Iconic Catherine O'Hara

Of all the people who love the character of Moira Rose on the CBC-TV comedy Schitt’s Creek, it seems no one loves her more than the actress who plays her, Canadian comedy legend Catherine O’Hara.

“No!” O’Hara exclaims emphatically when I suggest during a chat about the show that Moira is selfish.

“I will defend her to the death,” she says with a laugh.

For the uninitiated, Moira is the over-the-top matriarch of the Rose family, a former soap-opera star married to a filthy rich video-store magnate (played by O’Hara’s former SCTVco-star Eugene Levy). The couple loses everything and are forced to move with their two spoiled adult kids to Schitt’s Creek, a small town they bought as a joke.

Over four successful seasons — the fifth begins Jan. 8 at 9 p.m. — the family has slowly adapted to its reduced circumstances. Johnny (Levy) has focused on turning around the rundown motel they live in; son David (Levy’s real-life son Daniel) has opened a store and started a relationship; daughter Alexis (Annie Murphy) has also found love and new maturity.

Moira has grown, too — she has made friends and turned her considerable energies to trying to improve the town — but O’Hara feels she is the character who’s hanging on hardest to the life the Roses used to live and intend to return to someday.
