Lie to Me Interview: Kelli Williams on Gillian Foster

by at . Comments

As Gillian Foster on Lie to Me, Kelli Williams often hears the same question:

When will your character hook up with Tom Roth's Cal Lightman?!?

In a new interview with TV Guide, though Williams says she's one of the few that isn't anxious for this development to take place.

"We can care for each other and be supportive and have those more tender moments and not need to become a couple," Williams said of Gillian and Cal. "Sometimes it's more fun to keep that flirtation there. Personally, I'm not ready to consummate anything."


While it might not be in the romantic sense, Williams told the publication that Gillian will come to Cal's rescue in the near future.

"Lightman is going to get into a lot of scrapes. He gets his butt kicked for reading people. It's fun to see that the truth can truly hurt."

Overall, the actress says there's definitely a difference in her character, now that Shawn Ryan has taken over showrunning duties.

"Foster was in a much heavier place at the end of last year with her marriage falling apart. This season there's a little bit more levity in the office. And since I'm no longer with my husband, there are a lot of places they can take Foster."
