MR MERCEDES @ SDCC 2017: Kelly Lynch on playing a tortured character with a troubled son

In San Diego at Comic Con International this year, we had the chance to sit at a small round table with our friends from TheTVaholic, NoReruns, and ShowbizJunkies to talk all things MR MERCEDES with the cast and creative team.

The show, which premieres on AT&T’s Audience Network on DirecTV tonight (Aug 9) at 8/7c, is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, about a serial killer named Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) and the retired detective who can’t quite quit the case (Brendan Gleeson, incredible, as always).

Kelly Lynch gave some insight on bringing this very tortured character to life – she’s playing Brady’s mama (and they have QUITE the relationship) and the dark role could have taken a toll on someone for sure!  She also gave us some insight into getting feedback from Stephen King on her role!
