Megan Hilty on Season 2 of ‘Smash’

Megan_Hilty_SmashActress Megan Hilty, who plays Ivy Lynn, is keeping on the positive side in light of the wave of changes that has taken over Smash’s second season now that actors Raza Jaffrey, Will Chase, and Brian d’Arcy James have all departed their posts.  “Well, the energy is definitely going to be different. But this kind of change is inevitable in any business, but particularly ours. I’ve certainly experienced it personally. It’s going to be sad not to see my old friends around, but we’re going to make new friends too. It’ll be fun,” Hilty noted optimistically.

The actress also spoke about the behind the scenes changes taking place with Huffington Post.  “I know they’re getting a couple of new writers for that music, and I’m really excited to see who they find. That’s such a huge element of what actually happens in New York. I’m glad they’re capturing that in the storyline!”

And with all of the changes Smash is undergoing it looks like Hilty’s alter ego might fall under that umbrella as well.  “”I’m hoping that she gets it together a little bit, and that she can actually have something she can celebrate and not feel insecure about because of certain people. I’d kind of like her to get something and have it taken away again. But if she just has a moment of happiness that would be great for me!”

NBC’s Smash will return to the network in the midseason line-up.
