Since transitioning from the performing arts (under the guidance of legendary choreographer Debbie Allen) to acting, Perry Mattfeld has long been honing her skills. However, nothing prepared the actress for her most challenging role to date, that of Murphy Mason in The CW drama In the Dark. As Mason, Mattfeld stars as a later-in-life-blind woman whose disillusionment with the world is exacerbated when her friend Tyson is murdered. Fearing his murder will go unsolved Murphy embarks on her own investigation, one that grows increasingly dangerous. "This role isn't just the girlfriend, I've played those,” she revealed during a recent exclusive interview with MediaVillage. “This is the hardest thing I have ever done and the hardest I have ever worked. I had to pull from everything I had in me to try and create this because it goes so high and so low. It never really sits in the middle."
