Sarah Steele Interview

Sarah Steele Talks Growing Up on ‘The Good Fight’ and Playing the “Anti-Kalinda”

Source: hollywoodreporter.com
The fan-favorite talks to THR about juggling the spinoff and Broadway, tackling politics onscreen and a potential Alan Cumming return.
Going all the way back to the beginning, do you remember how the role of Marissa originally came up and how the role was first described to you?
It’s so funny and amazing that it’s turned into what it is. I auditioned for it my junior year in college and at the time I auditioned for it, it was only supposed to be two episodes of introducing this character of Alan Cumming’s daughter. I went in and there was no discussion of, who is she? I went in, I got the job and did the first couple of episodes. Then The Good Wife sort of went on. I was a fan of the show, I watched the show and there were a few seasons where I wasn’t in it at all and then I came back in season six. So I wasn’t really expecting that. I thought, ‘OK, that was a great job.’ And then I got to have this much more major arc than I had anticipated on The Good Wife and now I’m getting to carry it through as a full-fledged character on this show. I feel like it’s been a totally unconventional way of becoming a series regular on a show.
Did the Kings give you any indication way back when that they might bring you back? Did you have any sense that the character had clicked with viewers?
Not at all. There was some episode in season six where I got to kind of do a lot; it was the first episode where Marissa comes to Alicia’s door and says, “I’m your body woman.” When she’s first having that interaction and got to kind of do some more meaty stuff. Then I got an email from my agent that said, “The Kings love what you’re doing and there’s a feeling that you’re going to be with us for awhile.”
Why do you think the Alicia-Marissa dynamic worked so well?
People feel comforted by Marissa’s presence, and Alicia kind of had that response to her. She is sort of fearless and isn’t intimidated by anyone and I think that’s a really nice energy to have around, especially when you’re on something like a campaign where you’re caught up in a lot of BS. It’s nice to have someone who cuts through all of that and Marissa has a quality of that to her.
Going from season two to season four is a big time jump in a young person’s life. What was it like stepping back into that character and figuring out who she was at a more mature point in her life?
Well, it’s funny you’re saying that but I really feel like I’m going through that for the first time now with the character. On The Good Wife, it felt to me like, oh that girl that I played a few years older but she still was very much someone’s daughter on that show. It felt like a similar thing to me. But now that I’m getting to play her on The Good Fight where she is a full-fledged person working in an office and you never see her parents, I really feel like I’m getting to do that now.
So how has it been navigating that evolution on The Good Fight? What were your discussions with the Kings at the beginning of The Good Fight about having Marissa come back?
They were so sweet. They sort of quote unquote “pitched” her to me as eventually someone who’s going to become an anti-Kalinda in that Marissa is interested in investigating. She has a way of getting information out of people that is very different from Kalinda. Kalinda is sneaky and mysterious and Marissa is very open and is easily underestimated and people sort of tell her things sometimes without even realizing that they’ve done it because she’s easy to talk to. That was sort of the discussion that we had when we were first talking about.
Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) and the other investigators on the original show were such beloved characters. When you heard that pitch about becoming the anti-Kalinda, did you feel pressure? What was your initial reaction?
I did a very silly thing which was to go online and read an article that came out that I was going to do it. Of course the comments were like, ‘Does Marissa have what it takes to be the new Kalinda?’ I was like, ‘Oh OK, got to x out of that window.’ I was definitely intimidated. I loved Kalinda, but that’s why it was comforting to me in that conversation I had with them that the idea is not for Marissa to be Kalinda. The idea is for her to to very much be her own person and I do think that it’s a very smart move in that you do trust Marissa to get to the heart of things. So I was very flattered that we had built something where people feel that way; that she’s smart and she’s on it. It’s super fun to play a woman like that on TV.
You appeared a bit in the last season of The Good Wife so when and how did you first hear about the spinoff?
I actually went to The Good Wife wrap party and I was sad. I was like, ‘Oh, gosh I’m not going to see these people. I love this crew. I love this cast. I love this writing.’ I was sad to say goodbye to all of it. And then word started running around the party, like, there’s a budget due for the spinoff, it’s really happening. And then the Kings approached me and they knew that I was still doing The Humans. They were like, “Can we steal you for the spinoff in September?” I was like, “Uh, definitely, of course.”
The Humans was very critically acclaimed as was your performance in it so how difficult was that decision process like of figuring out how and if you could juggle both projects?
It was not easy. Very understandably, both jobs were very apprehensive about me doing it. I only ended up missing eight shows of The Humans for The Good Fight. Since The Humans was a family play, the cast was very specific, so if one person was out, it changes the whole dynamic of the play. It was honestly the hardest thing that’s ever happened in my professional life, trying to balance both of those jobs at once. Also just because you’re on stage until 10 p.m., really at a very high energy level, and then you have to wind down for a few hours to wake up at 5:30 [a.m.] for the TV show. It was crazy and it was right after the election so it was a pretty hard time. But I’m so glad they were so generous to allow me to stay in the pool and still do the TV show. I’m so grateful I got to close out that beautiful chapter in my life that was The Humans.
