The Dallas Decoder Interview: Linda Gray

Dallas, Linda Gray, Sue Ellen Ewing

Linda Gray

Sue Ellen WeekI interviewed Linda Gray! It was an amazing experience — Gray was fun, insightful and extremely generous with her time. I’m so excited to share our conversation as part of Dallas Decoder’s Sue Ellen Week.

I’d like to begin with something that I’ve waited my whole life to say to you, which is this: “Hello, darlin’.”

[Laughs] I love that. Yes, I’ve heard that a couple of times before.

Well, when I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be J.R., so to be able to say that to you now is a dream come true.

Oh, that’s so sweet. Thank you so very much.

OK, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, you’re about to do something you’ve never done before, which is to start production on a new season of “Dallas” without Larry Hagman. How are you feeling about that?

It’s tricky because I know he’s not on the planet, but on the set, he’s very much there. He’s kind of like this big presence, looming over us and smiling. And I think what the writers may do — and underline “may” — is have something where J.R. Ewing made some oil deal 20 years ago that will come back and have reverberations on the characters today. So I think Larry will always be there — and he doesn’t even have to get into makeup.

So you’re not starting the season with a heavy heart?

No, not at all. Everybody is light about it because Larry was light about it. He always said he wasn’t afraid to die. And I think every single person who’s honest will say, “I’d like to go doing what I love to do.” Larry certainly achieved that. He passed playing the character he was meant to play. It was a life well lived. He charmed so many people and touched so many lives. He’s missed, but we just continue his memory.

What’s next?

And what about Sue Ellen? Any idea what she’s going to be up to next year?

I always smile when I get that question. People stop me on the street and say, “Please don’t drink anymore” or please don’t do this or please don’t do that. Honestly, until about a week before we start filming, we don’t know what’s going on.

The producers don’t sit down with you and explain Sue Ellen’s arc for the season?

No. But I prefer not knowing because sometimes, you could give something away without realizing it. Like when Sue Ellen started drinking again, I didn’t know that was coming up until days before we shot it.

I’m so glad you brought that up. The scene in “J.R.s Masterpiece” where she takes her first drink in 20 years is beautifully done.

When I opened the script for that episode and I saw, “She picks up that drink,” I thought, “Oh, no!” [Laughs] So I was just as surprised as anybody. But I spoke to some people who are in the program, and they said that if anything would make her take a drink, it would be J.R.’s death. So I said, “OK. Deep breath. Here we go.”

Was that scene hard to film?

I think we shot it at 10:30 at night or something. And the drinking scene wasn’t even planned for that day — another scene was, but it was a long scene and there was dialogue. And so the director, Mike Robin, who’s one of our executive producers, gave me a choice between shooting the scene with dialogue and the drinking scene. And I said, “It’s late, the crew’s tired, I’m tired. Everyone wants to go home. Let’s just do the drinking scene.” So it was kind of spur of the moment.

And I think I’ve heard you say you did it in only two takes.

Well, I asked Mike how long we had film-wise, and he said, “You’ve got 12 minutes.” And I said, “I’m not drinking for 12 minutes!” [Laughs] It may have been two takes. It felt like one.

I’ve got to tell you: Every time I watch it, I get a little emotional. How do you feel when you see it?

Cynthia Cidre, who’s our executive producer/writer, sent me the cut of the episode. And I was out, so I watched it on my phone. And I just started crying, crying, crying. So when I got home, I played it on my computer, and I just started crying again. I still tear up every time I see it because … I don’t know, it just goes to my heart. It’s hard for me to watch it.

Getting back to Season 3: I know you have a lot of respect for the writers, but do you have your own wish list for what you’d like to see Sue Ellen do?

The interesting thing is, I never had a wish list on the original show. I remember going in to the producers that one time and telling them that all I’m doing is drinking and having affairs and drinking some more and having more affairs. And they were patronizing to me, in a nice way. They said, “Yes, darling, but you do it so well.” [Laughs] So then in Year 9, they called me and said, “OK, we’re going to take you off the bottle, but we’re going to take you down.” And I said, “How far down?” [Laughs] And they said, “You’re going down.” So we went down, and I ended up in the alley drinking with the bag lady. And I loved that. As an actor, it’s like, “Bring it on!” And this was at a time when alcoholism wasn’t being dealt with a lot on film.

