If you haven’t heard, one of our favorite TV guilty pleasures, The Client List, is back and even soapier and steamier than season one. We caught up with Rebecca Field, who instantly won our hearts as the adorable Lacey Locklin, Riley’s feisty BFF! Talking about the fabulous Jennifer Love Hewitt, on-set beauty secrets and much more, read on to find out why we totally heart Ms. Field!
BettyConfidential: When did you know that acting was totally for you?
Rebecca Field: As cliche as it may sound, I honestly knew when I was four. I was always telling my mom that I was going to be an actor. Later on, I did plays growing up, studied it in college and moved here (Los Angeles) to pursue it right after.
BC: How did you get involved with one of our favorite guilty pleasures, The Client List?
RF: It was honestly just a random audition I went on, and then I got a call three weeks later that I was going to test for the studio and network to be on the show. It was VERY exciting!
BC: You play J.Love Hewitt’s lovable bestie on the show. How would you describe this feisty role?
RF: Lacey Locklin is smart, kind and tough! She’s the best friend you could ever want even though she’s nosy with the biggest mouth! However, when it really counts, she knows to keep her mouth closed.
BC: We wanna know! What’s it like working with the gorgeous Jennifer Love Hewitt?
RF: Working with Jennifer is like hanging out with your best friend, laughing every day! She is the most kind hearted, funny and most amazing business woman that I worked with! Every day, I am constantly learning from her and I am grateful that she’s in my life. She makes me a better person and not to mention a better actor, too.
BC: What is an average day on the set of The Client List like?
RF: Hair and makeup, rehearsal, get dressed, shoot, shoot, shoot, laugh, laugh laugh, have tons of fun and head home.
BC: What role would you love to tackle next?
RF: Playing Mae West, of course. She’s a legend!
BC: Any beauty secrets that you’ve learned on the set?
RF: Don’t wash your hair every day and moisturize! The rest of what I’ve learned would take too long to explain and would involve diagrams and powerpoint presentations…ha!
BC: What’s your advice for aspiring actors?
RF: Work hard, stay in class and always act as much as you can. Never forget to believe in yourself, if it’s the ONLY thing you can do. Have fun, it’s a bumpy and beautiful ride!
