Peri Gilpin continues to have a wonderful career in with a possible Emmy nomination for Old Guy on as Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series, it proves that she is still a talent worth recognizing.
Intitially, Old Guy was shot filmed in 2013 by the five Burton sisters, as a project for their father, Roger Burton. The elder Burton had always had a passion for acting but gave it up for a stable career. After retiring from his, “real job,” Mr. Burton decided to give acting another go, but this time the only roles he was getting were of dead bodies and men with bladder issues.
Enter Gilpin, who plays the roll of the lovably brash agent, Winnie that seeks to earn her commission check instead of giving a darn about the roles that Harry (Burton) gets so long as the money is keeps coming in.
We spoke with Gilpin about her career, working with Mr. Burton and his five, brilliant daughters, one being Jennifer Burton, a Harvard graduate and Tufts University professor, as well what it means to have a project that was 7 years in the can to finally get recognized and appreciated by a larger audience.
