Hey gang! We've been collecting all your questions for The Lying Game's Alice Greczyn (Mads), and she took the time to answer them.
Question: I was shocked when I found out The Lying Game wasn’t filmed in New York or Los Angeles like a lot of TV shows! What’s your favorite thing about filming in Texas?
Alice Greczyn: My favorite thing about filming in Texas is the people. The local crew are so kind, hard-working and down-to-earth. I also love the variety of outdoor activity the Austin area holds, from floating down the Guadalupe River in a train of linked inner tubes to off-roading in Hidden Falls.
Question: Mads is my favorite character on The Lying Game! What’s been your absolute favorite Mads moment? And I love that Mads is a ballerina like me. I read that you know how to figure skate in real life! Is that true?
Alice Greczyn: One of my favorite Mads moments is when she boldly came on to Eduardo in the dance studio. I also love that Mads is a ballerina, as it says a lot about her character to me: that she's disciplined, not afraid of pain, hard-working and artistic. And yes, it's true I trained as a figure skater when I was growing up.
Question: Are you really writing a cook book? That’s so cool! What’s your favorite thing to cook or eat?
Alice Greczyn: Yes, I am writing a cookbook. My favorite things to cook and eat are pastries, from cobblers to petit fours!
Question: Are you anything at all like Mads?
Alice Greczyn: I think the biggest thing Mads and I have in common is our quiet independence. My brother pointed out that Mads doesn't need her friends as much as they need her, which is evident in that Mads is always "being there" for Emma/Sutton or Char, as an active listener, helper and comforter. I don't think Mads lets others take a turn to be there for her because she prefers to deal with things alone and internally. To all appearances she might be going along for the ride, but make no mistake: Mads won't be passive about anything she feels strongly about, and she sticks to her guns even when she's alone in her stance (like believing her father's innocence). That takes solitary courage and independence, and those are traits I value in myself as well.
