ABC’s new medical drama “Black Box” looks deep into the complex mind of Catherine Black. The brilliant neurologist, played by Kelly Reilly, has a deep secret she’s hiding from her peers: She’s bipolar.
A Zap2it-exclusive promo for “Black Box” shows some of the ways Catherine’s manic states hurt her life and her career. Reilly discusses the intricate layers of her character, and the way she approaches bringing Catherine to life.
“I treat her as an addict,” Reilly explains. “You’re going to destroy relationships, you’re going to hurt people, you’re going to destroy yourself and you will not have a happy life, and yet you will keep doing it.”
“Black Box” premieres on April 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
