Charlie Cox Sometimes Dreaded Working on “Kin”

Here Charlie explains why he sometimes dreaded working on KIN, the most among it was his having to learn the Irish accent.

Kin star Charlie Cox sometimes ‘dreaded’ working on the RTE gangland show set

The Englishman also revealed his nerves at trying to pull off the Irish accent with viewers

Kin star Charlie Cox has admitted he sometimes “dreaded” working on the set of the gangland series.

The Daredevil actor plays the role of Michael Kinsella in the hit RTE One show, which will return to our screens later this year.

But the English actor admitted he sometimes “dreaded” going to work some days as he would be left emotionally exhausted filming certain scenes.

He told us: “When I read it (the script) I was so devastated by the loss of Jamie.

“I can tell you just from filming episodes two and three of last season. There was a period of time where I was like ‘wow, I really kind of am dreading going to work’.

“I mean I loved the creative process, I was loving the story telling and I believed in it so much. But sitting in those feelings… when you do a funeral scene and you’re doing a funeral all day, you’re sitting in that grief all day.

“You know there was a scene at the wake where Jamie is in the coffin and we filmed that scene all day and we are grieving all day, albeit it acting but you still have to draw it from somewhere.

“It lingers… It’s a very uncomfortable emotion to be living in and so my feeling with this show and in particular what happens in the beginning is that if anything it shines a light on how devastating to a family and to a community that life can be.”

Charlie revealed how fortunate he feels that he no longer takes on roles for the money – but rather to fill his own creative needs as an actor.

“The last few years of my life I have been fortunate enough to be in a position where there has been work. Not all the time. There was a few years ago there was a period where I was waiting for the right thing and nothing would come along. It gets quite nerve wracking after eight or nine months.

“I’ve never been someone who jumps into work just to work. I always wanted to curate a career as much as possible. It’s very difficult to do when you start because you have to take every job you get really.

“The last few years have been slightly different. And so., I’m not taking any jobs for the money. It’s all for creative reasons.

“Then there are other things you factor in, like keeping the family together is a big one now.”

He told how he was originally attached to another project and so wouldn’t have been able to be a part of the series, which his wife – TV producer Samantha Thomas – was already involved with.

“So what happened with Kin was my wife is a producer on the show. She works for Bron Studios and we were in lockdown in the States where we live and she asked me to read this show.

“I was committed to a different show and that was slowly falling apart anyway. I was kind of a little bit relieved of that.

“I said to my wife, would they consider hiring me and we could keep the family together, we could all go to Dublin and make a show. I read it and I had also just finished watching Normal People.

“I was really moved by that and was reminded of the kind of storytelling I wanted to be involved in.”

Charlie also revealed his nerves at trying to pull off the Irish accent with viewers as he told how he bases his Irish accent off the voice of former Dublin goalkeeper, Shane Supple.

“I was terrified of that (doing an Irish accent). I worked my ass off when it comes to accents. I’m actually lucky because I’m not someone who can just do it like that. I’ve got friends who can just do accents. Sometimes the temptation is just to half-heartedly do it whereas I spent hours and hours and hours drilling the sounds listening to podcasts.

“I found this interview with Shane Supple, who is an ex soccer player and GAA player. I found the tone of his voice to be really humble and honest.

First Look at “Kin” Season 2

News on Charlie’s series KIN where he plays the part of Michael Kinsella. Read on.

First look at Kin series 2 as stars continue filming in Dublin for RTE crime drama

The new season will see the Kinsellas as the top dogs in Dublin but killing Eamon Cunningham having created as many problems as it solved.

Fans of hit RTE crime drama Kin don’t have long to wait for more action from the Kinsella family as filming for the second series has got underway.

BRON Studios, the award-winning media tech company, and Headline Pictures, announced today the second season of Kin began production in Dublin last week.

The new series of the gripping drama Kin will be broadcast on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player next year. The 8-episode 1-hour crime drama has enjoyed success with international critical acclaim and huge ratings in key markets.

Returning cast includes Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Clare Dunne (Herself), Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones), Sam Keeley (Joe vs Carole), Emmett J. Scanlan (Peaky Blinders), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Outlander), and Yasmin Seky. Francis Magee has been upped to a series regular this season.

In a preview, RTE said: “The new season will see the Kinsellas as the top dogs in Dublin but killing Eamon Cunningham having created as many problems as it solved. They have incurred the wrath of an enemy even more dangerous than him. And where once there were unbreakable bonds of blood and family, now there is only suspicion, distrust, and resentment.

“But the greatest threat to the family emerges from within – in the shape of a ruthless, bullying, agent of chaos. Fortunately, from positions of great adversity the boldest plans are often forged. And so it is with the Kinsellas.”

Kin is produced by BRON Studios and Headline Pictures, in association with RTÉ, with support by Screen Ireland.

While scanning the internet for any news to do with Charlie, I found that KIN has been renewed for season two. So we’ll get more serious dysfunction from the Kinsella Clan. So Charlie will be very busy for the foreseeable future given his many Disney+ series as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, and the upcoming TREASON, looks like Charlie will be with us for a long time to come.

“Kin” – E1X08 HD Screencaps

All I can say about that finale was what an amazing ending to a good series. The episode belonged to Charlie and Clare Dunn (Amanda Kinsella). They were mesmerizing to watch. And poor Jimmy (Emmett J. Scanlon). And, just realized I’m using a lot of “ands”….. Michael’s cold blooded execution of Eamonn Cunningham (Ciaran Hinds). What a great first season ender. Not too sure if there will be a second season, but what I’ve heard is there’s negotiations for it. Sometimes I wish they’d just keep it to the one season and leave it at a tight limited series. Given how good this show is I can’t see that happening. Oh, and how about that opening title with the blood red? Sort of foretold what would be happening.

“Kin” – E1X07 HD Screencaps

Here as promised are the hd screencaps from the penultimate episode of Charlie’s show KIN. As I said in my Twitter account, I’ve been having computer issues. I have a 12 year-old laptop I do everything on, and it sort of well… developed an attitude. I wouldn’t do anything I wanted it to so I had to get it looked at. Then when I got it back, I got sick. Every year I get sinusitis but this year it was accompanied by one of my more lengthy and painful migraines. Those can last days and I was more or less down for the count for three or four days. When I got to this episode I thought it was getting close to the finale I thought I’d wait and do them together.
