Author Billie Eilish On The Real “Bones” Characters
As a writer who writes about women’s issues, I’m always looking for new material to review. So when I stumbled across a short article by Billie Eilish, of the television show “Bones,” I was intrigued enough to read the article and call the show’s publicist.
While watching the show, I came away impressed with its refreshing comedic sensibility and the basic need to keep things light. I was pleased to see that the show’s producers worked hard to maintain a balance between the characters and their situations. And with that in mind, I wanted to learn more about the cast. So after a few minutes of conversation, I asked if I could interview Ms. Eilish herself about the characters on the show.
The show’s characters and relationships are very interesting. There are three main female characters, including two hosts (Bones and Maya) who act as the “attractors” in this case. In addition, the fourth character, Pepper, is a waitress who also helps the host’s friends – “the Busters.”
While I was intrigued by the characters, I found myself most intrigued by Eilish’s personal story and experiences that she had. She told me about her childhood in London, what it was like to grow up in a multi-cultural household, and her belief, “Racism is the race that people never seem to have enough.” I really liked her enthusiasm for Black History month, as well as the effects of growing up with a single mother, a stepfather, and a family who had relocated every year or so for work.
Here is a short bio of myself that I wrote in response to her request for a personal story: I’m a white male, and a former college professor. My wife and I were recently divorced. I grew up in an upper middle class family in Chicago, Illinois. I spent many years of my adult life as a professor of sociology and American studies, teaching the subjects of multiculturalism, feminist theory, African American studies, and Jewish studies.
However, it was the experience of working on “Bones” where I really found my true passion for writing. After working on several other shows such as “The Neighborhood,” “Ugly Betty,” and “Bad Teacher,” I found myself incredibly happy working on a show that was actually telling a story about real women’s lives. In fact, I felt more fulfilled than ever when I was chosen to co-write the show’s first episode, in which Pepper worked as a waitress in order to raise some money for her brother’s wedding.
It also gave me the opportunity to meet some of the most exciting women in Hollywood, such as Courtney Cox, Molly Eichel, and Maggie Q. It was a real honor to get the chance to tell stories about these incredibly talented and intelligent women. The whole process was just a real privilege for me, and I can’t wait to see how the show goes forward.
