Happy Birthday: Connie Britton

Born: March 6, 1967 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA

In terms of American Horror Story (2011) and Nashville (2012), what attracted me to those, and Friday Night Lights (2006), for that matter, is that they felt like something innovative and something that we hadn’t seen before. As an actor, that’s exciting.

I’m in an environment where I have a lot of information about how to stay healthy and live a good life. I love vegan and raw food, I love to exercise. If I weren’t in this business, I think I would be aging differently.

I would say country is the one type of music I’ve spent the least amount of time with in my life. I grew up in Virginia, where there was a lot of it, but I was more interested in rock and roll. Southern rock.

I was born in Boston, but then I went down to Virginia. We spent a little time in Maryland, and then were in Virginia by the time I was seven. What struck me the most was that my mother thought that she had gone to the middle of nowhere, and we would still drive four hours for her to get her hair cut in Washington, D.C.

We’re trying to tell a very full story of Nashville (2012)’ and these characters in Nashville, and I’m really hopeful that we’re going to be able to do something as innovative as American Horror Story (2011) and Friday Night Lights (2006). And I think so far, we’re on the right path for that.
