RIDE TO SUCCESS
Taylor Kitsch is an actor in demand and one who is not afraid of the challenge of reprising a role with his own style and performance
Taylor Kitsch stole hearts in cult TV series Friday Night Lights but his ride to Hollywood success wasn’t an easy one. As he switches gears to play a motorcycle cop alongside Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn in True Detective, he talks about his transition from jobless actor to man-indemand.
It was a challenge. But season one is definitely its own entity and I think it really set a precedent because the material is so good. In season two the material dictates the tone and our job was really to be honest to those characters.
I’m not really worried about how people are going to take season two. I’m doing what’s expected of me and I’m not going to waste energy on other people’s perceptions. It’s up to me to empower the character and breathe life into him and because the material is as good as it is, it enabled me to really dive into it.
