Interview with Charlotte Sullivan of "Mary
Kills People" on Lifetime 5/12/17
We did this interview via email... she's a very talented
actress, so I was glad to get this opportunity!
1. How did the role on "Mary Kills People" come about for
I originally read for Mary but Tassie Cameron (Showrunner &
Executive Producer) said I wasn't quite right for the role
but that Mary had a sister who was equally as dark and
2. How long did it take to shoot the 6 episodes?
I believe it took 3 months to block shoot the entire season.
3. Was it shot up in Canada?
Yes!! It was beautiful!
4. Before shooting, did they ask you about your
opinion on suicide or do anything to prepare you for the
No, the pilot script that I read was such a dangerous read.
I knew the subject matter was quite controversial but that's
what seduced me. How would you like to die if given the
choice? I know for me if I was in a lot of pain and wasn't
able to enjoy myself on this planet anymore I would want the
option. The idea of someone having to bathe and feed me
because I couldn't do it makes my heartbreak.
5. In your first scene, you're showing Mary how to shoot
a gun. Have you shot a gun before?
Yes, I actually have my gun license.
6. When do you find out if there'll be a second season?
I haven't a bloody clue. No one ever tells me anything and
I'm usually the last to know.
7. Any funny stories to tell about filming the show?
I fell pretty hard for the make-up & hair team (Stephen
Lynch and Patricia Cuthbert). I was blown away by their
artistry, originality and nasty senses of humor. I was such
a lucky little slug to get to work and collaborate with
those beautiful souls. They made my time on set magical.
8. I don't watch "Chicago Fire" regularly, but I checked
out some of your scenes on YouTube with Anna and Kelly. You
guys have some real fans out there, judging from all of the
of musical clips.
Chicago Fire has an incredible fanbase. You can't really
walk down the streets of Chicago without someone wanting to
talk about the show.
9. I gather, from what I just read, that Anna died
in the last episode. Have you received any fan reaction to
The Fed Ex guy who came to my door and delivered a package
was livid that I died. That's a funny example that springs
10. Did you have any problem working out the
shooting schedules for the two shows?
Lucky for me I had already completed my work on Mary before
I had to head to Chicago.
11. I couldn't find you
on social media, other than an old Twitter account. What
Maybe I'm old school but I love mystery. Can you imagine
Nina Simone or Ava Gardner having a twitter account? I love
that I know very little about them but can escape with them
in their art. Mystery is deceased. If I can hold on to a
little bit of that then I can have the freedom to inhabit
12. You also work with UNICEF to help
raise money and awareness for people suffering from famine
in South Sudan, right?
I am a huge UNICEF supporter and concerned global citizen. I
have a girlfriend who works for them and I know how much
they are struggling to fundraise for the famine. If no
action is taken 5.5 million people will be food insecure by
July. In South Sudan, Unicef is working to reach the most
vulnerable children with acute malnutrition
through Rapid Response Missions. During those missions, the
World Food Program delivers food, while Unicef screens for
malnutrition, treats severely malnourished children,
provides health services and vaccinations, safe drinking
water, sanitation, registers unaccompanied children for
reunification with their families and supports basic
13. How did you get involved with that?
I went on a trip with them to Peru and saw the work that
they were doing and just wanted to do something.
14. How is the work going?
My girlfriend who works there says fundraising is painfully
15. Anything else you'd like to tell your fans?
unicef.ca to read about ways to help. Also watch Scott
Pelley's coverage of the famine crisis. I think it will
inspire you. God bless.
