While Jonny Lee Miller may not be considered a frontrunner to take home a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for his role in CBS’ crime drama “Elementary,” he does have a chance at pulling in a surprise nomination for a manic (yet heartfelt) take on the Sherlock Holmes character. Miller is someone who came into this show with an established resume, and the final few episodes of the season regarding Moriarty really gave him an opportunity to show off some of his talents.
So where does the series really go from here? It’s a worthy question, as the writers are hard at work at turning out scripts. We know that the premiere will shift the setting to London temporarily, where there will be more opportunities to learn about Sherlock’s past.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Miller himself makes it clear that he is not particularly worried about what comes next for the series, putting his trust fully in executive producer Rob Doherty and his team:
“It’s something I’m excited about because I trust our showrunner. I trust [Rob and] those guys. You can relax, and you can know that you’re going to have good material. They do that job much better than I could. I know they’ve got characters up their sleeves, that they’ve done good groundwork with bringing characters in and I think we have a solid foundation.”
In this chat, Miller also discussed how the Moriarty reveal involving Natalie Dormer’s Irene Adler ended up being one of the more difficult scenes for him to film over the course of the entire season:
“The scene with Irene when he finds out she’s Moriarty, that was difficult for us, because we really wanted it to be real. When you’re trying to juggle all of that, you want to do things realistically. So that was challenging. And also, it was a long scene, but Natalie is fantastic so that made it a lot easier for me.”
