Season 1 of The Sinner received critical acclaim when it premiered in 2017 and anticipation for Season 2 has been high amongst fans of the television show. Bill Pullman, who a lot of you will know from films such as Independence Day, Caspar and Spaceballs, has a starring role in the TV show as Detective Harry Ambrose. In an interview with Variety, he was able to speak about various aspects of The Sinner and its second season.
Here is what Bill Pullman had to say about how his character changes as Season 2 of The Sinner progresses:
“He’s definitely attempting to live his life standing on the rails, which you kind of see from the first episode. He’s found some boundaries, and he’s remaining more insulated. But the nature of going to stay at his friend’s house, which means sharing bathrooms, and all of [those] things and appearing kind of wanting to be a normal person means that acting out of all of that, putting on the face of all of that, is really what he’s trying to do, but it doesn’t really work that well. … Something happens to him where you don’t really know the full extent of what happened to him up until the very end.”
“All of that is still down the pike for him. The first three are [him] in a way living in denial. All the pressures of who he is and the naming of what happened, the sense of being around this environment…he’s walking the same walks that he did as a young boy. So [how] those things are starting to pop into his consciousness are happening more and more.”
Bill Pullman also discusses the challenges he faced as an actor this season:
“In some ways the challenge of trying to evolve with this person. Vera represents a very specific challenge in trying to uncover what happened to the boy and what caused him to poison and be charged with murder. But at the same time they have this kind of level of intimacy, too. And I think that’s been kind of challenging in that it’s a dual purpose in terms of how much to reveal to each other and how much to trust each other has made some of those scenes particularly challenging.”
