Sara Tomko and Alice Wetterlund chat about Asta and D'Arcy
Fun fact: when I interviewed Alan Tudyk and showrunner Chris Sheridan, they initially thought I was Sara Tomko when I entered our virtual room, and thus a conspiracy theory that Tomko and myself are the same person was born. Also, Both Tomko and Wetterlund are absolutely amazing humans and I got to witness that first-hand.
Sara Tomko and Alice Wetterlund offer us a glimpse into the heart and humor that season 3 promises. Tomko, Wetterlund, and a few other cast members, all cozied up on a couch, experiencing the first four episodes together - the scene they painted was nothing short of a mini-L.A. premiere packed with laughs, gasps, and a bucket load of emotions. Tomko reminisced about the camaraderie, saying, "We were all just holding each other and laughing," highlighting the genuine bond that translates so magically on screen.
Their shared enthusiasm for the new season is infectious, with Tomko declaring it as a moment of recognition, "Hey, look at us," echoing the sentiment of a popular meme they both adore. It's this beautiful off-screen friendship and on-screen chemistry that adds an extra layer of depth and genuine connection to their characters.
Alice Wetterlund, diving into the psyche of her character D'Arcy, gives us a sneak peek into the existential rollercoaster that awaits. D'Arcy, as Wetterlund describes, is on a mission to immerse herself in something bigger than her own life, driven by a mix of existential dread and a craving for purpose. "D'Arcy is desperate to get involved in something bigger than herself," she explains, shedding light on the journey towards finding meaning amidst the chaos of alien encounters and small-town drama. It's a pretty relatable quest for significance, purpose, and meaning in the vastness of the universe, making D'Arcy's character the one to watch this season.
Cannot wait to see what these two characters will be doing in this upcoming season.
