Emma Dumont Talks about Her Role in ‘Aquarius’
Emma Dumont may have the face of innocence, but her fictional character will eventually evolve into a good girl gone bad in NBC’s newest drama series, “Aquarius.” Read on for details.
In an exclusive interview with TVLine, Dumont described the experiences of her character, Emma, to be “so new and shocking and intense.” Although they both have the same first name, Dumont made it clear that Emma is younger and “less experienced at life” than her. Emma is also different from Dumont’s past roles before “Aquarius.”
Dumont revealed that Emma got more comfortable with Manson and her new “family.” The reason is Emma’s “black-and-white” personality. Dumont explained that she could interpret Emma however she wants and invent another back story, which led to Emma making crazy decisions.
However, Dumont’s interpretations were cleverly based on research like what her co-stars do to their own characters. She also became knowledgeable with the women of the ’60s which was helpful for her to interpret Emma. She took note of their role in the community, as well as their fashion and the type of music they most likely prefer.
“Aquarius” highlights the journey of Emma Karn. It was after Charles Manson successfully lured her to be his follower. Emma’s family eventually seeks the help of two experienced cops to find their lost girl. As the investigation goes on, the detectives find more clues heading to Manson’s disturbing world.
“Aquarius” is the first TV series from a broadcast network to have all of its episodes aired on other platforms. It will focus on the 1967 setting in Los Angeles which has witnessed the two-year struggle to solve the Manson murders. It also stars David Duchovny, Gethin Anthony and Grey Damon. The one-hour episodes air every Thursday at 9:00 p.m. on NBC.
