Prison Break‘s Sarah Wayne Callies, 29, who is expecting her first child with husband Josh Winterhalt this summer, talked to FemaleFirst about her pregnancy, how it affects the show and her thoughts on motherhood. Here are some excerpts from the interview:
There have been rumours that the producers plan to incorporate your pregnancy into the show. Is that true? No, it would not be possible. The show moves too slowly. The first two series have only been eight weeks in terms of the real time of the story line so if Sarah is pregnant it’s not Michael’s baby and that’s a wrench that I don’t think they need to throw into things.
How are you finding pregnancy? I’m enjoying it now but at the beginning it was very hard, especially while I was working and before I told anyone and I was really sick. There were a few days where I’d sort of think one foot in front of the other and just get through it. Passing that initial trimester has been an adventure and change but it’s been an awful lot of fun too.
Are you looking forward to motherhood? Yes I am, but I think I’m appropriately terrified of it as well. I’m fully prepared to fall flat on my face but I think it’s going to be a continuing adventure and change and one that I’m certainly excited about.
