Abigail Spencer Interview
How the Dedicated Timeless Fandom Changed Abigail Spencer as an Actress: “It’s Very Humbling”
POPSUGAR: So, these past two seasons have really been a mix of emotions with the series getting canceled, renewed, and canceled again. What was your reaction when you found out you were getting picked up, yet again, for the Timeless movie?
Abigail Spencer: I was pretty upset after we got canceled the second time. I was like, “I can’t take it anymore.” I think, after the first time, you’re like, “Okay, we did our best.” You know what I mean? Shows get canceled all the time. I think after the second time where it felt like the show got better, our fanbase got deeper . . . You just kind of throw your hands up. You’re like, “All right. I don’t know what’s good for the world,” and you have to move on. You have to kind of lick your wounds. I think I probably got on a plane and went somewhere. I’m like, “I can’t deal with this no more.” But it was exciting [when we got picked up for the movie] because, at the same time, this doesn’t happen where a show gets to have an elegant goodbye. And that’s what I’ve been calling it, is an elegant goodbye, which we’re super grateful for. Most times you just get yanked — especially after that season two cliffhanger finale. It’s like, “Really? That’s where we leave it?” So [I’m] super grateful [to do the Timeless movie]. It’s super fun to do a holiday movie and kind of use the show for that. We were on set, Malcolm [Barrett], Matt [Lanter], Claudia [Doumit], and I, and we were like, “Wait a second. Are we in a Christmas movie?” We’re like, “Are people going to watch this every year at Christmas?”
POPSUGAR: Probably, knowing the fanbase.
Abigail Spencer: Yeah. So that was kind of fun, too, because that’s a bucket list kind of thing. And [we] really had a ball. Coming back to it knowing that you cheated death twice, you’re just like, “All right. Let’s give it one more go.”
PS: The season two finale leaves things on quite a bit of a cliffhanger, with future Lucy and Wyatt popping up. How many timelines are there in the movie?
Abigail Spencer: There are two different historical events that we go visit, and they’re both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, which is cool because I didn’t know that these events happened at those times. And you still kind of get the lessons. You get two lessons of the week. When you think about the pilot, we went to the Hindenburg crashing, which could not have been a bigger, more explosive, more — literally the Hindenburg is huge. So it’s like a huge historical moment. It’s a huge spectacle. And then I feel like where we land, where we go, and who we interact with [in the movie], nobody is historically “relevant” in the last moment. We just meet someone who touches us on a personal level. Lucy even says in the finale, she’s like, “What’s the point of saving history if we don’t save the people in it?” That’s a big arc for Lucy to go from only wanting to protect and save presidents or historically superimportant people — it’s all about the important people and then you realize everybody’s important because everybody’s history is important. Everybody is important in their own timeline. That’s a huge arc and I think we were able to follow that really naturally throughout the two seasons.
POPSUGAR: I also think that goes with our conversation in March when you talked about how season two focused more on women and people of color. Those are the things that you don’t see as much of in the history books. So to go an even deeper level with the movie — of not just historical figures, but just regular people — to save that kind of history as well is really interesting.
Abigail Spencer: Yeah. Absolutely. And we keep with that. In each episode the kind of central communities that we go and visit are Hispanic and Korean, so we definitely keep with that flow that season two was building up quite nicely.
POPSUGAR: During season two, Lucy and Wyatt were going through a bit of a rough patch.
Abigail Spencer: I feel like they’ve always been going through a rough patch.
POPSUGAR: They have, they have. But it was more of a roller coaster in season two with all the highs and the lows. But we also saw Lucy grow closer with Flynn, and it caused fans to become divided about who they want Lucy to end up with. Do you think that there will be something for both “Lyatt” fans and “Garcy” fans in this movie?
Abigail Spencer: A hundred percent. Yeah. A hundred percent. Also, what I would say is that I think that it’s so cool that people are divided. That’s naturally good storytelling because if it was just so clear one way or the other, then there wouldn’t be any conflict. So it’s really amazing that as much as people love Lucy and Wyatt because they’re our time team, it’s kind of like — remember how we met Flynn? Flynn was a terrorist and now people are like, “I kind of want Lucy and Flynn together.” [Laughter] I think that’s pretty good storytelling and really good casting.
POPSUGAR: It’s also just the characters. They’re so multidimensional. They’re not just a hero or a villain, they can all be both.
Abigail Spencer: Yes, and that was intentional. That was part of the design. So I’m glad that that’s really been followed through and that people get hip to it as well. They’re like, “Oh, I like that.”
POPSUGAR: With the pictures that have been released for the movie, it appears Rufus is alive and well in some of these timelines, but there’s also one photo of the time team standing around a table (above) that has fans freaking out because Lucy and Flynn aren’t there. This whole time we’ve been concerned with getting Rufus back, but should we be worried about the fate of other characters in this movie?
Abigail Spencer: Yes. You should. That’s all I’ll say about that.
POPSUGAR: How emotional was your last day on set?
Abigail Spencer: Actually, my second to last day on set was the most emotional because that was the day that Malcolm wrapped. When he wrapped, I burst into tears. We also shot a scene that was, I would say, one of the most emotional ones of the entire series. So that really affected [me]. I think it started to feel real. When Malcolm wrapped, it really was like, “Oh. This might be the last time.”
POPSUGAR: Did you take anything from set with you as a memento from your time on the show?
Abigail Spencer: Oh my gosh. If I tell you, NBC and Sony might send out a sniper to kill me. [Laughter]
POPSUGAR: They’ll get Rittenhouse after you?
Abigail Spencer: Yeah. Exactly. I’m trying to think, what did I take as a memento? I have some of Lucy’s items. The big thing that I want that I haven’t gotten yet, they made three of the Katharine Hepburn dresses from “Hollywoodland.” I want one of those dresses. I’m like, give it for posterity and for my collection, it’s one of the most incredible costumes I’ll ever wear.
