From creator/writer/director Mike White, the second installment of the HBO series The White Lotus is set at a beautiful resort in Sicily, Italy, where hotel manager Valentina (Sabrina Impacciatore) is ready to assist various guests in achieving everything they want out of their trip, whether that’s with family, for business reasons, or of a more romantic nature. After becoming newly wealthy, as a result of a recent professional success, Ethan Spiller (Will Sharpe) and his wife Harper (Aubrey Plaza) accompany his old college roommate Cameron (Theo James) and his wife Daphne (Meghann Fahy) on a lavish vacation that might ultimately have a hidden purpose.

During this interview with Collider, co-stars Plaza and Sharpe talked about who Ethan and Harper were before taking this trip, finding themselves in a relationship rut, Ethan’s distrust of Cameron, that uncomfortable moment between Harper and Cameron, and the experience of shooting at that incredible palazzo.

Collider: I could have watched a separate show just of your characters because I found their dynamics so fascinating to watch. When we meet this couple, they seem to be at a very interesting place in their relationship. They’re sort of resigned to certain things, and they aren’t really looking to change things too much. Who do you think they were prior to this trip, or even prior to everything that Ethan has gone through?

WILL SHARPE: That’s a good question. I guess they’re trying to work that out. Between us and Mike [White], we decided it was probably seven years down the line, and they’ve very much found their comfort zone, but that comfort zone is starting to feel uncomfortable and they’re in a bit of a rut. They tell themselves they’re very honest with each other and that they have a good relationship, but maybe they’re not honest with each other about the most complex, difficult things. What were they like? I definitely don’t think Ethan was ever a massive party animal or anything, but was Harper?

AUBREY PLAZA: It’s funny, we talked about this because I kept being like, “Harper has a wild side, we just haven’t seen it in a while.” We talked about that. I feel like they’re one of those couples that met in their twenties. They met young. They were friends. They’re soulmates. They’re best friends that fell in love and got married, and they’ve been together for a long time. There is an innocence there almost, even though they’ve been together for a long time. It feels like they’re those people. They’re smart and intelligent. They have good schooling. They do everything right. They’re right, but are they right?

After taking over The White Lotus Sicily, Aubrey Plaza is coming for Jimmy Kimmel’s job next.

The actress, who stars in season two of HBO’s fan favorite anthology series The White Lotus, is sharing what she’d like to do after the season’s over—and it involves a major career pivot.

“I’m really good at hosting,” she exclusively told E! News at the 13th Annual Governors Awards Nov. 19. “In fact, I pitched myself for the Academy Awards, but they didn’t go for it. They already got what’s his name, Jimmy Kimmel? Maybe for next year.”

Though Plaza is famously known for her practical jokes, this one could be real: When asked if she was serious about the gig, the actress responded, “Of course.”

So, if the Academy were to take Plaza up on her offer, what could audiences look forward to?

“No political bulls–t,” she quipped. “Just good old-fashioned honoring films and the magic of movies. You know, I’m the Billy Crystal of this generation, and everybody tells me that.”

In the meantime, Plaza is focusing on her other projects: Currently, she’s filming Francis Ford Coppola’s newest epic Megalopolis alongside Adam Driver, Shia LaBeouf and Dustin Hoffman, and watching the rest of The White Lotus season two air, which she says has a much larger audience than her typical roles.

“It’s fun,” the 38-year-old noted. “I mean, I’m excited when anyone sees my work because I do a lot of small movies like Emily the Criminal, which is why I’m here tonight, and a lot of people don’t get to see that. So it’s pretty wild to be on a show that has like such high ratings.”

The White Lotus season two airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max.

The official trailer for The White Lotus season 2 was released today! Season 2 premieres October 30 on HBO Max.

When it was announced that The White Lotus universe would be introducing Aubrey Plaza, fans were naturally excited at the prospect of Plaza’s sarcastic character having a face-off with Jennifer Coolidge‘s Emmy-winning character Tanya.

In reality, Plaza says that the character was written for her with her in mind, in only a way that her close friend Mike White could be able to, and that made it her hardest role yet. “Without going into personal details, Mike knows me very, very well, on a way more intimate level than most people know me, and a lot of what he wrote was informed by just knowing me on that intimate level,” Plaza told EW.

The former Parks and Rec actress said that playing the role was intense due to the similarities between her and her character, Harper. “It was really intense for me, reading it and shooting it. I relate to this character more than any character I’ve ever played. It’s really, really close to home. It felt very naked. It was pretty devastating and hard.”

“Mike’s writing is just so subtle but there’s such a deep truth to it that just crushes me,” Plaza added, explaining that it was hard for her to get out of her character’s mindset when she wasn’t working. “I wanted so badly to do a good job, and Harper’s journey, there’s a lot of moments in this season that felt very nightmare-ish to me. It just felt real, and shaking that off was a big obstacle for me. I don’t regret it because I wanted to give Mike everything, no matter what happened. But I’ll be terrified and horrified to see it.”

Still, the second season of the hit series will not follow the same plot devices as the acclaimed first season, which should keep viewers on their toes. “It’s more juicy, it feels like the stakes are higher and there’s more intense drama and plot twists than the first season,” Plaza explained. “Italy has this kind of machismo culture that we’re thrust into and when you have a bunch of Americans going to Europe, there’s always that discourse with the puritanical American style versus the Italians who just seem to be much more open and sexual, to be blunt.” We all know how hard it can be when a bunch of Americans go to Italy.

Season two of The White Lotus premieres October 30th on HBO.
