Natalie Zea: It Doesn't Feel As X-Rated As The Subject Matter

Posted: Updated:

Natalie Zea will tell you all you want to know about her role as a phone-sex operator whose life takes a romantic and fantastic turn in the new movie, "Sweet Talk" (which will play on Video On Demand beginning Sunday), but don't ask her whether she's returning to "The Following."

She's apparently been sworn to secrecy.

When Season One of "The Following" ended, the fates of both Kevin Bacon and Natalie's characters were up in the air.  And with Ryan and Claire each sporting some seriously fatal-looking knife wounds lying on the floor of Ryan's kitchen, Zap2It.com, as well as many fans, wondered whether Season Two would follow the same format of the first season but with different characters.

But it looks like Claire is a survivor, since Zea has been confirmed to be returning to the FOX drama for Season Two, TV Guide Magazine reports. After signing an eleventh-hour deal, there is no word yet on how many episodes she'll last. Will Claire fight to heal and live to see another story line, or will she be able to say her last goodbyes before succumbing to her injuries?

Oh, and did we tell you Natalie recently got engaged?  She talks about that, too, when she joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.
