The Fox series Almost Human, from creator J.H. Wyman (Fringe) and executive producer J.J. Abrams, is a high-tech, high-stakes action drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely and intriguing partnership is forged when part-machine cop, John Kennex (Karl Urban), is forced to pair with the part-human android, Dorian (Michael Ealy), to investigate what is clearly a deep cover-up. The show also stars Lili Taylor, Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook and Michael Irby.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Lili Taylor, who plays police captain Sandra Maldonado, talked about how she came to be playing a character originally written as a man, why she wanted to play a cop, what it’s been like to work with this cast, adjusting to never really knowing where your character is going next, how she’d love for her character to get out in the field more, and what she thinks about this representation of the future. She also talked about her desire to find a balance between film, television and theater, and why she thinks The Conjuring became so successful. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
