Meet the beautiful Belle Shouse! You probably know her from, A Million Ways to Die in the West, and she just starred alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones in Queen America. If you haven not seen the show yet, grab some popcorn and great ready to laugh hysterically!
We got a chance to meet up with Belle at her photo shoot in the Hollywood Hills, and ask her some of our exclusive questions!
Tell us about your show Queen America, and your character Samantha?
I play Samantha Cole, Sam grew up in extreme poverty in Claremore, Oklahoma in a family that takes her for granted. She gets written off as a “pretty girl from the sticks,” but she has an inherent emotional intelligence. Despite her lack of finesse, her endearing authenticity makes her stand out among the other pageant contestants. She sees pageants as her only way out of her current lifestyle in hopes of a scholarship being the potential outcome to open the doors to better opportunities. She teams up with the ruthless pageant coach Vicki Ellis, played by Catherine Zeta Jones, who, with a whole lot of work, must try and mold the hapless Samantha into the perfect pageant queen.
What was it like working with Zeta Jones?
Catherine has been so sweet to me. She unknowingly has taught me many lessons. Being able to observe her on and off set I’ve learned so much that I will use toward my career and life. I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside such a well respected actress.
