On the PaleyFest red carpet on Monday (March 24) night, I chatted with most of the stars of Showtime's “Masters of Sex,” which resumed production last week.
My interview with Lizzy Caplan was nifty to begin with, as she talked about Masters' end-of-season betrayal, followed by his finale confession. But it really hits a high gear toward the end when I skipped asking about the awkwardness of filming the show's sex scenes and instead asked about awkward reactions to the sex scenes after the show started airing.
Unprompted, she teases that this season's scenes are “pretty steamy, they make Season 1 look like baby games.” Then she launched into an impression of her Israeli uncle's reaction to watching the first season. It's pretty much my favorite thing so far this week.
Stay tuned for my chats with Michael Sheen, Teddy Sears, Caitlin Fitzgerald and awesome new cast regular Annaleigh Ashford, as well as series creator Michelle Ashford.
Check out the Lizzy Caplan interview above and remember that “Masters of Sex” returns to Showtime on July 13.
