‘CSI’ star Marg Helgenberger talks ‘Intelligence’ and playing her ‘M’ style character with Hillary Clinton in mind

The new CBS thriller Intelligence pits Lost star Josh Holloway and CSI alum Marg Helgenberger and the actress spoke with Watch! Magazine about the show and the role.

“Right! Besides Judi Dench’s M, I keep Hillary Clinton in mind all of the time while playing the role. She’s one of my idols, so in practically every scene I go ‘How would Hillary deal with this situation?’”

Lillian is in charge and Helgenberger discusses the world she works in.

“She’s not a bitch; she just got a lot on her plate and the buck stops with her. She’s always been surrounded by men in position of power and that’s never easy – there’s still a fair amount of sexism that exists – so she has to be tougher and stronger than the guys.”

The Watch interview covers her character, Catherine, from CSI and how she impacted younger girls. Helgenberger also talks music, playing a few songs and the magic of CSI.
