Scott Speedman on What Shocked Him the Most About ‘You’ Season 3 (Unique)

Spoiler alert! Don’t proceed if in case you have not completed season 3 of Netflix’s You.

Scott Speedman had revenge on the mind for a lot of You season 3, enjoying Matthew, a rich tech CEO who turns into consumed with Joe Goldberg after the premature (and sudden) demise of his spouse, Natalie (Michaela McManus), within the first episode. For the Felicity alum, enjoying a personality who begins to have a psychological breakdown as he will get deeper and deeper into Joe’s orbit was intriguing and exhilarating.

“He was mysterious to a degree the place you do not actually know what he’s. He has charisma, which was fascinating. He is clearly a broken man, which was fascinating. He is clearly making an attempt to determine one thing. There was a very fascinating arc with him, the place he began in a sure place due to sure circumstances and [ended] in a very different place,” Speedman instructed ET. “That was fascinating to me, versus one thing that simply type of flatlines alongside. He had a full transition in a means. That was actually cool for me as a result of I knew the place he was going. He began as this chilly, eliminated man and never linked in any respect. That was fascinating to see if I might pull that off.”

However ask the 46-year-old actor, who’s now showing on Gray’s Anatomy as a brand new love curiosity for Meredith Gray, about what shocked him probably the most concerning the present season of You and the reply is considerably surprising.

“Essentially the most stunning factor about Matthew’s journey this season was the reconciliation together with his son [Theo]. That was type of fascinating. I did not see that coming,” Speedman started, earlier than stopping a beat and acknowledging the most important stunner on a present that includes plenty of demise. “And simply that I survive.”

Although Speedman stated he was conscious of the course his character’s arc would take (and that he’d survive it), it appeared there have been moments — at the least to him — the place there was ample alternative for Matthew to see a ugly destiny.

“What I preferred was that he type of went off the deep [end]. He acquired consumed with occasions, and for a man that is very held and really in management, he loses management. That is principally what I knew and that is what I hung my hat on in a means,” he stated. However there reached a degree the place Speedman expressed a need to channel his internal Joe Goldberg. “I used to be like, ‘Let me kill somebody, let me do one thing. Kill any individual. Let me get in there.’ However no, not this time. We’ll see. We’ll see if he ever comes again, who is aware of?”

Talking extra particularly about Matthew’s reconciliation with Theo, Speedman defined that the event was stunning merely on account of “the character of the present not having candy, happier endings.” “However when he actually begins to look after his son and he wakes as much as the truth that he is been a distant, not current father or mother after which he must get in there and save his son, that was fascinating to me too. I used to be shocked although, that that occurred,” he acknowledged. “Doing scenes with [Dylan Arnold], he is such a candy child and he is such an excellent actor, that was actually enjoyable to do. But it surely was enjoyable to beat him up just a little bit too, which was nice. But additionally, to have us come again collectively. He is such a likable presence that simply made sense.”

Speedman zeroed in on the dramatic finale showdown between Matthew and a paralyzed Joe within the kitchen as a private spotlight — culminating within the former’s memorable slap. “He deserved it,” he stated, referring to Joe. “He had that coming from plenty of completely different folks. That was a fantastic scene. It was actually enjoyable to do. It is difficult due to sure restrictions that Penn’s character, Joe, had. He could not actually converse. So it turned this difficult factor for an actor, for me, to attempt to get data with out him talking. The visceral components of it have been crucial components. When you get by way of the revenge, the ache and the anger he has in direction of this man. That every one boiled up and came visiting. It felt like a season’s price of vitality pouring out into one scene. And Penn was nice.”

However You left issues comparatively open-ended within the closing moments of the season. After Joe staged a murder-suicide on the Madre Linda house he shared with Love (R.I.P.), the residents of the waspy Northern California enclave thought their nightmare to be over. Matthew is even seen studying a narrative concerning the finish of Joe Goldberg on his cellphone months later. In fact, the reality is not that squeaky clear as Joe was revealed to be beginning anew in Paris. With Matthew and the others not realizing the total fact of what truly occurred, might there be an opportunity he’d return in season 4?

“I do not know if I will be in a beret, following him round to Paris, you already know what I imply?” Speedman stated with fun. “I do not suppose they’ll have me do this. However I imply, sure. It was considerably open. I made it in direction of the top. I did not shut that circle with him. It is potential, however I do not know. I feel they could have completely different storylines concerned.”

“If this was one other sort of present, you’d suppose [Matthew]’s nonetheless consumed with it, however they do these very particular seasons,” he added. “That character, it does not strike me he is let go of the rope with Joe an excessive amount of, you already know? So it appears to me he nonetheless desires to precise some revenge in some unspecified time in the future, however that is a unique present than the one they’re doing.”
