Boardwalk Empire’s Anthony Laciura on Eddie Kessler’s Fate

[ Spoilers ahead. ] Ever since the beginning of Boardwalk Empire , Eddie Kessler has had Nucky Thompson's back, acting as a bodyguard and even taking a bullet for his boss. But this season Kessler's loyalty was put to the test. After delivering money to one of the Capone brothers, he was picked up by two federal agents, including the undercover Agent Knox, a proto-FBI type working for J. Edgar Hoover who wants to prove that there is a web of organized crime emerging across the country. (Connecting the dots between Capone and Thompson would be a vital piece of the puzzle.) To get Kessler to confess, Knox tells him that unless he rats on Nucky, they would reveal his past misdeeds in Germany, which involved a lengthy session auf Deutsch . Not able to live with his betrayal, at the end of last night's episode Kessler commits suicide. Anthony Laciura, who played Kessler, and Brian Geraghty, who played Knox, filled us in on shooting this heartbreaking episode at the Boardwalk Empire premiere last month.   Read More....
