Chat with TV Guide


TV Guide Online: Tonight we are chatting with Majandra Delfino from the TV series Roswell. Hi Majandra! Thanks for coming!
Delfino: Hello everybody. Thank you for coming.

Question: You play a very interesting character on the show. Are you in any way like your character. If so, how?
Delfino: No. In the sense that I’m a little more relaxed. But, yes, in the sense that we’re big fans of sarcasm.

Question: Hey Majandra! I heard about the Roswell Party, was it fun to meet all of your fans? I’m going to go to the other one this summer, do you think you might show?
Delfino: Yes. I had a lot of fun. And yes, I’ll show.

Question: Did you think Roswell would ever have this much success?
Delfino: I actually expected more success rating wise.

Question: Which was your favorite episode of Roswell to film?
Delfino: “The Balance” where Michael almost dies. Cause it dealt with a lot of desert stuff. That was a lot of fun.

Question: Majandra, how long have you been singing for? Did you take lessons or did your voice come naturally?
Delfino: I’ve been singing seriously since I was 11. It started off natural, but I helped build my muscles with singing lessons at first.

Question: What’s your favorite TV show (other than Roswell…hehe!)
Delfino: I would say Charmed.

Question: What kind of music will be on your CD?
Delfino: Just music I write and produce. If I could group it with another artist, that would be a bad thing. I can’t really describe it. They’ll just have to wait and see.

Question: What do you do in your free time?
Delfino: I like to basically just do nothing. It’s a big problem I have. I basically just like to sit around and read and waste time. I’m really random with what I read.

Question: Have you ever had a weird encounter with a fan, Majandra?
Delfino: Not yet. Just one guy in The Tony Danza Show days. He managed to show up everywhere I was at. He didn’t act weird when I saw him. But he was always there.

Question: Do you always plan on being an actress?
Delfino: Not at all. When I was around 15 I thought it would be cool to say I was in a movie. I did that in Miami. It was a chain reaction. I’ve lately decided that I do like it.

Question: Do you have any pets?
Delfino: Yes. I have two dogs. One is a royal standard poodle. The other is Pekingese.

Question: Who do you hang out with most from the set?
Delfino: Brendan Fehr.

Question: Do the directors surprise you guys with the storylines, or do u know them all from the start?
Delfino: We’ll get a script a week before we shoot it. That’s as much as we know. Although, I sneak into the writer’s office and look at the board to see what the writers have in store for me.

Question: Has Roswell been renewed for a second season?
Delfino: Nobody knows. I have no clue.

Question: What’s coming up with Maria’s and Michael’s relationship?
Delfino: It’s a long and bumpy road ahead. We will persevere. Michael breaks Maria’s heart in a very bad way. Bastard.

Question: what has been your favorite role so far?
Delfino: I would say probably Maria. She’s the most comic one I’ve done.

Question: Majandra, can you tell us anything about the season finale of Roswell?
Delfino: I don’t even know myself. We haven’t filmed it. We’re on 17 of 21 episodes right now.

Question: Are you gonna be in any upcoming movies??
Delfino: During the hiatus, I’m hoping to work on my record. I have a movie that’s now out at Blockbuster. It’s called the Secret Life of Girls. I would definitely recommend it. It’s a sweet story about parents getting divorced in 1983. It’s nice.

Question: Are there going to be any Maria centered episodes like the one with Michael in “Independence Day”?
Delfino: I don’t know. I know as much as you do. I’m not that far ahead.

Question: Do you need a great bass player?
Delfino: I do all the instruments on my record. But thank you.

Question: Is there anything going on with you and Brendan?
Delfino: Yeah. We hang out every day. And that’s what’s going on. Sometimes, sometimes, we’ll go see a movie. If we have a day off, we’ll go eat somewhere. It’s a really exciting life. 🙂

Question: Does the whole cast get along well?
Delfino: Really well, actually. If we were all in high school, we all would have found each other and been a big clique.

Question: How has your life changed since Roswell started?
Delfino: Because the WB isn’t such a huge network, there are less people watching me, than there were when The Tony Danza Show was on NBC. So it’s not as bad as it used to be.

Question: Who is the biggest influence in your life? In acting?
Delfino: In life I would say, unfortunately, my mom. I have to admit that, as much as I don’t want to. Well acting, I would say, Jack Nicholson.

Question: Michael and Isabel don’t get together, do they? I heard a rumor that they do, and I love Michael and Maria.
Delfino: If that were to happen, it would be more of a mistake than something for the long run. But, I think the writers know how much people like Michael and Maria together.

Question: Which one of the guys do you like better?
Delfino: My favorite guy, because he is hilarious, is Nick Wechsler. He plays Kyle. In real life, he is hilarious.

Question: What’s your favorite movie?
Delfino: The Last Unicorn.

Question: How would you describe the real life personalities your castmates and yourself?
Delfino: I would say that Brendan is kind of a dork. He’s just a real homebody. He might as well be into computers and make them. He’s very nerdy in a good way. Shiri is kind of like a real high school sort of girl. She has the surfer boyfriend, real normal. Katie is proper and polite. Jason is real kooky and fun. Nick is hilarious. He’s a genius. Colin is not like his character at all. He’s like real casual and calm and not the least bit dorky. I really don’t know about me. You’ll have to ask my mom about that one. William is like the most kiddish one on set. He makes fart noises and is really out of hand.

TV Guide Online: Thanks Majandra! We had a great time, and please come back soon!
Delfino: Thank you for coming. I, hopefully, will see you soon. Best wishes. Keep watching.