Dallas, Linda Gray, Sue Ellen Ewing, TNT

Don’t do it, darlin’!

I’m so glad you mentioned that, because when I think about the people who’ve contributed to society’s understanding of alcoholism as a disease, I think about you. Given the popularity of “Dallas,” I think you played an enormous role in that.

Well, that’s very kind. I’m just doing my job.

Well, you do it so well — and I’m not being patronizing!

[Laughs] No, that’s perfect. Thank you.

So let’s talk about Sue Ellen. My readers and I spend a lot of time debating this character, who is still so fascinating. How do you see her?

I have often said I found her to be the most interesting woman on television in the ’80s because she was so complex and complicated. And she’s still very interesting, but she’s different. When they brought the show back after 20 years, I told [the producers]: She’s got be strong. She has to be a changed woman. That’s the one comment I gave them. I know Dallas women. I have a lot of friends there. They’re extraordinarily talented, smart, gracious, generous women. And I wanted Sue Ellen to reflect that. She’s a former Miss Texas. She was married to that crazy J.R. Ewing. But she’s smarter now. She knows where all the bodies are buried. So who better to step in and start wheeling and dealing than Sue Ellen?

So you’re satisfied with where the character is today?

Oh, I love it. I feel like she’s a challenge for the writers. Bobby was always the good guy, J.R. was always the guy you loved to hate, but Sue Ellen is in this sort of gray area. This is supposition on my part, but my sense is that she keeps [the writers] on their toes.

Does it make a difference having Cynthia Cidre, a woman, as “Dallas’s” head writer?

As a woman, yes. I thought the original series was very sexist and chauvinistic.

I agree.

Oh, good. The thing I love about Cynthia is that she pulled together these amazing, amazing writers. We never had a writers’ room on the original show. Now, if somebody gets stuck and they don’t know what to do with a character or a scene, she has eight or nine other people who can interject their thoughts and their ideas. It’s so creative and collaborative.

Dallas, J.R. Ewing, Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, Sue Ellen Ewing

Big love

And what about Sue Ellen and J.R.? Why do you think they loved each other?

Oh, the most fabulous question. J.R. loved women, obviously. And he was brought up to have that trophy-wife syndrome. He wanted to marry the prettiest woman in Texas. And Sue Ellen’s mother taught her to go after the money. So with these two, it wasn’t a match made anywhere but hell. [Laughs] But — but! — through the years, I think a great, great love developed between J.R. and Sue Ellen. It was a Virginia Woolf kind of a love, kind of a dysfunctional love, but you know, marriage isn’t always wonderful and seamless and positive. I always found that idea interesting, that they didn’t begin on a high note. He was a philanderer, and she drank to anesthetize herself to the pain. But deep down — and they picked it up early on the new series — there really was love there.

I’m so glad the new show played that up. It was so sweet to see how their relationship had matured.

Cynthia told me that if Larry hadn’t passed, she had planned to end the season with a scene where J.R. and Sue Ellen go into the bedroom and shut the door. And so you would have been left with the impression that they were getting back together.

Oh, that’s so heartbreaking! That would have been wonderful.

Yeah, I just got chills when she told me that. I thought, “Oh, wouldn’t that have been just lovely?” We could’ve started all over again.

Do you think Sue Ellen loved any of the other men in her life?

I don’t think so.

Not Dusty Farlow?

He may have been the closest one, followed by Jack Scalia’s character [Nicholas Pearce]. Those are the only two that I can think of. There were so many! [Laughs]

Would you like to see Sue Ellen find someone new next season?

I don’t know. I think it could be kind of fun for her to be flirtatious with somebody, but she may not be ready for a relationship. But that’s just my take. The writers may have something else in mind. I think she’s got her hands full with that boy of hers.

Dallas, John Ross Ewing, Josh Henderson, Linda Gray, Sue Ellen Ewing, TNT

Honor thy mama

He’s a chip off the old block, isn’t he?

When we all read the final scene [of Season 2] where he goes to Emma, I thought, “You rat!” And when he had [J.R.’s] watch on, I thought, “Oh, boy. We’re in deep trouble now.” Mama has to step in.

I wonder if he’ll wear the watch next season?

