Anna Gunn is the latest member of the cast of Gracepoint to profile her character in the show. In a new video clip released by Fox, Anna introduces Detective Ellie Miller.
Local detective Ellie Miller is a happily married mother of two who expects to be promoted on her return from vacation, only to discover that the position has gone to an outsider, Detective Emmett Carver (David Tennant). To make matters worse, she immediately has to start working with him when the body of her son's best friend is found on the local beach, a victim of murder. Ellie and Carver are very different and their professional relationship is not always easy
"One of the things that's fascinating is that it's about these two detectives that come at this tragedy and and this case in totally different ways," she explains
Such a violent crime is unheard of in the sleepy hamlet of Gracepoint, and even Ellie, with her police experience, finds it tough going, especially as she is close to the victim and his family.
"She's the rookie in this, this is her first murder case," Anna explains, "So while she is really good at her job and really smart..no-one can prepare for their very first murder case."
