Miriam Shor Interview
Miriam Shor on Her Big Year, Diana Trout’s Fighting Instincts, and Refusing to Go Quietly
This season, Shor expanded her skill set and directed an episode of the TV Land comedy, which concludes its fifth season tonight. Paste had the chance to talk to Shor about her career, creating Diana, the season finale of Younger, and what she would like to see for her character when the series returns for a sixth season. [Editor’s note: The following has been lightly edited for length and clarity.]
Paste: It’s been a lot of fun watching Diana with Enzo (Chris Tardio) this season. She’s falling for him in spite of herself.
Miriam Shor: She’s continually caught off guard by Enzo and her feelings for him, and I love that. I love when the writers are able to find a place of vulnerability for Diana. It’s fun to play. It’s just interesting storytelling. He really is, on paper, not the right person for her, but in person, he’s the right guy, and I think we’ve all found ourselves in situations like that on some level or another. It’s interesting to explore.
Paste: Did you have conversations with the writers about Diana having a big romance this season?
Shor: I do like to go hang out with them and pretend I’m a writer, because secretly, deep down, that’s my aspiration on some level. They did take some suggestions. I lived in Italy half my life. I was angling for an episode in Italy. I was angling to go on a field trip to shoot in Italy. Instead it was, “Let’s just throw some Italian into your storyline and we’ll take you to Staten Island instead.”
Paste: Why did you live half your life in Italy?
Shor: My dad was a professor and he had a Fulbright to teach in Venice, so we lived there when I was really little and then we moved to Detroit, like you do. But then my parents split up and my mom had just fallen in love with Italy, so she decided to move back to Torino. She and my dad had joint custody, so we would spend every other year in Italy until we graduated from high school.
Paste: Diana is so interesting because she could have easily been a one-note character who just comes in with hilariously biting one-liners. But she’s got so much more depth than that. How do you go about humanizing her?
Shor: I didn’t want to play a one-note character, as fun as that note was to play. The writers write in these chinks in her armor. That’s the fun of it—getting to make this person as human as possible. I could see right away she built up an armor and protected herself on her warrior path to the top of her career.
To me, that’s the fun of playing a character who is very different from yourself. That’s what I love doing—understanding another person’s perspective that’s really different from mine. To me it’s like an emotional puzzle, trying to figure out the humanity of a character who is very different from myself and why they think the way they do.
Paste: Talking to you now, you sound so much different than Diana. Where does her voice come from?
Shor: So many things you do to create a character really help with that. The clothes she wears, yes, they are so fun, but they also kind of speak to the kind of person she is—that she feels she needs to armor herself to go into battle. That’s not how I walk through the world. But someone who is that meticulous about it would also speak a certain way. It also kind of comes together organically. It really comes from more of a place of what her objectives are and what she’s trying to accomplish.
Paste: Do you ever find yourself talking like Diana in your real life?
Shor: Her level of confidence is much, much greater than mine. Part of her thing is that she does not suffer fools, and she doesn’t have time for someone who hasn’t worked as hard as her. I don’t think she just disparages people because she’s an asshole. She has worked so hard and she has such high standards for herself that she requires everyone reach those standards—and when they don’t, she doesn’t have time for them.
I rarely feel like that. A lot of time, the characters I’ve played in the past kind of come out in me in situations when it’s very useful. If I need someone to listen to me in a situation where they’re not listening, then Diana might come out.
Paste: This season you directed an episode, “Big Little Liza.” It was your first time directing.
Shor: A really fun part of getting to be an actor is exploring those parts of yourself that you wouldn’t otherwise explore. I play someone who knows she’s the smartest woman in the room and is comfortable being a boss. Asking to be a director is being comfortable being a boss and respecting my own intelligence and ability.
Paste: What was directing like?
Shor: It’s kind of like jumping off a high dive: “Oh, I really hope I have this skill set when I get to the bottom.” It just opened a lot to me about what abilities I had and what I could learn on the go. I also had four seasons on the show. I wanted to learn the intricacies of this particular show and really make a great episode of Younger, and I had so much at my disposal for that, so many tools. And then I had the greatest cast and crew ever. It’s really great to challenge yourself when you are in your 40s with something new. I was nervous. I really wanted to be a good director to these actors, because they are my friends and I respect them and love them and I didn’t want to let them down. We really jelled as a director and cast, and I know this show inside and out. I always have opinions, and it was fun to voice those opinions and have people listen to them.
Paste: The show has been picked up for a sixth season. Do you think you’ll direct an episode next season?
Shor: We’ve asked. Putting together a season is a big endeavor. I would love to do it again. I hope they let me. As much as I love the actors on my show, when I was directing them I was like, “Jesus Christ, these are good actors: ‘I’m an even bigger fan of yours now because I need you to do this at four in the morning after a long day. I need you to get this right.’” And they did it beyond beautifully.
