In a new interview, The Newsroom actress Alison Pill shares her thoughts on her on-screen love triangle, and the journey her character Maggie had undertaken in the first half of season 1.
There has been criticism from both fans and critics that Pill’s character is weak or underdeveloped, so it is interesting to hear the actress explain that “Maggie’s journey is one towards adulthood.”
In the first half of season 1, we have seen the introduction and growth of Maggie, while simultaneously establishing the love triangle developing between Maggie, Jim (John Gallagher, Jr.) and Don (Thomas Sadoski).
Do you like the direction they have taken Maggie’s characterization so far? Pill’s comments imply that we will be getting more of the love triangle. Are you enjoying this storyline?
