Transcript for Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lisette Olivera dish on new action-adventure series
>>> FINDING ANYTHING YOU LIKE? >> YOU'RE BILLY. >> WHO WERE YOU EXPECTING? >> I DON'T KNOW. BUT I DIDN'T EXPECT SOMEONE WHO LOOKS LIKE THEY WALKED OUT OF THE TOWN IN ""BIG LITTLE LIES."" >> THIS ISN'T A TELEVISION SHOW. WHERE'S THE RELIC? >> WHERE'S OREN? OREN. >> I'VE KEPT MY SIDE OF THE BARGAIN. NOW, WHERE'S THE RELIC? >> OH MY. SO INTENSE THERE, ISN'T IT? >> WHERE IS THE RELIC? >> YES. >> WELCOME BACK. THAT WAS A SNEAK PEEK AT THE NEW DISNEY PLUS ACTION-ADVENTURE SERIES "NATIONAL TREASURE: EDGE OF HISTORY." I'M SO EXCITED TO WATCH THIS. >> LOOKS SO GOOD. >> THERE'S A RACE TO FIND LOST TREASURE, BUT THE BIG QUESTION IS, WHO WILL FIND IT FIRST? >> THAT'S A BIG QUESTION THAT OUR NEXT GUESTS ARE HERE TO TELL US ALL ABOUT IT. PLEASE HELP US WELCOME TO THE "GMA3" STUDIO, OSCAR WINNER CATHERINE ZETA-JONES AND LISETTE OLIVERA. >> HELLO, GUYS. >> WELL, FIRST, CONGRATULATIONS. THIS IS A BIG DEAL HERE. >> THIS IS A BIG DEAL. IT'S AN AMAZING, AMAZING SHOW, AND THIS, MY LEADING LADY, IS JUST -- TAKES US ON A RIDE TO FIND THIS TREASURE, BUT REALLY, I'LL LET LISETTE SPEAK MORE ABOUT IT, BUT WE HAVE THIS AMAZING KIND OF CAT-AND-MOUSE. >> I SEE. THAT'S WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT, THE INTENSITY THERE. >> I'M A LITTLE BIT ON THE DARKER SIDE, AS THE CLIP SUGGESTS. >> SO, WHAT'S IT LIKE PLAYING A NOT-SO-NICE SHADY CHARACTER? >> IT'S SO MUCH FUN, AND I WOULD REALLY RECOMMEND IT, BECAUSE YOU KNOW, WE SPEND A LOT OF OUR TIME CURBING, FILTERING DOWN WHAT WE REALLY WANT TO SAY. >> ALWAYS. >> AND THEN SOMETIMES IT'S NICE TO HAVE A ROLE THAT'S, LIKE, I CAN REALLY PUSH THE BORDER. I CAN ACTUALLY DO AND SAY WHAT I WANT. BUT IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. THE WHOLE SERIES IS GREAT. AND IT CAME FROM A FANTASTIC FRANCHISE, YOU KNOW? THAT WAS MORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO. >> AND THE HAIR IS FABULOUS. I LOVE THE BLONDE BOB THING GOING ON. >> DO BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN? >> THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION. >> YOU HAVE TO WATCH AND FIND OUT. >> FIND OUT. >> ABSOLUTELY. >> SO, LISETTE, WE ARE ALL ABSOLUTELY FANS. SUCH FANS OF THE "NATIONAL TREASURE" FRANCHISE. YOU BRING US ON THIS JOURNEY. YOUR CHARACTER WALKS US THROUGH THE JOURNEY. IT'S FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE. HOW WAS THAT, TACKLING THAT ROLE AND JUST IN SUCH A GRACEFUL WAY? >> WELL, THANK YOU. IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE TO START OFF. I MEAN, I WAS A