The CW’s new murder mystery In The Dark follows Murphy, a “hard-living, hard-drinking, disaffected twenty-something” blind women who stumbles drunk upon the lifeless body of Tyson, one of her closest friends. By the time police arrive, however, the body has disappeared. When it seems like the police aren’t taking her eyewitness account seriously, Murphy takes it upon herself to solve her friend’s murder. Ahead of its premiere this week, we spoke with various members of the show’s cast and crew. For our final interview, Keston John and Thamela Mpumlwana—who play Darnell and Tyson—talk about the show, and how Academy Award-winner Moonlight influenced their on-screen relationship.
