TV Eliza Dushku Reflects on "Dollhouse"

Eliza Dushku Reflects on "Dollhouse"
by Kelly Woo
posted Oct 25th 2010

We spoke about her satisfaction with the end of "Dollhouse" and whether she'll ever work with creator Joss Whedon again:

The end of "Dollhouse" seemed to wrapped things up nicely.
Were you satisfied with the second season and how everything turned out?

I was. I mean, we all felt like the second season was a gift. We didn't think we would go past the first season after our Friday death slot. It was definitely a surprise and a gift, and I felt like we got the chance to give a complete, full circle.

By the end of 'Epitaph Two: Return,' every character and their story was wrapped up in a really beautiful way. It's definitely special for us to be able to have closure both for our characters.

Is it difficult to always be on the verge of cancellation?

It can be, but we seized the day every chance that we had. We just took the approach of "game on, let's give it everything we have" while we have the stage, go even darker and deeper, and really challenge the people that have followed us this far.

It was such a deep and dark powerful show to be a part of and we're really proud of what we did. Regardless of people that didn't get a chance to catch it while it was on.

We had such amazing response internationally. I've been traveling a lot this year doing press and I've been in Japan, Australia ... Similar to the "Buffy" world, this show transcended Friday nights on Fox and it's made its mark ...

The people that were following it really got the chance to be a part of it and come to love these characters. Our DVDs will live on forever and we're really proud of that.

If by some miracle there had been more seasons, do you know what would've happened?

Honestly, if I had even a corner of what's inside Joss' brain, I'd be a multimillionaire. [Laughs] He is just so extraordinary and creative and the things that he comes up with -- the twists and the turns -- he's so extraordinary.

I was a part of the collaboration but ... there was Joss and there was the amazing team of writers from the "Buffy" days and Joss' brother, Jed, and Tim Minear and they all speak a different language and they're so generous with us as actors.

It would've been incredible, I can only imagine, but I guess we'll never know.

After "Dollhouse" got canceled people started talking about if Joss can be appreciated on network TV or whether he should do something for cable.

What do you think?

I would think from some of the things I've seen on cable and even looking at shows like "True Blood", it just gives you more freedom to go darker and deeper. And I think hell would have to freeze over before he would step back in Fox.

But I think that he really, despite the circumstances, created such a powerful show for network and that would be something he would have to decide if he would sign up for that kind of torture again. [Laughs]

When you think about the premise of the show -- just the profound way it showcased the depths of human nature and the darkness that is found when you go there -- it challenged people and really put things out there that you're not used to seeing.

It's such an impressive thing to me that he was able to fill space on an unbelievable show within those confines.

Any plans to work together in the future?

You know, I can absolutely say he's a lifelong friend and I have no doubt that we'll be in each other's worlds again at some point.