FAN OF THE "NATIONAL TREASURE" FILMS SINCE THE BEGINNING. I REMEMBER WATCHING THE SECOND ONE WHEN I WAS 7 YEARS OLD IN THE THEATER WITH MY FAMILY. SO, IT WAS A REALLY BIG DEAL WHEN I GOT THIS PART. I MEAN, I HAD NEVER DONE A TV SERIES PRIOR TO, SO RIGHT FROM THE JUMP, YOU KNOW, I HAD HEARD ABOUT JESS VALENZUELA FROM THE AUDITION PROCESS, AND IMMEDIATELY, MY HEART SOARED. SHE WAS THIS REALLY BRIGHT, INTELLIGENT YOUNG LATINA WOMAN THAT REALLY WAS JUST KIND OF THE BEST WAY TO CONTINUE THE STORY FORWARD. SHE, ONE DAY, ENCOUNTERS THE IDEA FROM HARVEY KITAL'S CHARACTER, WHO PLAYS AGENT SEDUSKY IN THE FRANCHISE ABOUT HER NECKLACE, THAT MAYBE HER FATHER HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS GREAT LOST TREASURE, AND SHE DIVES INTO THE HISTORY OF HER FAMILY AND THE HISTORY OF WHAT THAT TREASURE ENTAILS. IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE RIDE TO PLAY HER, AND I'M EXCITED FOR EVERYONE TO SEE IT. >> IT'S NOT EVERY DAY THAT YOU GET A CHANCE TO WORK WITH A LEGEND. WHAT'S IT BEEN LIKE WORKING NEXT TO THE CATHERINE ZETA-JONES? >> OH MY GOSH. >> OH MY GOSH, OKAY, FIRST OFF, SINCE THE BEGINNING, SHE JUST BRIGHTENS A ROOM EVERYWHERE THAT SHE GOES. BUT ALSO, I THINK, YOU KNOW, AND I HAVE TOLD YOU THIS BVEFORE, BT JUST TO ACT ALONGSIDE YOU AND TO BE AT THE RECEIVING END OF YOUR TALENT REALLY IS JUST A DREAM COME TRUE. I'VE BEEN A FAN OF CATHERINE MY WHOLE LIFE. WHEN I HEARD THAT SHE HAD GOTTEN THE ROLE, THAT SHE WAS GOING TO ACT WITH ME, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT, TRUTHFULLY. BUT SHE IS JUST SO GRACEFUL AND JUST SUCH A PRO. AND ALSO, I'D LIKE TO ADD THERE ARE SO MANY LITTLE ELEMENTS THAT I KNOW THAT SHE ADDED THAT WASN'T IN THE SCRIPT, AND THAT'S JUST, YOU KNOW, BEING CATHERINE ZETA-JONES. >> IT'S SO FUNNY, TO BE, LIKE, THIS CAT AND MOUSE KIND OF ADVERSARIES IN THE SHOW, BUT TO HAVE THIS REALLY, REALLY WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH LISETTE, AND I'M GOING TO SOUND GRANDIOSE, BUT I REALLY SAW A BIT OF MYSELF IN HER IN THAT I REMEMBER THAT MOMENT OF BEING ON A SET WHERE IT'S -- YOU KNOW, THIS IS A LOT OF WEIGHT ON YOUR SHOULDERS. >> BUTTERFLIES. YOU DON'T WANT TO MESS ANYTHING UP. >> YOU'RE WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE CERTAIN THINGS AND HAVE KUDOS AND IT'S NOT JUST FOR A WEEKEND. IT'S FOR FIVE AND A HALF MONTHS. AND THEN FORGET ABOUT IT. AND SHE WAS THE PROFESSIONAL TO AN UNBELIEVABLE AND CONSCIENTIOUS AND TALENTED, AND IN THAT SHE WAS BRINGING SO MUCH TO THE TABLE. HER YOUTH AND HER -- DIDN'T QUASH THIS AMAZING AMOUNT OF TALENT AND I JUST HAD A BALL WITH HER. AND I WAS LIKE MOMMY BEAR OFF