Dana Walsh role appreciation
Your character got waterboarded in last week’s episode. What was your reaction when you got that script?
KS: Well, when I first read it, I thought, “It’s about time they do something to this poor girl.” [Laughs] I was excited to do it because I’ve never been waterboarded, and I thought it would really be kind of fun. We tried to do it with a tube in my mouth, which just made it completely difficult, so I was like, “You guys are just gonna have to waterboard me.” They were like, “Are you sure you’re OK?” and I was like, “Oh yeah. Just waterboard me.”
Katee! Who wants to be waterboarded?
KS: It’s pretty crazy. Like, [the scene] was just basically me holding my breath. It was pretty intense. There was one time where I actually breathed in and I thought I was gonna die. I mean, it hurt so much, because your lungs just take in tons of water immediately. For some reason with that towel [over the face] being soaking wet, your lungs suck in water. It’s crazy.
I’ve heard that even if you think you can handle the physical torture of waterboarding, the level of panic it induces in your brain is the thing that really gets you.
KS: That’s the main thing, and not to mention that since the towel is full of water immediately, you can’t breathe through it. As soon as you breathe in, you take in water like you’re underwater.
And they did multiple takes of that?
KS: Oh, multiple. Yes. All day. [Laughs]
You sound kind of giddy about it!
KS: I really like that stuff! I’m a bit insane when it comes to doing my own stunts and getting down and dirty. It’s fun, you know? It’s things I wouldn’t normally do in my real life, so when I go to work and get to beat people up and shoot guns and get waterboarded, those are things I find completely interesting."
