Trieste Kelly Dunn Talks BANSHEE, Relating to Her Character, Discovering the Story’s Secrets as the Show Goes Along, and More

The Cinemax action series Banshee tells the story of Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, PA. It’s the perfect cover for him to try to win back the love of his life (Ivana Milicevic) and hide out from the dangerous gangster (Ben Cross) that they both betrayed years earlier, while attempting not to get into too much more trouble. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Trieste Kelly Dunn (who plays Siobhan Kelly, a deputy in the Banshee sheriff’s department who has put her painful past behind her to become a cop) talked about how she came to be a part of the show, how she relates to her character, working with only a general idea of her character and finding out more details over the course of the season, how much putting on the uniform helps inform the character, how much she loves the fight scenes and stunts, what Siobhan might think if she found out Hood’s secret, that she’d love to have a scene with Job helping Siobhan pick out what to wear on a date, and how she’s going to be reading Episodes 1 and 2 of Season 2, very soon. Check out what she had to say after the jump. READ MORE...
