An Interview With Isabel Hodgins
How does it feel to be involved in such an ambitious week of drama?
It feels amazing! There's a lot of work involved and it's ambitious and so huge. The scale of the stunts, the number of elements to it, it's on a level I've never seen before. It’s just so exciting to be a part of what we’re filming and I know the audience is going to love it. I love doing stunts but I do get nervous. However, as soon as we've done it, I just want to do it again and again. The thought of it is much worse than doing it.
Have you been able to do any of your own stunts?
Yes! The first few days it was just the stunt doubles and we were like 'when’s it going to be our turn?' I soon realised I should be careful what I wish for! After that, we had a lot of involvement and the stunt team were amazing at showing us what to do. The stunts in the water were definitely out of my comfort zone. There’s a difference between being in water and floating around to being thrown down rapids. Me and extreme sports don’t go quite hand-in-hand so it’s been quite the experience, but a fun one.
What can the audience expect from this week of drama?
We all know Victoria ends up in water. It’s white water so there’s a strong current and she has no control. We think she’s finally held on to a rock but she gets whisked away and falls down a waterfall. I can’t give all of our secrets away but there is a lot more to this that I can't tell you about right now but it is epic. What we do know is Meena’s capable of murder and she wants Victoria out of the way. Her last murder was over someone who could expose her secrets, this is someone to who she could lose her man to. She definitely needs to watch her back as her cards are marked! I’m so excited because a lot of what we’ve done has been green-screened so we don’t actually know what the final cuts will look like but it’s edge-of-your-seat stuff with lots of twists and turns. It’s a whirlwind of a week and I think the audience will be left open-mouthed.
