Bernard Robichaud on Jerry “ A Special Agent with a mission, and nothing will get in the way of that, his daughters love, while trying to save the World from a mysterious totalitarian life force. He calls him, “a Special Agent with a mission, and nothing will get in the way of that, his daughters love, while trying to save the World from a mysterious totalitarian life force.”
Miranda Spigener-Sapon, calls him, "a hardened highly trained black ops cia spook."
Andrew Flores on Michael “ Micheal is a happy go lucky type of guy. He comes off being a tough badass but in reality , he is sensitive and kind, and the type to walk little old ladies cross the street."
Miranda calls him, "a former college friend of jerry who joins him in the task."
Lindsay Foster’s quote on preparing to play Erin, Jerry’s missing daughter “Erin is smart and fiercely independent, like her father, who after her mother passed came back into the picture. Although they don’t show it, they have an unconditional love and appreciation each other; however, Jerry’s over protective tendencies clash with Erin’s desire for freedom. This need for autonomy during unstable, dystopian times results in her disappearance, maybe she should have listened to her father and stayed home after all."
On describing Erin, Miranda hints of what might be coming, "Erin, Jerry’s 19/20 year old daughter who after an innocent night with her best friend turned out missing (Michaels daughter who turned up dead) and Erin's love interest Cameron (also missing)."
