Watch the interview on Entertainmet Weekly’s website: Nathan Dean Parsons says Max is ‘fully dead’ in Roswell, New Mexico season 2
Carina Adly MacKenzie: We take a tiny step backwards. We open season two with Max and Liz back in bed. So that morning, I guess.
Nathan Dean Parsons: Yeah.
Carina Adly MacKenzie: And get to see a little bit of their conversation that we missed. And then we jumped back to the cave and then we jump ahead a couple of weeks. All within five minutes of…
Nathan Dean Parsons: It’s actually not that annoying at all, because I am fully dead, and no, it’s interesting to kind of be a step back from everything and just hear other people’s perspectives and be able to let the other characters-
Carina Adly MacKenzie: We actually, have _____ The house.
Nathan Dean Parsons: Yeah, I’m not, I’m-
Carina Adly MacKenzie: He hasn’t gotten any questions.
Michael Trevino: I don’t think it’s weirdness. I think the fact that now he has this new sister who was once dead and now alive. There’s just a lot of information of, wow, I even had a sister to begin with and now she’s back from the dead? I think in the world that we’re living in, it’s more about, like, okay, can I play this big brother role, like, and catch her up to speed? She has been gone for so many years. The world has changed, the world has shifted, and trying to help her ease into the family into the world and see how she does.
Heather Hemmens: I think it’s always going to be a rocky road for Michael and Maria. I think that he energy that the two of them bring together is chaotic and fiery and it’s just not something that’s going to settle that quickly, so I think we’ve pick up where it’s still gaining momentum and then we’re just not. I can reveal which direction it goes, but …
Carina Adly MacKenzie: You’re not like getting a golden retriever.
Heather Hemmens: She’s not moving in the airstream (?) many times.
Carina Adly MacKenzie: Isobel is a worse place than this, because Isobel didn’t gain anything. Isobel’s brother just died, she didn’t gain a sibling. A man she loved, who she thought she know turned out to not really know, also just died. So, she’s at a place of profound loss and a lot of anger, and some of it misdirected at Liz a little bit. And she is facing some new challenges, and she’s trying to strenghten herself and fortify herself, because she’s realizing how reliant she was on these tow men in her life and she wants to make sure that that never happens to her again.
Keanu who plays Tyler’s brother Flint is a karaoke monster. He jumps up with groups of people htat we don’t even know and he takes the microphone and he’s l ike “I’ll do the rap part, thanks.”
Yeah, we have a little bar that we go to. We do karaoke. It’s like all Santa Fe locals, and then. Yeah, Santa Fee’s.
Heather Hemmens: Santa Fe is a quiet town, so we created our own fun.
Carina Adly MacKenzie: Yeah. We are the noise.
The showrunner said during the show’s panel about Max being dead: “We found creative ways to use him.” and that includes flashbacks.
