Interview with Cynthia Kaye McWilliams (The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey)

If you read the plot for Apple TV’s series ‘The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey’, it would say something about the series’s being a story of the deterioration and determination of a man called Ptolemy Grey (played by Samuel L Jackson). Whilst this is true and I’d probably even go as far as to say it’s one of the best performances of Samuel L Jackson’s career, the real emotional heartbeat of the film is Cynthia Kaye McWilliams’s character Sensia – the love of Ptolemy’s life.

Cynthia was tremendous in this role and after a conversation with her about her preparation and connection to the character, it’s easy to understand why it all came together so well.
