When did you meet your co-star, Mireille Enos?
Joel Kinnaman: Actually on the flight up to Vancouver after we both got the roles. We had no initial “chemistry read,” but it instantly worked. It’s my favorite work relationship I’ve ever had. She’s a remarkable person. She makes acting look so easy.
You mentioned the ‘Missing’ episode - did you enjoy exploring Sarah’s personal life?
Mireille Enos: I did. It was one of the most exciting weeks of shooting in my career. Joel Kinnaman is just an incredible partner to work with, and it was just the two of us. 12 to 14 hours a day, just getting to work with him - it was very exciting.
Are you and Mireille Enos as different from each other as your characters are on the show?
Joel Kinnaman: Yeah. I definitely think so. But we get along incredibly well. I’ve definitely got a working crush on her. She’s a fantastic human being, and if not the best actress I’ve ever worked with, definitely up there. She’s just focused on the work and a very selfless human being, which brings out the best in me. And I can make her laugh on screen and off screen and that’s all I need. The note that we’ve been getting from every director is like, “Maybe you don’t like each other that much okay?” Cause we just kind of want to stand and smile at each other and be kind to each other.
Beyond being a gifted actor, Kinnaman has earned his colleagues’ affection.
Mireille Enos: I think he’s remarkable. He’s one of the loveliest people I’ve ever worked with. He works so hard and is so committed to honest storytelling. Plus, he’s so generous to everyone on the set and is such a team player. We met on the airplane up to Vancouver for the pilot and in that three-hour flight, it was clear we were going to be great pals. We had immediate trust and respect. And it’s just grown and grown from there.
