Joy on Dexter?
« on: May 30, 2013, 01:13:07 PM »
does anyone know when her episodes are suppose to air? I like that she is doing a risky show like Dexter, just hope she doesn't have any nude scenes.

I think her first episode will be episode 4, so probably around the end of July. They usually limit spoilers but some random commenter on the Dexter Daily Blog said he heard she would have a nude scene (http://www.dexterdaily.com/2013/04/dexter-season-8-new-set-photo-first.html?spref=tw). It could very well be a troll though. This blog is excellent but a lot of the people in the comments section are creepy "Debster" stans so I wouldn't trust what is written in there.

It is a risque show but I definitely think this is a great opportunity for her to stretch those acting muscles. Usually the nudity on this show is done tastefully and not in an overly gratuitous manner, and it doesn't take away from the writing of the show. Those scenes on this show don't phase me at all.

I actually believe it's risky, but Joy is such a great actres she will do it amazingly.

I really don't understand why it'd be a big deal if Joy does a nude scene. It's not porn, it's clearly an adult show on an adult network. (And I don't mean adult in THAT way.) She's not stripping on OTH. Dexter is not a family friendly show. I'd hope she's at a point in life/her career where she doesn't feel pressured to show skin if she doesn't want to and if she does, it's because it's her voluntary creative choice.

Basically, BFD.

^Exactly. And the show is really well written so it shouldn't really matter. I'm more interested in what role her character plays in defining Dexter's so-called "legacy" that they keep pushing in the promos.

And hey, Joy is pretty attractive (and so is the guy playing her boyfriend) so I don't think some T&A action or some sexy scenes will exactly hurt lol. Lots of actors do nudity and it's really not a big deal.

About the supposed nude scene, I don't mind either way. She's an actress and it's part of her job. She's a complete professional so I don't think it's a big deal to her. Although, it's gonna feel weird watching that scene because when I see Joy on other shows, I just think of Haley :) Lol. So, when I watch that scene, it'll be like Haley with someone else :/ HAHA! And, that is gonna do a number on my Naley heart :/ Lol. We've seen Joy do love scenes with James for so long and idk...it'll def be weird seeing her do love scenes with someone else. I'm not one of those fans who think Joy and James should be a couple in real life so that's not what I mean when I say I only want Joy to do love scenes with James. I only want that because of Naley :) Lol

May I ask what you mean by "risky show"?

Like most here, I don't get the big deal with nude scenes. It's not a porno. It's an adult show, on an adult network and if you are not comfortable with that, you most likely shouldn't watch. Furthermore, Joy is an actress and while she did play Haley for 9 years, I think people need to allow her the option of moving on from that role. Obviously that is what Joy wants, too.

I think we have risky show confused with risqué show, which Dexter could be considered.

Because of its mature content, yes, it could potentially be considered risque. LOL but it's not definitely not risky lol. If anything, this is a good career opportunity for her.

^That's what I was thinking too, especially if Joy was approached about the show. That's a compliment if you ask me.

I started watching Dexter from the beginning about a month ago, and I am now at the middle of 4th season. The show is great, I haven't been hooked on a show since OTH, I always lose interest after a few episodes, but I really like Dexter. The characters are great and the story lines too.
I can't wait for the last season and Joy's character. I'm interested what her character is going to be and how many episodes she will be in.
As for the nude scenes, if she has one - they are always made tasteful on Dexter, so I don't think it's going to be something bad for Joy, even though I can't imagine her (half) naked, but we'll have to see, if it's even true. :)

Joy also mentioned wanting to do Game of Thrones, which has even more nudity than Dexter lol. At the end of the day, if she chooses to do a nude scene, it's her choice and it should be respected. Some of the most well-respected actors in the business have done nudity and they're not any less respected or admired because of it.

I'm more interested in hearing how many episodes she will be on for. And I hope she does an interview closer to the airing of her episodes to give some more info about her character. The only thing we know at this point lol is that her character is a free-spirit and bohemian-ish.

Didn't someone say 5 episodes? That's what I heard but it could be wrong. I hope Joy has more than 5 episodes :)

Aww, only 5? That will be a short arc then. Boo! I wish we had something lined up for after Dexter. (Hehehe, I say we like we're auditioning with Joy!)

Where did you hear about the five episodes? But it sounds about right though. Joy didn't really go into too much detail when she did that interview at the Zooey event but I do remember her saying that she would be there "for a little while" which I took to mean to be about a handful of episodes. I think Charlotte Rampling's character, Dr. Evelyn Vogel, is the only one that will be on for most of the season. But Dexter's seasons are only about 12 episodes so even if she's on for 5, that's like half the season.

I'm really happy she's trying out different tv shows, and different genres at that, but I think it would kind of nice for her to maybe even try for a small, independent movie. The last movie I think she did was BIOA and it was...not good to say the least lol. I don't know, like maybe a cute rom com?
