If you have Netflix, you’ve seen Trine Christensen as Jacob Gustavson’s wife on Godless, the seven-episode Western miniseries that is up for twelve Emmy Awards this year, including nominations for Best Actor (Jeff Daniels), Best Limited Series, plus writing and directing nods for series creator Scott Frank. If you watch the AMC original series Preacher, you know her as the wife of The Saint of Killers (the character played by Graham McTavish). Trine began her acting career doing stunts on The Terminator: Salvation, Gamer and The Spy Next Door. She has also appeared in numerous short films, as well as such network, cable and streaming series as Longmire, Breaking Bad, The Brave, Killer Women and Smitty’s.
Born in Denmark, Trine originally studied to be a scientist until a trip to New Mexico changed the course of her life and set her on a path to becoming an actor. We’ll ask her about that, plus we’ll talk about the challenges of playing a character who does not have a first name, and how Trine recently “found her game” while learning comedy improv skills with the Upright Citizens Brigade. Trine Christensen will join us in our first hour.
Ali Agirnas, another cast member of Godless, will join us in our second hour. Ali plays Nicholas Gustavson, the frontiersman who helps set up Frank Griffin’s now iconic line “This is Godless country” in the Netflix miniseries.
Ali is relatively new to acting, having made his professional debut just ten years ago after a successful career as an entrepreneur. We’ll talk about his back story (which includes growing up in Turkey and Germany), his passion for surfing, and how proud he was to speak his father’s native language when he played a Turkish detective on the NBC series The Brave.
Also joining us this week will be Adam Sharp, interim president of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (aka The Daytime Emmy Awards) and former Head of News, Government and Elections at Twitter. Earlier this year, the Daytime Emmy Awards more than doubled its viewership from last year’s telecast—an impressive feat that becomes even more amazing when you realize the Daytime Emmys pulled that off this year without being televised on a traditional network. We will ask Adam how they did that. We’ll also discuss why daytime TV in its many formats remains viable today, the difference between false news and fake news, and what to look for so that you don’t fall for either. Adam Sharp will join us in our first hour.
Plus: Music and TV historian Chuck Harter will return this week with a tribute to the life and legacy of Aretha Franklin, the legendary Queen of Soul.
