“Mr Robot” star Carly Chaikin let loose with some well-placed profanity during the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Wednesday.
“We say ‘f—‘ and I’m going to say it right now because we say these things when you’re upset and you’re angry. That’s what comes out,” Chaikin said, when asked if she enjoyed the freedom to swear on the cable drama versus her previous work on network shows.
“It helps with saying the line sometimes, too, surprisingly,” she continued. “I said ‘c—-‘ last week and Twitter was freaking out. They didn’t drop that out, but then later I said ‘f—.’ So, I’m just profanity … And I totally forgot about that but it just felt right in the moment.”
Season 2 of “Mr. Robot” sees Elliot (Rami Malek) and fsociety’s continued attempts to use their hacking skills to bring down the wealthy and corrupt corporations ruling America from the shadows, and this time, even President Obama gets wind of the dire situations at hand. Chaikin plays Darlene, an fsociety hacker who wrote the code for the E Corp hack.
The Emmy-nominated drama hails from Esmail as well as Anonymous Content executive producers Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton, and is produced by Universal Cable Productions.
