Will Resident foreignersWill General McCallister ever face off against Alan Tudyk’s special Harry Vanderspeigle ET? Even Linda Hamilton, the actress behind the show’s main antagonist, not so sure. However, despite her limited screen time (so far) and many questions surrounding her character’s looming presence, the actress is having a blast as she waits. to shed more light on McCallister’s sinister plans.
Hamilton told TVLine: “Always be the person on stage that doesn’t speak because people are always looking at you and waiting for you to do so. “I’m happy with that part!”
While McCallister remains largely a mystery, here’s what we know ahead of Wednesday’s mid-season finale (airing 8/9c on Syfy): General is tracking and detaining individuals The suspect has been abducted by aliens (possibly Grays) in the past. Included in that group was Ethan Stone, a medical doctor she attended after the boy Max called “doctor” (meaning Harry, Not Ethan) as an extraterrestrial. And as a child, she herself experienced an alien encounter with her father, which sadly committed suicide after no one obeyed and he “was tricked into believing that he had been deceived.” crazy”.
Hamilton said: “She is a very unique woman with powerful resources behind her. “She’s spent her whole life searching for an alien life form, and she won’t stop until she finds one.”
However, the quest to prove her father right makes her “want to do terrible things”. But the real question lies ahead: “How does she deal with all that tantrums? When you’re driven by that kind of crazy vision, a lifelong vision to prove something, mistakes will be made,” suggests Hamilton.
In addition, the actress is tight-lipped about what is left of the remaining nine episodes of Season 2. (The latter eight seasons will air this summer).
“Let’s just say it’s very much a continuation of her quest, but she is much closer than I had ever hoped for,” she teased. “General McCallister is on a mission of his own, as with the B-Camera, but I am in!”
“One of the things I want to do with [Hamilton] This season is about giving her a little more meat to play,” added creator and executive producer Chris Sheridan. “A lot of things were written before we hired her last year, so this time we can write about her strengths. We tried to make her character a little more three-dimensional, figuring out what made her remarkable. I’m excited for everyone to see it.”
And while Harry has finally taken care of the nasty Lisa Casper in 207, Lieutenant Logan (played by Alex Barima) and McCallister will soon be reunited, Hamilton confirmed. “I loved working with Alex, and they wrote us some really cool stuff. There’s definitely more to the McCallister/Logan show. ”
But no matter what lies ahead for General, Hamilton is enjoying the ride as it comes. “I came home and went, ‘Today I have to push a guy off a cliff!’ or ‘I have to stab a man in the arm with a fork!’ [Laughs] It is very well written and very enjoyable to read. “
She continued: “I am a fan of Chris Sheridan and Alan, and the entire team has been assembled. I feel like [the show] is what the world needs right now”.
