The fourth season of Netflix’s Virgin River demurred off with Benjamin Hollingsworth ‘s character recently behind bars for shooting Jack way back in the Season 2 homestretch.( You know, in case you forgot how sluggishly time progresses in this city.) And Brady’s days in the captivity yard, though limited, were clearly memorable.
“ That was surely a first for me, ” Hollingsworth tells TVLine of getting shanked by a fellow internee. “ I got to work on that with the trick fellow, which was a lot of fun. We came up with kind of a cotillion where you hopefully did n’t see the cutter coming. ”
It was soon revealed that Vince, not Brady, was the factual shooter, though Hollingsworth noway misdoubted his character for a alternate. “ I knew Brady did n’t do it, ” he says. “ For one thing, that’s not the character I ’ve been playing, but I also spoke with the( former) showrunner. Making Brady a red herring was always part of the plan, but we wanted the followership to be like, ‘ No, it ca n’t be him! We just started to like him!’ ”
Speaking of starting to like Brady, Hollingsworth notes that his character’s love with Brie is largely responsible for his particular growth. “ Love will do that to you, ” he says. “ It’ll make you explore areas of life and of yourself that you might not have else, and it changes you as a person. ”
In fact, Hollingsworth’s favorite moment of Season 4 was when Brady entered the room to find Brie broken down and crying. As he recalls, “ She was defying the trauma of her once relationship with Dom, and we get to see Brady being compassionate and vulnerable with her. He opens up to her, and he also listens. This is n’t commodity we frequently get to see from him. ”
But captivity shankings and false allegations are only the morning. Hollingsworth teases that Season 5, which is presently rephotographing in Vancouver, will throw indeed more “ unanticipated ” curveballs at the residers of Virgin River — especially with the unrighteous Melissa Montgomery on the scene.
“( Fear) is a healthy emotion to have when it comes to her, ” Hollingsworth says of Melissa. “ She’s obviously over to no good, and the fact that she’s having regale with Jack and Mel at the end is concerning. ”
