ETonline: Your character, Hannah, is clearly at odds with Annalise. Can you tell us a little more about that dynamic?
Marcia Gay Harden: The behavior of the two ladies is remarkably different. Hannah is this open person who would rather being a warm and cozy person even though you don’t really get to see her have that opportunity in this world. But that is more where she would be comfortable. She’s a psychiatrist. She likes to think out in the open.
Annalise is very, very different. She’s very masked, covered, brusque, and blunt. She’s not charming. Annalise lacks a kind of a charm but she is a sensual general. But she doesn’t charm or grace. She just says it like it is. I think that Hannah operates very differently and would find that bluntness and directness offensive. You know, we had to make it up.
