Why Domhnall Gleeson thinks patient Sam Fortner is ‘relative’

It’s true that he could just turn himself in and admit his guilt, but that wouldn’t make for a particularly compelling show. Still, it’s fascinating to hear how Gleeson compares Sam’s conflicts to the smaller, more normal conflicts that normal people deal with on a daily basis. “I think that suits a lot of people,” the actor said. “Everybody is selfish and most people are trying to be a better person – but this is pushing that to the furthest extreme.”

He actually makes a pretty compelling point. While many people may recognize their misbehavior or undesirable traits, they may not want to risk getting hurt if confronted directly with them. It is an act of self-preservation, one that ultimately needs to be broken to truly heal or improve.

Unfortunately, Sam is a character who wants to atone for his crimes without harming himself or his reputation in the process. That’s why he finds himself in the predicament he started with, which will be demonstrated throughout the series. “You see that Sam has a hot temper, he’s always fighting, and you see him messed up in so many ways,” Gleeson mused about his character, “but his lack of control and the horror of that… it’s hidden beneath the lines and covered up.”

“The Patient” premieres August 30 on Hulu.
