Today I posted an interview I had with Hilarie Burton, the new series regular on White Collar, about her involvement in the show and now I have the chance to show you my interview with Tiffany Thiessen, Elizabeth Burke on White Collar, and remember to watch White Collar on Tuesdays 10/9 C on USA. (It´s a new time slot)
Interview with Tiffany Thiessen, Elizabeth Burke on White Collar
S&T: Great, thanks. The name actually is Guillermo Paz. I’m from Argentina.
Tiffany Thiessen: Oh, nice to be here.
S&T: Thanks. There are a lot of White Collar fans here. I wanted to ask you what’s the best thing about being in White Collar and what would you say to recommend the show to someone who isn’t already watching it?
Tiffany Thiessen: Oh, wow. My favorite thing about the show is my cast, the guys and people, the actors that I get to work with every day are really what is the pure joy for me. It’s one of the greatest casts that I’ve ever worked with, so.
And for people who aren’t watching the show, it’s one of the most entertaining TV shows on TV right now. It has a lot of suspense, it has a lot of comedy. It has a little bit of everything and it’s a really fun show and I think there’s a reason why it’s gotten such good reviews and I think that’s why the show is doing so well is it’s got a little bit of everything, which is nice.
S&T: Great. I’m also doing a little documentary piece about how to make it in the industry. I just want to ask you what’s the best advice you could give to a struggling actor who’s just starting?
Tiffany Thiessen: Oh, how to make it in the industry!
S&T: Yeah, and I would like to know what’s the best advice you could give to struggling actors who are just starting?
Tiffany Thiessen: I think determination, being resilient is probably the only thing that you can really tell somebody because it really is one of the hardest businesses to make it and to crack, but the more that you can kind of push yourself and stay into it, the better chances you have.
S&T: You have an extended resume on some of the most iconic shows of the last 20 years perhaps. Do you think maybe we’ll get to see a little wink or reference to any of the shows?
Tiffany Thiessen: You know, honestly I’d never even thought about it. I don’t know if the producers have thought about it either. That’s a good question. It wouldn’t be really a question for me, it would be a question probably for Jeff Eastin.
S&T: Okay. And who would be your dream guest star for White Collar?
Tiffany Thiessen: My biggest guest star, oh wow. We’ve had a lot of great guest stars and we have more. Like I just had mentioned that Billy Dee Williams is on the next episode and he’s such an icon. It was quite fun to actually have him on the show and work with Diahann Carroll and the two of them, actually they have such a real history together where they actually went to high school together, which was actually kind of fun to learn.
I mean he’s amazing and I had done a movie with him years ago, so it was really fun to actually work with him and see him again.
