Last Friday (September 30), Hayley stopped by the AOL HQ in New York City to attend the Build Speaker Series, discussing her new show, ‘Conviction‘. The first batch of pictures have been added to our gallery, we hope more will be added soon.
I’ve just added ten high-quality episode stills taken from the first episode of ‘Conviction‘, which will air in just 11 days on ABC, to our picture archive. Thank you Elle for sending these our way! Be sure to check back later as more are to be added in the days to come.
A brilliant young attorney, who is also the daughter of a former U.S. president, is blackmailed to head up LA’s new Conviction Integrity Unit. She and her team investigate cases where people may have been wrongly convicted.
Hayley and her Conviction co-star Eddie Cahill are featured on ‘The Wrap’ Fall Issue, thus revealing a new, really nice portrait, taken during last month’s Disney ABC Television Group TCA Summer Press Tour. Keep reading to check out part of her interview, but be sure to check out the full article here.
What makes this show special?
HAYLEY ATWELL: This is a fast-paced legal procedural, but at the center of it is a woman who is pretty blurry around the edges. She’s very close to pushing the self-destruct button. And because of the sheer delight she takes in the banter and the wordplay between herself and Connor Wallace, played by Eddie here, it makes her a quite captivating character, and a lot of fun to play.
Have you found yourself peeking ahead in the scripts to see where the show is going?
ATWELL: We can’t peek ahead. We get the scripts just before we start working on the episode. Which I think is quite thrilling. You don’t have time to analyze it — you just have to make a choice as an actor and then do it.
