POLISHED EDGE: Celebrity Q&A
Natalie Zea of ‘Justified’ on FX
Q: Court stenographer Winona married, then divorced U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant). Then she married and divorced Realtor Gary Hawkins (William Ragsdale), then she got back together with Raylan, with whom she is now having a baby. What would you like for Winona this season?
A: She needs to figure some stuff out? She’s taking control. Winona needs to find a friend. I would love to see Winona interact with somebody other than Raylan or Gary. I’ve never understood the idea of breaking up for a little while. If I’m going to do that, that’s permanent, because it’s such a traumatic experience. If this isn’t really how this is supposed to go, then let’s figure out some other thing.
Q: There’s a palpable sense between Winona and Raylan that they are a real couple, not just two people who occasionally call each other “honey.” Is that more in the writing or in the performance?
A: Credit does go to the writers for trusting us and allowing us to do this, but a lot of this is Tim (who walks by at this moment on the “Justified” set). We’re talking about you! Tim is so specific, and it really comes from that specificity, making sure that it’s all at once precise and all at once able to be liquid. So the terrain of the scene is continually changing and natural.
It’s something you have to work at but not something you can name. Tim is really aware of what’s not spoken. So much can be said without words.
