Well, first of all, the writing is brilliant, of course, and I love all the twists and turns and just when you think you’ve got it figured out what she’s going to do, of course, they’ll throw a wrench in it.
I think he has the same admiration for her that Zoey (Merritt Wever) has but it manifests itself in a more subtle way.
I think the admiration is just as strong but I don’t think anything gets past him.
Even in the dialog where he says ‘oh, we didn’t even know that you were married’ and he knew.
In my mind nothing gets past Thor because he looks at every file, he’s a whiz on the computer.
I think there’s very little left that is going to get past him.
He’s just not necessarily going to admit that he knows everything, but he does. And Thor’s kind of the go-to guy to everybody for different things. Those are kind of my favorite scenes when you see me unexpectedly next to somebody at their desk, I had that with Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) last year, helping her with Spotify, and this year helping Coop with his dating.I love there’s some scenes early in the season where you’re basically helping Coop (Peter Facinelli) online date and you’re telling him the things to do and not to do. He just always seems to pop up next to somebody on their computer.What would the manic (and often drug-induced) world of Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie” be without reliable, trustworthy, honest and jack-of-all-trades, Thor. It’s like there’s an actual human being after seven years!As played by Stephen Wallem, the character who has been on the long-running series from the start, always seems to be the go-to guy for anyone with a problem. I want to ask you kind of a general question since I’ve watched this show since the start. Because in some ways Jackie’s still an addict and she’s still going through her stuff but there’s something still so fascinating about it.However, when I talked to Wallem recently, we talked about whether we’ll be meeting Thor’s oft-mentioned new boyfriend as well as why he thinks the show has endured this long (and it’s renewed for an seventh season, too! SW: I think if we had anybody else at the center of this universe other than Edie Falco I’m not sure if people would want to stay on her journey as much as they have. Stephen Wallem: We do meet him but that’s in the last couple of episodes…there are two onscreen appearances by an actual human being.
