Ratched’s Cynthia Nixon reveals three more lead characters were brutally murdered in axed Netflix scenes

Ratched’s Cynthia Nixon has revealed three more lead characters were brutally murdered in axed Netflix scenes.

The former Sex and the City star plays the love interest of the titular Mildred Ratched, Gwendolyn Briggs, and is one of only a handful of characters who make it through the eight-part series unscathed.

The series – created by American Horror Story’s Ryan Murphy – is a prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and sees Sarah Paulson play Nurse Ratched.

The character’s origin story sees Mildred arrive at a leading psychiatric hospital which conducts unsettling experiments on its patients, something she quickly gets involved in.

The character has a hand in a number of the gruesome deaths that play out across the series, and Cynthia revealed there should have been even more, including Gwendolyn.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, she said: “I was actually only hired for a year because they were supposed to kill me at the end.

“I thought it was going to be this really more tragic love story where I was going to die at the end of season one.

“Well, that has not happened. They shot me and they gave me cancer but I’m still walking around!”

Asked why Ryan had a change of heart about Gwendolyn, she added: “I think there were a few of us they were going to kill – I think they were going to kill Judy Davis [Nurse Betsy Bucket], too.

“And I think they were going to kill Finn Wittrock [Edmund Tolleson].

Judy Davis’ character Nurse Betsy Bucket was also supposed to die but creator Ryan Murphy changed his mind [/caption]

“I think they decided they liked having us around, I guess on some level maybe, it’s such a trope of queer characters that when they do find love, then somebody up and dies or is killed.

“So I think Ryan Murphy is very aware of that trope and wanted to offer people something else.”

Ratched is available on Netflix now.
