9-1-1 Lone Star’s Gina Torres requested change for Tommy scene

9-1-1: Lone Star Season 4 Episode 13 Preview

Fans were gushing over Tommy Vega’s (played by Gina Torres) stunning entrance on Tuesday’s 9-1-1 Lone Star, but the already iconic scene almost looked a lot different.

In this week’s episode on Fox, Tongues Out, Tommy’s relationship with new pastor Trevor (DB Woodside) became the subject of mean-spirited gossip amongst the congregation.

Trevor initially attempted to end things to make their lives easier, but Tommy was having none of it.

Later, she put the church group in her place by striding in mid-service in a striking red jumpsuit and planting a kiss on Trevor at the pulpit.

Torres has now revealed the script originally called for Tommy to be wearing a red dress until the jumpsuit leaped out at her during a wardrobe fitting.

“I loved strolling down that aisle,” the actress recalled. “It was another level of ‘come at me.’

“And when I read her speech for the first time, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s bold. We’re just going there, huh?’ Tommy absolutely does not care now.”

Tommy even used actual Bible verses during her monologue to put the gossips in their place, so there shouldn’t be any more unwanted chatter about her personal life going forward.

“I don’t think they’ll have any more problems at church,” Torres told TV Line.

“I don’t think anybody else wants to get called out.”

Although Tommy and Trevor’s relationship is in the best position possible now, Torres warned fans not to expect any more big steps for the time being.

“Part of the conversations that I’ve had with [showrunner Tim Minear] and the writers is, you know, does Tommy love Jesus as much as Trevor does?” she said.

“I don’t know! That’s something they have to figure out and work through together.”

Trevor’s religious devotion could eventually become a little intense for Tommy, though that’s a conversation to be saved for a later date.

For now, fans are still reeling over Tommy’s stand against the congregation and obsessed with her eye-catching jumpsuit look.

Rian Ashley exclaimed: “GRACE IS ME. Shocked. In thrall. And obsessed with this red jumpsuit that Tommy is rocking. AND SHE CURSING AT THE PODIUM. That is MY heathen.”

@Mrs_Amelia said: “Ms. Tommy Vega walked up in the church with a GORG red jumpsuit.

“Ready to give a sermon to these nosy women to feast on. I Know That’s Right!”

And @freneticfloetry tweeted: “Mother walked in in red. TOMMY. THE BADDEST B***H.”

9-1-1 Lone Star season 4 continues Tuesdays on Fox in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
