Publicity Edit

LA TV Insider Examiner talked with Madeline Mantock on the set of the show. "This is a revelation that [Stephen's] actually got superpowers, and I think he doesn't quite know how to translate that to someone who has been there for so long and has known him before that happened to him," Mantock said.

About Astrid's relationship with Stephen, she revealed that "they do a lot of falling out and coming back together again and falling out because of the fact that he can't quite just tell her what's going on. [...] She fancies the pants off him...and I guess it's that thing about knowing somebody so well and growing up with them and having a bit of a crush: I don't think she wants to let go of it."[2]

In an Access Hollywood interview, Robbie Amell said of the character: "Astrid is, I feel like, the only light thing that Stephen has in his life, and at the beginning of Episode 7, having lost Darcy ... and with the fallout from the hookup with Cara ... things are just not looking good for Stephen."[3]
