People may think they know everything about Satan, but they really don’t know about Satan. In our show its really about a mother and a daughter and a dad, basically because the antichrist is born to this beautiful woman that I chose to be carrier of my spawn. And boy did it work out!
Aubrey, what did you bring to the character of Laura as she adjusts to small town life?
Aubrey Plaza: I really try to ground her. She’s a complicated character. She’s flawed, she’s a single mother, demons are coming after her every day and she’s got to take care of her 13-year-old girl. She’s just doing the best she can.
I just try to bring the truth to her, what a single mom would be like in these circumstances. The stakes are high. She’s going to die everyday, people are trying to kill her daughter. What are you gonna do?
Lucy, how does one prepare to play the role of the Antichrist?
Lucy DeVito: It’s real easy actually. The way that I approached Chrissy, similar to Aubrey, that she’s a real person. I think that there are dualities in everyone, and being a 13 year old girl you can be demon-like at times.
