Long before Zooey Deschanel brought New Girl’s critically adored Jessica Day to life, Anna Friel was a ray of sunshine as Charlotte “Chuck” Charles on Bryan Fuller’s Pushing Daisies, the colorful, but short-lived ABC series that was surprisingly upbeat for a story about death. Chuck, who was brought back to life by her childhood sweetheart Ned (Lee Pace), really was the original adorkably beautiful brunette.

But now, Friel will bring a very different character to life on NBC’s Odyssey, a gritty drama in which a U.S. soldier Odelle Ballard (Friel) uncovers a computer file that suggests a U.S. corporation is funding Jihadists, which leads to her entire unit being wiped out as she attempts to make the conspiracy public.

“This is a bit of a jump from that, isn’t it?” Friel told EW at the Television Critics Association’s winter TV previews. “What you want as an actress is to mix it up as much as you can so you can’t be pigeon-holed. That’s the only way of survival and longevity. Pushing Daisies was such an incredible character. I was so lucky. I was offered so many pilots after that, but it was such a hard one to follow. It’s really funny because now with the success of The Hobbit with Lee, it’s having a new audience again. People who never saw [Pushing Daisies] are getting to see it again.”

Though Friel really has to get her hands dirty on Odyssey, the actress noted that it’s almost easier than her role on Pushing Daisies. “Every single character has its own task,” she said. “With Chuck, she was always happy. She was never not allowed to smile. You couldn’t use anything if you did feel a little grumpy or you were a bit tired in the morning, so that had its own challenges. This couldn’t be more at the other end of the scale. Odelle is completely different. Odelle is a mother, Chuck isn’t. Pushing Daisies was, in essence, a love story. Odelle is a soldier. I don’t think her spirit is as bright. She’s a very, very, very strong woman.”

Watch Friel return to television when Odyssey premieres April 5 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

1995 to 1999 Public Appearances

I finally managed some time to work on add more content to the site, and this time I’ve uploaded past public appearance pictures Anna did between 1995 and 1999. More dates are being sorted, to be added later today.

Syfy’s fall programming scedule was announced yesterday and it included details of its co-production with Sky TV, Neverland, an original prequel to author J.M. Barrie’s classic tale, Peter Pan. The Brit-packed, star studded cast features Rhys Ifans as James Hook, Keira Knightley as The Voice of Tinker Bell, Anna Friel as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins as Smee, and Charlie Rowe as the boy who refused to grow up, Peter Pan.

The 4-Hour movie event will arrive on our TV screens this December in two parts. Part one will air Sunday, December 4 at 9PM with part two on the following evening, December 5 at 9PM (ET/PT). The fantasy adventure will tell the never-before-told story of how Peter Pan became the Boy Who never grew up. Set at the turn of the century the story follow an orphaned Peter as he survives as a young pickpocket on the streets on London. It is here that he is rounded up by Jimmy Hook to steal a priceless and magical treasure which transports them to another world.

As promised, here the final episodes screen captures of “Pushing Daisies” season 01. Now I have the 13 episodes of season 02, but also the whole appearance galleries to catch up, so maybe it will take a week until you see new PD updates here.
