Hale Appleman (Eliot Waugh) and Summer Bishil (Margo Hanson) talk about what is in store for Season 2, the changes for the characters with the discovery of Fillory.
Hale discusses how the scope of the show has now expanded with Fillory being introduced, as magical creatures are now more involved now, along with new characters. Summer discusses how Margo rises to the challenge of Fillory, and how reading the books helped influences changes in her character.
Jason Ralph (Quentin Coldwater) & Olivia Taylor Dudley (Alice Quinn) talk about the changes coming in season 2, the new balance of power, and how relationships and dynamics will shift.
Olivia discusses how in Season 2 Alice starts to learn the extent of how powerful she is, and how Quentin and Alice’s relationship changes. Jason discusses the ‘tuts’ (the spells) and how they change according to the personalities of the characters. For example, Quentin tries to hide his. Jason also discusses how Quentin getting what he wants isn’t necessarily going to make him happy.
Stella Maeve (Julia Wicker) & Jade Tailor (Kady Orloff-Diaz) discuss season 2 of The Magicians, how assault effects victims and how it will continue to play into the show, and what Julia’s pact means for the show.
Stella discusses Julia being with the Beast, and how there is some levity in the duo as they journey through their situation. Stella also discusses how Julia’s sexual assault effected her; while it isn’t discussed explicitly, but shows through their emotions and actions. “They were stripped of their humanity, and they connect through that pain. It is about when something is taken from you, when it is so sacred–how to come back to yourself.” Jade also speaks on the guilt Kady has in leaving Julia’s attack.
