Dollhouse - Claire Saunders

Amy Acker who portrays Dr. Claire Saunders talks about her role in Dollhouse:

What can you tell us about your character in Dollhouse?

Well I am Dr. Saunders and I take care of the dolls at the Dollhouse. I’m kind of the one who seems to be looking out for everybody and there’s a lot of maybe not so nice people at the dollhouse. I keep trying to turn things around to do what’s best for the dolls and I guess the trait that is most noticeable is that I have these huge scars across my face, like five scars scraping up my face which look pretty painful.

It must be pretty difficult on the makeup side to do that one.

It is, were still trying to get it mastered it’s been very challenging to get it to work every time, but I think it looks really cool. Yesterday I got to do them with stitches all over them so that was really neat looking.

How long do the scars usually take to get done in makeup?

Usually about 2 hours.


So it’s not as bad as the Illyria then?

No not quite. Illyria was only a pain, but this has the glue and all of that so it tends to be trickier.

Will you be a series regular or recurring?

Right now I’m a recurring character, but I’ve been in every episode, all but one, so I feel like I’m definitely around. When there at the Dollhouse you usually see me and hopefully if there’s more episodes after these first 13 then I think you’ll see a lot more of Doctor Saunders in the future.
