Contrary to her character onscreen, Krysten Ritter has admitted that she never felt attached to Dawson Leery on the Creek. “I think this way, [James Van Der Beek] is my James, and not my Dawson,” she repeated to Vulture. “And he’s such a good sport.”
“I’ve watched Clueless as many times as humanly possible. Like, I would run home from school to watch it. Like, I can quote it backwards,” admitted Ritter.
Outside Apt 23, Ritter filmed Vamps with the icon of her childhood, due out later this year. “It was the coolest thing to do a movie with her and become friends with her. I always wanted one of those closets like her character had, where you can figure out your outfits? The skirts with thigh highs? And now I have her in my phone. How cool is that?”
Until then, she’s excited to play the sociopathic lead, Chloe, on her new ABC show, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23. Though a challenge, she’s excited to potentially mirror the leading likes of Dexter, House and Frank Gallagher of Shameless.
“I’ve never seen a sociopath [on TV] who’s a female, and it’s just so delicious. I’m so honored to be the first one, if I am. I just love that she has no filters, and marches to her own drummer. She drinks, she has sex, she parties and those are all really fun things to play. I love that she’s part of the great digestive system of New York City… I’m not playing the friend, I’m playing a force of nature. I could probably never find a role as a good as this.”
Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23 premieres tonight on ABC at 9:30 p.m. EST — we’ve seen it and we love it!
