Always the Panic Spreader
Academy Award nominee Nia Vardalos won fans over for her portrayal on the motion picture film, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” which originated as a solo stage show. The actress will be appearing on an episode of NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” as a defense attorney. Vardalos gave us a tease about what to expect from the character:
“She’s super conniving, manipulative, really smart…the TOTAL opposite of me. *laughs* I love this show. It’s good writing, and there is a reason it is so successful. I don’t get offered roles like this. I normally get romantic comedies. I got to play tricks, and work with Raul Esparza. The cast made this very easy to settle into this role because it all comes from the helm, which is Mariska Hargitay. Then, I found it EXTREMELY difficult to take on this role because while I am obstinate, I am not a fierce or mean person in nature. This person was pretty tough to play, and I loved it. I got to play her as a disheveled, unkempt character, which was in the script. The writer based it on a friend of his who is much more concerned for her work than her appearance. I can completely relate to that because why should we be concerned with our appearance? Who cares? It’s about what we do.”
Vardalos has published her own novel, which can be purchased at Amazon.com, entitled, “Instant Mom,” where she talks about how she was able to adopt her daughter:
“In ‘Instant Mom,’ this book is the first time where I am telling the truth on how we met our daughter, how it was a ten year struggle to get matched with her, how she was almost 3 years old when we met and we had 14 hours notice and she walked in our door. I’m also writing a screenplay for Paramount, as well. When the book got too serious and personal, I would put it aside and go to the place I felt most comfortable. I would work on the screenplay, or go visit family and friends. I would just try to breathe and go on. Ultimately, I decided to keep it all in the book. I am an instant mom, but I would find out that everybody feels that way. All parents say, ‘What happened? How did this happen to me?’ There are people who either didn’t necessarily adopt, who are parents, or wanting to be parents, buying the book because the back of the book is 30 pages on how to adopt for all over the world.”
Make sure to watch Nia Vardalos on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” this Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 9/8c on NBC.
