The writers and producers working on Amazon’s sci-fi saga, The Expanse, are not at all subtle in their favoritism. Crisjen Avasarala (played by Shohreh Aghdashloo) gets the best lines, the best costumes, and the best bling. It’s hard to complain, though, when she’s 80% of what makes The Expanse worth watching.
The lady takes no shit, gives zero fucks, and has a hell of a time doing it.
Incidentally, readers of the Foreigner novels by C. J. Cherryh might understand what I mean when I say that while read Ilisidi’s dialogue I imagine her sounding like Shohreh Aghdashloo—but without the profanity.
