Mary McDonnell Tavis Smiley

Tavis Smiley interview

9 Jan, 2014

McDonnell discusses her career and her role as Captain Raydor, first seen in The Closer and now the spin-off, Major Crimes, in this interview for PBS.

This spinoff stayed in the environment and took one character and put her into a different professional position inside of it. So we were able to move it forward in a more organic manner than I would say other spinoffs, and it was highly successful, so we’re really thrilled.
