Get to know the Crockett Island resident who thinks she knows best.
[Editor's note: The following contains spoilers through the finale of Midnight Mass.]Before getting into the meat of this interview, can we all just take a moment to applaud Samantha Sloyan for her powerhouse work in Mike Flanagan’s Midnight Mass? Yes, it can be extremely tough and frustrating watching Beverly Keane warp scripture to suit her needs and pursue her own goals at the expense of others, but Sloyan is downright magnetizing in the role, creating a “love to hate” type character that you simply can’t take your eyes off of.
While Midnight Mass does spend a good deal of time explaining why many members of the main ensemble find themselves in these particular situations with these specific motivations, we don’t get that for Bev. And we don't necessarily need it, but when you've got a character who stands out as much as she does, you can't help but wonder, where did this relentless determination to push the Crockett community in the direction she thought best even come from?
