What Was It Like To Finally 'Defeat' Chucky For Andy Barclay's Alex Vincent?
"Chucky will be in my life forever," long-time Andy Barclay actor Alex Vincent tells USA Insider.
In last night's penultimate episode of "Chucky" Season 2, everyone's friend 'til the end managed to hoodwink his nemeses once again.
In an ill-advised moment of relief, heroes Jake (Zackary Arthur), Devon (Björgvin Arnarson), Lexy (Alyvia Alyn Lind), Andy (Alex Vincent), and Kyle (Christine Elise) think they've done Chucky in once and for all after a suitably dramatic exorcism that goes horribly awry for Father Bryce (Devon Sawa). While it's a nice thought, it's gonna take more than a roof-rattling exorcism and multiple gunshots to best ol' Charles Lee Ray. No, it's revealed at the end of the episode that Chucky Prime actually managed to transfer his soul at the last moment to Dr. Mixter (Rosemary Dunsmore), sparing himself the pain of Andy's well-placed shots to the Good Guy doll's body.
When USA Insider's Stephanie Gomulka spoke with Alex Vincent about Chucky's momentary "demise" and the potential for celebration on Andy's part, he was quick to acknowledge just how deep the character's paranoia runs.
"I don't know that it feels all that finalized to me — whether or not as an actor I continue on in this series or not, Chucky will be in my life forever. 'Friends to the end' really means it, so it doesn't really feel like Andy got to walk away," he explained.
As USA Insider has previously reported, Vincent accepted long ago that Chucky's in his life for good. "It's heavy for me in the parallels of Chucky [being] in my life — which of course is been mostly a blessing. I mean it's something I'm incredibly grateful for, but he's been over my shoulder in one way or another, metaphorically, my whole life. Luckily I don't get tortured quite the same way. My fate isn't as dark as Andy Barclay's, but there are some parallels there, metaphorically, that I relate to," he said.
But isn't there just the tiniest gleam of hope in Andy's eye?
"I'm not sure that Andy’s all that convinced that he has [escaped Chucky]," Vincent mused. "It's a little bit of optimism there and there's some hope — which is good. [That's] something he hasn't experienced in a while.
"I'm pretty sure that he has not come to any real resolution of this being over entirely but we'll see, we'll see what happens from here," he teased.
Find out what happens in the "Chucky" Season 2 finale when it premieres next Wed., Nov. 23 at 9/8c on USA Network and SYFY.
