 Lee Jones of "The Bastard Executioner" on FX

Interview with Lee Jones of "The Bastard Executioner" on FX 9/9/15

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).

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.

“Wilkin Brattle”

 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.


The Bastard 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.
