Special Agent Strahm is dead, and Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw's legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw's grand scheme is finally understood.
To start off with, you had semi-retired from acting when you first took the role of Jigsaw's wife in "Saw III," so what was it about the first two films that impressed you and made you want to step out of retirement and play such a integral part of the series?
Betsy Russell: Well, I just think it was because they made such a great movie that was really an ingenious idea. When you think about it it's like a thriller and the message is "appreciate your life," also it's shot really well. It's a crazy situation. All these people that are basically, I won't say they're bad people cause I don't think that anybody is inherently bad, they're probably deep down great people that do bad things in their life so those are the people that Jigsaw really hones in on. So to be involved with a franchise that really awakens people's senses, if you're that type of person that gets excited when you see horror movies, but yet has a good message and is shot beautifully and is really great.Read More
