More from Michaela Conlin: The Travails of Pseudo-Parenthood
Gotta love Michaela Conlin (Angela)! The beloved Bones actress continued her gab-tour yesterday with an interview for The TV Addict. Still no spoilers on the gender of Bones baby number two — executive producer Hart Hanson has kept his people very well-behaved on that one — but Conlin does have a lot to say about Baby Hodgins.
“It’s been really interesting having a real child to contend with on the set,” Conlin confides. “ It’s hard and definitely keeps you on your toes.” So far the baby’s been a dream to work with, Conlin says, but she’s not going to get ahead of herself!
On the other hand, considering the alternative — i.e., pretending to be pregnant — Conlin’s delighted with the change of pace. “I feel like I served my time there,” she says with a sigh of relief. And with Emily Deschanel (Brennan) pregnant for real and working away, Conlin’s especially glad to lose the prosthetic belly. “I wouldn’t want to be an impostor on set.”
