If you haven’t seen “The Expanse” on Amazon Prime Video right now, go and do so immediately. If you watch every episode without stopping to sleep or eat, you maybe just make it before concluding total The series airs today (January 14).
Space.com had the opportunity to speak with “The Expanse“actors Cara Gee, who plays Camina Drummer, and Keon Alexander, who plays Marco Inaros.
The drummer is a very serious character and rightfully so. In the last few years, she’s faced the death of her friend and mentor Klaes Ashford and she broke her spine while commanding OPA Behemoth during the Slow Zone Incident. Either of those things will take the wind out of your sails. On the other hand, Gee is riding the storm with the wind behind. So how does she prepare for her transition from reality to role?
“I lunged at the drummer as if I was going to face first, every chance I got,” she laughs. “They gave us such wonderful words to say and her voice and makeup, just like it is, it’s a gift to be able to completely transform.”
Alexander’s role is also not to go on a picnic. To put it bluntly, Marco Inaros is madness and to give a convincing performance like Alexander, you have to wonder if it’s hard to let go, once your head is in that space.
“I feel like I’m still deciphering some of the ways he’s attached to me, so that’s totally true. I mean, he’s clearly there. There are parts of us all like that. him, that’s what pisses me off a little when people use the word ‘evil’ – these are the traps of narcissism and the ranges the ego will go if it’s left unchecked in all of us,” said Alexander. “It’s a fun thing to walk far from him, definitely a process. “
This sixth and final season begins with the solar system entering all-out war, as Marco Inaros continues to launch devastating asteroid strikes on Earth and Mars. However, both Gee and Alexander joined the story after Syfy was on the air, the former in 2017 in “Doors & Corners” (S02, E02) and the latter in 2019 in “Retrograde” (S04, E04). . After all this time, they must have taken something from the show to remember the “The Expanse” experience.
“It’s okay… you can tell them…” Alexander smiled at Gee. “She took Marco Inaros’ underwear. Yes, she liberated Marco’s underwear…”
And if you want to hear more about that story… you’ll need to watch the video above.
