder, and Travis is called back to the DA’s office for a chance at redemption. Taylor Kalupa plays the role of Jessica Meyer, the girlfriend of Sevy Johnson, the star suspected for murder. Meyer was the person Johnson was suspected of murdering eight years later.
In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide, (MEAWW) Taylor Kalupa revealed how it was to work alongside Marcia Clark, the prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson double murder case that took place in 1995 and the executive producer for the series, and Robin Tunney. Kalupa also spoke about how she felt the audience would react to 'The Fix.'
Starting off, Kalupa revealed how it was to work alongside Clark. "It was amazing, you know, I remember going for the first day and I was like kind of scared that she's going to be very serious, but she's very great. I didn't really fully know what to expect but she is the nicest person. She's so warm and kind and fun as usual. She was so much fun to work with," Kalupa said.
Kalupa added: "Everything was new because I had never met her before. I'd say I learned that she's so down-to-earth and fine. I think she's very fashionable. I would say I think that those are things that I learned about her."
Kalupa also worked alongside Robin Tunney who plays Maya Travis on the series, talking about how it was to work with her, she said: "I went into the set on the first day a little nervous and I was sitting next to her and she was doing a scene and I was prepping for my scene and she started talking to me and I just remember her saying to me. 'Hey, you don't need to be nervous at all. You're going to do an amazing job. Like you're here for a reason you're going to do really awesome,' and that set the tone for the whole show and the very first day I worked. She is very encouraging. She's so nice. She doesn't act like she's above any actor. She's like, you know, we were all working at this level, which is amazing. And I think that's really important on shows because that just sets the tone for the entire thing. Especially when you're the lead."
We asked Kalupa how she thinks the audience would react to the series, and she said: "Into their seats, you know, each episode is kind of like a train where things are happening so quickly and you're left with the end with the cliffhanger, where you want to know what's going to happen next and the nice thing is that as you're watching it, you know that by the end of the season you are going to have closure on it."