I’m going to take it away from him. I’m going to ground him. He’s going to have to go to his room. No television. Nothing. [Laughs]

So how are you and Sue Ellen alike and how are you different?

Oh, boy. Let’s see. I have much more humor. My life is totally different. I’m much more … how do I even say this? It’s hard to describe yourself.

Maybe you’re not alike.

You know, I’m sitting here in my office in my home and I’m looking outside. I have an organic vegetable garden. I live on a ranch, but I don’t tell that to Texans because they would laugh. It’s only three acres. But in my mind, it’s a ranch. I’m very casual. And I have a great circle of wonderful friends and family. I have two grandsons. So my life is more … I don’t want to say normal. My life is easier than Sue Ellen’s. I do love her clothes, though. We have that in common.

Dallas, Linda Gray, Sue Ellen Ewing, TNT

Substance and style

But I bet your styles are different.

Our styles are different, yes. But I love putting on her clothes. On the set, I cannot do a scene without my high heel shoes. And even though my feet are under the desk or under the table and you don’t see them on camera, those heels make my character whole. I couldn’t wear fluffy slippers because that would not be Sue Ellen. And at the end of day, like at 10 o’clock at night, the girls will say to me, “Linda, you don’t have to wear these shoes.” And I’ll say, “I cannot do that scene without those shoes. I’m sorry.” And my feet are very sorry. But that’s how it is when I play Sue Ellen. I have to layer her. You know, when you step into the makeup chair, that’s layer number one. And then you go and have the hair done. And then you slip into the outfit. There’s a process, and for me, that’s hugely important.

I think I know the answer to this question, but I’ll ask it anyway. You’re one of the stars of “Dallas.” Are you also a fan?

I am a huge fan! I have always loved it. The original show still entertains me. I still get excited and I giggle and I laugh and I think, “Oh, I remember that scene! That was such a good scene.”

Do you watch the new show?

Oh, I watch it live!

Oh, wow. You should get on Twitter and tweet with us when we’re watching.

Somebody else told me that and I said, “What? Live tweeting?” I’m a little behind, and I know my fans get kind of upset. They’re like, “Come on, tweet more.” I don’t do it unless there’s something I can tweet about.

So what else are you a fan of? What shows and movies and actors do you like?

Well, my two favorite actors are Maggie Smith and Judi Dench. I mean, to watch them is to attend an acting class. I watch “Downton Abbey.” I watch “Homeland.” I love anything with great characters, great writing, great acting. It’s like this new Woody Allen film [“Blue Jasmine”]. I applaud him as a director so much because he keeps the camera on Cate Blanchett. And I was jealous. I was like, “Oh, man. He’s letting her go.” And she’s brilliant anyway.

That’s one of the things I loved about the old “Dallas” — those long, slow-burn reaction shots.

They’d let you play out your emotions. The new show jumps around a little more. They edit quickly. So that was new for me. Shooting in HD was new for me. But then you realize: OK, all these years have gone by. Things change. You have to change with the times.

Well, I think you and Sue Ellen are both doing a pretty terrific job changing with the times.

Oh, you sweetheart! Thank you.

Comments

  1. This is a wonderful interview, and what a fun opportunity to talk with such a major television icon. She sounds like a really great person. I love her discussion of the behind the scenes stuff, like the late-night filming for JR’s Masterpiece and where they would have gone with Sue Ellen and JR if Larry hadn’t passed away. Nicely done.

  2. I too enjoy the how the sausage is made type comments.
    Linda really nails it when she points out the first half of her old Dallas tenure she was very one dimensional. There were times she annoyed me almost as much as Lucy did. (That’s saying something.) I only became a fan of the character when she bought
    Valentine Lingerie and become strong enough to go toe to toe JR. That was my Sue Ellen and she needs to continue to be that Sue Ellen. My only hope is that at somepoint Sue Ellen takes off the mamma-bear blinders and gives John Ross the grounding that Linda sees he needs.
    As for non-JR loves, my opinion was Nicholas Pearce was her one other love. I always saw Dusty as an enabler and crutch. Honestly at that point in her life Sue Ellen wasn’t capable of loving anybody including herself. But again the strong Sue Ellen who masterfully used Valentine Lingerie was able to love Nicholas as an equal. Just my 2 cents.

