PODCAST: Sara Shahi
Transcript: Sarah Shahi: When you first meet my character, she is this booze and pill popping college professor of human behavior and I get recruited by Dennis Haysbert character to go into this virtual reality company in which people are designing their alternate virtual universe which is their dreamland and they’re getting stuck in there because they’re having so much fun. They don’t want to come out and they’re kind of dying on this world while they are living these lives in the other world. So I play somebody kind of like the Leonardo Di Caprio character in Inception where I have to go into their deep subconscious minds and learn their program and learn about them and try and get them to come out. But wait there’s more that on my character also as you see in the pilot episode. My sister and my niece get killed in front of me and at the end of the first episode they kind of come back out and start haunting me. And you don’t know if this is a result of the program and if it’s messing with my mind or if this is my own or my own delusions. But throughout the rest of the series that becomes another major component of the show is my own sort of rabbit hole of crazy that I start falling into and how the hauntings are affecting me.
