Krypton SDCC ’18 Interview: Wallis Day Chats Nyssa’s Development
SYFY series Krypton returned to San Diego Comic-Con for its second year, as the series’ cast and producers looked back on the Superman prequel’s first season and spilled some secrets about what we might see in Season 2. Krypton Podcast/DC TV Podcasts participated in the press room for Krypton this year where Lacy Baugher (of Krypton Podcast) chatted with the cast at the round tables to discuss the series.
Krypton star Wallis Day, who plays Nyssa Vex, sat down with the roundtables to talk about her character’s Season 1 arc. (Spoiler alert: She’s an even bigger Nyssa stan than our co-host Lacy is, and if you listen to Krypton Podcast at all, you know that’s a lot.) During the interview, Day discussed:
What Nyssa’s relationship with Jax-Ur will be like in Season 2
What it’s like to be part of a genre show with so many great women on it
Nyssa’s development from a schemer to a more three-dimensional character
(Apologies in advance that we completely messed up recording this, but Day’s comments are still worth listening to, even if you’ll probably most of the time wondering how Lacy is such a bad videographer that our subject is missing a head.)
“What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El, the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who is faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg finds himself in a difficult position. He must redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange. “
