Gracepoint’s (FOX, Thursdays, 9/8C) Anna Gunn, who won a couple Emmys for her turn as Skylar White on Breaking Bad, stars as Detective Ellie Miller, one of the detectives investigating the murder of a twelve-year old boy in the coastal town of Gracepoint. Not only is she investigating a horrific crime, she is doing so with the man who took the job she was promised. On top of that, she is a wife and mother to the dead boy’s best friend.
On October 16th, Gunn took part in a conference call Q&A to talk about Ellie Miller and Gracepoint. She talkedabout, among other things, how her character changes over the course of the ten-episode mystery; how she approached the role, and how she chooses projects.
David Tennant may be best known for being the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who, but he’s about to hit the mainstream in Fox’s Gracepoint (Thursdays, 9/8C) – an adaptation of the acclaimed BBC drama Broadchurch (in which he also starred). Tennant plays Detective Emmett Carver who, along with Detective Ellie Miller (played by Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn) investigates the murder of a young boy in the small coastal town of Gracepoint.

Gunn takes on the role of Detective Ellie Miller, who misses out on a promised promotion but is soon involved in investigating a terrible tragedy with a prickly new partner.
