Mary-Charles Jones – Kevin Can Wait
By: Jamie Steinberg
Q) What are the recent projects that you are working on?
A) Due to my schedule I am just working on season two of “Kevin Can Wait.”
Q) How was your character Sara Gable originally described to you?
A) Sara was described to me as this tough kid who was protective of her brother. She is very athletic and a bit dead pan but has a soft spot for her family.
Q) What was it about “Kevin Can Wait” that made you want to be a part of the series?
A) What initially drew me to the series was the family aspect of the show. Very few shows now are truly shows you can sit down and watch with your entire family. With this show my entire family can watch some good clean comedy together. I also was extremely excited to see that the show has Kevin James because he is such a successful comedian.
Q) You work with great comedic actors like Kevin James and Leah Remini. What have you taken away from your experiences working with them?
A) I have taken away just how important physical comedy can be. Kevin and Leah not only can deliver a joke, but they can also get the audience to laugh with just their body movements. Working with them is like a taking a masterclass in comedy every single day.
Q) What can you tease is new this season on “Kevin Can Wait” and with the Gable family?
A) Viewers will see Kevin navigating life as a single Dad. You will also see Kevin re-enter the workforce as he teams up with Leah Remini. We will have some storylines with Sara going through the normal ups and downs of high school. Also, we see Sara learning how to navigate he life without her mom. I think Kevin as a single dad leads to some great comedy.
Q) What have been some of your most memorable behind the scenes moments from filming Kevin Can Wait?”
A) We all love to just hang out together. Taylor Spreitler recently got a drum kit in her dressing room so I love to go and hang out with her. We will sometimes grab dinner on the weekends and hang out as well. It really is like one big family.
Q) What do you think it is about the show that has made it a fast fan favorite?
A) I think the show is a fan favorite because it’s enjoyable for the entire family. Everyone finds it funny. I also think Kevin works really hard to make sure the show is extremely funny and enjoyable.
Q) You are a part of social media. Are you looking forward to the response you’ll be receiving from fans?
A) I love all the wonderful responses I have been receiving from fans on my Twitter and Instagram (@realmarycharles). Everyone has been supportive and loving the show. I can’t wait for everyone to see more of Season Two.
Q) What would you like to say to everyone who is a fan and supporter of the show?
A) Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting this show. It means the world to me to hear that you are enjoying it. I can’t wait for you to see all Season Two has instore.
