Feature: Roswell

Taking the Plunge

Shiri Appleby, now that it's all over As Roswell faded to black for the last time on Sky 1, star Shiri Appleby considered her last days on set and the next stage of her career…

And on the final day, Shiri Appleby delivered a speech. Roswell was officially declared dead by then, and Appleby, who’d spent the last three years portraying Liz Parker, stood before the show’s cast and crew. It was time to say goodbye and thank you, and time as well to apologize for any youthful transgressions. “I was crying when I was saying it,” Appleby recalls. “I said something to the effect of you work with these adults constantly and you’re a child, and they want to treat you like an adult, but at the same time they realize you’re going through so many growing pains and they’re helping you out. It’s very confusing, especially when you’re not surrounded by people who are going through the same thing. I felt like I was so new to it when the show started and a lot of them took me under their wings and parented me a lot. In a way it was like saying goodbye to a lot of surrogate parents. It was really kind of sad. I still talk to a lot of the Roswell people. It was a safe environment and I was able to trust certain people, and I was saying goodbye and thank you for that.”

Season Three, and the series itself, concluded with the appropriately titled episode Graduation. Those who hadn’t graduated earlier – Isabel (Katherine Heigl) – or simply flunked their exams – Michael (Bren-dan Fehr) – made their own choices as Liz, Max (Jason Behr), Kyle (Nick Wechsler) and Maria (Majandra Delfino) graduated from high school, made pivotal career and relationship decisions, dodged the baddies once again and went about closing chapters of their respective lives. You’ll have to wait and see if there’s a happy ending for Liz and Max, but in other key developments, Liz began to experience disturbing Dead Zone-like visions of the future, and she gave her journal to her family so that they could finally understand how and why the last three years had been filled with so much romance, crying, death, lying, criminal behaviour and otherworldly craziness.
