Actress Rachael Taylor was asked if she believes there's a force of evil that exists in our world.
"Hmm, that's a good question," said Taylor, one of the stars of the spooky new series 666 Park Avenue. "I would say that I'm undecided, I think.
"Yeah, I'm not going to step into that question, actually. I'm foreseeing whatever comes out of my mouth being really not great for me."
Taylor was one of the stars of the new Charlie's Angels last season. So really, how could she not believe in evil?
We kid, we kid.
Nonetheless, with that seven-episodes-and-out fiasco behind her, Taylor is free to focus on 666 Park Avenue, which debuts Sunday, Sept. 30 on ABC and Citytv.
Taylor and Dave Annable play Jane and Henry, a wide-eyed couple from the Midwest. Arriving in New York City, Jane and Henry unexpectedly are offered the opportunity to be live-in managers at an historic apartment building known as the Drake.
Jane is an architecture addict, and the Drake is just so damn cool.
The building's mysterious owner Gavin (Terry O'Quinn) and his wife Olivia (Vanessa Williams) are keen on having Jane and Henry become part of the Drake's lifestyle. Maybe a little too keen.
Eventually, enough bizarre evidence piles up that Jane and Henry, each at their own speeds, are forced to consider the possibility that the Drake is no ordinary building, with no ordinary address.
"One of the ethics questions that I liked so much about this show in general is that everyone has their own, you know, points of seduction, I guess," said Taylor, a native of Australia who, prior to Charlie's Angels, had a memorable multi-episode arc on Grey's Anatomy as Dr. Lucy Fields.
"In the pilot, Jane and Henry are broke. I just looked for an apartment in New York City and it was really distressing. So if you're offered a chance to live in a very seductive and elegant and glamorous building, with these amazing, glamourous people, then I certainly see that as a realistic pressure point."
And besides, even when evil stares us in the face, we tend to latch onto the most reasonable explanation, rather than accept the unacceptable.
"If you have an instinct that something is a little bit creepy-deepy, you will rationally try and resist that as long as you can," Taylor said.
"Obviously you're going to tell yourself that you're just being silly. Because no one wants to really believe there's a ghost in their basement."
So what's worse, a ghost in your basement or a skeleton in your closet?
Oh geez, there we are talking about Charlie's Angels again. Sorry Rachael.
