After eight years, the actress reveals the sadness in saying goodbye to Nancy Botwin.
There are only a few more episodes before “Weeds” goes up in smoke for good, and Mary-Louise Parker’s considered going out with her first real toke.
With Showtime’s long-running series about a pot-dealing suburban mom nearing the end of it’s eighth and final season, Parker reveals her conflicted feelings about the finale, her son’s unique idea of a way to keep the show on the air, the love and respect she has for working in television and how she’s mulling an apropos celebration of the last episode.
Do you love the television format? And did you feel that way coming into the show?
I do, I love it. And I did [feel that way]. I’d done “West Wing.” That was the only other television that I’d done and I mostly always only liked theater because I feel like movies, if there’s any kind of a budget whatsoever there’s so much sitting and I really like to work. My blood sugar, otherwise it just drops, like six hours sitting in a camper and I’d rather work. I’m there to work and collaborate. So movies to me are not my favorite.
