Taking place in pre-Revolution Paris, Dangerous Liaisons tells the story of the Marquise de Merteuil who seeks revenge on her ex-lover. The story was made famous by the iconic Glenn Close, John Malkovich and Michelle Pfeiffer film, but STARZ now presents a television series by the same name.

Kosar Ali, who plays Victoire, recently sat down for a conversation with uInterview founder Erik Meers to discuss the reimagining of the 1988 classic.

“In this version, I think, actors bring a very personal point of view to the characters,” Ali revealed. “The characters feel very human. We explore so many dynamics which is very interesting.”

She went on to provide insight into her character, Victoire.

“Victoire is the detective of the show,” the actress said. “She’s Camille’s chambermaid but also her partner in crime, her best friend. More than that, she’s a very humorous character. She’s very cheeky, very opinionated and holds a lot of strength.”

Ali also shared her favorite part of being on set and teased one of the most memorable moments for her.

“It was incredible working on the set,” she said. “I always say the production team and the designers really just transported us into the world. My favorite part, without spoiling it, was when I went into disguise and did a lot of running. I really enjoyed that and it was really fun.”

Dangerous Liaisons is available to stream on STARZ now.
