‘Bones’ Star Tamara Taylor Reflects on Cam’s Happy Ending, Teases Her New Netflix Series
In Tamara’s head canon, Hodgins gets to remain King of the Lab!
“Though Cam and Arastoo’s wedding was expected, the move to adopt three older children was something that took even Taylor by surprise. “They told me about it an episode before it happened,” she recalls. “It was pretty amazing. I’m really grateful they allowed me to have a happy ending. There were a few near misses, and I was like, ‘Are they going to let me have my prince and kids?'”
The finale also saw Cam temporarily step away from her job to adjust to her new family, and her portrayer isn’t sure if Cam would want her exact job back when she returned. (In her absence, she put Hodgins in charge of the lab.) “Given the fact she’ll have a full family, I think she’d be pretty OK being a part of the team versus their boss,” Taylor speculates. “Even though she spearheaded everything, she was a part of the team. I don’t know if she’d fight for the lab back.'”
On her new show:
“Taylor’s next gig, playing lawyer Oumou Prescott on Netflix’s Altered Carbon (based on the 2002 Richard K. Morgan novel), is a drastically different role for the actress. “I play a not-so-nice lady, which is really fun,” she says. ‘She’s the kind of character who says things that definitely make you want to cringe.’
Taylor hopes fans will tune in when Altered Carbon eventually launches. “It’s eerily beautiful,” she gushes.”
