After the Episode with Lex Medlin: Season 4, Episode 13
Without a doubt, the Season 4 finale was "Drop Dead Diva's" biggest cliffhanger yet. And what better person to dish on the episode that Lex Medlin (aka Owen), whose character is now in an interesting situation, to put it lightly:
Cellie asks, "Will we be seeing Owen in women's clothing now that old Jane has taken over his body?"
I doubt it Cellie. I would think it would be more about old Jane living in men clothing. BUT I love women's clothing! I wear them whenever I can ... wait ... did I just say that out loud? Crap.
"I love you Owen," Rosa says, "Are you excited about the twist in your role? Though I'm hoping it was one of Jane's dreams."
Owen loves you too Rosa. I'm very intrigued about the twist. We'll have to see which way the writers/producers go though. One of Jane's dreams? That's a possibility. It sure seemed like she had many dream sequences this season. Hmm...
Cin wants your hypothesis on Owen's "death."
Well Cin, about his death there is no hypothesis. Dude died of a heart attack. The aftermath? I'm in the same boat as you. Waiting to find out. When we shot the last scene it seemed like Jane ended up in Owen's body, but the final edit seemed to be much more open to other possibilities. I'm very, very curious myself.
Jessica asks, "How do you like the challenge of acting like a serious female lawyer?"
Ooooh Jessica. As an actor I would LOVE to play a woman in a man's body. In my real life I have a wonderful wife and two beautiful daughters. Needless to say I have an incredible respect for women. I would want to play it with out it being campy or cliche. BUT we have to see if that's the direction it's going to go or not. If it is I will talk with Brooke and Josh Berman and get as much info on old Jane as possible. Then I would work up the character in an acting class or with a coach for 2-3 months. If I'm still Owen again (the male version) I would try to develop him some more. I like that dude. Either way I just wanna stay employed #omgKidsAreExpensive
And lastly, I (selfishly) want to know: "What are your hope for Season 5? In your perfect world, what would happen to Owen?"
I can honestly say my only hopes for Season 5 at this point is we have a Season 5. I'm not looking past that at the moment. In a perfect world? Hmm... I guess Owen would have married Jane and had the house and kids they talked about and conquered the legal world. But I think Jane would always be conflicted with her love for Grayson. Messy, messy, messy. I LOVE IT!
One more message from Lex:
Lastly, a shout out to all the fans. Can't tell you how many times I've been with the cast and we talk about how great you people are. I've been a working actor for over 20 years now and I've worked on countless shows. "Diva's" fan base is special. Thanks for all the support for the show and thanks for welcoming me into the "Diva" family. Have a great off season! I hope to be answering more of your questions next summer.
