Tal, 29, starred as Jo Harvelle on several seasons of Supernatural and she says the experience helped her understand what her new character, Marti Gerritsen, is going through.
“I got to observe that from a safe place because I was never a lead character on [Supernatural], but I spent enough time on the show to see how fans respond to the lead actors,” Tal says.
Tal, who visited The Hollywood Reporter’s video lounge to talk about Cult, will play two characters on the show. She’ll play Marti, an actress on the show-within-the-show (also called Cult), and Kelly Collins, the character on the inside show.
THR also asked Tal, who shoots Cult in Canada, about what she plans to do for the show’s Feb. 19 premiere.
“I’m starting to try and adopt that aspect of celebrating one’s landmarks,” she says, adding that she went to a theater with a bunch of friends to see Broken City, the January release in which she co-starred with Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
“I would usually just go by myself and sit in the back and kind of cower,” she adds.
On the night of the Cult premiere, Tal says she plans on breaking bread with the cast.
“I’m going to invite my castmembers and see if they want to go to dinner and not think about it, not worry about ratings, not worry about how it’s doing and just celebrate the fact that we did it and we like each other,” she says.
Cult premieres on at 9 p.m. Tuesday on The CW.
