Interview: Rhona Mitra Talks ‘The Last Ship’ and Dives Deep into Her Character (video)
Rhona Mitra stars as Dr. Rachel Scott in TNT’s The Last Ship. The show, also starring Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle and Charles Parnell, is the story of what happens when a global pandemic wipes out eighty percent of the planet’s population and the crew of a lone naval destroyer must find a way to pull humanity from the brink of extinction.
I talked to her at a roundtable interview at Comic-Con and walked away liking her even more than I did before the interview. She knows her character in the show back and forth, up and down and every way imaginable. You can tell by the way she answers the questions and how detailed she gets. It’s very cool to watch. At one point, she almost apologizes for talking so much about it. No apologizes needed! I loved it.
- She’s asked about a possible relationship with Eric Dane’s Tom Chandler character.
- If her character is confident she’s going to find a cure
The Last Ship airs on Sundays at 9pm on TNT
