'Transparent's' Judith Light says Season 3 flashbacks will be devastating

Los Angeles Times

The notion that we carry the scars of our forebears was an underlying theme in the second season of Amazon's "Transparent," and it seems the forthcoming third season will continue that exploration. At least that is what Judith Light indicated when she stopped by the Los Angeles Times studio to discuss the Emmy-winning series, in which she plays Shelly Pfefferman, the neurotic matriarch and ex-wife of Maura, her husband who came out as a transgender woman. In reflecting on the journey her character took in the second season, which saw Shelly grappling with her fears of abandonment in relation to her complicated relationship with Maura, Light said it's still only the beginning of the story. "It's going to be very interesting for people, I think, to see the third season, which we just finished filming, because you're going to go back in time and you're going to see the younger Pfeffermans," Light said.

Yetta Timothy says it was heartbreaking to watch people rallying outside Pennsylvania's capitol building earlier this month to try to pressure the governor to lift a shelter-in-place order meant to stem the spread of the deadly novel coronavirus. But the registered nursing assistant from Harrisburg, the state capital, stood there anyway, urging the protesters to go home. "I was heartbroken standing there watching and hearing all those cars honking and then holding up their signs," said Timothy, who held a poster during the protest that read: "My life is on the line. "It's not that we're going to be shut down forever, people; it's just that we need to be shut down for just a little longer until this [pandemic] passes. About 2,000 people joined the rally to reopen Pennsylvania on April 20, local media reported.
