STV Podcast 161 - Runaways - Spoiler TV Exclusive interview with star Angel Parker

The podcast team were very lucky to speak to awesome and absolutely delightful Angel Parker from the hit Hulu show Runaways. You can listen to the full interview below but we thought we would share a few highlights from the interview:

How is it playing a strong character who is turning pretty-evil?
You will learn a little more about Catherine as the show goes on and you can’t paint her with just one brush, but yes, she does make some tough calls and tough choices and she is very clear on her mission. I love playing her, to play a woman who is so strong and so clear on what she needs to do and won’t let anyone stop her, that’s a strength and a quality I love tapping into. As the series goes on Catherine does change and she starts to question her decisions.

Catherine does seem to care about these kids.
Runaways is showing the heart of the pride, you do see that with all the adults, and pride members, there is a conflict. Every villain and character have reasons for what they do. When you get to see that those decisions are not easy, and that you don’t want to be that evil, but you sort of have to be in order to achieve the goals you have set out to achieve.  When your trying to get the truth out of Molly, it’s not an easy call to make. Catherine is very happy she doesn’t have to inject her with truth serum. But down the line, because they runaway, they know more than they are telling.

Is there any chance of your characters appearing in the greater MCU?
I think it is to early and we are definitely not at liberty to say. In the comics we crossed over with Cloak and Dagger, who have their own show now on Freeform. We haven’t shot anything which crosses over with them, which was in the original source material, but I would love for them to show up on our show and for us to show up with them, that would be very cool. The MCU is all connected and we have some fun little cameos in our show that I’m so excited for you to see.

Any word on season 2? Or is that something you don’t think about?
I think about it daily. I'm still waiting. We are all waiting and will hopefully know by Christmas so we will be able to celebrate all together, but no we don't know and it all depends on the fans and the success of the show. We are halfway through and we all wanna make more. I have a good feeling and I do think about it more than I should.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
