Chatting with Hayley McFarland of Lie to Me

Something was seriously missing from the second episode of the second season of FOX’s drama Lie To Me — punishment for Hayley McFarland’s character, Emily Lightman.


Hayley, who plays a young high school student named Emily on the show, lied to her father — Dr. Cal Lightman, played by Tim Roth — about some pretty serious stuff after a classmate of hers was apparently raped at a college frat house party by a star athlete.

If that happened in my house, my teen would be grounded — probably for life.

AUDIO EXCERPT: "I saw Pulp Fiction before I started on Lie To Me. I was kind of nervous going to meet [Tim Roth]. I thought he'd be mean. But he's great."

But Hayley has probably behaved worse on TV; after all, Lie To Me is just one of this young actress’s recurring gigs; she’s also on Showtime’s United States of Tara, starring Toni Collette. On Tara, Hayley plays the best friend of Tara’s son.
