The Dr. Maggie Lin of ‘Saving Hope’
The Canadian supernatural medical drama television series titled ‘Saving Hope’ started in 2012andd revolves around the lives of doctors, nurses, and staff of Hope Zion Hospital. Julia Taylor Ross plays the character of Dr. Maggie Lin in this series. It was not certain whether the supernatural twist would help the series but it was shocking to learn that this ‘spirit world’ did indeed serve as the main reason for people to tune in for the show. When asked about her reaction to this supernatural addition to the series, Julia Taylor Ross had this to say:
“I was so surprised and honored. I was totally taken by surprise. I had said to the writers, ‘So what’s coming up?’ And they were like, ‘Ooooh, stuff is really coming up!’ But that’s not where my brain went at all”.
Julia Taylor Ross also feels that shooting for a ghost scene is quite different from that for a normal scene. She was happy to have the support of director and actor Greg Smith during this shoot. She said:
“I would say that the big difference between playing the two characters is that [as a ghost] you can’t communicate with anyone–except with Michael’s character which was fantastic”.
Julia Taylor Ross feels that the presence of a ghost has added humor and emotional depth to the scenes. She found it as fun and challenging to strike a balance between the regular Maggie and the ghost Maggie.
