Interview: â€˜Franklin & Bashâ€™ star Garcelle Beauvais talks â€˜The Talk,â€™ Kelly Ripa
As Hanna Linden on TNT's "Franklin &Â Bash" (the first season finale airs this Wed. at 9 p.m.),Â former model Garcelle Beauvais is all the things a defendant could want in a lawyer.Â She's tough, smart and nearly unbeatable in court. Off screen, Beauvais life is a little more complicated. Mom to twin sons Jax and Jaid, the Haitian-born former "NYPDÂ Blue" star last year became a heroine to many when she called out her allegedly cheating husband via an e-mail (which later reached the media). These days, the newly single Beauvais is focused on her new job, parenting and pursuing yet another goal -- producing.Â
The series just got picked up for a second season.Â Will we finally find out what's going on withÂ Hanna?
Iâ€™m looking forward to the writers developing my character more so that we seeÂ some of her background and more of where she comes from. For me, my background work for her was that she was a daddyâ€™s girl and always wanted to please him, and therefore she became one of the guys. Thatâ€™s whatâ€™s so cool about her character; she doesnâ€™t apologize for being smart, for being sexy, for being strong. She says, "This is who I am, take it or leave it."Â
Do you suffer from the age-old plague of mommy guilt?
Now that you're single again, any chance you're dating?Â When you're not at Target?
It's been a year since the earthquakes in Haiti, but it seems to have dropped off the media's radar. Is that frustrating to you?
I understand, though. Japan happened, and it's understandable that people move on with so much happening in the world. I hope people don't forget, but it's natural. I'm going back toÂ Haiti to get an assessment of what's needed, so I can then come back and get involved again with helping and doing what needs to be done. IÂ haven't been back since the earthquake, so I just want to see it. Haiti is actually really beautiful, and the beaches are better than any high profile place you could go for vacation. But the country never got a chance to become a tourist destination because of the political situation. Hopefully, things will change.
