Jeremy Strong remains, as always, with Kendall’s team. But the actor said triumph isn’t always good for the recovering addict, who we’ve seen “fight and fail” over the past two seasons.
“Now he’s in a place where he’s done the thing he’s never been able to do and found the courage to do it. And there’s that hope that I think we all have as a people, that if we do certain things or do certain things, it will fill a void in us and make us full, ”Strong said.[But] when this stuff fills that void, you’re even more fucked up than before. “
He continued, “It’s class five whitewater rapids for Kendall. I think once again he feels ready to get what he wants and again, in a very ingenious way the from the writer, it is thwarted and overturned. “
In fact, that was Kendall’s fate from the conception of the series. Strong recalled visiting the writer’s bedroom a few years ago and seeing a note that said, “Kendall wins but loses.”
“And we basically see that dynamic play out through all the seasons, really. And it’s different every time and it goes deeper every time,” the actor explained.
