Trust is difficult to find on Cult. With all the crazy happenings, it's not surprising that no one wants to believe what's going on.
In the Cult premiere, Matt Davis' Jeff couldn't get the police to even consider that his brother was abducted, so why would anyone else believe him?
When he met the show's research assistant, Jessica Lucas' Skye, Jeff found someone that bought his story and wanted to help in the search for Nate - but would they be able to really trust each other?
Last year, when Cult was still in production, I visited the set in Vancouver for TV Fanatic (trip provided by Warner Bros. TV) to interview the show's cast, as Davis and Lucas discussed Jeff and Skye's skepticism regarding the odd situations they witnessed and the cautious relationship between the two leads.
Is Jeff a believer right away? Or is he more skeptical?
Davis: It's a bit of both. Right away he's skeptical, but then so much happens so quickly that it's impossible for him to remain skeptical. He quickly gives into the notation that it's true and he's one of the few people who sees it. And, he has to warn the others somehow that it's true at the risk of looking crazy. So, he's constantly aware what he's going through is crazy and [that] trying to talk to anyone outside who doesn't know, he looks like a madman. He quickly buys into the true believerness of it all.
