Returned Rule No. 7: Feel for the dead
“It was very important when we were writing season one to imagine that living and dead people were as important [as each other] and that we should understand what happens in Camille’s head just as Lena’s head,” says Gobert. “I didn’t want to be more in one territory than another. We are with the living and the dead, together.”
Returned Rule No. 8: Fear, and don't fear, Victor
“There are as many answers as there are spectators of the show,” Gobert says of whether to be scared of the undead little boy who seems to have telepathic control over living and dead. “That is very important for me, because Victor is both a loved child and very frightening. That’s everybody’s choice.”
Returned Rule No. 9: Stick with the original
“The truth is I only saw five or 10 minutes [of the remake], and it was very difficult for me to appreciate it,” says Gobert. “Because it was very close to what we do and also very different, and it would be more interesting for me to see it in four or five years when it will be more objective.”
