Emmy winner Chad Duell joins the hit Amazon Prime series The Bay in Season 3 in the role of Adam Kenway. Adam is described as a mysterious young man who comes to Bay City with an agenda and wreaks havoc in the lives of Pete Garrett (Kristos Andrews) and Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans). 

Series creator Gregori J. Martin revealed Duell had already taped his Season 3 episodes over the winter. “I’m excited for Chad’s fans to see him in a role very different from what he’s played before,” Martin stated. “He did a stellar job in bringing the character of Adam to life.”

When asked how it is it working on The Bay, Duell had nothing but praise for the opportunity. “I heard a lot about the show and had been wanting to be a part of it. I knew they had a great cast and crew, so I was really looking forward to working with them,” Duell stated. “I had a ton of fun on set and am looking forward to working more on the project in the future.” He also shared his insight into his new character. “I loved playing Adam Kenway. He is such a different character than what I have played in my past, which made him so much fun to play. He is a very dark and complex individual, and I had a blast playing with this character. He is so opposite of how I am in real life and those are always the most fun and challenging roles to play.”

The Bay is loaded with talented actors,” Duell continued, “and I had the pleasure of working closely with Kristos Andrews, Karrueche Tran, Mary Beth Evans, and Thomas Calabro. They were all great. Kristos and I are good friends off camera, so it was different yet fun playing characters that hated each other on screen. I worked a lot with Thomas, he and I had a lot of fun. He’s hilarious and very talented. I can go on and on about everyone. It was such a good experience and I am very happy to be a part of such a wonderful cast.”

Duell loved getting the chance to work with Martin and Wendy Riche. “It was an amazing experience working with them! Gregori is a great director who really allowed me to explore this character and try different things. I would love to continue to work with him in the future. He brought the best out of me,” stated Duell. “Wendy was great! I could tell how passionate she and Gregori are about this project and it trickles down to everyone involved. They both work very well together. Very happy to work with them!”
