It’s another sweltering late summer day in Los Angeles, and Angela Sarafyan, our interview having just wrapped, has had enough. Her professional obligations for the afternoon apparently complete, Sarafyan strolls over to the rooftop pool at the swanky hotel at which we have gathered, and climbs in for a quick dip. In her dress.
It’s a bit nervy, sure, but actually not that thematically or behaviorally detached when one considers the occasion for our gathering: to discuss A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, a new ensemble comedy about a tight-knit group of friends who, when faced with the prospect of losing the summer getaway house that’s served as the crash-pad for years’ worth of great parties, decide to go out with a bang — literally. Shooting on location in Wilmington, North Carolina, gave Sarafyan the opportunity to re-enact many of her favorite Dawson’s Creek moments of yesteryear, but, alas, there was no Dawson or Pacey to sweep her off her feet. I had the opportunity to recently chat one-on-one with Sarafyan, about Orgy, what people might most recognize her from right now, and what people might most recognize her from in the very near future. The conversation is excerpted over at ShockYa, so click here.