    • Dan, when I was a kid, I used to love Sue Ellen and Dusty, but now I recognize that he very much enabled her. I agree that Nick was much better for her — although my heart will always belong to J.R. and Sue Ellen.

      • I have a hard time with Sue Ellen and JR. That relationship on balance far more bad than good for her. So to say they were each other’s true love his hard to compute.

  3. SweetLee @Dallas_follower says:

    Oh, wow. What a fantastic surprise to wake up to your post with this interview with Linda. So exciting! I enjoyed reading it and felt that I was right there with you listening to her answers.

    Wonderful to hear some new things that I haven’t heard her say before. Like describing her surprise about finding out that Sue Ellen “picks up that glass” in the script and her take on Sue Ellen’s and JR’s love and relationship & whether Sue Ellen loved other men. That she gets emotional when seeing the Sue Ellen drinking in JR’s room scene and that she is a huge fan of both the old and new shows and watches the new show’s episodes along with us.

    And so funny to read her reaction to John Ross’ Season 2 ending scene with Emma: “You Rat!”. LOL! That whole mamma-like answer is funny. And if he’ll wear the watch next season: Loved the mention of JR’s watch as a metaphor for John Ross taking on & wearing his father’s persona in a scene that is exactly a JR characteristic scene.

    And I loved to hear about her opinion on Sue Ellen’s style & the process of becoming Sue Ellen through wardrobe & makeup & especially the high heel shoes. Fantastic!

    I love the photos you chose to post with the interview.

    A terrific interview. A dream come true for you. Great stuff!! Thank you!

  4. Jennifer Irons says:

    You did a wonderful interview with Linda. You are so lucky to have gotten to speak with her! I hope you eventually interview Patrick Duffy as well. Great job with Linda, though!

  5. What a lovely interiew, Linda Gray seems like such an awesome person and I can imagine how great it must be to talk to her! I am re-watching the early seasons of Dallas, and it really started out pretty dark, didn’t it! And as Linda says, it is pretty sexist and chauvinistic! I find myself sitting there thinking “Oh my, did he just say that”!
    Sue Ellen is my absolute favourite character, and I love the development the character has over the years. Linda plays ever side of the character to perfection.
    As said above, I’ve also always thought Nicholas Pierce was Sue Ellens other love. He made her stronger and supported her to be independant. I wonder what would have happened if she had met Dusty later in Life, when she was more sure of herself and in a better place emotionally. Oh I hope they bring Dusty back for season 3!:)
    Congratulations on the wonderful interview!

  6. Chris, I don’t know where to begin singing the praises of Linda Gray – I wish I could give her a great big hug/kiss – I hope she realises how much us Dallas fans love her.
    Whilst I’m a fan of lots of other actors/characters on the show I would have to single Linda/Sue Ellen out ( perhaps even ahead of Larry Hagman himself!)
    I think the reasons for this is firstly the character herself is so complex/flawed/beautiful – season by season, almost episode by episode, she just got that little bit stronger/more interesting with plenty of setbacks on the way but the trend was relentlessly upward; to use the jargon of script-writing, her character “grew” more than any other.
    But more importantly, the actress Linda Gray herself deserves the credit for making that character – who as written on the page, especially in the early days could have been very boring/one dimensional – so great through sheer acting ability. ( I would compare her to Larry Hagman and Ken Kercheval in that regard, making their characters so much more interesting than they would otherwise have been.)

    • Beautifully stated, Paul. Thank you!

      • By the way Chris, slightly off the subject, but as the world’s no.1 expert on Dallas could you shed any light on something that’s been nagging me for a while now – why did the picture quality of the original Dallas suddenly decline from approx season 10 onwards – I thought at first this was just a UK TV phenomena ( I’m just old enough to remember when Dallas was on originally in the 1980s ) but if the DVDs are anything to go by it seems the original broadcasts in the US also declined in picture quality.
        Is it just a coincidence, but this was about the same time as the show’s ratings declined and some of the main stars ( eg. Victoria Principal and then Linda herself ) started to leave the show.

      • I have to believe the DVD’s have just been more cheaply made for those last seasons. The are jamming more episodes per side than they did on the original releases. It’s also likely those masters weren’t preserved as well. I have a hard time believing even those last seasons looked as bad as the DVD’s when originally aired.

