Rhea Seehorn, Kim Wexler’s interpreter, was the big revelation of Better Call Saul. Every time we watched an episode of the spin-off of Breaking Bad we wondered where such a good actress had been hiding all this time. The great success of Better Call Saul it is certainly due to the excellent script that bears the signature of Vince Gilligan, but also to the talent of the main performers. And so it’s no wonder that, now that the series is over, countless doors have flung open before Rhea Seehorn and Bob Odenkirk. The actors are finally reaping the fruit of their labor and getting their due credit. Among the new projects of the interpreter of Kim Wexler there is a new series that Vince Gilligan has written especially for her.
Rhea Seehorn recently finally revealed some details about this mysterious TV series.
Rhea Seehorn was interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter to publicize the drama of Colin West titled Linoleum. During the chat with the reporter Brian Davids, naturally ended up talking about the drama series, which Vince Gilligan is developing for Apple TV +, in which he will star. Rhea Seehorn revealed how he knew the creator of Better Call Saul he had decided to give her another great opportunity. When she had finished filming the series, she called Vince Gilligan to thank him for the support he had given her on set. She also told him that she would be delighted to work with him again in the future it was at that moment that Gilligan said he already had something in mind for her. Here’s what she said:
“We were just wrapping up Better Call Saul and I hadn’t been able to say goodbye in person, as the writers and directors had already left the set. And so I was basically letting that group of writers and producers and directors know that wherever they went, I wanted to be. “Just tell me what time I have to be there.” (…) And when I told Vince (Gilligan), he said, “Well, I actually wrote something for you if you’re interested.” And then I literally cried. I started screaming. He said there was this thing that had been brewing and boiling in his head for a while. There were these elements of the story, but it didn’t quite work. But at one point she said on the way to Better Call Saul, he was watching me, he was getting to know me, learning about the way I work, he realized he was going to have to write it for me. And then it started working, and that’s how he explained it. I’m sweating to say it because it’s flattery and a compliment that’s almost hard to take.”
Rhea Seehorn immediately agreed to join the series and said that the opportunity to see many crew members again on the set of this project sweetened the moment in which he had to say goodbye to Better Call Saul. Of course, the actress could not reveal any details of the plot of the new TV series by Vince Gilligan, but he assured that it will not be connected at all to the TV series the screenwriter has worked on so far. Although filming will take place in Albuquerque the series will have nothing to do with Better Call SaulRhea Seehorn says. Indeed, the actress said:
“I can tell you it has nothing to do with Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul. But surely there are fans who won’t believe it’s not a Kim Wexler spin-off until it literally airs. But it’s not (a Kim Wexler spin-off).”
