It’s interesting to see Vera Farmiga’s career blossom in Hollywood. I first saw her on the crime TV show “UC: Undercover” co-starring alongside Jon Seda, who has since gone to star in HBO’s “The Pacific”. She parlayed that into another fantastic TV crime show, the American remake of “Touching Evil” with current “Burn Notice” star Jeffrey Donovan. But like “Undercover”, the American public didn’t appreciate “Evil”, and it was canceled after only one year. Since then, Farmiga has carved out a fantastic career on the big screen in big-budget Hollywood actioners like “The Departed” and “Running Scared”, as well as low-budget indies you’ve never heard of like “Never Forever” and “Quid Pro Quo”.
Her latest is the indie Western “A Thousand Guns”, where she’ll play the wife of a preacher who goes on a journey of revenge. The movie will be directed by Spaniard Daniel Calparsoro and written by Russell Friedenberg. It sounds like an action movie, but with Farmiga, you never can really tell. One thing’s for sure, though, it’s definitely keeping an eye on.
