In a special Emmy edition of the Water Cooler Podcast, Clarence talks to Timothy Hutton, star of Netflix’s smash hit horror series The Haunting of Hill House.
When Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House premiered last fall, it took the nation completely by surprise. Few were ready for the nerve-wrecking shocks and jump scares that populated much of the series. And there’s that eerie and gorgeous Gothic mansion. Plus, all those ghosts just hanging out in the background. It served as a beautifully rendered pre-Halloween treat for many brave souls. But even fewer were prepared for the raw and intense family drama on display. That dynamic served as one of many reasons Academy Award-winning star Timothy Hutton joined the production.
In another special Emmy contender edition of Awards Daily TV’s Water Cooler Podcast, Clarence talks to Timothy Hutton about what it’s like to win an Oscar at such an early age. How does an actor move beyond that? Then, in a conversation about The Haunting of Hill House, Hutton reveals his process in understanding his character Hugh Crain, one that he shares with Henry Thomas. He talks about how his performance references Thomas’s work in the early sections of the series.
Timothy Hutton also talks about his work in the season’s greatest episode “Two Storms,” which plays like a great horror stage play. One that is, of course, anchored by Hutton and his brilliant ensemble’s stellar performances.
So, have a listen as Clarence talks to The Haunting of Hill House‘s Timothy Hutton. Be sure to tune in for more Emmy-contender podcasts as we march forward into the 2019 Emmy season.
