'The Killing's' Michelle Forbes does a 180 from 'True Blood'

In AMC's new series "The Killing," Michelle Forbes plays a woman whose teenage daughter has been murdered, and it delves deeply into her and her family's grief.

So in other words, she's about as far removed from Maryann Forester on "True Blood" as it's possible to get.

"That was indeed the point," Forbes tells Zap2it with a laugh.

"The Killing," which premieres April 3, follows the aftermath of the killing of a 17-year-old girl named Rosie Larsen (Katie Findlay) in Seattle. It follows the homicide detectives (Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman) who catch the case, a city councilman (Billy Campbell) who has a connection to the case, and Rosie's family, including parents Mitch (Forbes) and Stan Larsen (Brent Sexton).

The family "is part of this very sad kitchen-sink drama," Forbes says in the video above, which we shot with her Monday (March 21) following her appearance on the KTLA morning show. "It takes each [episode] as a 24-hour period. You really get to experience grief as it happens moment to moment, as opposed to glossing over the bits that are ugly to watch and uncomfortable to watch."

Forbes -- who's also appeared on "24," "Battlestar Galactica," "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Homicide" -- says that while she was looking for something different after "True Blood," she's not always looking for a changeup.

"Sometimes there's somebody you want to work with -- like on 'In Treatment,' I heard [director] Rodrigo Garcia and [series lead] Gabriel Byrne, and I just sort of jumped at the chance to do it," she says. "Sometimes there's a new genre you want to look at ... it really all depends. And in this case, when I read the story, this character, Mitch, just jumped out at me. There was no getting away from her. So sometimes I think it chooses you."

Hit play on the video above (as well as the one below, from KTLA) to hear more from Forbes on "The Killing." The series premieres at 9 p.m. ET Sunday, April 3 on AMC.
