After purchasing the bar and hosting an event at the end of season 6, the new season will “pick up RIGHTwhere left off,” Preston says of Arlene’s storyline as season 7 begins. Fans have seen an “evolution of Arlene going from a pretty narrow minded person who hasn’t seen a lot of horrors in the world…to become more tolerant of things that are maybe different.”

She confirms Arlene gets a new vampire friend in the form of Riley Smith as Preston offers nothing but praise for her co-stars, HBO’s approach to the show as she discusses how season 7 and earlier episodes come alive.

Carrie took home the 2012-2013 Emmy Award for her Guest appearance on The Good Wife  and recounts her return to the show and reading the scenes in season three which were “something special.”

Beyond her great roles on TV, Preston also will be co-starring in Life Itself and discusses working with Morgan Freeman and one of her idols in Diane Keaton. No spoilers here, but she shares a funny story about one of her co-stars.
