After six seasons on Grimm, the entire cast will be in the exciting, but perhaps daunting, new position of being free to choose new acting directions. Bitsie Tulloch, presently in the unique Grimm role of being trapped between her old and new self is about to do just that.
Bitsie Tulloch- Juliette/Eve on Grimm
Her character on Grimm, once, Nick-the-Grimm’s fiancé, has in final Seasons, played a robot-like Hexenbiest with ambiguous loyalties. Statuesque and lithe with unforgettable and luminous, big dark eyes, she has a special look that could take her on many paths in the entertainment world.
She has acquired an impressive fan base from her role as Juliette/Eve on Grimm and dedicates much of her time interacting and being grateful that this cult base for Grimm, at times, kept the show alive and returning each Season.
A San Diego native, Tulloch is also a bit of a brainster! Huffington Post tells us she graduated from Harvard with a double major in literature and fine arts. “She’s even begun pitching and producing in television- something that she would definitely love to continue.” She is engaged to Nick-the-Grimm co-star, David Giuntoli, and along with him, she just completed directing an episode of Grimm, and who knows where that will end? Will the two collaborate and bring some of the favourite Grimm “family” back in a new off-beat series? At least, it’s possible.
So what is Bitsie up to? Outside of planning her own wedding to David, she has a long list of upcoming films on her plate: Dead Draw, We Love You, Sally Carmichael, and Chronic- which was also selected for the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival! Looks like the star is up to plenty.
When the Huffington Post asked Bitsie about her time on the cult hit series, Grimm, she was grateful for her time on the show.
“I can’t believe we made it to 123 episodes. That rarely happens anymore and we have our fans to thank for their loyalty. The end of this has been really bittersweet. One of the reasons I think Grimm did so well was the chemistry among the cast- being on location in Portland for six years, we became a family. So it’s been hard the last two weeks since I wrapped, now that I really miss the crew and the cast. David and I are getting married soon, so we will always have an extra soft spot for Grimm because that’s when we fell in love.”
It’s a bittersweet wrap for all the cast but keep your eye out for all of the stars of Grimm: Claire Coffee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, Reggie Lee- they could show up at any time in upcoming drama series and films. Russel Hornsby (Hank) was recently seen in the “Fences” and David Guintoli starred in “13 Hours”. Who knows what’s next but one thing for sure Grimm was a wonderful and unique ride mixing fairy tales with mythology and monsters, sometimes serious and sometimes tongue-in-cheek. Portland, Oregon will never be the same.
Can Tulloch give us at least a little taste of what’s to come in the series? “Not really!” she admitted, “
We only have about 8 episodes left so who at this point wants spoilers?! All I can say is 607 is based on a Shakespeare comedy and SO FUN. And the final few episodes: watch with tissues nearby!”
Indeed we will, Bitsie.
Don’t miss the next episode of Grimm on NBC Friday night- at 8/7 central.
