'Deception' premiere: Meagan Good says it has something for everyoneAdd to Favorites | Deception
"I'm always walking that thin line of actually having a relationship and growing up in those walls and not having seen them for 17 years with actually going back and being a cop," says Good on "Today."
"Today" host Willie Geist points out that perhaps the family is using her because of that relationship -- "They can pull some things on you, you might trust them in a way you shouldn't."
Good agrees that that is part of it.
"It's a little bit of both. They're also using me for healing, too," says Good. "It's very comforting for [Vivian's father] Robert to have me there because I was a childhood friend."
Creatively, Good says the show is so much fun for her because it has a little something for everyone.
"It's awesome. It's definitely a change, working every day and being [the star]," says Good. "I feel like I'm becoming better at my craft. I love the character. I love that I get a chance to do everything -- from action to drama, love triangle, it's a family drama, it's a procedural. You get your creative fix."
"Deception" premieres Monday night, Jan. 7, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. Watch a preview below.
