Juno Ruddell Interview
Q: Have you been hearing from a lot of fellow working moms out there? What’s the response been like to the show so far?
Juno Ruddell: People seem to be really digging the show, the tone, the characters and the story lines. When I read the script I felt like, ‘Yes! Finally, someone speaking my language!’ I love that Catherine and our amazing writers have crafted these women, worlds and scenarios that feel so authentic and real. Lots of people saying, ‘Oh, yes! Anne is me!’ Or, ‘I can totally relate to Kate.’ Each character is unique and strikes a chord with people differently.
Juno Ruddell:I have also received emails from older family members and family friends who have expressed that the show is “bringing them back” to memories and times that they have forgotten about, but also remember like it was yesterday. No matter the age, we ALL have a Workin’ Mom in us.
Q: Dealing with postpartum depression (PPD) is something many moms go through and I was very happy to see the show tackling it. Did you do any kind of research or how did you prepare knowing Frankie would be battling that this season?
Juno Ruddell: I experienced my own PPD with the birth of my second child. So I could totally relate and empathize with what Frankie was going through. It’s a tricky beast PPD. It kind of snuck up on me. I had a tough third trimester, crazy fast birth, a baby that was the worst sleeper, and then I wanted to go back to work so desperately for fear of being “forgotten” as an actor and known only as a “mom” that I took on a show much, much too early.
Juno Ruddell:I have deep, deep respect and empathy for women struggling with PPD. It’s an incredibly isolating, shameful experience. Or at least it can be, it was with me, until I got help. I would want them all to know that they are not alone, as cheesy as that sounds, and that it does end, and you are not a bad mother at all for feeling what you do. I totally GET. IT.
Q: Will Frankie’s struggles with postpartum continue? How will she attempt to get help?
Juno Ruddell: Without giving anything away, when one is struggling with PPD it cannot be immediately apparent that that is in fact what it is. Sometimes it can take some time to really identify it. I think Frankie is aware that something is not right, and it may be PPD, but it’s a cloudy time. When you have a new baby and everything seems amazing or awful. Or both. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Q: We’ve seen some of Frankie and Giselle’s relationship and there seems to be some trouble brewing. Can you preview what lies ahead for them?
Juno Ruddell: With the birth of any child comes a massive shift in the family dynamic. I heard somewhere that a family is like a mobile and when you add another part to a mobile it immediately gets off balance, wobbles around, tips, falls, maybe breaks…but slowly, with adjustments and delicate care it will find its balance again. And each person on the mobile reacts differently. So, Frankie is adjusting just as much as Giselle is adjusting – both of them trying their best to embrace this new, very unknown dynamic.
Q: The Workin’ Moms cast seems like a really fun group. What was it like to work with Catherine, Dani and Jessalyn?
Juno Ruddell: Awful. The. Worst. No, no…It was the best! Very funny, very talented, very smart, but most of all, very authentic caring women who I admire deeply. All fighting the good fight in their personal and professional lives. Hearts out, wounds out, fears out, risk takers. My kind of people. You know that quote by Emile Zola? “If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” That’s them.
Q: Of the four of you, which actress is most like their character? Or maybe least like their character?
Juno Ruddell: It’s scary how much we are all like our characters. Catherine [Reitman] made a joke the other day ‘that we’re all so similar to our characters it’s like we’re all method.’ So, yes, she was comparing us to Daniel Day-Lewis. Not gonna lie. Kind of the best. There is for sure a part of me that is Frankie as with any character I do. It’s a wonderful part of the job accessing these different parts of yourself for a role.
Q: Outside of Frankie’s story, is there anything else we should be keeping an eye out that’s still to come on this season?
Juno Ruddell: A plane crash. Car chase and a snake eating contest. Frankie wins! Sorry. I’m annoying myself with these jokes. There is LOTS to come. Lots of incredible moments to be unturned. Stay tuned! ‘Cause it gets good!
Q: I know you’re a writer in addition to being an actress. Do you have any other projects coming up we should be aware of?
Juno Ruddell: My writing partners and I have a couple of things in the works right now. A few different ideas that we are developing for TV and Film. And my husband (part of our writing team) and I finished a two-hander stage play called Stationary that we wrote and performed at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton.
A 40-something couple meets at a community gym and strikes up an unlikely friendship. We set it on two treadmills and did the entire show either running or walking. I loved that. So, we are shopping it around now, to tour.
