Since his introduction to the series in late 2016, Mr. Ketch has murdered, blown up cars, delivered some excellently chilling lines, and ridden around on an awesome motorcycle. A quick fan favorite, Arthur Ketch is a breakout character that has fascinated viewers all over the globe. The character is portrayed by Canadian-born actor David Haydn-Jones who has mastered the art of the upper-class English accent.

Meagan Meehan (MM):“Arthur Ketch is an interesting character, to say the least. What were your thoughts about him the first time you read the script?”

David Haydn-Jones (DHJ): “To put it in perspective, I didn’t remotely know the WHOLE story of where this character was going to go when I first read the three pages of sides (no script) for the part. To me, as the actor, it was originally going to be a two or three episode arc only. I did love the chance to play sort of a Bond-esque shady character on a show that I had wanted to be in for a long time. It wasn’t until I started getting more and more meaty scripts and character development that I thought, ‘Oh boy, strap in.’ The layers just kept on emerging. For an actor that is SO fulfilling.”

MM:“Arthur Ketch is a skilled assassin. How do you think he justifies his actions?”

DHJ: “I DON’T think he justifies his actions at all. He was a child, most likely with a borderline personality disorder that was exploited, conditioned and trained to be the sociopath killer, as we see him today. He clearly has very primal, hunter urges and that is what partially helps create his sadistic pleasure. Also, he has been indoctrinated by a very dogmatic organization that orders him with military precision without question.”
