Mireille is one of the 30 supporting actors included in this year’s Emmy Awards class photo of The Hollywood Reporter! This time, THR asked them which co-star they’d call to bail them out of jail, the scene that had them squirming and what their dream spinoff would look like. Check out Mireille’s answers below, and two photos and scans in our gallery!

The show you never missed as a teen?
Twin Peaks felt really pivotal right in the teen years. It was edgy and cool.”
The co-star you’d call to bail you out of jail?
“Joel Kinnaman. He’s one of my besties in actual life and he’s just somebody that you can rely on. He shows up.”
What would a spinoff of your show be?
“I think it would be fun to go into that past and see Eric and Marisa and see who they were because there’s allusions to something but it’s not really explored. It’d be fun.”

Check out the official trailer for Katie Says Goodbye, which will be released in theaters and VOD on June 7th!

This new featurette of Good Omens give us new glimpses on Mireille as War!

This is not a drill, Hanna has been renewed for a second season!

DEADLINE – “We knew we had something unique with Hanna, and with the added momentum from its special post-Super Bowl preview, Amazon Prime Video customers worldwide agreed,” said Albert Cheng, Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “Since it debuted only ten days ago, Hanna has had a tremendous response, and we’re thrilled with not only how it has performed for us on the service, but with the action-packed world David Farr has created for the series and the stellar cast, led by Esmé Creed-Miles, Mireille Enos, and Joel Kinnaman. We’re excited to give fans a chance to see Hanna continue her journey on Amazon.”

Season Two will be written by Farr, who also serves as Executive Producer. Tom Coan will serve as Executive Producer for NBCUniversal International Studios. Executive Producers for Working Title Television are Andrew Woodhead, Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan. Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements will also serve as Executive Producers alongside Scott Nemes. Laura Hastings-Smith is Series Producer (The Little Drummer Girl, Hunger).

“I am very much looking forward to taking Hanna on the next stage of her journey,” said Farr. “It’s been a wonderful experience so far, and I feel hugely supported by NBCU, Working Title and Amazon. The next season will take us into a whole new imaginative world. I can’t wait to explore fresh terrain for this lonely young woman who wants only to belong, but who has to fight every day just to survive.”

Jeff Wachtel, President, NBCUniversal International Studios added, “It’s a wonderful example of what we look to do as a Studio – a brilliant idea brought to life by a world class creative team.”

Mireille recently stopped by the Los Angeles Times video studio for an Emmy Contenders chat, wherein she discussed how thrilled she was to be working with Joel Kinnaman again.

Today’s the day! All eight episodes of Hanna are now available for streaming on Amazon Prime. Visit our gallery for high-resolution screencaps from the premiere episode!

Joel and Mireille recently sat down with Los Angeles Times to discuss Hanna. They talked about a lot of interesting things, including how the dynamic differs from what we were used to with The Killing, their characters, and the best of all, how they got cast! You can read the full article at the Los Angeles Times website, but here’s are some snippets:

“It’s super wonderful to be back working with each other,” Enos says at Amazon’s Culver City headquarters, where she and Kinnaman have come together to discuss the series. Kinnaman smiles and nods in agreement.
Playing adversaries instead of partners marks a dramatic shift for the two actors — one they have excitedly embraced.

“It was a little trippy the first day we had shooting because the dynamic could not be more different,” Kinnaman says. “But after a couple of takes, it just flowed. We really work well together, and we pick up on little things each other does. I go this way a little bit, and she goes right there. It’s a little dance. It makes it so easy and fun.”

They both welcome the change in dynamics for “Hanna.”

“If we were playing two pals,” Enos says, “I don’t know if we could have done it.”

“I liked that it was so polar opposite,” Kinnaman adds. “Because we had such a good and long relationship on ‘The Killing,’ it was very important to both of us. ‘The Killing’ is one of those things that kinda stuck with people. There’s a danger of going back to the well.”

Enos was the first to be approached by Farr for the series. “We met at a spa hotel where she was shooting in England,” he says, “and I thought she would be perfect for the re-invention of the character.”

Enos says she was asked who she felt might be a good choice to play Erik. “In my mind, the character was a little older than Joel, so I told them to send me some of their favorite names of people in their mid-40s, ex-military.

“They got back to me and said, ‘Actually we were thinking of talking to Joel and wanted to see how you felt about that. I said, ‘Favorite human! On the planet!’ ”

Looking fondly at Enos, Kinnaman says, “Mireille basically cast me.”
