‘Guilty Party’ star Jules Latimer at Kate Beckinsale: ‘She’s so beautiful’


Newcomer Jules Latimer said she was “stunned” by her first on-screen role in “Guilty Party” opposite Kate Beckinsale, partly because, “When I was young, I still didn’t tell her today.”

“In my first scene, I was doing a kind of audition [Beckinsale’s character] Beth, and she’s trying to find my case and find the right person to get my story in the news. “Latimer told The Post. And because it was Covid, I had never seen Kate without her mask. We met, but with masks. And I’m like, ‘Goddammit, she’s so cute – I have to look out!’ But she’s a fantastic actor to play.

The premiere on Thursday (Oct. 14) at Paramount +, the dark comedy series follows Beth (Beckinsale), a humiliated journalist who was fired after she was accused of falsifying the quote (which she denies). In her quest to save her career, she follows the case of a young mother, Tony (Latimer), who is accused of abusing and murdering her husband – crimes she claims to be innocent of.

The latest Juilliard grad, Latimer, based in Brooklyn, has appeared in a number of off-Broadway productions, including “Paris”, but “Guilty Party” marks its debut.

“I was reading some Octavia Butler,” he said. “I saw this documentary about people in New York’s prison doing the Bard College program. You are in prison, but you have all this idle time. What do you do with your time to nurture your creativity? That kind of nurtured my imagination for Tony, thinking about what she was reading or studying while she was in prison. “What I really want to do with Tony is give her humanity, humor, drive and passion. I want to make sure we give her a 360-like dimension.

In the show, Tony’s goal is to reunite with her daughter, who was away from her after she gave birth while in prison. Tony claims that her husband’s brother is the real culprit of the crime, and Beth is trapped in a world of darkness while investigating Tony’s claim.

“Every character has a certain rhythm to them,” Latimer said. “I think Tony has this ‘ious’ ‘I can take a left or right turn at any moment’ kind of thing. When you get to know her, you’re trying to keep her motive and whether she’s guilty or innocent, but everything’s in the making.” [of the show], So I definitely applied my musical background [from Juilliard]. “

He said working with a veteran actor allowed Latimer to learn the ropes quickly.

“I see all these people standing up [Kate Beckinsale] Practice and block the scene. I was like, ‘That’s so much, how do you stay focused? And she said, ‘There’s a lot going on around you, but it’s important to stay focused and mine your energy.’ So, she is a great mentor to me. I’ve always wanted to work with Kate. I went to Blockbuster to rent ‘Underworld’ movies with my brother.

“My brother is my best friend, and he says, ‘I think you got a job – but I think it’s cool that you work with Kate Beckinsale.’
