Christian Coulson Joins ‘Nashville’ Cast
Welcome to Nashville, Christian Coulson! The actor has joined the cast of the TV drama for Season 5.
Deadline reports that Coulson will play Damien George, a "confident and, by turns, charming and caustic," in-demand British director; George will be in charge of Gunnar Scott (Sam Palladio) and Scarlett O'Connor (Clare Bowen)'s first music video.
"He has a specific vision for his work," the character description continues, "and gets off on pushing the limits of actors to achieve that vision."
Harry Potter fans will recognize Coulson: He portrayed Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. His other credits include Nurse Jackie and The Good Wife, among others.
Coulson will be one of a number of new faces in the Nashville cast when the show's fifth season premieres on Jan 5; the two-hour premiere will air beginning at 9PM ET. CMT picked up the show for a fifth season in early June, following ABC’s cancellation of Nashville in mid-May, and thanks in part to fan demand.
