None of the main cast (other than Harry Hamlin who had signed on for only one episode) knew if their character was going to survive to the end of any episode until the day before they got the script. Rather than letting them read about it in the script the job of telling an actor that his or her character was going to be killed in the next episode fell to the Executive Producer Karim Zreik, a job that earned him the nick name "The Assassin".

I have enjoyed watching Harper's Island. I think it's fresh and a step in the right direction for TV. I find the characters likable and I prefer writers that dig a bit deeper than some 2 dimensional characters in shows over the past decade. The writing shows strength in bringing out human characteristics that sometimes are only revealed in extremes (as in episode 5 over the money). It isn't spoon fed nonsense but has enough twists and turns to find yourself wishing for more.
My comment is it's a step in the right direction for fictional writing and a lot of shows including reality I am just over. I think it is brave to present something in a new vein of thought. Keep it coming I'm loving it and thanks to the writers for something fresh and not just regurgitated rubbish (like my brain doesn't work and I can't tell the difference). A big big thank you for an enjoyable mystery show.
