What awaited his character in season 2? The actress explains that he “ has as an idea to arrive at the Mildred Ratched of the time of Flight over a Cuckoo's nest (editor's note: played by Louise Fletcher in the 1975 film), during the fourth and final year. Except that we wouldn't see her in the hospital, but outside of work, at home, in her private life, in parallel with Flight over a cuckoo's nest. That's the plan. . After that, that can change, everything evolves often, structurally speaking, in Ryan's mind. But we can say that we know more or less where the story is going, we have this focus. I found that. very interesting to know the end, which it will be in the 1970s. It remains to be seen how she will become this person! “.
Mildred Ratched even colder and more ruthless?
Will she become even colder and more ruthless? That's a complicated question for the actress, who explained why in The Wrap: “From my perspective, the things she does in Flight Over a Cuckoo's Nest are actually the result of a woman. – in my opinion, this is just my opinion – of a woman who is the product of a patriarchal infrastructure internal to the hospital, who does what she believes is right and right and who are choices and decisions focused on what she knew at the time of how to treat patients with mental illness. ” While she disagrees with these choices, she acknowledges that they were often “considered and made at the time . “ In short, she concludes: “The more the series advances, the more we will discover other facets of her, other trials and how that will inform her future”.
