Join our live chat with Diane Kruger (‘The Bridge’) this Thursday

On Thursday, we’ll talk with Diane Kruger about her role as Texas detective Sonya Cross in the FX drama “The Bridge,” which returns for its second season on July 9. Join us for our live chat on May 29, at 12:15pm PT/3:15pm ET on Gold Derby’s home page.

Here’s an exclusive sneak peek at the FX 2014 Emmy campaign

Kruger’s Detective Cross is unique among TV cops: she suffers from Asperger syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder that makes it difficult for her to relate to others, particularly Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir), a Mexican detective with whom she partners to solve a series of murders on both sides of the border.

Until now, the German-born Kruger has worked mostly on the big screen, in films including “Troy,” “National Treasure,” and the Oscar-nominated French drama “Joyeux Noel,” but she is probably best known as Bridget von Hammersmark in Quentin Tarantino‘s “Inglourious Basterds,” for which she earned a SAG nomination for Best Supporting Actress and a win for Best Motion Picture Ensemble.
