Mary McDonnell Interview

Major Crimes is one of the most popular crime drama shows on television, portraying a special squad within the LAPD that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. It has taken the already rich and developed characters of The Closer and endowed them with more back story and more emotional depth. This show explores how these law enforcement officers work together as a special squad within the LAPD. After capturing the perpetrator, they work with prosecutors to ensure a conviction. 

Mary McDonnell stars as Captain Sharon Raydor in the crime drama Major Crimes. Her character was first introduced as a police captain in the Forensic Investigation Division on the television show The Closer. She came into her own in the spin-off as the head of police unit who always appears to be the voice of reason.
