Mary Mcdonnell in Major Crimes
Mary “Roslan” McDonnell (Battlestar Galactica) stars as Captain Sharon Raydor in the TV series “Major Crimes.” Major Crimes is in its 3rd season; it’s a spin-off series from the 'The Closer’ which follows Capt. Raydor of the Los Angeles Police Department.(1)
Mary McDonnell was interviewed by Life Reimagined in January of this year. This is what Mary said, “I’m not 25. I’m not even 40,” I never dreamed that at 60, I would become the star of Major Crimes on TNT, one of the biggest hit dramas on TV. “I was at a certain age where I wondered if Hollywood would ever let me work again.”
She paved the way to playing Capt. Sharon Raydor, head of the LAPD major crimes division with a surprising move: downsizing her expectations. When she got a call to do a small role on The Closer opposite Kyra Sedgwick, McDonnell didn’t pass because it wasn’t the lead – or the sexy love interest.
According to McDonnell, “I think you have to change your expectations with age.” “It wasn’t the biggest role to start, but I knew this was a refreshing role because I would work with creative and brilliant people. Meanwhile, I would be playing a female police captain and woman of power. She’s competent in her own skin, but dealing with all the dysfunctional things in her life. This is a woman who gets the job done.”
Then something incredible happened. When The Closer ended, I got the call to make Capt. Raydor the lead in her own series. “If I didn’t do that role on The Closer, I wouldn’t be here talking about this great show today.”(2)
