PRISON BREAK villain T-Bag is set to be dealing with an inner struggle when the new season hit screens next month, it has been revealed.
Actor Robert Knepper, who portrays the child murderer and rapist, will find himself confronting his past and his own issues in the limited run of the Fox hit.
In a recent interview the 57-year-old star hinted that his brutal, unrepentant alter-ego would be a changed man compared to the felon fans know him for.
"I think you're going to find him fighting his demons a little bit more than he would have before," the American actor said.
Robert continued: "Before, he would have said, 'You're looking at me wrong? You're dead'. Now, he'll say, 'I have to think about it. If I kill somebody, there are ramifications'.
He went on to tell The Hollywood Reporter: "When (creator) Paul Scheuring called me up for (season five) at the beginning of the year, I said, 'Just give him something new. Just make sure we have something new'.
“And he did. He gave us so much new stuff for so many of our characters, but also some of the old stuff, which was great."
The star also revealed that T-Bag, who famously had to cut off his own hand will be getting a new one for the revival.
He promised there would be some “cute little spontaneous moments” when the prisoner realises that he had the use of his hand back.
The new of Prison Break will explain how Michael Scofield (played by Wentworth Miller) managed to survive after his character seemingly died at the end of the show when it originally finished.
