In an exclusive interview with Digital Spy, the actress shared that her schedule is a bit complicated at the moment.
“But we’ll see. I love Jerrie, and I love Big Sky. There’s definitely some story to tell there. But I’m excited to be in the Queer as Folk cinematic universe, and to tell some stories that I’m really excited to tell,” the actress shared.
Jesse’s Journey in Queer As Folk
The actress described her role in Queer as Folk as “groundbreaking.” Her alter ego, Ruthie, “makes a lot of mistakes” because she’s “allowed to be messy.” She has a unique and complicated relationship with Brodie.
“There are some really beautiful, powerful, intimate scenes on the show that I don’t know if audiences are prepared for. I think it’s cool, getting to just be a trans woman who’s treated like any other character would be,” the actress revealed.
In the show, Ruthie is permitted to make mistakes so she can learn and grow from them. This isn’t how other trans characters are portrayed on TV. Keitel said that these characters are often “put on a pedestal,” given an “angelic treatment,” and “can do no wrong.” Her character is someone that goes through struggles as an adult, just like people in real life, whether they’re queer or not.
