 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.”
