Margaret Colin Interview
So what would you say is your favorite characteristic about Eleanor?
Margaret Colin: My favorite quality about her is that she sees the world from her own unique perspective. She’s self centered so I can’t wait to fully grasp the opportunities that are left for her. She is the star of her own world and that’s my favorite quality about her.
Are Blair and Eleanor going to have a heart soon, since Blair is having conflicts with Chuck?
Margaret Colin:I don’t think that they do much of a service to the relationship between Eleanor and Blair. Whenever Blair acts out, even if it might be for her best interest, Eleanor just doesn’t pay attention. It would be a wonderful opportunity because Eleanor is so self absorbed.
So who would you like to interact with more on the show?
Margaret Colin: You know, I just love working with Leighton (Meester). She is a brilliant singer and her acting is fantastic. I completely adore working with her. If I could just keep working with her, that would be fine. Wally (Shawn) is hysterical and anything he does, I get a great kick out of.
Since the kids are in college, what were you like in college?
Margaret Colin: Hmm…I went to Hofstra University and I did not graduate because I started working. I got an agent while I was in college after I was seen in the play, A Clearing in the Woods. I was still a teenager and I commuted from home. I grew up on Long Island in a town called Baldwin. I was absolutely not ready to live on my own in New York but it was the only place that I wanted to be.
But I had a great time in college because I was doing theatre. You could legally drink at 18 in those day so I could drink and dance, work on plays, take 17 credits..and I really started to find myself. It was wonderful. I was one of those crazy drama majors. I had a great time and I made life long friends that I still see on a regular basis. We had drive. We had drive. I wish that for all young people. Have drive, a passion, an interest. Go for it. Try.
Definitely. So speaking of theatre, when can we see you on Broadway again?
Margaret Colin: Aw thanks! I don’t know, it’s a little slow for me stage wise. I did Six Degrees of Separation over the summer with the wonder Tim Daly at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. That was heaven. Maybe something will open up this fall. I would love to do a big commercial role on Broadway. That’s exactly what I’m looking for.
So back to Gossip Girl, what has been your favorite wardrobe piece so far?
Margaret Colin: My favorite piece has to be the piece that they made for Eleanor’s wedding. It was just gorgeous. We had multiple fittings on it and I was just so thrilled with it. It was beautiful.
How does the fandom change if at all from summer into fall and winter and on location to in studio?
Margaret Colin: Well they are smart and selective. They don’t go after the mothers, they go after Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, and the guys. When we are in the studio, there are not so many people. On location in the city, it’s pretty fierce. And from what I understand, the fans were very enthusiastic when they shot in Paris as well.
I loved you on Medium! So what are your upcoming projects?
Margaret Colin: The independent film that I shot awhile back, The Missing Person is on DVD and Netflix. It stars Amy Ryan, it’s very noir, and I’m kind of a scammer in the film. It’s a beautiful black and white film.
