Man in the High Castle: Cast talks alternate-reality cliffhanger
Plus: Bella Heathcote teases her new character
The Man in the High Castle‘s first season went out with a bang last year. During the whirlwind finale‘s final moments, Ed was hauled off to jail, Juliana and Joe made a last-ditch escape from the Nazi embassy, and Tagomi seemingly traveled through time to an alternate reality.
So what in the world is happening when the alt-history drama returns to Amazon? Cast members did their best to fill in the blanks when they stopped by EW’s studio at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, teasing Bella Heathcote’s new “party girl” character and a conflict-rife second season.
“I think in season 2 you really see [Frank] take matters into his own hands and kind of forge a new relationship with the resistance,” said Rupert Evans, who plays Frank Frink. “He departs from his previous ideas about how to live in this place, this totalitarian state. So his life changes dramatically in season 2.”
As for Tagomi’s shocking time jump, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa didn’t give much away, only offering his hot take on the storyline. “I think everybody has an alternate reality. It’s just a matter of whether they question enough. I think the less we question, the less we realize that there’s more than just one way to look at things,” he said. “Tagomi is definitely someone that comes from a world and is on his own journey to find an answer within that world, but then the journey takes him to another world. It’s a Chinese box.”
