Marta Walsh: How did you decide on a career in acting, and what were some of your first breaks as an actress?
Jaime Ray Newman: I did my first professional play when I was 12. A local theater came to my middle school to audition girls for a new Israel Horowitz play, and I got the gig. My parents first reaction was “There are two people in this household with careers and you’re not one of them”. But after much begging, they acquiesced, and away I went. My first real break was playing Kristina Cassadine on “General Hospital”. I was fresh out of college and thrilled to be working.
MW: What attracted you to Kat Rougemont’s character on the new ABC show “Eastwick”?
JRN: I love playing Kat. She’s quite unlike me, actually, so I really get to dig and create a character. She’s undertaken so much responsibility (5 children, a full time job, a husband who may as well be one of her kids) that she hasn’t had a second for herself since she was 18. She’s struggling to find her voice again, and that is always fascinating to me. Playing someone in deep conflict is always the most interesting.
Watch “Eastwick” trailer below, the show looks so cute! It’s like “Sex and The City” meets “Charmed”.
