Mindhunter Special: Gareth Williams

Thank you for checking back into my Mindhunter Special.

Pinch Me

Here I am joined by actor Gareth Williams who played Chief Redding in Mindhunter, Season 2.

Gareth recalls his epiphanic moment that pointed him towards his acting journey. The people he met along the way; Matt Dillon, Marisa Tomei, Laurence Fishburne, they all were part of Gareth’s successful career in theatre, TV and film. We hear about his friendship with the late, great Jim (that’s James Gandolfini to the rest of us), and how they met.

He shares his favourite memories from Mindhunter too (and some behind-the-scenes funny stories too from the S2 wrap party).

A humble actor, he has many credits to his name, Into the Dark, NCIS, S.W.A.T., Dawson’s Creek, Mindhunter… I could go on.  Some of his favourite moments have been his “pinch me” moments, this could be from being on set with Tom Hanks in From the Earth to the Moon or working with David Fincher on Mindhunter.

Big thanks to Gareth for this interview!
