POLISHED EDGE: Celebrity Q&A
Jaime King of ‘Hart of Dixie’ on The CW
Q: Your character, Alabama belle Lemon Breeland, is a little uptight and finds it hard to relax. Can you relate to that?
A: I, as Jaime King, I drive myself, because I have been working since I was 14 years old. I don’t know how to relax. It’s a weird feeling. If I have a day off, then that day off means to be productive. It means getting things done. If I come home after a 16-hour day on “Hart of Dixie,” my husband’s like, “Sit down and watch a movie with me,” and I’m like, “I have to memorize my script for tomorrow. I have to finish writing. I have to follow up on Twitter.” It’s so weird, because I really relate to Lemon in that way.
I’m a Taurus with Virgo rising. That’s part of the problem
with me trying to relax. If I come home, and my room is not entirely clean, I cannot sit down in bed. It’s crazy.
Q: Lemon’s fashion style is always sort of retro, but on this day on set, you seem to echo Grace Kelly. Is that intentional?
A: I’m inspired by film stars from different eras. I did Jimmy Kimmel a year and a half ago, and I did an homage to Grace Kelly, where I wore this really beautiful Reem Acra dress, and I did my hair like Grace. When they offered me the part, I brought the pictures, and I said, “This is what I want Lemon to look like.”
