Sarah Shahi talks about her role in Person of Interest. Listen to what she has to say about Michael Emerson at around 4:35:
Also, here’s an excerpt from an interview she gave IGN:
IGN: What was it like working with the cast? I haven’t met Jim, but I have met Michael, and he’s such an interesting guy with such a unique screen presence.
Shahi: Michael Emerson is just a prince. There’s something about him. He’s so sweet. I don’t know how to describe it. There’s something about him that’s a bit royal. My time with them, ask me this two months from now and I might be like, “Oh, he’s a dick!” [Laughs] But I don’t think that’s going to be the case. No, they’re both incredibly giving actors. This was my first episode, and obviously the new kid on the block doesn’t want to press her luck, you know what I mean? So I respected their boundaries, and they respected mine. We all worked really well with each other. When we could chat in between takes, we did. But our stuff is pretty intense, so there wasn’t really a lot of chatting this time around.
Michael Emerson hosted a Public Television series, which to my understanding was shown on Oregon Public Television. Here’s the article about it:
The Mystery of Matter: Search for the Elements is an exciting PBS series about one of the great adventures in the history of science: the long (and continuing) quest to understand what the world is made of—to identify, understand and organize the basic building blocks of matter. Three hour-long episodes introduce viewers to some of history’s most extraordinary scientists: Joseph Priestley and Antoine Lavoisier, whose discovery of oxygen—and radical interpretation of it—led to the modern science of chemistry; Humphry Davy, who made electricity a powerful new tool in the search for elements; Dmitri Mendeleev, whose Periodic Table brought order to the growing gaggle of elements; Marie Curie, whose groundbreaking research on radioactivity cracked open a window into the atom; Harry Moseley, whose discovery of atomic number redefined the Periodic Table; and Glenn Seaborg, whose discovery of plutonium opened up a whole new realm of elements, still being explored today.
The Mystery of Matter shows us not only what these scientific explorers discovered but also how, using Broadway-caliber actors to reveal the creative process through the scientists’ own words, and conveying their landmark discoveries through re-enactments shot with working replicas of their original lab equipment. Knitting these strands together into a coherent, entertaining whole is host Michael Emerson, a two-time Emmy Award-winning actor.
The series aired Monday, October 20, 27 and November 3 at 10 p.m. on OPB.
