The drama will air on Channel 4 globally and on Netflix outside of the U.K. and Ireland in the New Year.

Formerly called Jerusalem, the new Channel 4/Netflix drama Traitors follows Feef Symonds, a British civil servant who agrees to spy on her own government for the Americans during the aftermath of WWII as Britain tries to re-establish itself in a new world order.

Feef is played by Emma Appleton (The End of the F***ing World, Clique) while Matt Lauria from Friday Night Lights plays her American lover Peter. Other cast members include Bodyguard’s Keely Hawes, and A Streetcat Named Bob actor Luke Treadaway.

The six-part spy thriller was created by multiple award-winning playwright and screenwriter Bash Doran known for her work on Boardwalk Empire, Looming Tower and Masters of Sex). Traitors will be Doran’s first original commission for British TV which will air on Channel 4 in Ireland/UK early in the New Year.

First look images for the series have been released today on the Channel 4 Website.

 Where are you right now?

I’m on a train from Exeter to London, I’m just trying to find a toilet so I can talk…

Hang on a minute, have you seen Bodyguard? Train toilets are bad places to be in that…

Yes! If the phone goes dead, you’ll know what’s happened… [silence]. Ah — it’s empty!

So on to Mr Mercedes. how did you get into the mind of your character, Brady Hartsfield?

I read a lot. The more you learn about it, the more you come to understand — these young males, and it is mostly males, nearly all had horrific childhoods, which makes them empty inside. You don’t sympathise but you understand.

How do you play ‘empty’?

It’s quite liberating, in a way, to play someone who is empty inside. You don’t have to think ‘how would he react?’ because he’s a blank. He’s really good at pretending to be human.

Brady is fictional but he feels real…

Mr Mercedes is based on a true story — Stephen King read about a woman driving a car into a crowd and that’s how it started. We talked about that a lot, making the series. The attention tends to be all about terrorist attacks — you forget that there’s a lot of home-grown terrorism out there.

 You bust some crazy moves to Radiohead…

That was my one contribution to the soundtrack! It was a scene with me tapping away on the computer and I was just bouncing around to Radiohead and they said: ‘OK, we’ll leave that in.’ The music is great in the show, it really adds to it.

True — I’ll never listen to the opening chords of The Pixies’ Here Comes Your Man in quite the same way. What was the toughest scene?

Finding my mum on the floor coughing up blood because she’s ingested a poisoned burger — that was a pretty harrowing scene. I had a lot of scenes with Kelly Lynch, who plays Brady’s mother, and she was great fun. You need that when you’re playing those scenes.

So it wasn’t tough shaving your hair off?

I was fine with that. I felt like I’d given my all to the part so I thought, ‘why not go out with all guns blazing?’ The best thing was that with all my hair gone, there was no way they could call me back for reshoots.

And now you’re back for season two…

It’s a completely new challenge because in season two I’m in a hospital bed in a coma and we’re exploring the inside of Brady’s head. We’d brainstorm ideas about what’s going on in there and it gets quite freeform at times. As an actor you usually bounce off people, so this was a tough one.

Mr Mercedes season one is available on Amazon Prime. Season two is on Thursdays (episode one is available now)

th
On executive producers Jack Bender and David E. Kelley’s chilling AT&T Audience Network adaptation of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes, Harry Treadaway plays the titular serial killer, Brady Hartsfield. Over the course of the first nine episodes, audiences have witnessed just how tormented and demented of a psychopath Hartsfield is as he’s killed innocent people and continuously terrorized Det. Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson), who retired after being unable to solve a massacre, when 16 people were killed by a Mercedes.

A fan of King’s novel, which is the first of a crime noir trilogy following Det. Hodges, Treadaway tells ET ahead of the season one finale that the reality these fictional characters lived in was so relatable, but portraying Hartsfield proved to be a challenge. To internalize the character’s past tragedies and voyeuristic approach to killing, the actor cleared out his local bookstore of texts on psychopaths and serial killers, getting a few strange looks at the checkout counter

“Lots of really jolly things,” Treadaway jokes with regard to digging deep into stories about deranged personalities, adding: “In reality, and sadly, there are so many cases of people like Brady committing crimes like Brady that you don’t have to look too far to see the real deal out in our world. For me, that helped factor into something other than [playing] a character in a Stephen King novel.”

In fact, the real world perhaps paralleled the series too closely at times. While King’s 2014 book was based on an Ohio incident from 2011, vehicle-ramming attacks in Berlin, Jerusalem and Nice, France, have become even more prevalent in the three years since the book was first released. In fact, two days after ET visited the Charleston, South Carolina, set, a man drove a car into pedestrians in London, killing four people.

At the time of our visit, Bender, who also directed the series, said that “given the world we’re in right now, taking a look inside one of these monsters may not be such a bad thing.” While speaking with ET by phone, Treadaway echoes that sentiment. “We want the work we’re doing to have an impact on the world at large,” he says. “In a weird way, to work on something that has parallels in our world, there’s something in it to discuss and address.”

And all those real-life horrors are perhaps why a show like Mr. Mercedes, which was renewed for a second season, continuing Hodges’ story with Finders Keepers, and the many other King adaptations have resonated with audiences this year. “There’s something about the suburban horror with him, the residential nightmare that he paints so well,” Treadaway muses. “The idea that you’re living on the street with someone who could be plotting

something like that is terrifying. Sadly, we’re in a world where we’ve become aware of that more and more.”

