Quoting limited to 3 levels deepinterpretation of her character's motivation and actions.
I totally understand that you are raking Ali over the coals. My point is - what would you have her do? She's being asked for "Sami's" perspective on the current story being played out. Should Ali the actress say she thinks it's stupid and terrible writing? Do ANY of the actors do that in these situations?

She's simply doing her job. She didn't write the crap but she does have to play it. Whether she agrees with the way it is being written or not - she is speaking from Sami's perspective of why she is doing what she is doing.
What would I do? I would suggest that she to put down the industrial strength glitter because its obviously effecting her brain.
"Sophie's Choice" my ass.

To Sami's knowledge what has Lucas done that should warrant her lying and saying that her little girl being dead? If Stefano is so dangerous to small children why doesn't Sami caution Nicole to take Sydney out of that house? Why does she instead tell EJ to leave Nicole? Because Sami is lying about her motivation for hiding Grace.

And yet, Alison seems to believe that Sami is justified in her lies. :flipoff:

Thanks for posting the summary Ellie!
I might not like what Alison said but I did enjoy laughing about it. It just keeps getting funnier! Sophie's Choice! *snort*
I realize I'm just wasting my time here because it's clear your hatred of the actress/character makes it impossible to comprehend what I asked you...but I'll try one more time.

Ali NEVER said she feels Sami is justified in her lie. She simply gives the interview from the point of view that she, as the actress, portrays as Sami's motivation. Right or wrong - she HAS to play what is written.

It's absolutely no different than interviewing any other actor. When do you ever hear them say they personally despise their character and can find no redeeming quality in whatever situation they are in? It's professional suicide to do so - and thus, they don't. Did you feel the same way when Ari stated that Nicole's not scheming and that she's doing the things she's done (kidnapping babies...) from a good place in her heart? They are both in ridiculous predicaments when it comes to trying to explain why their characters are doing what they do.

Are you saying actors should always give interviews from their personal opinion rather than from the character's motivation? And if that's the case - do you care more about what the ACTOR thinks - or what the CHARACTER is doing?
