Rhea Seehorn Was Surprised By What Happened To Kim At The End Of Better Call Saul

MOVIE NEWS – Rhea Seehorn was sure her character doesn’t even live long enough to see the ending of Better Call Saul.



Breaking Bad spinoff series Better Call Saul ended this summer. It brought to a close a story that began with the first season in 2015. Although the series featured several returning characters from Breaking Bad, Rhea Seehorn managed to grab fans with her portrayal of Kim Wexler. Kim was not even mentioned in the original series, but by the end of Better Call Saul, she had become one of the franchise’s most beloved characters.

Seehorn, for her part, didn’t expect Kim to rise to become one of the series’ most beloved characters for so many of her fans.

In fact, she was so sure that her time on the series would be limited that she always looked forward to Kim’s death scene in every script she received. Even then, Seehorn didn’t want to assume that all this meant that Kim was safe when her character was given her own story thread outside of her relationship with Jimmy.

“At some point, I started having storylines that weren’t just ancillary to Jimmy [McGill], and I was thrilled, but I honestly didn’t dare to dream,” Seehorn recently explained via Empire Magazine.

According to Seehorn, she flipped through the scripts too often with her partner Patrick Fabian (Howard Hamlin), and when Kim made it to the end of the final episode unscathed, the actress was surprised. She suggests that this nervousness may have been caused by a fear of having to leave the series. This was difficult for her after having grown to love not only Kim Wexler’s character, but everything else about Better Call Saul.

“It just became a thing of, ‘I don’t want to get out of this sandbox.’ It’s the best writing, the best character, and the best people,” she says.

Seehorn was finally nominated for an Emmy this year for her portrayal of Kim, a role that was years overdue. With the second half of Season 6 now under her belt, she’ll be in line for another nomination in 2023. The second half of season 6 will be eligible for a separate award.

Meanwhile, Better Call Saul co-creator Vince Gilligan continues to work with Seehorn. She has signed on to star in his next series, which has been picked up for two seasons on Apple TV+.