Though, it’s nothing like being in the mind of someone like that, which the actor was while filming Mr. Mercedes. Committed to the role, the actor found himself struggling to not take Hartsfield home with him each night. “Trying to not be dreaming it and think of it first thing when you wake up — I have to say I wasn’t always successful being able to do that,” says Treadaway, who’s starting to pick up some awards season attention for his portrayal. “It was a character you really needed to get into to get under the skin of.”

Returning to Sky Atlantic’s Arctic drama Fortitude, 
Luke Treadaway talks to Marie Claire about climate change and bad headlines

I interrupt Luke Treadaway on a little break in Canada. At the tail end of the press tour for A Streetcat Named Bob, he’s flown from the movie’s New York premiere to visit his girlfriend, actress Ruta Gedmintas, in Toronto where she’s filming psychological thriller The Strain.

It was decided that the transatlantic promotional trip would be a little too much for his co-star Bob, the stocky ginger cat who plays himself in the true story of James Bowen (Treadaway) whose life of addiction and homelessness was turned around by the arrival of a small, furry shadow. ‘Bob was ready for a little chill out after all the press in London,’ says Treadaway, where he was greeted at the premiere by the Duchess of Cambridge. ‘I think [Bob and his owner] will be doing Berlin, though. I missed him in New York.’

LUKE-1220x747
 

Treadaway’s next project is a gear change from the 
feel-good vibes of Bob, as he returns in season two of suspenseful Sky Atlantic drama Fortitude, all bleak arctic landscapes and a cast peppered with Scandi-noir veterans (hello, Sofie Gråbøl). Treadaway plays British scientist Vincent Rattrey, sent to the isolated arctic town of Fortitude to research a worrying trend of cannibalism in polar bears. But then dead bodies start turning up in mysterious circumstances and no one is quite sure why. With so many subtle twists and turns in the plot, even Treadaway found it hard to keep up. ‘It was tricky to work out what was actually going on at the time,’ he says. A chunk of filming was done on location in the tiny, isolated town of Reyðarfjörður in eastern Iceland.

Dennis Quaid has joined the cast for season two (presumably in part to fill the ‘recognizable US actor’ slot after the unfortunate demise of Stanley Tucci’s character DCI Morton) and with little to do besides bracing walks, they found creative ways to pass their free time. ‘Richard Dormer, Dennis [Quaid] and myself made up a ukulele band. We played one night at the crew pub… Dennis was brilliant. He’s a lovely human being and great on the guitar and piano – what’s not to love?’ Although there appears to be supernatural elements at play, the show relays a message about global warming, too – a particularly potent subject with a climate change denier unpacking in the White House. ‘Members of [Trump’s] energy team are just terrifying,’ agrees Treadaway.

He’s not so sold on the UK situation, either. ‘Andrea Leadsom [was] in charge of energy in this country and she was the one connected to the people who are fracking. We voted in Parliament against it and it was [David] Cameron who said, “We’re going to do it anyway.” I fear massively for the planet really.’

Treadaway grew up in Devon. He and his twin brother Harry (also an actor) made their professional debut together in a mockumentary called Brothers Of The Head, about a pair of conjoined twins who become rock stars. Twelve years later, aged 32, the brothers have forged successful but separate paths in the industry. Luke indicates that he’s more than a little bored of the whole ‘sibling rivalry’ shtick. ‘It’s quite rare that it comes up now, which is really pleasing, because I don’t have much to say.’

 Treadaway has been referred to as the National Theatre’s ‘million-dollar man’ thanks to leading roles in War Horse and The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time (which won him an Olivier Award for Best Leading Actor in 2013), two shows that have vastly contributed to the British theatre boom of the last ten years and – Treadaway believes – help bolster the case against Arts Council funding cuts. ‘They’re both productions that would very rarely get produced in private theatre, because the two years or so of development and the weeks and weeks of workshops [they require] isn’t necessarily what a commercial theatre is going for.’

Off stage, Treadaway began his relationship with Gedmintas in 2011. Dating another actor is handy, he says, as ‘it’s useful to have someone who understands the strange nature of this job.’ But, unlike a lot of unmarried couples in their early thirties, he insists they’re not suffering the well-meaning wedding bells enquiries from friends and family.

With 2016 having turned out to be a car crash year in many ways, has Treadaway got any big hopes for the New Year? He says he’d like to see certain papers stop writing ‘f**king horrible headlines’ for one (he’s supportive of the Stop Funding Hate campaign, which is gathering momentum when we speak), and thinks we could all do with being a ‘bit kinder’ to each other. ‘Think about the fact that in 50 years or so we’ll all be dead – we can’t take our money with us. If everyone had that in their heads when it came to running governments and energy policies, then surely there would be a better outcome for the planet? Surely? Well, that’s my theory anyway.’

Guilty pleasure? Watching rubbish TV, which can be a good way to clear the mind.

Where is home? I share a flat in North London with my girlfriend [actress Ruta Gedmintas], but grew up in Devon, which will always be home.

Career plan B? I don’t have one, as I never had a plan A. I fell into acting after joining the National Youth Theatre when I was 16.

Who would play you in a movie of your life? I would definitely have to offer it first to my twin brother Harry, who is also an actor.

Biggest bugbear? Politicians and governments funding seemingly constant wars in the world – it’s a bit more than a bugbear, I know.

As a child you wanted to be The centre of attention.

Earliest memory? Swimming in a lake on a family camping holiday to France when I was about three.
