Interview: The Cast of Hulu’s ‘Tell Me Lies’ on the Show’s Thrills and Romance


Based on the novel of the same name by Carola Lovering, Tell Me Lies premiered on Hulu last week. The show tells the complicated love story between Lucy (Grace Van Patten) and Stephen (Jackson White), and a mystery concerning them and all of their friends. The show is full of intrigue, passion and plenty of clues to keep you guessing what actually happened.

Awards Radar had the opportunity to talk with the cast of the show, as well as executive producers Emma Roberts, Karah Preiss and Meaghan Oppenheimer. We asked leading actress Grace Van Patten why she thought the main characters were so attracted to one another, despite the obstacles that came between them.

“I think Lucy’s really drawn to all of these new feelings that Stephen is making her feel, and mistaking them for what could potentially be love. And it is such a contrast to her numbness which she was feeling before so I think she just makes that common mistake of falling for new, exciting, sexy feelings”, was what the actress had to say.

Executive producer Karah Preiss was very happy to be a part of this project. When asked about what she thought of the book when she first read, this is what she elaborated on:

“One of the other producers, Laura Lewis, she was thoughtful and thinking of Emma (Roberts) for this part, originally. I had heard of this book before, but I promptly devoured it and sent it to Emma. I thought it was an honest portrayal of a relationship, I hadn’t read anything like this”.

We also had the chance to speak with Sonia Mena (Pippa), Catherine Missal (Bree), Alicia Crowder (Diana), Branden Cook (Evan), Benjamin Wadsworth (Drew) and Spencer House (Wrigley). Tell Me Lies is now available to stream on Hulu, with new episodes premiering on Wednesdays. You can also watch our full conversation with the cast and producers below:
