You probably thought the shocking season finale was the end of the road for Agent Debra Parker, but when it comes to ‘The Following,’ you just never know!
Annie Parisse: Agent Parker Could Be Back
Anything is possible on The Following — at least, that’s what Annie told us May 9 at the New York premiere of Star Trek.So does that mean she could return in season two after being buried alive?
“I don’t know, but I wouldn’t put it beyond the realm of possibility!” Annie said. “They do flashbacks as part of the show, so why not?”
Now that’s what we wanted to hear!
Because no one is ever safe on The Following, we spent most of the first season falling in love with characters — only to quickly lose them! Even though she was a major character, Annie had no idea when would be her last day at work:
Shawn Ashmore [who plays Agent Mike Weston] and I talked about it, I think [during] the third episode. Both Shawn and I were sitting on set one evening, and we kind of just looked at each other, and were like, ‘Yeah, I guess this is one of those anybody-could-go-at-anytime kind of shows.’ I was very happy I got a great death scene.
Shawn, who was lucky enough to survive season one after a heck of a beating, was Annie’s closest friend on set.
“We spent a lot of time together, had a lot of laughs!” she told us.
Kevin Bacon Is The ‘Most Generous Guy’ Ever
Annie said she’s pretty lucky to have a great team of actors to work with — especially Kevin Bacon, with whom Annie spent a lot of time filming, as Agent Parker was one of the few women Ryan trusted.
“He’s fantastic,” Annie told us about Kevin. “Honestly. Oh my gosh, I really cannot say enough about him. He is really an actor’s actor.”
Referring to him as “the most generous guy,” Annie explained that being the main character on an hour-long drama takes a lot of work, and Kevin never falters.
“[He’s] so committed,” she said. “He was just constantly prepared, always with the energy, always a smile and a spring in his step. It was great!”
So, HollywoodLifers, do you hope that Agent Parker returns for season two of The Following?
