‘Off the Cuff’ Podcast: Kathryn Prescott Reigns As Queen of Teen Turmoil

MTV’s Finding Carter is the story of a teenage girl who discovers that she was abducted from her family as a baby and raised by a mother who is not her own.

Kathryn Prescott, who plays the titular Carter, joined Off the Cuff to explain why, as a Brit now navigating her new home of Los Angeles (a city she says is “kind of like your kind aunt”), she can empathize with suddenly finding oneself a fish out of water. “I don’t think I bring any calm anywhere,” she said of her energy on set, especially now that the show’s success rests largely on her shoulders. (So far so good – Finding Carter has been renewed for a second season.)

“Skins was very gritty, and England is very different,” she said of the show that first put her on the map, in which she played a character, Emily, whose sexuality was often the point of major drama. This new role has her grappling with much more family-oriented issues as Carter tries to reacquaint herself with the biological parents and siblings she doesn’t remember while also accepting the fact that “Mom” is now a hunted criminal.

“We go and watch the episodes every Tuesday because none of us have cable” she said of her castmates who now also serve as her surrogate family, including Alex Saxon, who has become a heartthrob in his own right for his role on ABC Family’s The Fosters.

“I can’t get lost in the story really, because I know what’s happening,” she admitted. “I’m just like, ‘Why did I go up at the end of that sentence? Why didn’t I go down? What am I doing with my eyebrows?'”

She promised that the show’s fans will be raising their own eyebrows at the September 16th season finale. {hollywoodreporter.com}
