BWW Interview: Frances Fisher Discusses Last Night's Explosive RESURRECTION
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 20, 2014

As more and more of the mystery unfolds on ABC's hit drama RESURRECTION, the secrets and emotions continue to build up. On last night's episode, Lucille, played by the fantastic Frances Fisher, couldn't hold in her feelings anymore, letting fly some verbal bombs that will surely have a long-lasting impact on the Langston family. On Friday, I spoke with Fisher about the episode, Lucille's relationship with recently returned-from-the-Dead Mother-in-Law Margaret, and what's coming up for her character; and much like her Lucille last night, she had a lot to say!
