On Thursday’s (Oct. 14) “CSI” episode, legendary star of stage and screen Ann-Margret guest-starred as Margot Wilton, a legendary icon of the Las Vegas strip who is attacked by a serial killer who goes by the nickname of Sqweegel and who is essentially forensic-proof.
Here Margret talks about the “CSI” experience with “CSI” creator Anthony E. Zuiker in this behind-the-scenes interview. Margret reveals that Zuiker surprised her with the script while she was on a cruise and expresses her fear at the topic of the script.
“It was frightening. And then when I realized that I had to do it, quite interesting,” says Margret. “I had not seen a picture [of the killer] and finally when I saw him … I was just stupified.”
As to the physicality, she knew it was going to be strenuous. “I wanted to [do my own stunts]. I did a lot of it and I have the [wounds] to prove it.”
Watch the rest of the wonderful interview in the video below. “CSI” airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
