She has become a gambling addict, an eternal optimist, and a compulsive liar. For a while, she even got to be a brilliant scientist and a passionate musician.

It’s interesting to see McIver embrace these personalities, but according to the actress, it is still important for her to maintain Liv’s core personality in each episode.

“I think part of the challenge is maintaining Liv each week, and her integrity,” the actress told Under the Radar Magazine. “So I try to find different ways to incorporate the characteristics of each person whose brain is eaten by Liv, but still have the audience invested in Liv as a character.”

McIver is proud of the success attained by the show, and she believes they were able to break through the zombie craze with something unique.

“We wanted to have a little bit of the gore and psychological stuff, but we also wanted to have a laugh about it and be self-aware,” she said.

Seeing zombies devour brains is usually disgusting to watch, but “iZombie” somehow managed to make it look not as horrifying as it truly is.

To create the brains, the “iZombie” team experiments with “clumps of gelatine, bits of corn syrup, and vegetable juice,” McIver revealed.

“During my last episode, the crew made a concoction of bread crumbs and mushrooms-with bits of fake brain in the mix, of course. It was actually pretty delicious. After we finished the shoot I kept eating it, which everyone found to be pretty hilarious,” she continued.

McIver earlier teased that they are actually planning to do something different for the next season.

“I think now that our show is going into the third season, there’s room to shake the structure a little bit and play outside the box,” McIver told Comic Book Resources. “But there are certainly great things about it being a procedural as a device for her being able to eat those brains each week, and for it to hang on these very specific story hooks can be fantastic, too.”

“iZombie” season 3 is slated for the 2016-2017 roster of The CW.
