Mary-Louise Parker reprises to her role tonight as Nancy Botwin, America’s favorite pot-dealing TV mom, on Showtime’s “Weeds.”
The show entering its sixth season follows Nancy’s Quixotic journeys with her children, childish brother-in-law and financial/legal woes in tow.
Season Six finds the family on the run after Nancy’s son, Shane, killed his mother’s blackmailer in Mexico. Now, the family is on the run from both the authorities and a drug cartel.
Parker, who won the 2006 Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series-Comedy or Musical for her portrayal, said in a recent interview that she enjoys her job.
“I like to work,” she told Showbizspy.com. “I don’t understand when actors complain… Youre getting paid to act…That I get to do what I love is amazing. I truly feel lucky that I get to do this.
