Interview: Christa Miller on Liz, Collecting Rocks, and the Wonderful Experience of ‘Shrinking’

In the popular Apple TV+ series Shrinking, which has already been renewed for a second season, Christa Miller portrays Liz, the very nosy and involved neighbor of the recently widowed Jimmy (Jason Segel), who also maintains a close relationship with his daughter Alice (Lukita Maxwell). Liz is still trying to figure out her place in the world and how to put her needs first without seeming too self-involved.

Awards Radar had the chance to speak with Miller, who has previously starred in other shows created by her husband Bill Lawrence (interviewed by Joey here), Scrubs and Cougar Town, about what she was able to relate most to about this character:

“I’m also a nerd and collect rocks. That is true. That’s plucked from my own life. I think Brett [Goldstein] came over, and during the pandemic, I had taken over the backyard with my rock equipment and cabbing machine and saw, and Brett was like, what are you doing? This is insane. And I was like, because it’s rocks. He just thought it was so silly. I share that with her.”

She also stressed the show’s worthwhile themes:

“What I like about this show is that everybody has accountability…I feel like the people that I have now in my life now, my close friends, we all have accountability. Not that there’s drama going on. It so deflates everything, and it’s interesting to watch when somebody does it. I admire the people in my life that have accountability, and also reflect and take action on decisions they want to make in their life.”

Season one of Shrinking is streaming on Apple TV+.
