The fourth and final season of the drama series The Killing, available exclusively on Netflix, wraps up previously unresolved story threads and takes viewers on a journey through a new crime. Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) and Detective Holder (Joel Kinnaman) struggle to manage the fall-out from their shocking actions at the end of last season, while also trying to solve the murder of a picture perfect family, survived only by the son, Kyle Stansbury (Tyler Ross), who was shot in the head during the massacre and left with no clear memory of what happened. The season also stars Joan Allen, as Colonel Margaret Rayne, the headmaster of the all-boys military academy that Kyle attends, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden, as two of the other students there, and Gregg Henry.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Tyler Ross (who gives a terrific, heartbreaking and haunting performance as Kyle Stansbury) talked about how he came to the show, how welcoming everyone was, the excitement of being the new guy on set, how great Netflix is about giving the power to the show creator, finally getting to drop the F-bomb on the show, that he didn’t know the final outcome for his character, going into the show, his reaction when he found out, working with Joan Allen, the most difficult scenes to shoot, and what he learned about himself, as an actor, from this experience. He also talked about reuniting with The Wise Kids writer/director Stephen Cone for Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are major spoilers, if you haven’t seen The Killing season 4.
