In a new interview with Starry Constellation Magazine, TV Icons Doris Roberts and Marion Ross talk about their upcoming guest-starring roles on Major Crimes, and open up about what has kept them moving forward throughout their storied careers.
“Q) Could you each start and tell a little bit about how you got invited to be a part of the show?
Doris: Well I think our age did something for that.
Marion: Doris, that’s what I was going to say. We are kind of relics you know and I think we had such a good time on this set because everyone who worked on the crew of Major Crimes had been working on The Closer. They are a very close group, but they have known us all their life. I think so, don’t you Doris?
Doris: Absolutely. In fact, a couple of them I worked with on Remington Steel a long time ago. Over 20 years ago.
Marion: It’s the first time I’ve ever worked with Doris.
Doris: Yes, it is. Isn’t that amazing?
Q) Talk to us about being on Major Crimes.
Marion: I will tell you we are going to solve this mystery Doris and I. As Doris said – she said, “Guess who else is in this, Tim Conway, Paul Dooley, Ron Glass.” And you know it was so funny because Tim Conway is – the camera is on our backs, a big master shot, so Tim is trying to remember the lines. Well of course, he’s got them all screwed up, so now he is making up stuff. Well it’s so much funnier than the other stuff, but we are all shaking. I mean surely the camera can’t see that we are just shaking.
Doris: It looks like we are crying. And G.W. Bailey, another wonderful actor who is in it, and we are all alive, which is wonderful and our brains are functioning very well, so that’s even better.
Marion: And I got to wear beautiful clothes.”
