Hayden Panettiere Likes On Screen Rivalry

Rivalry is a word that gets used a lot when referring to the two main characters, Juliette, played by Hayden Panettiere, and Rayna, played by Connie Britton, on ABC’s hit drama Nashville, but Hayden thinks their characters go so far beyond a rivalry. “Rivalry will only be interesting for so long and I mean there obviously is a hint of it but when I think of rivalry I think of people competing with each other and they’re so different that you need and want both of them in their different ways.” One thing that has been interesting for Hayden as an actress is getting to know her co-star better and getting more comfortable. “We’ve talked about how the more we get to know each other the more interesting it becomes and the more fun we get to have with it and the more… just gutsy we get to be with it,” she explains. “Because in the beginning you really don’t know how somebody is going to react to it. It doesn’t just start when you yell “action” and end when they yell “cut”. The lines kind of bleed sometimes.” Hayden and Connie both laugh that sometimes the acting can get a bit catty or vicious and they end up apologizing to each other after the director yells cut.

    I love that Hayden and Connie are building a relationship and making their scenes together more dynamic. I already love the show, but that makes it even better. I can rarely catch Nashville live because I work late at DISH on Wednesdays, but I watch it on my DVR. I have the DISH Hopper, which is set to auto-record Nashville and the other big four prime time network shows using Primetime Anytime, so I never have to worry about missing an episode because of work. I’m looking forward to seeing how the characters on the show continue developing as Hayden and Connie get to know each other, too.
