Rhea Seehorn Opens Up About Her Character & Its Reprise

As per one of the before SAG-AFTRA strikes interviews with The Hollywood Reporter, Seehorn, when asked about what is that she took from the role, talked about the learning she received through her character. She even explained the reasons for being open to reprising her role in the future. She said:

“I don’t think that I will ever forget her. I hope one day there’s an occasion to revisit these characters. Getting to play one character over the course of seven years, and the massive allowance of evolving and subtext and growth that they allowed us to play — she feels very three-dimensional as a human to me. There are parts of her that, as an actor and as a human, I am still trying to learn from, but I’m not fully successful.”

Only time can tell if the spinoff lives up like the original series, but Better Call Saul and the spinoff movie titled El Camino release did defy the odds. They were as compelling as Breaking Bad and brought in perfect endings for characters. However, it did leave an open door for more stories revolving around characters like Mike Ehrmantraut.

Further, the Better Call Saul series finale felt like a rewarding episode for the complete Breaking Bad universe. Here, the major characters were explored in a thorough manner, and they received perfect conclusions too. There’s an intriguing possibility left for the spinoff on young Gus Fring. However, the series wouldn’t be worth exploring without the presence of Giancarlo Esposito.
