Stitchers' stars tease Kirsten and Cameron's Season 2 love story
Stitchers Season 2 premieres tonight on Freeform, and we chatted with the stars of the show, Emma Ishta and Kyle Harris, to get the scoop on what's to come, including Kirsten and Cameron's love story.
"We get closer, but it's in different ways," Kyle Harris, who plays Cameron in the show, teased about the romance.
"I think they have such a mutual respect for one another, especially now that she knows what he did for her and the team, and she knows how he feels about her. I think we see them struggle with all those emotions being on the table now and how they go about everyday life and how they go about their work lives and what that does to Kirsten.
"Meanwhile, Cameron's like 'Look, I'm letting you know this is how I feel and this is what it is, and this is what you saw in there, so take it or leave it. If you don't, I'm going to move on.' And that's where the audience is left in this kind of, 'Ohhh, make up your mind.' It's a fun, frustrating situation between the two as always," Harris said.
Emma Ishta, who stars as Kirsten, echoed Harris' statements and added that the fact that she no longer has temporal dysplasia is also going to play a role in every aspect of Kirsten's life moving forward.
"This season, the challenge is how does she deal with all of the feelings she has now. That's going to kind of seep into every part of her life really," Ishta explained.
But Kirsten isn't the only one going through some serious changes in Season 2. Cameron's near-death experience will lead to a new outlook for him.
"He basically now lives his life with no fear because he left everything on the line and he died and returned and was like look, 'I had nothing to be afraid of.' So he kind of jumps right into things."
Harris added, "Sometimes it gets him into trouble, and sometimes he runs his mouth a little bit too much now, but I think, at the end of the day, it's a strong maturity that has come from that decision."
The show itself is also growing in the new season as Kirsten's hunt for answers about her family will heat up.
"That's going to be a pretty singular focus of Kirsten's this season is finding out more about her dad," Ishta said. "That's going to be a real thread throughout the entire season."
"We're going to get some answers," she promised.
"I think, every episode of this season trumps every episode of last season like tenfold," Harris said. "It's easy to pick a favorite last season, but this season it's really kind of floating, so every script just really tops the one before it. I think it was really a privilege that we got to be involved in all of it. So I think it's safe to say that this finale was one of my favorites because we ended on a strong note. We grew the show that much more."
"I think, I think if you turn it on, you're just going to be like 'Wow, this is not the same show that I watched last season.' It gets even better," Harris continued. "You're going to feel a lot cooler watching the show."
