In season three, one shocking episode saw Wendy take out a hit on her own mentally ill brother Ben (Tom Pelphrey).

Speaking about the scenes, Laura told Variety's The Big Ticket podcast: "It’s a whole other level of intensity, there’s no question.”

Discussing her character further, the 56-year-old added: "Do I like representing Wendy? Do I like portraying Wendy? Absolutely.

"I love this part. I love this job. I love the people I work with. It’s an exceptional experience. But would I want to know her? Absolutely not.”

Her comments on Ben's death come after some fans claimed his assassination was staged.

Wendy's motives revolved around the family’s partnership with drug lord Navarro, which she felt Ben jeopardised.

But a viewer took to Reddit to explain his death hoax theory, writing: "When Wendy leaves Ben at the restaurant table.

"She gets in her van to leave the restaurant. Minute mark 56:26 in episode 9. The license plate is a Tennessee license plate. Can we say, at the bare minimum, they made it out of Missouri?

“Maybe Ben and Wendy made it to Knoxville, maybe Nelson got Ben either settled in with the people he knew in Knoxville or possibly got him to Mexico. A place where he would be safe.”

They admitted: “Why Navarro would do this for Wendy. I am not sure. Maybe it could be because he had already made his decision on Hellen, and sparing his soon to be new partners close brother can be seen as a kind gesture.

"A kind gesture that could asked to be remembered in the future."
