Martin spoke with Hollywood Reporter and talked about the current season of Mr. Robot. Heads up, this interview contains spoilers from episode 2.11, so if you haven’t watched it yet, avoid reading further until you’ve seen it!

What has this entire experience been like — essentially being locked in the trunk of a car, sometimes literally, and not being able to say anything about Tyrell?

I think it’s been kind of cool. I know people have been wondering. There have been questions and theories about the character. But I’ve been sort of enjoying being in the trunk, watching from the outside. What I like about the show is that it’s very brave in the sense that I always get surprised. The choice they made, keeping the character out of it and that mysterious sense, I think it’s been great to watch. Even though Tyrell isn’t always near or in the show, he’s always there, because everybody’s talking about him and wondering where he is. That’s kind of exciting. Sometimes, that’s even more exciting than being on!

It’s an interesting point, in that Tyrell’s time away from the show only further builds the mythology around him. Was there a different energy when you returned to Tyrell, coming back to the show after so long, after spending so much of the season as something of a boogeyman for Elliot?

Yeah. As you say, he’s this boogeyman, or an x-factor… that’s what I had seen him as, even in season one. That’s the way he interacts with Elliot. If you’re going to be practical about it, I shot most of this entire season at once. To me, as an experience, I didn’t experience that coming back, being here and being there. It’s more in seeing it now, the absence of him. I can see that when I see the series, but I couldn’t feel it when I shot the scenes.

How much did you end up shooting this season? Of course we saw Tyrell in some sequences here and there, but few and far between…

Well, it’s hard to compare. This season was block shot, instead of episode for episode. So it was actually more intense for me, this season, than last year. It was just more compressed.

What were your conversations with Sam Esmail like as you two discussed Tyrell’s story in season two? 

We have conversations about character and what’s coming. I kind of knew the overall arc, but what I feel is so great is that even when we shot season one, sometimes we wouldn’t know what was going to happen in the next episode. You have to play the scenes anyway, not knowing what’s coming. I think that’s the beauty of this show. You just lean back and enjoy the ride, and trust that whatever’s going to happen is going to happen. Not knowing too much in advance, sometimes, is a blessing. At least it is for me. It makes me very relaxed, feeling that I’m a part of this, and let’s just go for this ride.

ROBOT Season 3 is slated for 2017.
