Collectiva Diva Sits Down With the Cast and Crew of the CW’s New Apocalypse, “The Messengers”
Diva: Joel, the pilot deals with suicide, bullying, homosexuality and foster homes. [Those are] really heavy…important teen issues. How did you deal with that?
Joel Courtney: Peter has a really dark past. I mean, he’s a teenager, teenagers have problems. He’s really just learning how to navigate that horrible situation.
Diva: So we see [the messengers] interacting in [their] own little worlds. Are we going to see [them] coming together with some of the other characters?
Joel: It was really funny, because in the pilot, I never actually got to work with any of the other actors. It wasn’t until the second episode. I knew these people in Albuquerque but I never actually got to work with them until three months later. We go our own separate ways and then we come back together.
