In our Q&A series Last Call, we get down to the bottom of every last thing with some of our favorite celebs — from the last time they were starstruck to the last song they listened to. This week, Alicia Crowder takes our call.
We’re nearing the end of season one of “Tell Me Lies,” but Alicia Crowder promises there’s still some major surprises in store. The 27-year-old actor stars in the series, based on Carola Lovering’s 2018 novel of the same name, as Stephen’s (Jackson White) ex-girlfriend Diana, who finds herself stuck in the middle of his tumultuous relationship with Lucy (Grace Van Patten). Crowder was destined for Diana, but reveals to POPSUGAR that she could have taken on a much different role in the series. In fact, she auditioned for two other characters before becoming the overachieving college student. “I actually auditioned for Bree [played by Catherine Missal] and Pippa [Sonia Mena] first. And then I was sent Diana, and I was like, ‘This is it,'” she recalls. “She is so close to me in how I operate and move through life that it was really a no-brainer. And I was just so happy to be cast because it’s an amazing role with an amazing show, and everyone’s really great.”
Crowder admits she hadn’t read Lovering’s book prior to getting cast, but once she did, she “finished it in three days.” She raves, “It’s so good. I recommend it to anyone who hasn’t read it yet.”
And now with only three episodes to go, fans are on the edges of their seats waiting to see what will become of Lucy and Stephen’s relationship, and whether or not Stephen’s dark secret will finally be exposed. Without giving too much away, Crowder teases, “Get ready to be surprised. There are actually a couple really big twists coming up that I don’t think anyone’s going to expect.”
Regardless of where Diana ends up in Lucy and Stephen’s story, Crowder says she’s “so overjoyed to be a part of something that people are really enjoying and connecting to.” As of now, Hulu has not confirmed a second season, but Crowder, Van Patten, and White are all down to return. “We’re just waiting,” Van Patten previously told POPSUGAR about a possible second installment. “Season one ends in such a way where there’s so much to be filled in, and I would love to see what happens within those eight years, because as of now, it’s a mystery.”
