TV's Top 10: New Faces for Fall - Georgia King
Allison Adler are no strangers to provocation. Their work on “Glee” has sparked as many discussions as it’s sold albums. King relishes the opportunity to do not only an American comedy show, but one from such established writers who aren’t afraid to tackle delicate issues. King’s career started on a completely different foot, however. She appeared in a string of very serious period dramas. “I look great in a bonnet,” she says laughing. Her first film role was “Wild Child,” in which she played the “crazy, harsh, visceral and mental” head of a boarding school who winds up burning it down. It was unlike anything she had ever done, and from that point was bitten by the comedy bug. For “The New Normal” — a blend of King’s comic desires and fragile drama — Murphy actually wrote the part of Goldie for someone else. However, “I brought some vulnerability to the role he hadn’t seen in anyone else,” she says.
