Catherine Zeta-Jones on ‘Prodigal Son’ and Dreams of Working With Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren
Earlier this week, Fox broke the hearts of “Prodigal Son” fans by announcing that the show will not return for a third season. In this week’s penultimate episode, Dr. Vivian Capshaw (Catherine Zeta-Jones) held Martin (Michael Sheen) hostage, and her true colors began to emerge.

On this edition of Variety’s Awards Circuit podcast, Zeta-Jones discusses what drew her to the role, which was her first in TV since “Feud: Bette and Joan.” She shares what it was like to work with Sheen, and dives into her character’s obsession with butterscotch. “My character put perfume on because she knew she was meeting Martin Whitly that day,” he shares. “But he didn’t smell that, he didn’t smell the scent of a woman. He smelled butterscotch.”

Zeta-Jones also opens up about her ideal acting roles, lamenting the fact that she has not had the chance to work with many great female actresses.
