Though Cassidy Freeman is currently staying busy with her role as Amber Gemstone on “The Righteous Gemstones,” that didn’t stop her from effusively declaring her affection for the many friends that she’d made while working on “Longmire.”
While it’s normal for stars to discuss having positive working relationships on their projects, Freeman name-dropped plenty of “Longmire” players in the interview, including some deep cuts. “Our camera department, Jimmy Muro, was one of our DPs, and he’s like a legend. He was the original camera Steadicam operator. Sometimes he couldn’t find [the] words,” she explained. “He’d be like [gesturing in growls], and I’d be like, yes, I think I know what you mean. He just had so much passion, and he has such a beautiful eye with the camera.”
Notably, Freeman and Michael Rosenbaum have a bit of history, as Freeman took over as the villain on “Smallville” after Rosenbaum left the series at the tail end of its seventh season. This could be part of why she was so open with the host, but regardless, it’s crystal clear that she loved working on “Longmire” and that she’d come back for more in a heartbeat.
