Interview! Soaps.com sat in on a conference call with Julia Stiles, who plays Blue on the web series. When asked about the filming differences between the web series and film/television series Stiles shared, "Well, I think that the way that viewers watch them is different but day to day I felt like I was on a set of a TV show. The turnaround is faster so whereas in movies and with television shows the amount of time it takes to get something developed and financed and the setup and shot and out in theatres or on TV is so long. I mean it can be years, and the exciting thing about what we’re doing with WIGS is that we can accomplish so much more so quickly… we shot Blue in November and December and it’s already being aired." Watch Julia Stiles in Blue on WIGS, the #1 channel for scripted drama on YouTube.
