Drop Dead Diva ends their season with an intriguing story about Paige McBride, a country star who is charged with the murder of her ex-boyfriend, the kicker being that she outlined how she would like to kill him in one of her songs. Chelsea Kane , who plays McBride, was on hand to tell TV Equals about her role, her haircut , and the cult of fanaticism. On playing Paige McBride Kane had a blast delving into her character’s music star life. "[T]his was so much fun to play a little country singer. I grew up singing and doing theatre and, of course, I’m a huge fan of the Taylor Swifts and Carrie Underwoods of the world and of course I don’t consider myself a singer, so to kind of get thrown into this pop star character was a lot of fun," she said. "And I had a great time shooting this because I had just finished shooting the first season of [Baby Daddy] on ABC Family, which is live audience sitcom. So, to suddenly go back in to single camera , a little more dramatic role, it was nice to kind of dip back into something like that."
