premieres October 10, don’t be dissuaded from watching by all of the men you see in the previews.The women of the show are very much part of the story, including rescue squad EMT Leslie Shay, played by Lauren German.
If this type of flirtation seems too subtle, might I remind you of the guy from last week who asked “hey baby, wanna get lucky? If the man asks the woman out, it’s understood that he’s paying for the date. Instead, they have dinner parties on Friday or Saturday night.
In fact Leslie is roommates and best friends with one of the big guys on campus, Serveride, played by Taylor Kinney.“We haven’t even started shooting our second episode yet so we’re still kind of developing the basics,” German said. I start off single on the dating scene.”German, who refers to her character largely by her last name in true firehouse form, said she’s always wanted to play two kinds of roles: “A hooker and someone in the medical field — so we’ve knocked one out now.” Her dad is a vascular surgeon, so German said she grew up in hospitals and around medical terminology and equipment. “She was going into cardiac arrest and like almost flatlined and we watch her save this woman’s life. It’s just very helpful to have them there and just sort of see how focused and almost not dramatic in a lot of ways. There’s no time for them to do anything else but just focus on saving a person’s life and just sort of see that was very helpful for me. I fly right after this back to Chicago and any day off I am going to go in the ambulance with them.”Besides the respect she has for the occupation, German said she appreciates her character’s sense of humor.“She’s kind of like goofy, down to earth, one of the guys so to speak,” she said. As great as my other jobs have been on television, I’ve never really —Ii’ve sort of been the heavy or the serious.
I like that Michael and Derek and Dick Wolf are letting my real, immature, lame personality come through into my character.”Before joining and producers wanted her to stay on until “politics were involved” and female fans of the show didn’t like her character.
When two people at a dinner party become interested in each other, they might take a walk and discuss politics or the existential virtues of Camembert cheese.
Later, they may arrange to meet for drinks at a bar, or stroll through a museum where they will say the word oeuvre over and over again until they are asked to leave. Flirting is just as serious in Turkey as it is in Germany, but the method is more direct: If a girl doesn’t know he’s interested, he’s got no shot at her.
“To each his own,” German said with a shrug, because then she got this gig and she couldn’t be happier.
She said she’s played a few other lesbian characters before but this one doesn’t fall into “cliches of homosexuality.”“That’s one thing I was really impressed by in the script,” she said. And yeah, I think she’s beyond being out of the closet. It just is, and I like that.”As for if Shay’s sexuality factors into how German plays her, the actress said it didn’t cross her mind.“I mean love is love and I personally would approach it no differently,” German said.
To provide the sort of passion they desire, boys must also watch soap operas, or at least have an alternate personality with his own private practice. On the date, he will gaze passionately into her eyes for ten straight minutes while reciting lines from Rubí. A coat will magically appear on her shoulders when she gets cold.
She will groan beneath the weight of flowers and stuffed animals. No one in the history of soap operas has ever split a bill.
Most importantly, eye contact should be brief and fleeting.
Guys will envision a long lost pet to enhance the forlorn and harrowing sense of melancholy.
In the pilot you find out Leslie is a lesbian after her squadmates convince the new guy to hit on her and she asks him, “Are you gay?
