Silas Weir Mitchell told TVLine about the problems that Monroe and Rosalee will face due to their inter-wesen marriage. “The long and short of it is that [intermarriage] is very frowned upon in certain quarters”, says Mitchell. Source: TVLine
Take a sneak peek at the TVLine article.
TVLINE | Did Monroe and/or Rosalee expect or fear this kind of backlash ahead of time?
Yeah. We talked about it. At least in my mind we talked about it. I don’t remember if there were actual scenes about it.
The show is interesting in that it reflects our world in a very real way. When you’re dealing with an issue and you can use a slightly mythical brush with which to paint the story, you can hit notes that you can’t necessarily hit if you’re doing a show that is utterly placed in the world we live in on a daily basis, if you’re in a law firm or a kitchen or hospital… As there is a subset in our world, there’s a subset in Grimm that finds interracial stuff to be distasteful. They find it to be sort of criminal.
TVLINE | The description for next week’s episode says that the threats heat up.
Yes. There’s violence. I hate giving stuff away but it’s basically the intensity of the hatred really takes off. It becomes ugly. You see the ugliness of how people can be.
TVLINE | And now I’ll bug you with the question everyone bugs newlyweds with: When are you guys going to start a family?
[Laughs] Not right now. Bree [Turner, who plays Rosalee] keeps saying, “Jesus, if they make me get pregnant in the show after I was just pregnant in real life,” she’s going to have a minor breakdown. Just a small aneurysm. Again, I really don’t know.
