Marvel's Cloak & Dagger, based on the comic of the same name, is the story of Tandy (Olivia Holt), a young woman who has lost everything, and Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph), a young man trying to recover from a tragedy in his past. They discover that they have special abilities, and those abilities are more powerful when they're together.

SYFY FANGRRLS spoke with Andrea Roth, who plays Tandy's mother Melissa, and Miles Mussenden, who plays Tyrone's father Otis, about the differences between their fictional parenting styles when it comes to looking after their respective children. "I am an example of everything you should not do as a mother," Roth said, while Mussenden added: "I try to be the right example for my son as much as I can, but maybe smother him ... he may feel too much love sometimes, but I'm just trying to make sure he's on the straight and narrow."

Check out the full interview below in which Roth and Mussenden discuss their familiarity with their characters before filming, as well as the scarcity of parents in the Marvel universe and what they think will hook viewers when the show kicks off.

Cloak & Dagger premieres on June 7 on Freeform at 8/7c.
