First of all, thanks to everyone that left comments on previous posts or connected on social media. Even if I haven't commented back, I see them and appreciate the interest. You guys have been supportive throughout the journey of this character (even during my pregnancy!).
I had many of the same questions you all had… How much did Alexis get in Parker’s head? Would Parker have ever written that letter if she hadn’t run into Alexis? Did she really go back to her wife or is she trying to protect Kristina- or both? As an actor, it’s important for me to understand the writer’s intention and work with the director to convey the message to the audience. I also get attached to many of the characters I play and want to protect them. For the taping of this last air show, I wanted to make sure I understood what the writers wanted. At one point, Parker says, “this is a complicated situation.” That was the crux of the scene, in my opinion. Most people have been in relationships that are multilayered and can relate to that. I’ve said before in interviews that I believe Parker loves this girl… she loves her enough to let her go and find her own way. What are your thoughts? Of course, I’m just the actress that gets to make the words come alive. I have no control over future storylines. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!
ps- guess who I chatted about during my recent visit with Dr. Oz?
Updated answer: Maurice Bernard! He loves that man!
