Runaways – Parents Roundtable

By  | 

Ever Carradine and James Marsters


Q) Thoughts about the potential Buffy reboot that’s been circling?


James: I like the idea. I like the idea of a new slayer in the new universe who’s not Buffy. A whole new story. I think the fact Joss [Whedon] is involved means it’s gonna be good. Other than that, I don’t know what’s going on. [laughs] I’m busy but very happy that “Don’t give up” is the theme of that show at the end of the day. I would like for that theme to keep getting played.


Q) Where do you pick up in season two?


Ever: We pick up almost exactly where we left off. Like 24 hours. It’s pretty quick.


James: The was the big shock of this season–that they had constructed a new box you could actually see me in. I was like, “Oh, I’m gonna have to work.”


Q) Ever, you get an exciting arc this season. Instead of just a mom, we’re reminded you’re a scientist, too.


Ever: Yeah! That’s how you meet Janet last year as a mother, but in the flashbacks, you learned she’s also a smart, educated woman who probably could have done many of the things her husband did but she decided to raise her son. When Victor’s out of the equation, she can really rise to the occasion. She gets a chance. And then you get to see them working together, which they do really well. That’s how they connected. It’s a relationship that really works.


James: I think you end up doing things that Victor can’t do.


Ever: I totally do. You’re a little more emotional about it, but she takes the time to think things through. It’s a very masculine/feminine approach.


James: You had to solve your problems from many different angles.


Ever: Yes. Exactly.


Q) Robert interfered with your marriage. How is that going to be handled?


James: I’m just going to guilt trip him.


Ever: I thought you were cool with it! At the big party…aren’t we all okay?


James: I was acting. I’m never going to forgive him. You lit up in a way you never did for me, so obviously he’s got something I don’t got. There’s probably something that’s never going to get repaired. I don’t think any of the PRIDE are best friends to begin with. I think we were chosen by Jonah to be a team and I don’t think we hang around together for fun.


Ever: In the first season, we learn the meeting is one a year and that they don’t really hang out for fun. I had pictures of me and Catherine to aerobics or yoga, but we don’t do that. But the thing that’s fun this season is–it’s always fun when PRIDE butts heads and people aren’t getting along–there is conflict, and we get some of that.


James: We’re all trying to do the best that we can in horrible circumstances. We didn’t think we were going to have to kill people. By the time we heard that part of the bargain with Jonah, it was apparent he was going to kill us or our kids unless we did that. So, what would you do if you went to work and signed a contract and found out to had to kill someone once a year and if you don’t they kill your family? We’re pretty stressed out and, worst of all, our kids knew about it and judged up to be villains. I want to scream at them and say, “If you would have been in my situation, you would have done the same thing!” Kill one teenager a year or let your whole family get wiped out?
