PREACHER: Ruth Negga on bringing Tulip to life – Interview

When we meet Ruth Negga’s character, Tulip O’Hare, in the first episode of PREACHER, she is ecstatically winning a fight to the death in the front seat of a car, biting off part of a man’s face in the process. Later, Tulip enlivens two young children’s otherwise dull afternoon by giving the kids an exciting arts and crafts lesson in how to make an improvised rocket launcher. Clearly, Tulip is not a standard TV heroine. Then again, AMC’s PREACHER, Sundays at 9 PM, is not a standard good and evil show. Tulip’s former and perhaps future lover Jesse Custer (Dominic […]Read On »

In the (so-far) two-season history of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, ABC Tuesdays at 9 PM, just about all of the characters have gone through massive changes. Agent Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, has learned that he was actually brought back from the dead courtesy of alien technology; not only that, he’s been appointed Director of the whole S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, courtesy of secretly-alive former Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Chloe Bennet’s orphan computer hacker Skye has discovered she’s an Inhuman, with the ability to bring buildings down; she’s also found that her father Kal (Kyle MachLachlan) is alive and […]Read On »

When MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, based in the Marvel comics universe, debuted on ABC last year, we followed a team of agents led by Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) on a series of adventures. Then the feature film CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER was released on April 4, 2014. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agency was attacked from within by the group Hydra, whose operatives turned out to have been inside S.H.I.E.L.D. since its inception in World War II. In the very next episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD, our heroes had to deal with the […]Read On »
