Rachelle Lefevre interview: ‘Under the Dome’ season 2, the ‘gut wrenching’ wait, Mike Vogel

CBS’s hit show Under the Dome is rolling along in their second season and star Rachelle Lefevre is riding high as Julia Shumway, one of the show’s main protagonists. Now the red-haired actress reveals in the August Watch Magazine interview that she was as anxious as fans to see what was next for Chester’s Mill in season 2.

Rachelle Lefevre discusses “Under the Dome”

“As actors we were all waiting to find out,” Lefevre says, months before returning to start filming Season 2 in North Carolina. “They don’t tell us what’s going to happen. It’s gut-wrenching because the writers really want to make it exciting, so they aren’t afraid to do away with characters, no matter how popular.”

The small New England town is the settnig of the Stephen King-inspired tale where a giant dome has suddenly encompassed the city. The citizens are trapped inside and cut off from the outside world. Julia has since fallen in love with her husband’s murderer, survived a deadly shooting and accepted that she has some role in the town’s salvation as the mysterious “Monarch.”

Shooting in North Carolina for months presents a similar challenge for the actress and the cast.

 “Living there for months at a time means you can’t not get close to your castmates!” Lefevre says with a laugh. “You really are living under a dome. It’s a long time to be away from home, but there’s something I like about being on location because it forces you to be close. Not everyone would be great friends in real life—it’s a mishmash of personalities— but we’re more like a family. Every now and then someone gets sick of someone else, but then you go out for a drink and you’re all good. There’s a lot of love. Mike Vogel, who plays Barbie, is so lovely—he’s like the guy who could be everybody’s boyfriend or husband, really loving and caring.”

By the show’s very nature a castmember may be cut loose at anytime.

“No one ever knows if they’re dying, so we get stressed out if there’s a cliffhanger,” says Lefevre. “I like that they do it. It’s good to be a little insecure.”
