Anastasia Griffith wants to remain on “Trauma” for some time to come.
The Paris-born, London-raised actress is glad her Monday NBC drama series about often-airborne San Francisco paramedics is back, after what she says was a planned hiatus in and around the Winter Olympics. As for whether the show will get a second season, Griffith admits that’s anyone’s guess.
“[The Games] always were going to cause some scheduling issues,” she tells Zap2it, “so they decided to keep some episodes back. We’d already shot three of those, then as we went on, they started extending us.
“It’s been a roller coaster for everyone involved,” Griffith adds. “You put your heart and soul into something, and you want to feel that people are supporting you, appreciating what you’re doing, and sharing the vision. I think NBC has, and I think they will again as they see these episodes coming out.”
Former “Damages” co-star Griffith reports “Trauma” fans also have been supportive, with some mounting write-in campaigns to keep the show alive. Yet another big support system for Griffith: one of her six brothers, Jamie Bamber, who spent four seasons as Captain Apollo on the updated “Battlestar Galactica.”
“It’s just really nice to know that there’s someone else in the family who totally ‘gets’ the weird highs and lows that you go through in a career like this,” Griffith reflects. “He had a dream time on ‘Battlestar,’ a very special experience. I think when he finished, he really realized how lucky he had been.”
