Season 2 of the FX crime thriller The Bridge has Detective Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) and her Mexican counterpart, Detective Marco Ruiz (Demián Bichir) teamed up again to when the body of a cartel member is found on U.S. soil. Brutal crimes and dangerous enemies will see them pulled into a complex web of drug running, money laundering and police corruption. This season also stars Ted Levine, Matthew Lillard, Emily Rios, Thomas M. Wright, Annabeth Gish, Franka Potente, Nathan Phillips, Abraham Benrubi and Lyle Lovett.
During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Demián Bichir talked about how excited he was to explore new avenues of the story for The Bridge Season 2, that he likes the way the show doesn’t label one country as good and the other as bad, the importance of keeping the promises you set up over the course of a season, having his brother Bruno on the show this season, working with such a talented cast, and playing a character that is very clear about where he wants to go and how he wants things to be done. He also talked about the experience of shooting his directorial debut, Refugio (which he also wrote, produced and starred in), that he can’t wait to direct again, and how he’d like to direct an episode of The Bridge. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
