BEHIND THE SCENES

LIVING DOLL

Now that Mannequin Hope appears to be in the rearview mirror (for now?), portrayer Annika Noelle (Hope) admits that she will miss her alter alter ego. “That story was so fun!” the actress enthuses. “It was a really nice change of pace to hang up the Hope hat for a second and get to play a sinister mannequin. It was an entirely different persona. It required a different voice, different movement; it was such a fun challenge. It certainly added a new level to Hope and Thomas’s complicated relationship. It was great to get the scripts and read what was going to happen next. I have to say it was a little unnerving at first but Matthew [Atkinson, Thomas] and I just dove right in. Personally, I love how Hope can rationalize things as best she can. She is always trying to make things okay, and that is her Achilles’ heel.”
