Christine Woods is the star of NBC’s comedy “Perfect Couples” playing the character Julia. In the show Christine is married to Kyle Bornheimer’s character Dave. The show is one of the funniest shows on television and gets better and better with each episode. Movie Mikes had a chance to chat with Christine to chat about her role and working with her fantastic cast.
Mike Gencarelli: Tell us how you got involved with “Perfect Couples”?
Christine Woods: I got involved in “Perfect Couples” by auditioning. It was definitely the best script I had read all season. After a meeting with the creators, I knew it was a group of people I would love to work with. Luckily I got the part!
MG: Tell us about playing your character Julia in the show?
CW: I Love Julia. She’s the kind of person that thinks she’s got a clear idea on how the world works but really there are times when she hasn’t got a clue. She’s honest and always wants to do the right thing.
MG: How is it working with Kyle Bornheimer and having your character kind of taking the lead in the relationship?
CW: Working with Kyle has been unbelievable. He is such an incredible actor and never runs out of ways to make something funny. Whenever I think its done, he ads something to a bit that puts it on the next level of funny. Julia takes the lead in their relationship, but I’d say that as actors, Kyle is definitely the leader. He’s just so great.
MG: How is it working with the rest of this great cast?
CW: The cast is amazing. Its a very rare thing when everyone genuinely enjoys one another…and we do! We get to screw around and play all day long.
MG: Do you have a favorite episode that you have working on?
CW: I love every episode. I have to say that one of my favorites is coming up. It’s about how Dave has a tendency to poach friends. It’s awesome.
MG: How does this show compare for you than working on your other shows?
CW: This show has been a very different experience than the other shows I’ve worked on. The biggest difference for me has been the amount of time we actually get to spend together. When you work on a big show with lots of cast, you can go months without working with certain actors, which can be kind of a drag. I like the fact that “Perfect Couples” has just about every actor in almost every scene. It’s incredible to do this as a group. There is a real ability to bond that way.
MG: What can we expect from the rest of the season?
CW: The rest of the season is great. Every time I think I’ve just watched my favorite episode, the next one totally blows me away. There will be a lot of wedding party craziness and more animals. Definitely some fires. It’s gonna be awesome.
