Jesse Custer in Preacher How did you ap­proach play­ing Jesse?

I just needed to truly be­lieve this man’s ori­gin, his back­ground, where he comes from. That was work for me, just in terms of the na­ture of where he comes from. He’s a man from ru­ral Texas, he’s gone back to a very small town. But at some point you say to your­self, “There has to be some part of me that is true to him.”

How would you de­scribe Jesse’s re­la­tion­ship with Ir­ish vam­pire Cas­sidy?

They’re good friends. But they dis­agree so hugely on the idea of life, and these dis­cus­sions keep com­ing up; and they re­veal a lot about who they are. They’re try­ing to re­deem them­selves by do­ing some­thing bet­ter… Joe Gil­gun and I go into a room and the place where it starts is very dif­fer­ent from the place where it ends up.

Was it hard to get the ac­cent right?

It’s very easy to make a car­i­ca­ture of the ac­cent. You start go­ing into some deep south­ern drawl. It was al­ways about pulling it back. With ac­cents it’s al­ways about do­ing less. I did a much heav­ier Texan at first, and it be­came lighter… I think there should be sub­ti­tles for Cas­sidy! Joseph McCabe
