“I sang in the choir. I went to college to be a teacher – she’s a school teacher,” Toni told Access Hollywood Live’s Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday of the similarities between herself and her character. “[She is everything] I would’ve been had my moment not happened at that gas station that one day.”
According to AccessHollywood, there is some on screen smooching, but Toni said it was an unusual experience:
“Kissing is odd, and it’s not as comfortable as you think,” she said. “You have to block it a few times and it’s choreographed — like he comes in and I come in… and the camera zooms up.”
And while Toni’s Nina and David Julian Hirsh (who plays Jacob Fisher, an Orthodox Jewish Cantor) find romance in “Twist of Faith,” Toni considers herself is single:
“I’m not really dating,” she said. “I need to get back on that horse again.
“I’m not very comfortable dating,” she added. “I was married for a while so I have to get comfortable dating [and having] someone in my space. I really don’t like the dating process.”
The show premieres on Saturday, February 9th at 8/7c on Lifetime.
