“My interpretation is that they’re both Lokis, but they’re not the same person,” Herron explained. “I don’t see them as a brother and a sister. They have completely different backgrounds… and I think that’s really important for her character. They sort of have the same role in terms of universe and fate, but they won’t make the same decisions. “
« [The show is] looking at yourself and asking yourself ‘what makes us?’ “, Continued Herron. “I mean, look at all of the Lokis across the show, they’re all completely different. I think there is something beautiful about his romantic relationship with Sylvie, but they are not interchangeable. “
Herron said the process of achieving the kiss between the two actors was complicated because the shot had to convey a lot of things in a very short period of time.
“Emotionally, from Sylvie’s point of view, I think it’s goodbye,” Herron said. “But it’s always an accumulation of all these feelings. They both developed in the last few episodes. It was important to me that it didn’t look like a trap, like she was cheating on him. She’s obviously doing that, on the one hand, but I don’t think the kiss is any less genuine. I think she’s in a rough spot, but her feelings are real. “
The interview touches on a variety of topics, such as what COVID-19 complications forced the cast and crew to leave on the table (potentially for Loki season 2), how Sylvie’s backstory reminds Herron Jumanji , and how Tom Hiddleston and ultimately other actors on set prepared for scenes while running on set.
Loki Season 2 is an issue. If you want more of the trickster god, don’t miss The Good, The Bart, and Loki from The Simpsons. For more Marvel, expect What If… ?, released August 11, and a Hawkeye show starring Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld, later this year.