CAMERA. REALLY NASTY BEAR ON CAMERA. >> IT'S TRUE. IT'S TRUE. >> THIS IS THE BEST STAGE MOM TO HAVE, RIGHT? >> 1,000%. >> I DID FEEL LIKE MAMA ROSE, YEAH. BUT YEAH, SHE'S AMAZING. BUT THE WHOLE SHOW IS -- LIKE LISETTE JUST SAID, IT'S A NEW -- LET'S TAKE A FRANCHISE, IF IT'S NOT BROKEN, WHY FIX IT? BUT TO INJECT INTO THIS YOUTH AND THIS -- AND NEW CHARACTERS, OF COURSE, SOME SURPRISES OF THE OLD FAVORITE CHARACTERS COMING BACK. BUT JUST THE TECHNOLOGY ALONE OF TRYING TO PIECE THE PUZZLE TOGETHER THAT WE HAVE SINCE THE ORIGINAL. AND LIKE THE ORIGINAL, THIS IS A 19-MINUTE CAPSULE, WE HAVE, LIKE, TEN EPISODES, SO THE AUDIENCE REALLY GETS BROUGHT IN ON THIS. >> JUICY. >> AND INTERACTIVELY TRYING TO PIECE THE PUZZLE TOGETHER WITH US AS WE MOVE ALONG. IT'S SO MUCH FUN. IT'S A REAL ROMP. >> SPEAKING OF WORK, IT'S A LOT OF WORK. WE GOT BOTH "WEDNESDAY" AND NOW "NATIONAL TREASURE," AND THEY'RE COMING TO US BACK-TO-BACK. HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU FIND TIME TO DO ALL THIS? DID YOU DO IT SIMULTANEOUSLY? >> I'M LIKE A BUS, DARLING. YOU WAIT AND WAIT AND TWO COME TOGETHER, AND YOU GO, I'M GOING TO TAKE THE TRAIN. >> GO FOR IT. YOU CAN DO IT. >> I WAS BLESSED TO HAVE TWO GREAT PROJECTS THAT ARE IN EVERYONE'S SUBCONSCIOUS, REALLY, YOU KNOW, "WEDNESDAY," THE ADDAMS FAMILY AND "NATIONAL TREASURE," IT'S A HUGE FAN BASE, AND IT'S JUST THE WAY THE GODS WERE ALIGNED. AND SO IT WAS -- IT DIDN'T FEEL LIKE WORK, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, AT ALL. IT JUST FELT -- IT WAS JUST A LOT OF FUN, AND WHEN THINGS GET RECEIVED SO WELL, LIKE OUR SHOW AND "WEDNESDAY," IT'S -- COMING ON YOUR SHOW IS SO MUCH EASIER THAN TRYING TO KIND OF, LIKE, PEDAL AWAY AT SOMETHING THAT YOU'RE, LIKE, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THIS, KIDS. BUT I'M JUST VERY HAPPY TO BE INVOLVED WITH SUCH GOOD WORK. >> OH MY. FANTASTIC. DEFI DEFINITELY LOOKING FORWARD TO THE SERIES. IT'S SO NICE TO MEET YOU BOTH. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. CATHERINE ZETA-JONES, LISETTE OLIVERA, IT WAS SUCH A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU HERE TODAY. "NATIONAL TREASURE: EDGE OF HISTORY" WILL PREMIER DECEMBER 14th WITH TWO EPISODES EXCLUSIVELY ON DISNEY PLUS. >> CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT. GOOD TO SEE YOU GUYS. YOUR MOM IS IN THE AUDIENCE. MOM, HEY. HOW YOU DOING? >> YAY. >> ALWAYS GOOD TO HAVE MOM IN THE HOUSE. >> THERE SHE IS. SHE SAID SHE WAS COMING. >> SHE IS GOING TO GET SO MAD. >> SHE IS. >> IF I DID THAT TO MY MOM, SHE WOULD, LIKE, NEVER SPEAK TO ME AGAIN. >> SHE'S NEVER COMING TO ANYTHING AGAIN, YOU GUYS. OH MY
