What kind of discussions do you and showrunner Ray McKinnon have about Daniel’s guilt or innocence?
Aden Young: It began with a question, “Are you going to tell me?” And he said, “Well, would you like to know?” And then we began really looking at that reality of, is it possible for an actor to play the role without that very cut-in-stone idea of guilt or innocence? And it was a really interesting challenge because we both were really intrigued by the idea of the elasticity of memory.
Does that mean we are going to find out by the end of this season whether or not he did it?
AY: That’s not what I said. [Laughs] What you’re going to find out is one of the most gradual, incremental, spectacular reveals of possible truth and possible fiction at the same time. As far as the whodunit aspect of it, I think people are really going to be enthralled by Ray’s handling of it.
