What did Vivian Olyphant say about working with her father on Justified: City Primeval?
In an interview with The Hollywood ReporterOlyphant was asked how she works with her father and if she fights with him in the same way that her character Willa fights his character Raylan.
“Well, there was actually a time on set where I was watching him shoot a scene where he had to fire a gun. And then this little trick happened and I was like, “That’s pretty cool.” So there were times when I was like, “That’s really cool,” and I’ve never seen my dad that cool before… I do fight with my dad, but not as much as Willa and Raylan. Willa often tries to get her father’s attention, so she does things that are kind of rebellious to get his attention. But I know my dad loves me, so I don’t have to do anything to get his attention.”
Reasoning: City Primeval co-wrote and executive produced with Dave Andron, Michael Dinner, Taylor Elmore and Chris Provenzano, with Andron and Dinner serving as showrunners.

“It begins with Givens, eight years after he left Kentucky,” reads the series synopsis. “He now resides in Miami, a walking anachronism that balances his life as a US Marshal and part-time father of a 14-year-old girl. His hair is grayer, his hat is dirtier, and the road in front of him is suddenly much shorter than the road behind him. A chance encounter on a deserted Florida highway leads him to Detroit.
There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, also known as The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who has slipped through the fingers of Detroit’s elite once before and intends to do so again. Mansell’s attorney, the formidable Motor City native Carolyn Wilder, has every intention of representing her client even as she finds herself caught between a cop and a criminal, and with her own game at play.”
