Tracy Spiridakos talks ‘Revolution’ season 2, Charlie seeking revenge and the ‘exciting’ script

From WonderCon comes an update on one of TV’s popular shows, Revolution, which heads into season 2. Star Tracy Spiridakos explains playing the revenge driven lead character Charlie.

The character’s been torn in a world away from her parents, but now takes orders and may have found the surrogate father in her Uncle Miles.

“Miles is not only her parental figure, if you will – which I think was earlier on – but they’ve grown to be quite close.  He’s her best friend and somebody that she trusts implicitly.  Throughout the first half, she didn’t trust him because she kept finding out all these things.  She’s the only person that doesn’t know anything, by the way.  People were like, “Oh, yeah, I knew you did that,” and she was like, “What?!”  So, Miles is that person where now they’ve grown to a place where they’re a lot more equal.  Miles has a lot more of the training and all that stuff, but she’s not a valuable asset to this war, and that’s fun.  Their relationship definitely grows even further, which is really cool.”

Spiridakos even talked about how impressive and surprising the scripts are at first read.

“It’s really cool.  Especially finding out about the whole power thing and what’s gone on there, and how we all develop and grow and where everybody ends up.  I seriously cannot wait.  I’m so excited for it to be back on because I can’t wait for everybody to watch it.  We’ve had a blast doing it.  I can’t wait to read what’s coming up.  We’re filming the last episode now, and then I have to go back to real life.  That’s not cool!”
