Megan Hilty on the End of ‘Smash’ and What’s Next for Her

Megan-HiltyIn the end, Smash is, at best, an imperfect television series.  It took an interesting industry — the behind-the-scenes creation of Broadway productions — and incredibly talented singers, like Megan Hilty, yet somehow failed to make it interesting to general audiences or even Broadway diehards.  That is the main reason why Smash is wrapping up its run at the end of this season (only the show’s second).  Hilty, who played the often mean Broadway hopeful Ivy Lynn, spoke to iDesign about the end of the series

Hilty expresses hope that fans of the show will be satisfied by the series finale — though it wasn’t entirely written that way.  She says, “We have the greatest fans of the show and they’re very, very loyal, but I hope that the season finale is satisfying for people.  I feel like it will be because they kind wrote it just in case it didn’t get renewed, that it would wrap everything up. I think people will be pleased with it. It won’t be like ‘what would have happened?'”

Despite the show’s declining fortunes since its post-Super Bowl premiere last year, Hilty has only good things to say about her character’s role on the show.  She explains, “I was happy.  Don’t get me wrong, I love playing the mean girl! I love getting to do and say things that I would never dream of in real life, so it was really fun the first season and second season, it was great to round her out a little bit and show her compassion and her humility a little bit more.”  She also called working on the series, “the greatest job ever.”

As for what’s next for the stunning singer who just released her debut album in March, Hilty confesses, “I just want to keep working.  I’ll be lucky to get to do anything. Now I’m able to look into what’s next.  I’m excited. Hopefully it’s Broadway or maybe more TV. I don’t know! Whoever will let me work!”
