I had the honour of interviewing the lovely, Joelle Carter, who plays Ava Crowder on the new FX drama, Justified, in a one-on-one phone interview. So this time ALL the questions are mine 😀 . Joelle has been in many films , such as High Fidelity and American Pie 2. As well as TV shows like Wonderland and CSI: Miami. If you haven’t had the chance to watch Justified yet you don’t know what you are missing, it’s FAB-U-LOUS!
Justified is focused on Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant). Marshal Givens, is as old school as one can get these days with a cowboy hat, cowboy boots, and carrying his weapon in his side holster. He only shoots when he has too, and he shoots to kill because he believes that’s the purpose of a gun. After a shooting in Miami, where his actions drew too much attention from his superiors, he was sent to his home town in Kentucky to work as a Marshal there.
Kentucky holds a lot of history for Raylan, and he’ll interact with a few people from his past, including Ava Crowder (Joelle Carter), who was the high school cheerleader he had a crush on as a young man. The sexual tension between these two now is amazing, and it makes for both serious and comical moments.
There are some inspiring talents behind the screen as well with the show written/produced by Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty), the great crime novelist, and produced by Graham Yost (Boomtown), Michael Dinner (Sons of Anarchy, Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly (Kidnapped). This show will keep you both on the edge of your seat with the suspense and laughing at the characters. I believe this is one of the best new shows in a while so don’t miss it, Tuesday nights at 10 pm on FX.
Now that we have some background on the show, let’s get to the fun part… the interview. Continue reading
