POLISHED EDGE: Celebrity Q&A
Wilson Bethel of ‘Hart of Dixie’ on The CW
Q: You’re from New Hampshire, but here you are in Los Angeles. How did that happen?
A: I graduated high school when I was 17, spent a year traveling around North and West Africa. When I returned from that trip, I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I was living up in San Francisco at the time, decided I was going to move out to New York where my brother was in school. So I packed up my things and started driving east, got as far as Los Angeles. ... I kept thinking, I’ll just stick around for another week, couple of weeks, and it just kept extending.
Q: What did you like about L.A.?
A: I was very hellbent on carving out my own path. At this point, I didn’t know a soul here in Los Angeles except one friend. I like the idea of being someplace where none of my people had been before and really figuring it out for myself. I felt I planted my flag here in L.A., made it my own.
Q: Do your friends like your show?
A: It’s the kind of show that even snobby types -- of whom I have many in my immediate circle; I don’t know why I hang out with so many snobs, we find each other -- they’ve given me the benefit of the doubt. They’ve found themselves liking it against their better judgment. Once people allow themselves to open up to it a little bit, it gets under your skin.
