Tom Payne talks new thriller series

In Fox’s Monday-night drama thriller PRODIGAL SON, Tom Payne plays the title character, Malcolm Bright. Malcolm is a profiler of murderers, hired as a consultant at the NYPD after he’s fired by the FBI. When PRODIGAL SON begins, Malcolm hasn’t spoken to his father, Martin Whitly (Michael Sheen), in ten years. This is because Martin, a brilliant doctor, has murdered at least twenty-three people (maybe more). Martin has been locked up at a psych hospital since Malcolm, as a child, called the police on his dad. But solving some cases and saving lives requires expertise that Martin is uniquely qualified to provide, so Malcolm finds himself conferring with his father. This unnerves Malcolm – already suffering from his own psychological issues – and delights Martin.

Payne has spent his fair share of acting time dealing with gruesome death. The English actor played the kindly Paul “Jesus” Rovia on four seasons of THE WALKING DEAD. Payne’s other credits include the feature films IO, THE PHYSICIAN, INHERITANCE, and MY FUNNY VALENTINE, and the British TV series WATEROO ROAD and LUCK, as well as playing Linton in the 2009 U.K. miniseries adaptation of WUTHERING HEIGHTS.

Speaking at a Q&A session for PRODIGAL SON, Payne talks about his work on the series. In a follow-up conversation later, he goes into further detail.

Asked if he’s done any research into being a profiler, Payne says, “I think we’re really lucky in that there’s a wealth of material out there, fictional and true to life, to draw from. There are a few pockets out there of people [in real life] who are in the same position as me in the show. There’s one [podcast] in particular, which [executive producer] Sarah Schechter actually put me onto, called HAPPY FACE, about the daughter of a serial killer, and it follows her and her journey to talk to people who were affected by her father, directly and indirectly, and with her mother, and her relationship with her father, and the fears that she has, and the intense pain caused by having a father who’s a serial killer.

“So that was really helpful to me. It’s really hard to listen to, and made me cry many times, because there’s a lot of pain and hurt there. And the character in the show is in pretty much the same position and has a lot of walls up, but is intent on trying to understand his father and the similarities that may or may not exist between them.”

“Prodigal Son” Episode 9 “Pied-A-Terre”: Bright Tries Out Being “Normal” [PREVIEW]

A crime of passion, bashed in the head with a candlestick, how enticing. Looking ahead to the next episode of FOX‘s Prodigal Son, “Pied-A-Terre” seems to have serious sex appeal – a victim killed in his bed, and Bright (Tom Payne) getting in between the sheets with Eve (Molly Girggs). I’m curious to know what her angle is. She randomly shows up on Jessica’s (Bellamy Young) door step and conveniently slips her self into the Whitley’s circle, can’t be a coincidence. Possibly a child of one of The Surgeon’s (Michael Sheen) victims, seeking revenge?

What secret hiding place are we looking for? Dr. Whitley’s? He had to have another house to hold his victim’s captive in, so does the episode tittle lead us to believe that Malcolm will find it? Or does the title merely reflec a new case?

Jessica is in a mood: angry and seeking revenge on her husband – dead-set on making him pay for destroying the lives of her children.