      • Great point, Dan. Thank you.

      • Paul, I have often wondered this myself. I’m afraid I don’t have an answer. My guess is that as the show got older and its ratings declined, its production budget was cut, which affected things like lighting and the quality of the film. (It’s a real shame for many reasons — not the least of which is how it makes hard for me to create decent screen captures.)

        If anyone knows more about why the picture quality declines as the show gets older, please chime in.

  7. Miss Texas, Sue Ellen, you & Miss Ellie truly are the two prettiest Yellow Roses of Texas!

  8. What an amazing opportunity made the very best of! You really managed to cover interesting topics in this interview – not an easy task when a star has been interviewed as often as our “Sue Ellen”: It’s great to read how Linda Gray feels when she sees herself on DALLAS, and I love her take on the relationship between Sue Ellen and J.R. – even in hindsight she is not looking at the couple through rosy-tinted glasses and has a much more realistic view than many fans… It’s also fabulous to see Linda’s humour shining through; the educational measures she suggests for bad boy John Ross are priceless!

  9. Great interview! I am such a big fan of Linda Gray. Sue Ellen has as much to do with Dallas as anyone else. She really stepped up in season 2 and I am so excited that season 3 is only a few months away. It was interesting to read how Sue Ellen is applied in “layers.”

  10. What! This was a fantastic interview, the best I’ve read on her. Excellent questions, truly. So glad you didn’t fritter away time on all the beauty questions we’ve heard a hundred times before but instead asked about her craft. What terrific insight she gives. I loved reading what she felt about the drinking scene. I think it’s got to be one of the most powerful I’ve seen her act and it has no dialogue. That is one of the things I admire most about her acting – she delivers the whole truth of the scene, body and soul. Remember her freaking out in the drunk tank in the orig series? She was scary. Breakdowns are frightening, not just sad, and she took us to the scary place. That’s authentic art and it must be as exhausting as it is satisfying. It takes not only talent to do that but courage and deep empathy. The drinking scene in JR’s room was a quiet storm. There was despair, fear, anger, sadness, defiance and ultimately surrender. She didn’t cheat us out of any of that, she shared it all and I can easily understand why watching it makes her emotional. It’s the destruction of hope that we saw there and it was heart breaking. Okay! Anyway, i will stop before my response takes up the whole internet. Oh but PS, you see how Linda didn’t think Sue Ellen really loved any of those other dudes? I said the same in chat last night and I would like that duly noted. Caught some flack for it so SNAP! Great interview, thank you both.

    • Team Sue Ellen, thanks for these great observations. I love what you wrote about her delivering “the whole truth” with each performance. That’s so very true, and beautifully stated. And yes, I absolutely noticed that you and Linda are in agreement about Sue Ellen’s feelings toward the other men in her life. Great minds think alike.

      Thanks again,
      CB

  11. Great interview! Looking forward to your thoughts on the Sue Ellen / Peter Richards plot in Season 7!

    (warning – slightly dull TV tech information follows 😉 )

    On the question about the degrading picture quality as the series goes on, my understanding this because around season 9 or 10, a lot of US TV started being edited on video tape rather than film – so the series was still made on film, but then transferred to video for editing.

    This had two unfortunate side effects – at the time, it caused the quality of the show to degrade when it was shown in the UK. because the master copy was NTSC video (the US standard) and had to be converted to PAL (the UK format) when sent to the UK – previously the film master copy was converted direct to PAL. I remember complaints about the picture quality at the time.

    Now, there’s a problem because the master copies for the later seasons are on video rather than film, so don’t look as good when transferred to DVD.

    The same problem affects a lot of US TV of that era – for instance Star Trek: The Next Generation, although in that case they’ve been able to go back to the original film elements to remaster it. I guess in the case of Dallas either the original film doesn’t exist or its not felt worthwhile to go to the effort.

    After a few years technology improved and editing was done on video disc or later digitally, so this is specifically a problem for TV from the late 80s to early 90s.

    I may have some of these details wrong so possibly more knowledgeable people can correct me!

    • Richard, thanks for this info. This is really helpful.

      I think Paramount has done a nice job remastering “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” I would love to see something similar happen with “Dallas” but as you suggest, it might not be possible (or deemed worthwhile by the studio).

