Interview with Bitsie Tulloch

Bitsie Tulloch is playing the role of Juliette on NBC’s new series “Grimm”. Her character is the girlfriend of Nick, played by David Giuntoli. Media Mikes had a chance to chat with Bitsie about her role in the show and what we can expect from season one.

Mike Gencarelli: Tell us about your role of Juliette Silverton on “Grimm”?
Bitsie Tulloch: I play a veterinarian on the show that is dating lead detective Nick Burckhardt. One of the reasons I was attracted to the role is because of the six regulars on the show that role is not a cop or a monster. I am thinking that with my character being a vet I might be helpful with some of the creatures down the road. Right now they are enjoying coming up with creative ways Nick can lie to me. When I read the script the first time I was shocked at how dark the show is. I knew enough about the original stories to know that the stories were pretty gruesome. I thought the idea to add a crime procedural element to these stories was fantastic. The show is just really smart and how they are reinterpreting these classic stories is great.

MG: Tell us about working with such a great cast including David Giuntoli & Russell Hornsby?
BT: It’s great. I am the only woman on the show who is a series regular. It’s not hard getting out of the bed in the morning. (Laughs) They guys are all great and different from each other. I love it. They all are so sweet. I have never been on a show or movie where everyone is this close.

MG: What has been the most challenging part of working on the show so far?
BT: Having to move to Portland was my biggest challenge originally. Now I think it’s the least challenging as I love the city so much. It’s been pretty amazing shooting up here with the five guys. We all live within about four blocks from each other.

MG: How do you feel that the show stands out from the standard cop procedural?
BT: It’s not your standard cop procedural by any means. One of the things that I think is really cool about the show is the fans that I think will be drawn to this show are the best type of fans. I think there will be a lot of artistic, passionate people watching the show. The turnout at Comic-Con was amazing! There are about eight different genres blended together into this one show. Something like this has not been done before.

MG: Tell us about your film “Caroline and Jackie” with “Grimm” co-star David Giuntoli?
BT: That was a film I actually co-produced. It’s an indie drama about two sisters who relationship is unfolding. The film takes place over the course of one day. We had a period of about six months where David and I weren’t shooting together and when we got back together the chemistry was still there. David plays my boyfriend and his character is really great.
