Malin Akerman talks to Breakfast about her new show on TV2- Trophy Wife

Hollywood actress Malin Akerman sits down with Breakfast's Hannah Ockleford, to talk about her new show, TV2's brand-new comedy- Trophy Wife. So how does she really feel about her new role?

"When I got the script and it said 'Trophy Wife', I was not into the idea of playing a trophy wife. But then reading the script... you can see that it's a little bit tongue-and-cheek, the title."

Akerman "Loved her character, and just wanted her to be as quirky and grounded as possible," as opposed to the cliché that 'trophy wives' have become.

On being thrown into parenthood, Akerman said of her character Kate, "She doesn't know how to be a parent because she's still kind of a kid herself... It'll be fun and endearing watching her struggle with [being a step-mother]."

Trophy Wife airs on TV2 on Mondays at 9pm. It is also available Ondemand.
