The Punisher debuts on Netflix later this week and there is certainly a lot of excitement around the characters of Frank and Karen.
Harper’s Bazaar sat down with actress Deborah Ann Woll to talk a little bit about the chemistry that exists between her character and Jon Bernthal’s:
“Jon’s such a remarkable person, and I very much fell in love with him as a performer working on that second season, so when they asked me to come in and do Punisher I didn’t even miss a beat before saying yes. Our processes are similar—I think we both take the work very seriously and we both like to maintain our connection to the material throughout the day. It doesn’t mean we don’t joke around, but we’re not goofing off up until action. It’s a committed connection to the material, and not everyone is like that. Sometimes when I work that way people roll their eyes at me, and Jon didn’t. He was excited by it, so that meant a lot to me.”
Woll continued by expressing her feelings about the possibility of a romance between Frank and Karen:
“Jon and I certainly feel that there’s room within that story to go there. But I also think as a woman, not every relationship with a man in the story has to be romantic. Frank’s whole plot line is about avenging the murders of his wife and children, who he loved desperately, and until he comes to some closure with that, I don’t know that Karen can really step on those toes. I do think that there’s affection and longing between them, and just how that manifests, we’ll just have to see.”
They concluded by discussing how Karen is certainly not a damsel in distress but does get involved in trouble from time to time:
“The best and most wonderful quality of Karen is her curiosity. She’s like a dog with a bone, for better or worse—obviously for better, she’s trying to take down people who are taking advantage, but for worse, it puts her in bad situations. But as long as I’m doing it to myself, as long as I’m not being kidnapped because I know Matt Murdock, but because I went after something, then that’s okay. That’s agency.”
After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal, Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, Deborah Ann Woll, Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jaime Ray Newman, and Michael Nathanson.
The Punisher will debut on Netflix on November 17, 2017.
