'The Ark' star Samantha Glassner digs into Kelly's huge reveal in latest episode of SYFY series

Drama in space is always cooler than drama on Earth.

The Ark Official Trailer

Episode 10 of SYFY's The Ark shed even more light on the mysterious character of Kelly (Samantha Glassner), a hostage-taking passenger from Ark 15, who we now know is the daughter of Evelyn Maddox (Jelena Stupljanin), the woman who took over Trust’s company. In other words, viewers were right to suspect that this late-game newcomer to the cosmic soap opera might be up to no good.

How to Watch

Catch up on The Ark on Peacock or the SYFY app.

"I knew there was something going on," said Glassner, who also happens to be the daughter of the show's co-creator, Jonathan Glassner. "I knew there was something up because of what does happen in the episodes leading up to 10. I was like, 'Okay...something's really wrong with this girl. What's going on here?' And the reveal that her mom was Evelyn was not what I was expecting, but I think I was kind of prepared for an explanation for the behavior. Then when I got Episode 10, I was like, 'Oh my God! That's brilliant. Of course.'"

Glassner continued: "Because knowing that her mom was behind all of the evil, crazy that's happening right now that Ark One's having to deal with...of course the reason that Kelly would want to be undercover, making stuff happen would be because of her mom. And then you kind of get that understanding of her relationship with her mom and it becomes very clear — at least it did to me — very quickly that she's constantly in a position where she's trying to prove herself and earn her mother's respect and earn her mother's love. She feels like helping her mom's cause is going to be the way to accomplish that. That is why I think she so easily kills."
