Is Ed Kemper returning to Mindhunter for season 2 and who plays him?
The psychological thriller series, which is based on Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit – a book written by FBI agent John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker – will pick up several years after season 1.
Actors Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany will reprise their respective roles as FBI profilers Holden Ford and Bill Tench, and this time they’re investigating the Atlanta child murders, which took place between 1979 and 1981.
And fans will be pleased to hear that Ed Kemper, the serial killer and necrophile also known as ‘The Co-ed Killer’, will also return to the screen. But who plays this character and where have you seen him before?
Who plays Ed Kemper in Mindhunter?
The real Ed Kemper was a vicious killer from California who murdered 10 people, including his own mother and paternal grandparents, as well as several female hitchhikers.
In Mindhunter, he is played by break-out star Cameron Britton, who has been praised for his chilling portrayal of Ed, for which he received an Emmy Award.
The 33-year-old actor has had a string of TV gigs, including playing Hazel the assassin in Netflix’s Umbrella Academy and a recurring role as Tim in the American drama series Stitchers.
He has also appeared in movies such as Days Out Of Day, The Girl In The Spider’s Web – where he played the hacker named Plague – and All Earthly Constraints, which was released this year.
Cameron clearly has a knack for playing challenging roles.
Mindhunter season 2 is available to stream on Netflix now.
