From the start, it was essential to Eaton that Lottie, who may have a psychological sickness, wasn’t portrayed as a villain. “I feel there’s loads of that in our business immediately,” she says. As Eaton describes, Lottie is a personality who walks a fantastic line. From one scene to the following, her actions beg sure questions: Did this trauma exist earlier than the crash? Is it the crash trauma itself? Does she have a present, or is she fighting psychological well being? “It may be difficult some days to not lean an excessive amount of a method, and our writers and administrators on set are actually nice at giving me little hints right here and there—like, ‘Sure, you might be in the fitting route,’ or ‘Perhaps much less this manner.’” she says. Not understanding which means she’s going to go is a enjoyable problem for Eaton. And regardless that she’s very protecting of the character, she’s glad to go blindly into the darkness of the present and the place they take her.
With season two, we lastly get to see what has come of Lottie 25 years after being discovered. Performed by Simone Kessell, older Lottie is the founder and chief of a cult-like group, or “intentional group,” referred to as Camp Inexperienced Pine. Although the teenager and current-day variations of every Yellowjackets character by no means share scenes, there appears to be a particular bond between the actors, which was the case for Eaton and Kessell too. “I like Simone with all my coronary heart,” Eaton gushes. From the second they met over dinner, Eaton trusted Kessell with Lottie wholeheartedly. “We’re nearly the identical individual. We’re flopsy and possibly a bit annoying, however we at all times discuss it as Simone being the sunshine in Lottie and my model being the darkness, and she or he’s on her journey there.”
That darkness is what excites Eaton essentially the most as she thinks about what’s subsequent for teen Lottie. With a 3rd season confirmed by Showtime, she’s satisfied it’s going to be a tough highway forward for not simply Lottie but in addition the entire group. “I don’t know what sort of journey that might be, however it’s going to most likely be fairly darkish,” she alludes.