      I look forward to critiquing Season 7 too. I wonder if my readers would hate me if I come out in favor of the Sue Ellen/Peter Richards romance?

      Thanks again,
      CB

  12. OH this was a wonderful interview. She is a very special lady, and I am happy for you. Chris you did a wonderful job.

  13. Linda es una gran profesional, amo su personaje, hay una escena que me gusta mucho, es de las primeras en la que son asaltados por unos tipos malos que quieren vengarse de Jr por salir con sus mujeres., hay una tormenta y estos tipos llegan al Rancho pidiendo un techo para pasar la tormenta. , lo que querían en realidad era vengarse de JR y Ray. . tomando a las mujeres del Rancho.,obligan a Sue Ellen a ponerse su traje de Miss Texas. y la obligan a cantar.ella canta y llora mientras todos la miran en la humillación que le hacen los malandrines. y Jr se consume en su miedo y cobardía.la escena es muy buena .una de las tantas que Ella tiene . mis respetos Gran señora linda Gray.

  14. Loved the insight into season 3. I hope John Ross isn’t too much of a lost cause. He is half his mother’s son. Poor Pamela.

  15. Lovely interview

  16. What an awesome interview! I have been watching Dallas since the original came on in 1978! I think Linda Gray is the greatest actress ever! And to see her again on the same show 35 hrs later is absolutely incredible! She will be 73 Sept 12 and she is as beautiful now as she was when I first seen her in 1978! I love her to death, she’s a one-of-a-kind lady!

  17. This was a really nice interview. Love that Linda also feels that if Sue Ellen loved any man (aside from JR), it was Dusty and Nicholas. And I agree with one of the posters who preferred Nicholas over Dusty because while Dusty was an enabler and a crutch, Nicholas encouraged Sue Ellen to be independent. I hope we get a lot more Sue Ellen in season 3. She needs to get Lil Slick in check and also I think she would be a major power player in the trouble that’s ahead for them bidness wise.

  18. Mark Harris says:

    GREAT interview !!! now, go after Patrick Duffy. 🙂

  19. Ronnie Papke says:

    Thank you for that wonderful interview! In the end, you mention the old shows long emotion shots and Linda answers, that she had to accept the new editing. This is one thing, I don’t like about the new DALLAS. It’s too fast in storytelling. In the old DALLAS, we had breakfast scenes, dinner scenes, long talks between characters about anything else but the main plots. I miss that. I think a scene which doesn’t end with a twist is nice from time to time…

  20. Chris, this is absolutely lovely interview. Great questions! OMG. I just love her! She always comes across so delightful. Thanks for the good interview. I have to second what others have already said….she brings loads of talent and such a nuanced performance to that role. I said it before on Twitter, but it is amazing that two times now she has taken an intended minor role and turned it into a ‘must see’ character. I really am looking forward to seeing her in Season 3. Even after all these years, her character still has a story to be told. Kudos to Linda for keeping Sue Ellen interesting…and kudos to the writers (old and new) for being willing to let the character grow and evolve.

    As far as the quality of the show towards the last years of the series….yes it sucked. I remember hating the production quality when I was watching it during the first airing. They not only started that video crap during that time….but they also started shooting outdoor scenes inside with fake outdoor lighting and with painted sets. I remember one scene that was a lunch/ breakfast scene at Southfork…..but you could definitely tell it was not the actual Southfork….instead it was a painting. I did not like it at all. When you see that production quality from the early 90’s ….it makes you appreciate what is going on now on DallasTNT.

    I know that it was mentioned way back then that the cost of doing the show was extremely high with ratings decreasing (lowering revenue) and greatly reducing ‘ on location ‘ shooting time helped with costs.

    Now that I think about it a lot of,shows during that time had that bad video quality going on……but I noticed it more because ‘Dallas’ had always looked better prior to that. The saturated colors, crispness, and contrast just wasn’t there.

  21. Can anybody tell me, WHY has miss Gray NOT won an Emmy yet… for her portrayal as Sue Ellen? I’ve watched this woman’s work and it is amazing…A very layered and complex character, true to life itself. I loved her as a child, but now I’m in awe of her. Both as Sue Ellen and Linda.
