Mahershala Ali, who plays Remmy, in House of Cards, dished about his role in season 3 of the Netflix political drama.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Ali shared the changes that were afoot for his character in the series.
"I will say that this year is unique in that Remmy has landed a really great job, but it's different than what we've seen before," he said. "It's not without complication. He's in an emotional transition for most of the season, which is great because the character kind of deepens. He's more three-dimensional and you learn more about his life outside of the work this season."
The actor also shared about how the great moments for his character arc in season 2, particularly the twist in the finale.
"I've enjoyed witnessing, at least creatively, the entertainment value of watching someone move through the ranks the way Frank has, which has been dramatic and really juicy," he said. "So I was a little surprised. I really appreciate working that show, with such great writers. If I wasn't on the show, I would definitely binge, because it's a little addicting. I wish we got to shoot more episodes, because you watch them all at once then you have to wait a year. I feel like this season is going to be tight."
The third season of House of Cards is currently filming in Maryland, where the first and second seasons were also shot. Initially, the continuation of filming of the third season of the Netflix series was fraught with troubles over the past few weeks as the producers weren't getting permission from the State of Maryland. But the issue was finally resolved on April 25.
