‘The Good Fight’ Star Talks Relinquishing Control and a « Tougher » Maia in Season 2

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER Much like how viewers met Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) at her lowest point in the series premiere of The Good Wife, viewers were first introduced to Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie) just as her world was falling apart.

A bright law student who had just passed the bar and received a job offer at a large Chicago firm, Maia seemed to have the world at her fingertips, that is, until it came to light that her father (Paul Guilfoyle) had orchestrated an elaborate Ponzi scheme that robbed hundreds of thousands — including her godmother and mentor Diane (Christine Baranski) — of their life savings. Not exactly the best way to enter the working world.

However, Maia followed Diane to her new firm and slowly but surely built a solid reputation as a young but smart lawyer, even as she juggled the many stresses of her family’s scandal. At the end of the first season, Maia’s world appeared to come crashing down again when she was arrested for helping cover up the Ponzi scheme on the heels of her father skipping town.

After a turbulent first season for her alter-ego, THR jumped on the phone with Leslie to discuss how she channeled her own nerves for Maia’s big breakdown, how those flashbacks in the penultimate episode informed her portrayal and the « more resilient » Maia to come in season two.

Going back to the very beginning, how did you hear first hear about the role? How was the character of Maia first described to you?

It was a relatively quick turnaround from learning about a character and hopping onto a plane to New York a week later for the next five months. On the phone to [creators and showrunners Robert and Michelle King] and also Brooke Kennedy and some other producers, they were describing the role to me — obviously being a fan of The Good Wife — and very much assured me that we are within the same universe and now it’s with different characters and their own situations. As a result, they determined that Maia was somebody who was tarnished due to her father’s behavior with the revelation of her father’s scam. As a result, she would be forced to mentally and professionally struggle to stay afloat, as well as financially.

Learning more about Maia, and knowing what brilliant writers the Kings are, they fully delivered in terms of creating a rounded character with vulnerability in all the right ways. Often when playing a woman in a law firm, there is a temptation to be incredibly strong-willed and domineering and I thought that it was rather interesting to approach this new character as rather wounded and a real representation of someone… Because in my mind, with the character, what would you humanly do if this were to happen to you? You would put up all your barriers in every single aspect of your life and I feel there’s a lot of self-preservation with Maia and I felt that was true in their writing of her. She doesn’t scare easily, but the wind is knocked out of her after the current events with her father.

Glamour US June 2017

Rose is featured in Glamour US’ June issue, taking part in a series in which four actresses bared their current emotion : Rose chose « calm ». You can check her portrait in the gallery and read her short interview below :

For the last couple of months, I’ve been filming in New York City. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle and adrenaline here, especially after some very emotional days with a big team of people. I have to take a hot shower at the end of the day just to relax and feel subdued. Some people may perceive calmness as weakness, when it absolutely is not that at all. You have to choose to be calm in this chaotic world – without getting walked all over – and that requires you to have a backbone.

The Good Fight Season 2 Will Be Longer Than Season 1

TV GUIDE – The Good Fight was such a knockout in its freshman season that it is going to go extra rounds in Season 2.

TVGuide.com has learned that the second season of the lawyer drama is getting a 13-episode order, which is a three episode increase from the first run for the drama. That’s three bonus hours of bada** lady lawyers throwing down in Chicago.

The Good Fight is a spin-off of CBS’ The Good Wife, and the first original show to premiere on CBS’ premium streaming network CBS All Access. The first season aired this spring, introducing Maia (Rose Leslie) to the intense world of Chicago litigation with Good Wife alums Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo tagging along for the ride.

The second season of The Good Fight will premiere in 2018 on CBS All Access.

Rose Leslie: All kinds of women out of their ‘comfort zone’

Rose has been very busy while filming The Good Fight as a new photoshoot taken while she was living in Brooklyn has been released today by Monrowe Magazine along with an interview. Be sure to read it below and check the gorgeous pictures taken by Krisztian Eder in the gallery :

MONROWE As Gwen Dawson—the youngest house maid at “Downton Abbey”—she secretly dreamed of escaping a life of service, and becoming a secretary (in the show’s very first season). In a memorable season six cameo, she returned to visit England’s best known stately home, as the wife of a rising politician, an eloquent feminist, and an ardent advocate for the education of women. In “Game of Thrones” she was the raven-haired wilding archer Ygritte, for whom Jon Snow broke his Night’s Watch vow of chastity—kindling an impossible passion that both characters would deny, even to themselves, until she died in his arms (toward the end of Season 4), while the wilding armies lay siege to the Wall and Castle Black, telling Snow one last time (with a broad Lancashire accent) that he “know[s] nothing.”

As for the fate and fortunes of Rose Leslie’s latest character, Maia Rindell—a recent law school graduate (from a prominent and enormously wealthy Chicago family, who’s secured a job offer at the law firm of her godmother, Diane Lockhart)—this may depend less on Leslie— or her versatile gifts as an actress, or even on the storytelling skills of Robert and Michelle King in creating an absorbing sequel to their long-running CBS hit series “The Good Wife,” and rather more on the venerable broadcast channel’s marketing bet that it can launch its new subscription streaming service “All Access” by luring the old show’s loyal audience (of 10-13 million regular viewers over seven seasons) back to the colorful political and legal world of Alicia Florrick (played by Julianna Margulies, who won three Emmys and was nominated for seven more in the role), but without Margulies’ beloved character ever actually turning up in the sequel.

MONROWE recently caught up with Rose Leslie by phone, shortly after her return home to London following some five months living and shooting the first season of “The Good Fight” in Brooklyn, New York.

Guy Lesser: So, is Julianna Margulies going to be lured into appearing in Season 2 of “The Good Fight” when you all come back to shoot next fall?
Rose Leslie: I don’t believe so. I don’t believe so. No—but, as a mere actor, that’s not something I would ever be privy to. Were you wanting to see Juliana appear?

Not necessarily. But when a character like Alicia doesn’t die, with, say—
An arrow through the heart?

There’s no closure to her storyline, and of course Alicia does periodically receive mention in “The Good Fight.”
True, true. But I loved the way they ended “The Good Wife” and left the door open— even if there isn’t any way that that she’s going to come through it. But it also reflects life, when, you know, you’re not too sure whether you are going to see an old friend again.
