Video: 'Hemlock Grove' star Madeline Brewer explains why she's scarred for life

After Madeline Brewer finished her stint as Tricia on the first season of Orange is the New Black, she auditioned for eight months before landing the new, non-supernatural role of graphic artist Miranda Cates on Hemlock Grove‘s second season (now available on Netflix). “Weird things happen to her that involve Peter and Roman,” Brewer says. “I wanted her to become a vampire-werewolf hybrid, because I think that would then immediately bump me up to the coolest character on the show, but that didn’t happen. I’ll just have to stick with being a normal person.”

The character has nine tattoos, which took two and a half hours to apply. “As an artist, Miranda had designed them herself. One of her tattoos is of particular interest to anyone who plans on watching the entire season. There’s a bit of foreshadowing going on there,” she teases. (Miranda also has a nose ring, which is Brewer’s in real life.) READ FULL STORY

Video: 'Under the Dome' star Rachelle Lefevre kindly stalked Bradley Whitford

Under the Dome returns June 30 for a second season, and Julia (Rachelle Lefevre) will have her hands full with a potential love triangle—enter mystery man Sam (new series regular Eddie Cahill)—and a dome that viewers will get to know even better. “As ever-present as the dome was last season, it’s almost more like a character this season,” she says. “It’s more of a sentient being—people feel like they’re connected to it, and it starts to control the atmosphere and the environment.”

We got to know Lefevre better when she stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Find out which film she regrets seeing with her father, what movie she snuck into with her mother, which book she lied about having read in high school, and how she got her hands on a signed Bradley Whitford photo.

On Suits, Gina Torres plays Jessica Pearson, a strong, unflappable boss. But in real life, Torres is a bit more laid-back. As she put it during our Pop Culture Personality Test, “Two martinis in, and I’m all about Yentl!”

That was of course in reference to her go-to karaoke song. But Yentl isn’t Torres’ only love. While we had her in the hot seat, she also discussed Fred Astaire, and her fear of puppets.
