Light plays Shelly Pfefferman on the dramedy, which also stars Jeffrey Tambor, Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, and Gaby Hoffmann.
Discussing season three, Light said viewers will discover more about Shelly and Maura’s past:
What will be revealed is more of the past of Shelly and Maura, and how the complexities came to be in that relationship. And you will understand many of the dynamics of why Shelly operates the way that she does.
So many people come up to me and say, “Oh my God, your children, they’re so horrible; they’re just the most narcissistic horrible children,” and then they say, “I love them. I can’t stop watching them.” Well, I think it’s also true for Shelly, as each one of us orbits in a particular way, and then we reach out of that orbit to others. I think you’re going to come to understand why the kids are the way that they are, and what has transpired through life and our relationships—why we as the Pfefferman’s are so connected, and why we are so self-involved. People are not just self-involved for no reason. There are always reasons why someone is the way that they are.”
Season three of Transparent is slated to premiere later this year.
