It’s been a week since sci-fi action/comedy paper girl Premiered on Prime Video, and there’s a lot to talk about in terms of story – especially when it comes to time travel and stranger things comparisons. However, the familial aspects of the story found and the fact that the show brings past and future versions of the same characters to interact opens up a whole different conversation about the series. This is the series star Sofia Rosinsky stopped by to discuss in an exclusive interview with Collider Ladies Night.
During the interview, Rosinky, who plays Mac Coyle, had a lot to say about Collider’s Perry Nemiroff about her character, her personality and her shocking turning point. Rosinsky also commented on what she hopes to explore with the role when the show returns for Season 2:
“I feel like Mac’s sense of humor is naturally very present throughout Season 1 until she learns certain shocking news. Then it kind of starts to ease off a little as it would based on the news she heard. But I would say that Mac is probably very reticent at the start of the series and she’s a really tough nut to crack but…when she hears about certain news I think that shell starts to melt a little bit because she realizes that there is no point in maintaining that and trying to keep her vigilant. Really, there’s no point. It’s useless now. So I think it’s pretty claustrophobic for them in a way, but at the same time it’s actually pretty liberating because there’s no need for that. She has adopted this shell for the environment around her at home. She has a very hard life at home. She had to be very strong to get through all of this and I find it interesting that because of the good, positive influence these girls have had on her and just this information that she’s finding out, she’s able to do that letting go a little bit and actually finding out who she wants to be and who she knows is behind that shell and I think just seeing her sense of humor come through and seeing her character change – she has a beautiful arch and I’m just looking forward to exploring that hopefully.”
Rosinsky isn’t the only one looking forward to a possible second run paper girl. During the series’ panel at this year’s SDCC, showrunners and executive producers Brian K. Vaughan, Christopher C Rogersand Cliff Chiang also spoke to Collider about season 2, revealing that they “absolutely have a direction planned” and hope they make it.
paper girl is based on the comic book series of the same name, written by Vaughan and illustrated by Chiang, which ran for 30 issues between 2015 and 2019. The story was adapted for television by Stephanie Folsom (toy story 4, Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power). The cast is there too Camryn Jones, Riley Lai Nelet, Ali Wang, Nate Corddry, Adina porterand Fina Strazza.
