“She’s not a damsel that needs rescuing — she’ll also be working hard,” explains Emma D’Arcy about their character Astrid on “Truth Seekers.” “You don’t often get female characters who get to be as brave and as kick-ass and as front-footed as Astrid,” D’Arcy adds in their exclusive interview with Gold Derby (watch the video above).
They elaborates, “She’s got nothing to lose, do you know what I mean? And that’s really charming and exciting and somehow, Astrid’s femininity isn’t a defining aspect for that character and that’s really encouraging because parts like that are still pretty limited and I also really like the fact that big questions about where Astrid’s come from are part of the underlying story.”
