Antonia Thomas News
COUP DE MAIN: We absolutely love ‘The Good Doctor’, it’s such an amazing show. Have you had a favourite moment of Season 2 so far?
ANTONIA THOMAS: That’s a really hard question because the scripts this year have been so good. The scripts in Season 1 were also incredible, but the storylines as they come out get better and better, and more exciting each time. This is a really boring answer, but I have to say, I don’t have a favorite moment. Every day on set is so fun, and off the top of my head, I can’t think of just one!
CDM: Claire is told at the beginning of this season that she needs to be assertive, but struggles with the fear of being labeled a ‘bitch’ for being assertive in the workplace, which is a really accurate representation of how a lot of women worry about being ‘bossy’ at work. Do you think it’s important for these kinds of real-life stories to play out on TV to help feel women feel solidarity? That they’re not alone?
ANTONIA: Absolutely. I think it’s really important. I think that’s something that the writers of ‘The Good Doctor’ generally do really, really well – in the first season they touched upon this idea of sexual harassment in the workplace, it was extremely timely when it came out, and I think it’s so important for us to be representing that issue on-screen, and likewise with this. I myself, very much identify with the storyline of needing to be more assertive, and being told that I should be more assertive in what I want. I feel like I’m constantly juggling that thing of wanting to be assertive, but then not too assertive, and what does being too assertive mean? And not wanting to tread on toes, and being worried about coming across as being too forceful, and then being labeled in a certain way because of being a woman. I think that it’s really important, especially now, for us to be having these conversations, and for people to be able to watch them, and hopefully identify.
CDM: Your character Claire is so multi-dimensional – what’s it like playing a character like her?
ANTONIA: It’s amazing. I feel extremely lucky – it was one of the main reasons that I was attracted to the role. She has so many layers to her, she’s incredibly smart and really good at her job, but she has a huge heart and is really good at relating to patients, but then in her personal life is totally closed off and doesn’t know how to relate in a personal way to people when it’s to do with herself. Being able to play these kinds of conflicting things is so exciting, and I feel so lucky and excited, to be honest, anytime a storyline comes out because for Claire it’s always complicated.
CDM: We interviewed Freddie Highmore about the show when he came to New Zealand earlier this year, and we talked a bit about the optimism that his character Shaun Murphy has, and how it’s so refreshing to see a show, and a character like that. Do you think its important for television to showcase these different stories and perspectives?
ANTONIA: Yeah, I think it’s really important. I completely agree, I feel like the optimism is one of the main reasons that people really relate to the show, because there’s so much out there right now in the big wide world that’s negative, and depressing, and dark, so to be able to watch our show – which isn’t saccharine sweet, it’s not that everything is over-positive, it deals with some really tough issues, and a lot of the time things don’t turn out okay, things go wrong, people die daily – and be able to find a positive spin on a lot of these things is really important. I think that hopefully, that’s why the viewers like the show, they want to turn the TV on and see something hopeful reflected back at them.
CDM: There are so many awful things happening in the real world, it’s nice to see something fictional which is different.
