Connie Britton Takes the Plunge For 'Austin Way'

Connie Britton shows some cleavage on the cover of Austin Way‘s latest issue, which is out on newsstands now!

On growing as an actress: “Friday Night Lights was such a perfect and complete experience, so after that, I did go through a little bit of a crisis. I thought, ‘What am I going to do now? How am I going to top that?’ And the answer was that whatever I did next, I wanted it to feel challenging, like I was stepping out of my comfort zone. American Horror Story, which I did in between FNL and Nashville, did that for me because it was such a different genre. When Nashville came along, I thought, I’m going to be stretching some new muscles; here we go. It’s scary to do that, and it’s been challenging and rewarding- that’s what happens when you take risks.”

On what she misses most about Austin: “Everything. I love Austin. I’m a huge Austin fan. I love that there’s music everywhere, and it’s so laid-back, nonchalant, and creative. It’s a great community. It feels very inclusive. The food is great… I could go on. [Laughs] I get back here whenever I can- [especially] for music festivals.”

On what’s next for her: “It takes 10 months out of the year to shoot Nashville, so I only have a couple of free months over the summer. I have been creating and producing a show [for Showtime Networks] that I’m hoping to do as my next project. I’m also a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations. Since I majored in Chinese in college and studies in China for a while, people would say, ‘What are you doing with that? Are you going to be an ambassador?’ [Laughs] So in many ways, it’s a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to parlay the work I’m doing into something that can be useful on a larger scale.”
