Killjoys Creator Michelle Lovretta Speaks on the Cast and Ordinary Life in Space
On Dutch: I did lean a little on the stereotypical "she's sexy and everyone loves her with Dutch." But now I would describe her as respected and strong and intensely loyal. She has lost some of the more overt coquettish things. She's a leader, and what I really adore about the dynamic is that she's a genuine leader.
On D'avin: With Luke, I saw his audition and immediately forwarded it to my writers, saying, "Holy sh**, that's the D'Vin-est D'Vin that ever D'Vin-ed!"
On Johnny: Aaron on and off camera is a lovely dude. Funny and good to be around. What's great to me is that, because it's a larger role, he shines here even more than he has in the past.
On the look of the show: It's a challenge, but it's why I constructed the show, which was, rather than getting on a ship and going to new places like Star Trek, I said, why don't we have a ship in a more contained environment so what you lose in novelty you gain in familiarity and relationships in communities?
