John Corbett has met his match in Rebel costar Katey Sagal. The pair play husband and spouse within the upcoming ABC sequence and since they’ve identified one another for 20 years, the chemistry got here naturally. Unfortunately, that’s not at all times the case.
“That’s one of those things that happens or you’ve got to fake it,” the Sex and the City alum, 59, informed Us Weekly solely. “We got lucky. I think we like each other a lot. One of the things on set is when they say action, if you like the person you’re acting with, it just reads. The camera picks it up and small little moments are created. You can just feel it. You can also feel it if it’s with someone you don’t really like! I’ve had to do both. … You’ve gotta hope that the other person likes you and that’s when the chemistry can kind of blossom.”
Corbett, who has starred in dozens of movies and TV reveals since his debut within the early ’90s, added that whereas filming a TV present, generally you see your costars a lot that issues can get “tricky” when you don’t actually get alongside.
“You spend a lot of time together, you have a friendship, but then you kind of become married to that person. Sometimes you see that person you’re working with more than the person you’re actually married to,” the My Big Fat Greek Wedding star defined. “It can get complicated, you know? Little arguments can start about little things that can kind of build. I’ve had that happen too in the past with certain people.”
The actor, who performs a “down-to-earth” but very jealous man named Grady in Krista Vernoff‘s new show, adds that it’s pure — in some conditions — for rigidity to run excessive on sure units.
“It gets really confusing, especially when you’re playing someone’s husband or their wife. There are comments that happen in between takes and the next thing you know, somebody is yelling at you in a scene and you’re not quite sure if they’re yelling at the character or at you,” he added with fun. “It’s a Goddamn confusing thing that we do for a living and I’m still confused by it sometimes!”
Rebel premieres on ABC Thursday, April 8, at 10 p.m. ET.
