Interview with Lee Jones of "The
Bastard Executioner" on
I was part of the conference call that actor Lee Jones
did with the press on this date. However, FX no longer sends
us transcripts of these calls, and I forgot to dial in to
listen to the recording that they provide. Apparently they
only leave it up for us for 24 hours (which kind of sucks).
I completely forgot about this interview!
I'm asking around to see if anyone else has it. In the
meantime, here are some links to other people who were on
the call, and their versions of the interview. Unlike me,
most of them don't just put up the transcripts, apparently.
Honestly, I'm not 100% sure what I asked him! I do a lot
of these calls. I may have asked him the question
about how he prepared physically for the role, or I may have
asked him why he took the role (or both). It was
great to speak with him, though. He seems like a very nice
guy. He's very talented. The show is really good
(although too violent for me).

best transcription of all of the links here.)

We’re pleased to announce that we have
officially booked a Q&A conference call with THE
BASTARD EXECUTIONER star Lee
Jones (“Wilkin Brattle”) on Wednesday, September 9
at 2:30 pm PT /
5:30 pm ET (and
10:30 pm GMT!).
Lee Jones plays “Wilkin Brattle.” A
former warrior knight broken by the ravages of war, Wilkin
vows to lay down his sword for a simple agrarian life. But
when his idyllic new world is shattered by a cruel English
Lord, Wilkin is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of
all: that of an executioner.
Actor Lee Jones was first recognized
as an emerging talent when he appeared as “The Creature” in
Nick Dear’s Frankenstein. Jones’ performance
garnered critical acclaim, a prestigious Glug Award for best
actor and a Sydney Theatre Critics Nomination. A Graduate
of the University of Western Sydney’s Theatre Nepean, Jones
has worked at such acclaimed theatres as Sydney Theatre
Company, The Ensemble Theatre, and the Old Fitzroy. He has
quickly established himself as an artist renowned for his
versatility and ability to bring great depth to any role he
plays. Born and raised in Sydney, Jones now splits his time
between Sydney and Los Angeles.
Executioner is a medieval epic that tells the story of
Wilkin Brattle, a 14th century warrior, whose
life is forever changed when a divine messenger beseeches
him to lay down his sword and lead the life of another man:
a journeyman executioner. Set in northern Wales during a
time rife with rebellion and political upheaval, Wilkin must
walk a tight rope between protecting his true identity while
also serving a mysterious destiny.
Guided by Annora (Katey Sagal), a
mystical healer whose seeming omniscience keeps Wilkin under
her sway; manipulated by Milus Corbett (Stephen Moyer), a
devious Chamberlain with grand political aspirations, and
driven by a deepening connection with the Baroness Lady Love
(Flora Spencer-Longhurst); Wilkin struggles to navigate
political, emotional and supernal pitfalls in his quest to
understand his greater purpose.
