Gina Torres on Tommy’s New Love Curiosity & Reuniting With D.B. Woodside

[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for the 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 4 premiere “The New Hotness.”]

Captain Tommy Vega (Gina Torres) has a brand new love curiosity in 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 4, and it comes with a little bit of an angelic twist.

Not solely is D.B. Woodside, who starred the angel Amenadiel on Lucifer, taking part in the brand new love curiosity, who’s rescued twice in “The New Hotness” by the 126, however Trevor’s additionally a reverend, as Tommy surprisingly learns on the finish of the episode.

So does that imply an finish to their relationship earlier than it may start? Torres gives a tease about what’s forward and talks about working with Woodside once more (after 24, Fits, and Pearson).

To begin with, everybody singing within the church was superb.

Gina Torres: Wasn’t that enjoyable? Wasn’t {that a} good little respite from all of the nervousness and chaos?

Yeah. However then there’s some extra nervousness and chaos for Tommy when she realizes that Trevor’s the brand new reverend.

Properly, there’s that.

So at that time, what does she suppose the longer term may hope for them? Something? Is she planning to simply utterly overlook a few date?

This does reveal itself because the season rolls out. At that second, I don’t suppose she actually sees how a pastor may match into her life.

And it wasn’t in any respect what she was anticipating.

No, no. Not even shut. Once we choose Tommy up this season, she’s actually simply wanting ahead to exploring what this a part of her life is gonna convey. She’s probably not interested by a dedicated relationship. I believe she needs to simply have enjoyable for now and date and get again to herself. And that’s tough once you’re relationship a pastor.

Going again to a bit earlier, what’s it about Trevor that draws Tommy sufficient to provide him her quantity and say she’s good with the date date? As a result of it looks as if the universe additionally type of saved throwing them again collectively.

I do know, we save his life twice. I do consider that she seems like destiny has lent a hand on this. And you understand, he’s wonderful. [Laughs] In order that doesn’t damage. However I additionally suppose it’s his love of his daughter and his relationship together with his daughter and her to him, which I believe provides her a clue into the type of man that he’s.

Additionally at that time, it seems like they may be on the similar level of their lives too, earlier than she is aware of that he’s a pastor. As a result of he was speaking about his spouse having left and he or she misplaced her husband.

Yeah, there’s a kinship there, for positive, that they discover themselves newly single.

I’ve to say how a lot I really like the casting of D.B. Woodside as Trevor. Speak about working with him once more.

Yeah, D.B.’s nice. I used to be so comfortable that we acquired him, that he truly agreed to do the present, that he had time to do the present as a result of he’s a busy man. We get collectively and it’s simple. It’s simply simple. He’s an exquisite actor. He’s extremely beneficiant and he’s good and he’s enjoyable and he’s humorous and we simply have a great time.

You had been speaking about the place Tommy is in her life proper now, however is it that Trevor got here into her life on the proper time? Might she be prepared for one thing with another person?

We’re nonetheless making an attempt to determine if Trevor didn’t present up on the proper time. I believe she’s open to prospects. I don’t suppose she’s put a reputation to it. She had a gorgeous marriage, so I consider that she’s wanting ahead to exploring what it’s to be Tommy Vega lady versus Tommy Vega mom, Tommy Vega paramedic, Tommy Vega spouse. What’s necessary to her? I believe a variety of girls, as their kids become older and don’t want them as a lot, in the event that they discover themselves single once more, whether or not it’s that they’re widows or newly divorced, it’s important to get again to you and what makes you content and what makes you tick throughout these instances once you’re not in service to everyone else. She’s there. She’s in that place in her life.

So are we going to see who she is when she’s off shift?

Yeah, she’s making an attempt to determine all that out, completely.

We noticed Tommy telling Grace (Sierra McClain) about Trevor — I like that second within the church — and I’m assuming it’s only a matter of time earlier than Judd (Jim Parrack) is aware of. What are we going to see from these three with regards to Trevor?

Oh, Judd, in fact he does. Poor factor. Yeah, Grace is my greatest good friend, so that you’ll see all of that. You’ll see her making an attempt to work it by out loud with Grace and making an attempt to simply get slightly perspective on every little thing that’s occurring, as a result of it’s one factor to say you’re prepared after which it’s one factor to be prepared and, and I believe that’s the place we entered the state of affairs. She’s like, OK, I believe I’m prepared. After which, oh wait, what? What’s occurring right here? It’s all rather a lot suddenly.

What else is arising for Tommy?

We’re about midway by the season. We’ve acquired plenty of rescues arising. The excellent news is that we’re attending to spend time with a variety of the opposite characters as properly. Owen’s [Rob Lowe] acquired a storyline that’s gonna bridge a couple of episodes, as does Tarlos [Ronen Rubinstein and Rafael Silva], as does Marjan [Natacha Karam]. So there’s gonna be rather a lot for audiences to chew on this season.

How a lot is Tommy going to be concerned in planning the Tarlos wedding ceremony? As a result of I really feel like everybody’s gonna have an opinion.

So far as I do know, she’s gonna present up, have some cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and cheer that we acquired them there.

Who’s leaning on Tommy?

Oh, everyone leans on Tommy.

What was your favourite scene to movie so removed from this season?

There’s an episode arising that that goes into the connection between Tommy and Trevor’s daughter, which was a variety of enjoyable to shoot.

What about your favourite scene to movie from the premiere?

I really like the movie-making magic, so I actually cherished strolling by — and it’s form of non-eventful as you’re watching it, however for myself, one of many nice issues about doing what I do is strolling onto a set and seeing how the set decorators and the designers have created this world. And so the way in which they created this carnival, we begin and it’s daytime and it’s raining, after which we take it into the nighttime and all of the lights are lit up and also you see the rides and it’s great. You’re good there.
