Bones Star Tamara Taylor on “The Suit on the Set” and Cam’s Secret Past — Exclusive

With only two more episodes to go we are gearing up for the inevitable – the Bones Season 7 Finale that David Boreanaz (Agent Seeley Booth) says will make fans unhappy. We know evil genius Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) is back. We know the entire team is involved. And we know the Jeffersonians are facing some serious danger. But what? And who? So much suspense!

To distract ourselves from this impending trauma, we talked to Tamara Taylor (Cam) about the penultimate episode, Season 7 Episode 12, “The Suit on Set”, where Bones and Brennan head out to Los Angeles to consult on the movie based on Brennan’s latest book only to discover the prop cadaver is an actual murder victim. Meanwhile, Camille “Cam” Saroyan goes down a comedic path, bringing some levity to the series that promises to go out with a loud gasp this year.

On tonight’s episode we find out something embarrassing about Cam. What can you tell us about it?
(Laughs) Finally! I always joke with (creator) Hart Hanson that I should have a meth addiction, or maybe had a background in prostitution. And it’s not quite that, but it is embarrassing.

Is it “funny” embarrassing?
It’s funny embarrassing. Let’s just say Cam had to do a few interesting things to put herself through med school.

Is it so bad that she can no longer judge Finn Abernathy (Luke Kleintank) for his past discretions?
No, it’s more silly.

Will we ever see more of Finn and Michelle flirting – and of course Cam panicking?
I just sat down with Hart and Stephen (Nathan, executive producer) and we will definitely see more.

Obviously in the next two episodes we won’t have time to go home with Cam, but do you think we’ll ever find out more about her home life? Like, her boyfriend?
The way Bones is configured is that aside from Booth and Brennan at home, you kind of don’t see anyone else outside the lab except the murder locations or the diner, or The Founding Fathers. They manage to orbit around those three sets. I think more than coming home with Cam I think they’re probably going to bring more of Cam’s life into the lab. Like Sweets (John Francis Daley) and Daisy (Carla Gallo) are in the lab, Hodgins (TJ Thyne) and Angela (Michaela Conlin) are in the lab. I have a feeling more of my business is going to be brought into the lab.

Who is she dating now?
Currently, she’s oh-so-inappropriately dating the gynecologist of Michelle. Leave it to Cam…very uncomfortable. But we didn’t get to see Elon (Gould, who plays Dr Paul Linder) this season, so I don’t know what the future of that relationship is.

I’m sure her dating life is pretty funny.
I’m sure it’s silly, because he’s such a silly guy. I always hope that she gets to be a stumblebum. With Michelle she’s a stumblebum – she’s so not sure-footed as a mom. It’s not like she raised Michelle so Cam’s kind of a dink when it comes to Michelle. And Cam’s kind of a dink when it comes to dating, sometimes. As confident and controlling as she can be she’s actually kind of a goofball.

Want more details about the finale? Tamara Taylor exclusively spills what she can, so check back often for more!
