He thinks she’s amazing, he loves how strong she is, he loves how quick-witted and hilarious she is. We’re going to have story lines that go over two, three, four episodes.He does learn in a few episodes that she was sort of involved in something that kind of gets Harvey into big trouble and they come to knocking heads. And so, we’re going to find out even more about the characters whereas the cases each week will directly reflect once again what the main characters are all going through.Are you a little more comfortable with the character?A: I think, like any character, the more you play him and the more you learn about him the deeper you can get into the nuts and bolts of the character.And if not his name, people should recognize his face by now—an advertising blitz before the premiere of the second season of “Suits” meant that Macht’s face was plastered everywhere, from the sides of busses to billboards to magazine covers and even patio umbrellas (spotted in NYC).
There’s a really great scene in which we talk about the history of them. When I first moved to Toronto last year, when we started this season, I spent about two weeks actually living with the guy.Q: What it’s like to work with Sarah Rafferty and what’s coming up with Donna’s relationship with Harvey? Anyway, it is very hard to act with one of your best pals. We constantly say to each other, “don’t make me laugh, don’t make me laugh, stop, stop, don’t, stop.” It’s very hard.I mean it’s kind of silly that I’m her boss and I get to tell her what to do and what not to do, all this stuff. I’m like up to letter K in the encyclopedia so I can be as smart as the guy.We go back 20 years and our daughters are best friends, so we lived in the same house. This year we’ve had a few gatherings with the whole cast.We had Easter together, we had some cast dinners, we’ve gotten all the families together. It’s a great ensemble and we happen to like each other on set and off. We’ve been to each other’s weddings—blah, blah, blah.Specter is slick, sarcastic and arrogant, yet there’s also a softer side that shows itself from time to time.
