Watchmen Season 1 has been piecing together Will Reeves' history, exploring his ties to characters like Regina King's Angela Abar. Now, Reeves' portrayer, Louis Gossett Jr. is reflecting on his experience working with Regina King.
Gossett Jr. sat down with AV Club to talk about the show and his experience working with the cast. When it came to Regina King, he had nothing but praise to share.
Gossett Jr. gushed to the interviewer, saying, "I love that girl. I love Regina to death. She’s only just begun. We could read the telephone book together, I wouldn’t mind. [Laughs.] She’s the best. I gave her some little hints, and she bit the hook. Then she came back to me and I bit the hooks. So we made a little magic together, and I sometimes feel like maybe in some other lifetime we were relatives anyway. But it was a pleasure to play all the little secrets and all stuff. And I got her attention, I got her curiosity. That makes for a full relationship on camera. It was just wonderful."
