Jenna Dewan-Tatum: Doing a couple of the scenes, realizing that I’m saying these certain lines, it added so much more depth to what I was saying, given that now I have this little soul … this life that I’m taking care of. We’re dealing with so many family issues [on the show], loss and finding out truths and just all this stuff; having done that before having my daughter, it probably would have come out a little bit differently.
I think that that’s something that I was really looking forward to about becoming a mom. In life and in your art, art is life and in your work kind of deepens everything a little bit — and especially on this show, because this is all about the family dynamics between a mother and her daughters. And here I am with a daughter.
Zap2it: Is there any chance that your husband, Channing Tatum, will appear on the series?
Jenna Dewan-Tatum: Maybe he’ll come on and do it. Maybe he’ll be a bad guy. That would be fun.
Zap2it: If you were a witch, which special power would you most like to have in your own life?
Jenna Dewan-Tatum: I’d like to snap my fingers and be asleep, because I’m a little sleep-deprived at the moment. But on the show, [my character] Freya is very ruled by her emotions, so my power sort of comes from my emotions and how I’m feeling and how the situation is making me feel.
