How Jeremy Renner Coached Dianne Wiest Through A Rough Scene On Mayor Of Kingstown


During our interview, Dianne Wiest reflected on playing Miriam and shared the highlights of working with her on-screen sons. “I think it was Episode 1,” she said. “The first scene I do with Jeremy [Renner], who is … I adore working with him. He’s such a great actor.”

There’s no denying that Renner is in his best acting form on “Mayor of Kingstown,” playing his role with a focused intensity. “It’s right after my oldest son is shot and killed, and it’s a weird thing,” Wiest added. “I’m sort of accusing him, but what I’m really trying to do is save him from the same fate. But it’s hostile; it’s mean because Miriam is a woman that’s filled with rage because of her losses.”

Miriam isn’t all the rage, however. She volunteers at the Kingstown prison, teaching inmates the unabridged and unwatered-down history that’s often left out of high school textbooks and curricula.
