Angie Harmon Interview: “Jane Rizzoli Is Just a Part of My Personality Now”
Since July 12, 2010, Harmon has starred in TNT’s crime drama Rizzoli & Isles, a series based on the novels by retired physician Tess Gerritsen. The premiere was later recognized as the all time most successful cable series launch. Rizzoli & Isles follows the lives of homicide detective Jane Rizzoli (Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander), complete opposites, but best friends who solve crimes and bust criminals in Boston, Massachusetts. The fifth season summer finale entitled “Burden of Proof” airs September 2, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. (eastern) on TNT.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Angie, according to your publicist, your day is not going well because of some events that are totally out of your control. Could it be that you have an interesting airport story to tell?
Angie Harmon: There’s nothing interesting about it. I had my three girls crying on the sidewalk, and I was crying, and I get in, and my flight’s been changed. It’s not interesting, just really kind of pitiful.
