Kellie Martin’s appearance as Capt. Nicole Galassini in Army Wives season 6 adds a new dimension to the show.
Here is what she can say about the show through the interview with Zap2it:
“When they called me and I listened to the pitch about the character, I was so excited,” Martin tells Zap2it. “I’ve never played military, after 30 years of being an actress, and the thing I love so much about Nicole is that she’s so smart and so driven. At first, you really see her at her best, then you see her with her guard down … a completely softer side. It’s nice to be able to play both sides of the coin.”
Still, Martin allows that she “knew nothing about the Army. I have to tell you, the hardest thing I have to do on the show is salute. I have to make it look like I do it 500 times a day, so it’s important that it looks right. Sometimes it distracts me, and I can’t say my line and salute at the same time.
“I have two cousins who are Marines,” Martin adds, “and my husband’s uncle was a general in the Air Force. It brings a new layer to the work for me. It may sound cliched, but I feel honored to be playing this character, because I have so much admiration for what these people do. And I couldn’t do what they do. I don’t have it. I wish I did.”
