Right in time for Valentine’s Day and the release of “Fifty Shades Darker,” Marcia Gay Harden stopped by to chat about her family, new film and TV series — not to mention her and Rach’s shared love of Rob Lowe.
When it comes to “Fifty Shades” fame, the Oscar winner told Rachael that her life as a mom is not quite as exciting as the role she plays in “Fifty Shades Darker,” the sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Plus, she added that her family isn’t watching these risqué films, no matter how successful the series.
Aside from the movie screen, Harden can be found on the CBS show “Code Black,” the medical drama set in the nation’s busiest emergency room. In it she plays an ER medical director along with Rob Lowe, who has been one of Rachael’s favorite guests ever. “He’s charming, fabulous and sweet,” says Rach. Harden admits he’s a bit dreamy: “He’s got steel blue eyes, and he knows it.” Lowe has brought a lot more action to “Code Black,” she adds.
Watch and see how Harden describes her medical skills now that she’s spent some time playing a doctor on TV. Spoiler alert: She might be able to deliver a baby!
