The first two episodes of Paramount+'s new spy thriller series Rabbit Hole are now streaming and ahead of the premiere, we were able to catch up with stars Enid Graham (Mare of Easttown; Mindhunter), Rob Yang (The Menu; Glass), and Walt Klink (The English; Arctic Circle) to talk about their pivotal roles in this twist-filled freshman season.
The trio co-star opposite leading man Kiefer Sutherland (24; Designated Survivor), who plays John Weir, a corporate spy that is framed for murder by a world-controlling power.
When you consider all of the big twists and turns, talking about the show is actually a lot easier said than done, but we were able to ask both Graham, who plays Jo Madi, and Yang, who portrays Edward Homm, about their characters' respective journies this season.

ROHAN: Enid, while John (Kiefer Sutherland) is off doing his own thing, trying to get to the bottom of this big conspiracy, your character Enid has her own mystery to solve. What can you tell us about her arc this season? And whether we could see her storyline converge with John's?
ENID: Yeah, Jo Madi, you start the show with her a little frustrated in her position at the FBI, having been demoted, and anxious to re-position herself, and getting obsessed with John Weir and what's going on with him, knowing that there's something more than meets the eye. Of course, she operates in a man's world, so it's really hard to get any of her bosses to believe her.
So, she has to fight really hard and kind of go outside the lines a little bit to get it done. As the series goes on, I think what Jo imagines is going on turns into something much bigger than she thought and her ambition and drive maybe put her in some interesting and questionable situations, and certainly, it's really fun in the show how all the worlds, as it goes forward, meet and collide. I encourage you to watch to see what will happen next.
ROHAN: Rob, your character Edward is really put through the wringer in the first few episodes, what can we expect to see from him the rest of the season?
ROB: Yeah, he's kind of like a baby deer learning how to walk, just like awkward, like limbs, and I see him being birthed (*laughing*), in a way, like the real Edward. He's not aware of all these things that are useful that he just takes for granted. Well, we don't have any scenes together (*points to co-stars*)
But, he meets this group of people that he's never been around, he knows nobody like these people, and, there's no being outside of the lines and outside of the law, really. There's a freedom to that. So, I think what you see, when he starts to speak, you get to learn more about him while he's also discovering that, oh, that who he is, is actually valid, that the part that he kept quiet because he thought he had to, he can actually be himself.
In RABBIT HOLE, nothing is what it seems when John Weir, a master of deception in the world of corporate espionage, is framed for murder by powerful forces with the ability to influence and control populations.
