Cate can have a hard time understanding, especially because she’s such a perfectionist. And how is she adjusting to marriage, given that it’s something she wasn’t sure she wanted? In the time when [she and Ryan] should have been getting to know each other and figuring out what the expectations were for their marriage in the engagement phase, they were dealing with Lux and Baze coming into their lives.
So it’s just really trying to learn how to mentor a child who is yours that maybe you don’t relate to completely. With the shake-up at the radio station, what’s next for her? The one thing that she could have counted on in her life before Lux was her career, and now she doesn’t have that. So now they’re sort of doing it in reverse, and they’re maybe starting to realize that the other person is not who they thought they were marrying.
When she was only 4, she starting acting in national commercials.

It’s a lot funnier and a lot wittier—it’s got a lot more of the Juno side, so it’s not so heavy on the Gilmore Girls. Critics have praised the show from the beginning, and it does have a loyal fanbase.I spoke to Appleby about Cate’s major life changes, Life Unexpected’s growth, and yes—how Liz and Max are faring after all these years. What do you think has drawn people to Life Unexpected? It’s really a show about people caring about each other, and learning how to grow up and do the right thing.They’re raising a child together, and they’re learning to actually be there for each other and be friends, which I think is the basis for any good relationship. And I think we all know that we’re a part of something that we’re really proud of, and that doesn’t happen all the time. We get together every week to watch the show, and we have parties.So in a way, we’re seeing the beginning stage of who Cate and Baze are as a couple, maybe six or seven years from now, and how they get there. We’re up in Vancouver away from all of our friends and family, so it’s really in all of our best interests to have a real bond and feel like a family so we’re not alone in this foreign country. You’re just going to go sit in your hotel room.” What is cool about it is there are absolutely no other distractions, because we don’t have lives in Vancouver other than our jobs. Wouldn’t it be great to do Liz and Max, 10 years later? The other day, I mentioned to Liz Tigelaar, “Bring Jason Behr on the show! I think it would probably freak Kris [Polaha] out, because maybe I have more chemistry with Jason than I do with him.For those of us who want to see Cate and Baze together, how long do we have to wait to see that happen? [laughs] But what I do really like about what’s happening this season is that their relationship is really evolving.
