Titus Welliver Q&A: ‘Bosch’
“This season, we really kind of took Harry Bosch down to the studs,” divulges Titus Welliver during our recent webcam chat (watch the exclusive video above) about his show “Bosch.” “He has sort of taken some steps on his own, and it’s somewhat compromised his moral compass a bit.” Based on the popular book series by Michael Connelly, this Amazon original stars Welliver as LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch, who’s under suspicion after a serial killer he’s been pursuing turns up dead. The ensemble cast includes Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino, and Lance Reddick.
Exploring Bosch’s dark side, “made for some really interesting stuff to play,” considering that, “here’s a guy who has, for lack of a better word, a flawless moral compass.” In his pursuit of the killer, Bosch makes many dubious decisions, including wiretapping his house. Although, “it’s in the service of right in the long run,” it nevertheless, “places him at odds with himself and all of the people around him.”
Welliver received a SAG Ensemble nomination for “Deadwood” in 2007. He has featured prominently on the small screen in such shows as “Lost,” “The Good Wife,” “NYPD Blue,” and “Sons of Anarchy,” as well as on the big screen with films like “Argo,” “Promised Land,” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction.” Check out our full interview above for more about his work in “Bosch.”
