Q&A with Abigail Spencer
Abigail was super easy to chat with and answered lots of great questions during our call. She’s also a working Mom like so many of us and needs to juggle her acting career as a Mom of an 8 year old son.
She is based in LA and films Timeless in Vancouver so it’s a balancing act logistically and geographically! She’s so thankful for tech so she can stay connected even when she’s on the road. Abigail expressed that she’s so proud of her career and wants to show her son that following your dreams and working hard yields results and a tangible thing she can really be proud of with Timeless. This show is especially exciting for her since it’s something that she can watch with her son – he loves it! I agree as this is a show for all ages from school aged kids to grandparents so it’s something the entire family can enjoy.
Kenzie, 10, and Kyle, 8, watched the pilot with me and also were big fans!
What’s your favorite part of playing Lucy?
Abigail loves so many elements of the show, but says the FASHION is spectacular. Traveling to various time periods her outfits are amazing although she says the CORSETS are horrific and not very comfortable! She loves the 1940’s style the best so far.
Tell us more about Lucy
Abigail chatted about what it’s like to play Lucy and shared lots of thoughts. I think whats really cool about Lucy is that she’s a regular girl – and obviously talented historian – but she is thrown into a role where she basically becomes a spy. She doesn’t have those skills so it’s neat to see her reactions as she’s in action on missions. Abigail said they’ve been able to use her “natural” reactions during shooting – like her bumping her head when sneaking around an air hanger – as it helps get across what it would be like for a regular person – like Lucy – to be thrust into such dangerous situations.
Inside Scoop on Where & When Lucy Will Travel this Season
I couldn’t resist asking Abigail where or should I say, WHEN, Lucy will be traveling. She gave me the rundown of the next 7 episodes. Woohoo! So much to look forward too! I also wondered if Lucy could ever go back to the same time period — in the hopes that she might be able to “FIX” whatever events are changing her own personal “TIMELINE” with her Mom & Sister……. If you haven’t seen the show yet I don’t want to spoil anything – but let’s just say that there is a big trickle down impact on Lucy’s personal life from her time traveling experiences. Lucy said they can NEVER EVER go back to the same time period as that is the number 1 rule of time travel on their Timeless show –you can’t be in the same place twice so she says that will never happen.
Tonight is the Lincoln Assassination in 1865, then she’ll be traveling to 1962, Germany in 1944, the Alamo in 1834, the French & Indian War in 1754, Watergate in 1972 and the events surrounding the Moon Landing in 1969. So much for families to learn while watching this exciting show too!
Abigail explained that the show tries really hard to be true to the events but also reveal some nuggets of those hidden personal stories we might not all be aware of that surround such historic events.
