James S. A. Corey account (should be Ty Franck posting on that account) said that, in the scene between Anna and Amos in the last episode of The Expanse, the lines “because it needs to be done?” was Liz’s idea. 😀
Well… we all know she has an immense talent in everything that she does and having great ideas for her characters is not a surprise.
Her roles are all under her skin, you can see that by how deeply she goes into their heads and hearts. She knows them completely and at the same time she knows all the characters she has scenes with.
It’s a work that all the actors should do, but you don’t see it done often.
We have always liked that in Elizabeth. During interviews she’s always able to discuss also other actors’ roles. It’s necessary if you want to play someone accurately without missing any spot.
So that’s why it’s not a surprise she had the idea of “because it needs to be done?”, which implies that she understands Amos, since Anna understands him too.
Anyway this is what Ty Franck posted:
Now, to be fair, doing a callback to “because it needs to be done?” in this moment was in fact Elizabeth Mitchell’s idea. She has fantastic instincts.
