CelebSecrets4U was able to catch up withKatie LeClercfrom the series to chat all aboutSwitched At Birth‘s summer finale. Take a read below…

 

Can viewers expect some sort of retaliation or consequences for the girls in the season finale?

Katie LeClerc: “Oh my gosh. You know, the thing about Chip Coto is that he is scary. I think hes not afraid to retaliate. He definitely is aware that Daphnes a minor, and I think that complicates things a little bit for him, potentially. But really its Coto against Kennish, and now that theres two Kennishes, I think Cotos barriers have gone up even more than they were before.”

 

What is it like for the cast to film a season finale episode?

Katie LeClerc:Its sort of bittersweet. We get along so, so incredibly well. Also, by the end of the season, were all a little bit fried and a little bit ready for some hiatus and family time. Just to get a little bit of a break. But its weird, because theyre our family, too.

I think going into it, everybodys very excited. The first day of the last episode, everybodys like, yes, its the last episode, finally. Then when its finally the last day of the last episode, its sad. Its really sad.

Usually, whoevers in the first scenes of the day always stays until the very end of the day. This time Vanessa and I had the second scene of the day and we ended up staying until 10 p.m. that day. We just goof around and we laugh at each others scenes. Its sort of like the last day of school. Were all cracking each other up and trying to make each other laugh during their close-ups.

Of course, everyones so professional. I tried to get D.W. to laugh so hard on the last day and I could not get it. It was the saddest day of my life. Now my goal for next season is to make D.W. crack on a close-up.

 

Did the cast and crew do anything special commemorating the final episode of the season?

Katie LcClerc: “Yes, actually. The Kennish kitchen set, everybody kind of hangs out after they call cut the last time. There was some champagne that got popped and we sort of just all hung out for hours and chatted with each other. It was just very mellow, very low key. Nobodys going to break the set decorations.

It was just very sweet to say Okay, this is it for a little while and well see you in a few months. At that time, we didnt know that we had Season 3, so it was a little bit like Okay, will we see each other? And were all good, but its bittersweet. We really, really love each other.”
