But I think that moment jumpstarted who Will Lexington was.
In late Season One, I had a scene in a jail cell with Gunnar and that was a very vulnerable and subtle. I have to be honest, as Chris, I don’t entirely understand it, but I have to go with it.
In addition to plenty of dramatic moments, the show has also featured tons of great music and characters viewers loved—including Will Lexington (Chris Carmack), a conflicted gay country star.
We sat down with Carmack to talk about what it was like playing Will for the past five seasons, his favorite moments from the show, and what’s in store for his character this season. I’ve been playing this character for five-and-a-half years.
