We've all heard stories about mothers who have lifted cars off their children in moments of sheer parental panic, and according to Natalie Zea, The Following is about to show fans what Claire Matthews is really made of.
Beginning with tonight's episode and carrying through the final five chapters of season one, Joe Carroll will push his ex-wife to the breaking point, turning her into an entirely different person. That was just one of the tantalizing teasers Zea dropped when we chatted on the phone about tonight's game-changing The Following!
ETonline: When we last spoke, you'd only filmed one episode of the show, but we were both excited by the promise of that pilot. What's it been like to see the show live up to, and in some ways exceed, that?
Natalie Zea: Well, to be honest, my expectations were right on target. It's funny because people were nervous in anticipating what would happen, but I wasn't. I knew. It's not like I've been doing this for a thousand years, but I've been doing it for at least 100 and there are some sure things out there. They're few and far between, but this was always one of them in my mind.
