The Actress Discusses How Audrey Has Changed In 4 Years
Kim Raver has been with the TV show 24 since Season 4 as the character Audrey Raines, but even the actress found the latest scripts to be surprising.
Raver again apprises her role as Audrey Boudreau in season 9 of 24:Live Another day. She comes back from a traumatic coma she was in during the mini-series, and It is revealed she is now married to Chief of Staff Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan). When Jack is captured in the season pilot, Mark keeps this a secret from Audrey and her father (now the President), because he believes this would be too traumatic for them.
“She’s kind of finding her voice. Especially with that twist, that Jack is back and ‘how could you not tell me?’… So… I really find that Audrey is kind of coming back as well.”
24:Live Another Day follows the same formula as the previous 8 seasons of the hit tv series -- except it has been broken down into a 12-episode format. The shows will follow certain hours of the 24 hour period instead of picking them all up as the original 24 did.
Currently the new show is still in filming for upcoming episodes, and Raver had a chance to read some of the script material -- and said she was shocked by how the writers continue to develop story lines that have a gripping twist to them in each season.
"She's been through so much and at the top of the season she has a quieter voice because of the damage she's experienced," Raver teases. "But what's exciting is that she finds her voice and it's interesting to find out why and how and to see her start to evolve from there."
“I know some of the secrets, and then literally some I don’t. I literally gasped out loud. The writers are so good that they create moments where, you know, it’s still a page turner.”
In a report by US Weekly, Raver is also promoting Women's Health Week with Colgate, which kicked off May 11th. "I really believe in living a healthy lifestyle," Raver tells US. "And we're all so busy, and whether we're moms or working or working moms, sometimes we need to be reminded to take care of ourselves."
