Lie to Me: Interview with Monica Raymund

Garret Dillahunt,Monica Raymund,Lie to MeIGN talked to Monica Raymund (Ria Torres on Lie to Me) recently and she gave away a few details about the hostage episode. (Not necessarily the main reason I’m quoting her.)

Side note: the interview is dated Sept. 25 and episode 2 is now episode 4.

Spoilers below.

IGN: Can you talk at all about some of the storylines coming up?

Episode 1 we have Erika Christensen from Traffic. She’s a guest star and gives an incredible performance as a woman with multiple personality disorder. So that’s dramatic and fun! Then we have Garret Dillahunt who comes in episode 2. He’s amazing. He’s one of my favorite actors, ever. And he takes me hostage and brings me into the company and takes everyone hostage. It provides for a very entertaining, action-packed episode. Then we go off to Mexico in another episode. I go with Lightman to Mexico, because he needs a Latina to help him… Who doesn’t?! [Laughs] And then we go to Vegas, where we will be near the poker world series tournament.

IGN: I wanted to ask you a bit more about that hostage episode, because I’d imagine Torres would be a bit cooler under pressure in that situation than most.

Raymund: She’s very cool. Obviously, with a gun to your head, you’re going to freak out a little bit. But she understands what she has to do. She understands that there’s lives at stake. So she just does what she needs to do, to make sure everybody is okay. So she just comes in and does her bit. And then a gun goes to Lightman’s head… and that’s where the story really takes off.

IGN: How was it working with Garret Dillahunt on that episode?

Raymund: It was great. I think he’s probably one of the most brilliant actors of our time. I have immense respect for him. [, via]

After Eva Banks (guest star Rosie Perez) makes a shocking discovery about her son, Cory’s (guest star Cruz Santiago) behavior at school, she takes him to the doctor, only to find out that he has been the victim of sexual abuse. Detectives Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni) come onto the scene and question the victim and his family. From the boy’s frightened reaction when his stepfather, Thomas Banks (guest star Jim True-Frost), silences the investigation, it is clear to everyone in the room who the real perpetrator is. Detective Benson and Stabler are about to arrest the suspect when Thomas agrees to give up the leader of the largest pro child-adult relationship civil rights group in exchange for amnesty.
