Better Call Saul: Rhea Seehorn’s Hope To Revisit Kim Wexler

One year and a week prior, Better Call Saul wrapped its sixth and final season, bridging the narrative gap between the world of seedy criminal lawyers and the deadly rising of Walter White’s meth kingpin. It might be over, but Emmy nominee Rhea Seehorn, who portrayed Kim Wexler in the AMC drama, has yet to give up hope on revisiting the character someday. 

“I don’t think that I will ever forget her,” she said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, thanks to a story from ComicBook. “I hope one day there’s an occasion to revisit these characters. Getting to play one character over the course of seven years, and the massive allowance of evolving and subtext and growth that they allowed us to play — she feels very three-dimensional as a human to me.”

Seehorn, nominated at the 75th Emmy Awards under the Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series category, reflected on the “parts of her that, as an actor and as a human, I am still trying to learn from, but I’m not fully successful. I don’t have a poker face like she does.”

“I would like to not nervously fill silences. It was very meaningful to me to meet fans that Kim meant so much to and for me to realize [the audience] are often her greatest confidants in scenes, because she doesn’t let other people in the room know what she’s thinking,” she added.

Speaking about her second consecutive nomination, Seehorn said she was “thrilled, it’s very exciting. I’m so happy that the show is nominated. As a fan of the show, in addition to being in it, I thought it was so respectful of the fans, the characters, and the story.” 

All seasons of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad are available on Netflix in the UK.
