Created by Freddy Syborn (Killing Eve) and based on the novel by Daniel Cole, the crime thriller Ragdoll, which is available to stream at AMC+, follows DC Lake Edmunds (Lucy Hale), an American detective who finds herself in London and entangled in a grotesque case that involves six people who have been murdered, dismembered and sewn into one body that’s left suspended from the ceiling, given the appropriate nickname of the Ragdoll. As Edmunds navigates just how involved disgraced detective DS Rose (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) is and how much she can trust DI Baxter (Thalissa Teixeira), she does everything she can to help stop a killer while also keeping herself from becoming one of his victims.

During this 1-on-1 interview with Collider, which you can both watch and read, Hale talked about why she wanted to be a part of this show, playing someone with trust issues, her character’s tattoos, keeping a sense of humor in a dark world, why it’s fun to not know what’s coming next in the story, feeling like audiences will be satisfied with the journey this season, whether she’d want to continue telling this story in another season, how much she’s grown since her time on Pretty Little Liars, and why this is a turning point in her career.

Collider: When this project came your way, what most attracted you to it? Was it the story? Was it the character? Was it all of those things? Was it none of those things?

LUCY HALE: It was all of it. I love the genre of the show. I love true crime. I love true crime podcasts. I’m the first to turn on a serial killer documentary. I just am naturally drawn to the darker things in life, and the morbid and gruesome. I just wanna know, and I wanna know more. And so, I got sent the script and I was really excited because I love Killing Eve. I think it’s a very smart show. I think that the balance between the humor, these crazy characters, and the gruesomeness of it all just makes it really unique. That’s what I loved about Ragdoll too. There’s bviously all of the elements of why we like a show like this, but the writing and how the characters use humor to cope with everything around them, made it really interesting. And then, there was the whole thing of, I’m dying to do something different. I’m dying to do something a little left of center.

Creatively, I actually needed to do something that excited me, and the show just got me so excited. And I love Edmunds. Originally, when I read the script, I was like, “Oh, she’s British. Cool.” But what I thought was so funny was that they needed someone to drop into this British crime world. She’s very American. I don’t wanna say she’s naive, but she’s not jaded by her work yet. She’s still desperate to do the right thing and desperate to do a good job and show that she deserves to be there. She walks in, and Baxter and Rose obviously have a long history, but she’s determined to make her way into this little triangle. She third wheels a lot of the time. I love that she’s not afraid to talk about things. Especially in her line of work, people don’t talk about the heart of the matter. They don’t talk about feelings. They don’t talk about emotions. Edmunds just leads with her heart, all the time, for better or for worse.
