Olivia! First, as a bisexual female I have to say that your role in the OC was a huge eye opener for me and helped me come to terms with that part of my life. So thank you! Second, you and Jason Sudeikis’ relationship is one that I admire and I strive to have a similar dynamic with my boyfriend.

Now that being said, how does it feel to be a woman who has portrayed an LGBT character and helped others come to terms with their sexuality?

Nothing gives me more pride than hearing gay and bisexual men and women tell me they were helped in some way by my roles on television. That’s a true honor. It is the responsibility of media to accurately reflect society.

House

9:30pm – Saturday, July 7 on TV 3

After eight seasons and 177 episodes, this week sees House come to an emotional end with the episode titled, “Everybody Dies”, screening on Saturday, July 7 th at 9:30pm on 3. This week’s unmissable series conclusion sees House (Hugh Laurie) treating an ailing drug addict, which leads the moody medic to sift through his life, speculate on his future and explore his personal demons.

But how does one of the edgiest, most antagonistic characters in series television history say goodbye? According to Laurie – in pretty much the same fashion he said hello.

“It would almost be one of House’s many mantras that people don’t change, generally speaking,” Laurie explains. “It’s certainly true in television drama. They can’t change, actually. If they do, you wind up with a different show from the one you started with, and that gets economically and logistically difficult.”

“I’ve always felt that one of the distinctions between film and television is that in film, by and large, the main characters change, and the world doesn’t,” Laurie continues.

“In television, the main characters stay the same, and the world changes, and I think it’s important that House remains uncompromised.

“There is a defiance about him that’s a kind of strength, and even though it might be belligerent at times, I find it inspiring. He will not suddenly give into the sentimental, even at the end of the show. I find that uplifting, in a twisted and dark way.” Make sure not to miss this when House concludes its eight year run on Saturday, July 7 th at 9:30pm on 3.
