Screen Rant: Can we please get the Alyssa Milano True Crime Netflix universe? I want to see a movie every year with Grace.

Alyssa Milano: Let’s do it! I will totally do it. I’m on board. I loved filming this movie. I loved the experience. I loved the freedom that Netflix gave us and how important it was for them to be authentic, and that this was a great movie. I’m super proud of it.

It was so fun to watch, and just the mystery that was solved that I will not give away …


Alyssa Milano: It’s so hard not to give it away! I’ve been doing interviews all day, and I swear, in every single interview, I stop myself, thank God, because otherwise people would not have to tune in to the movie.

We still do. We still do.

Now I have a question that I have wanted to ask you for years. You are in a way a big part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe because Peter Quill’s ship is named Milano after Alyssa Milano, his childhood infatuation, I assume you should have permission to do so. But I’m just very curious to hear …

Alyssa Milano: I had that none idea.

What do you think about it?

Alyssa Milano: It’s pretty cool. It is. It’s pretty cool. One of the coolest things, I think, has happened in my life.

So Alyssa Milano exists in MCU as Alyssa Milano.

Alyssa Milano: [nods] [laughs]

I think that’s really cool.

Another large fan base is, of course, Nora Robert’s romance fan base. And Bold is based on one of her novels. Were you a fan before? And how was your collaboration with Nora for this film? Because she seemed very supportive of you as Grace.

Alyssa Milano: So sweet, how supportive she was and she became a little bit lax in hiring me because of how candid I am. But you know, the movie is called Brazen, so I’m perfect for that. She’s amazing. Of course, I was a fan of her work before I made the film and also of this book in particular. ‘Brazen Virtue’ is the title of the book. The film is called Brazen. And what I asked her was, “Tell me what’s not on the page about Grace that I can put my teeth into and make a character.” And she said, “Well, Grace is the type of person who would jump up on a kitchen table and drink a beer out of the bottle and get a slice of pizza.” That’s kind of what I built the whole character on, oddly enough. Because everything else was on the page. I knew all about how she functioned, how she thought creatively, how good she was at her work as a crime writer. But I lacked that nuance of what made her human, and that gave Nora me.

I love that you said that because I read the Facebook post that Nora wrote where she said something along the lines of, “I think Alyssa and I will be fine if you do not see.”

Alyssa Milano: Yes, that’s okay. However, I hope people see it. At the time, I was thinking, “Yeah, you do not have to watch the movie.” But now I’m thinking, “No, this is a really good movie. Please watch the movie.”

Definitely. Well, I think Netflix has done a really good job on the rom-com side of things, and I saw all of them. And then I saw this, and I just thought, “I would love to see the true crime universe on Netflix.”

Alyssa Milano: Definitely, and I think there’s a real market for it. Yes, I’m the audience for that. That’s what was so amazing about making this movie, it was a movie I wanted to see.
