There’s More Than One Fish In ‘Shark’ Cage

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The CBS series Shark revolves around series star James Woods, but there’s more than one fish in the sea – and that’s how Woods wants it.

Cast member Sarah Carter, who plays attorney Madeline Poe, says Woods is adamant about all the actors getting strong roles.

As she puts it, “He’s driving the ship, but he wants our characters to take precedence. He loves playing with us and figures the stronger our characters, the better the show.”

To that end, Carter says the actors are allowed to add their own little twists to their characters.

For instance, Carter has Poe speak with gritted teeth because she “feels she wasn’t listened to much as a child. She’s restrained with huge dreams.”

But while Carter is enjoying her character for Shark, she jokes she’s not hooked on the show’s legal jargon.

In her words, “Expository dialogue never feels natural. That’s why the relationships between the characters are so important – and why we have such a great blooper reel!”
