Simonds Interview continued
TKTV: In season 2, the characters of Charlie and Kirsten attempted to marry.
Now, four seasons later, with a great deal of plot under the bridge, they
are once again approaching matrimony. What was the reason behind
reuniting them? Will they make it this time? What role will Daphne play
in Diana's life? In Charlie's?
PK: There will definitely be a wedding this time for Charlie and Kirsten. What
kind of wedding is an open question. Daphne continues to be Diana's mother,
and Charlie and Kirsten will both continue to want the child they share to
have her natural mother nearby. Beyond that I can't say what will happen,
except that it's a very complicated relationship the three adults have, and
it will only get more so, but in ways people probably won't expect.
TKTV: Will the character of Claudia finally be getting her own storyline so
that Lacey Chabert can show off her talents on a more regular basis?
PK: Claudia has always had her own storylines, and this year she will have even
more to do. High School is a very scary and interesting place, and we'll
have as much fun with Claudia's experiences there as we can.
TKTV: Will Owen's learning disability play a part in his storyline this
PK: Not nearly as much as last year, but it won't be forgotten.
TKTV: Is there a show bible? This year contained some major continuity
gaffes (i.e. Nick and Diana attending Owen's first birthday party). Who
makes sure things like that don't happen?
PK: As always, we make every effort to avoid continuity errors. Generating 25
hours of television in ten months is a lot of work, though, and things
invariably slip through the cracks.
