Luckily, Carrie took some time out of her busy festival schedule to chat about the incomparable Arlene Fowler, who’s in for a drama-filled season thanks to the arrival of Scott Foley.
“This season, Scott Foley’s character, who came on in the finale last season, he’s back and we haven’t seen the last of him as far as Arlene is concerned, and Terry,” Carrie explains. “So, that’s gonna be something for them to have to deal with.”
Sigh, Arlene’s life would be so much easier if she could just eat people, but for now, she’s resigned to being a meager human.
“I’m one of the few [humans] left standing,” Carrie says. “I think it’s important, because it originally started as a small town where vampires are trying to fight for their rights and they’re trying to infiltrate into the town. Slowly the real people are going away and being taken over by the supernaturals. So I feel like I’m standing for the naturals.”
Carrie’s also standing for indie filmmakers! Her feature film is making waves at Sundance, where Carrie says she experiencing one of the “most amazing moments” of her career.
