‘The Expanse’ Stars Cara Gee & Keon Alexander Talk Getting Into Character (and Marcos’ Underwear) — Exclusive Video

If you’re not already watching “The Expanse” on Amazon Prime Video right now, go ahead and do it right away. If you watch each episode without stopping to sleep or feed, you might get there before the conclusion of the entire series airing today (January 14).

Space.com had the opportunity to speak with “The Expanse” actors Cara Gee, who plays Camina Drummer, and Keon Alexander, who plays Marco Inaros.

Drummer is a very serious character and rightfully so. In recent years, he had to deal with the death of his friend and mentor Klaes Ashford and having his spine crushed while commanding the OPA Behemoth during the Slow Zone Incident. Either of those two things will take the wind out of your sails. Gee, on the other hand, is riding the storm with the wind at her back. So how do you prepare for the transformation from reality to paper?

“I dive into the drummer as face first, whenever I get the chance,” he laughs. “We’re given these brilliant words to say and her voice and the makeup, as it is, it’s a gift to be able to transform so completely.”

The role of Alexander is also not a picnic. To put it bluntly, Marco Inaros is insane and to deliver a performance as compelling as Alexander’s, you have to wonder if it’s hard to let go, once your head is in that space.

“I feel like I’m still deconstructing some of the ways he’s intertwined with me, so yeah, absolutely. I mean, obviously he’s there. There are parts of all of us that are like him, which is what makes me mad.” a little bit when people use the word ‘evil’ — these are the pitfalls of narcissism and the lengths to which the ego will go if we don’t all restrain it,” Alexander said. “It’s been an interesting thing to get away from it, certainly a process”.

This sixth and final season begins with the solar system engulfed in all-out war, as Marco Inaros continues to launch devastating asteroid strikes against Earth and Mars. However, both Gee and Alexander joined the story after it already aired on Syfy, the former in 2017’s “Doors & Corners” (S02, E02) and the latter in 2019’s “Retrograde” (S04, E04). After all that time, they must have taken something from the show to remind them of “The Expanse” experience.

“Okay…you can tell them…” Alexander tells Gee, laughing. “She took Marco Inaros’s underwear. Yes, she released Marco’s underwear…”

And if you want to know more about that story… you’ll need to watch the video above.

It’s sad to think that the show is coming to an end, but we’ll see Naomi Nagata (Dominique Tipper), Jim Holden (Steven Strait), Amos Burton (Wes Chatham), as well as Clarissa Mao (Nadine Nicole), Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) and Bobbie Draper (Frankie Adams) will join Gee and Alexander for the show’s gripping finale on Friday.

It might be time to rewatch the series.

This is the last season that Amazon Prime Video will produce. It takes us to the events of book 6, “Babylon’s Ashes” by James SA Corey, the joint pseudonym of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. In the overall story, there’s a 28-year gap between the events of “Babylon’s Ashes” and book 7, “Persepolis Rising,” so this seems like a natural place to break. The final book in the series, the ninth novel, “Leviathan Falls” is now available.

Season 6 consists of just six episodes, each about an hour long. The sixth and final episode, “Babylon’s Ashes,” premieres today on Amazon Prime TV (January 14).
