Cameron Monaghan isn’t solely returning to ‘Shameless’ for season 10, he’s additionally the star of the brand new sport ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.’ HL spoke with Cameron about what’s forward for Ian and Mickey, Cal’s arc within the sport, and extra.
Cameron Monaghan might be making his massive return to Shameless within the Nov. 17 episode. The actor left the present in season 9 however is coming again to the hit Showtime collection full time in season 10. The final time we noticed Ian, he was reunited along with his longtime love Mickey in jail. Cameron spoke with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about Gallavich in season 10 whereas selling his new sport Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
“We kind of pick up with them exactly where we left off with Ian and Mickey in prison together. We learn that it’s very difficult to be in a 6×10 room with someone that you love and you have that passionate relationship with,” Cameron mentioned. “They’re two very stubborn, hard-headed characters. We’re watching them kind of clash against each other simply because of proximity and the nature of their relationship. So they’re kind of like a bickering old couple and there’s a lot of comedy about that because the things they’re bickering about are shiv-ing a person. And then as we explore the season with them, we get to see them face really fully being in a relationship in a way that they up to this point just never have been able to do and that means they’re certain big questions that they get to kind of ask for the first time.”
Ian will finally get launched from jail and he’s going to must adapt to the modifications on the skin. “What I think is very interesting is when you’re in prison for any amount of time the world continues to go on without you and you kind of come into things that are slightly unfamiliar now,” Cameron continued. “Lip having a kid, Fiona leaving, the status quo is being shifted and just the fact that people kind of continue to move past you without your presence and that’s something that we explore as well as a separation from someone you love… It’s a really great year. I’m really happy with it.”
Cameron additionally stars as Cal Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which is on the market now. He teased Cal’s evolution over the course of the epic sport. “We form of meet him to start with when he’s in a little bit of a determined time in his life,” Cameron revealed. “He survived the Jedi purge and most of what he knew or loved was executed and torn away from him. He’s spent the next number of years being on a scrap planet doing junkyard work just keeping his head down, so when we first meet him he’s got a real chip on his shoulder. He doesn’t want to develop too deep of a connection with other people. He doesn’t have an overall purpose in life besides just survive. Over the course of the story, we see him develop these connections and relationships with these characters and kind of develop this team of outcasts that are on this mission together, which I feel that’s the core of what Star Wars is but from there we see him challenged and pushed to the edge of things from his past kind of coming back as well as new challenges that he has to face. Some of those push him to the brink and we kind of watch him learn and grown and become more powerful and kind of develop his relationships as well as his relationship to himself and his past. It’s a story of growth. It’s kind of like a coming of age story for him.”
Cameron’s efficiency was finished solely utilizing movement seize. He admitted it was a “very cool” expertise but additionally “very weird.” He filmed in a velcro go well with and had ball markers throughout him and a digicam connected to him however he wasn’t “constrained by a physical set” in the identical means he could be on a standard TV or movie challenge. “There are certain things you have to do with motion capture that you just don’t have to do in anything else,” Cameron instructed HollywoodLife. “You have to strike what’s called a ‘z pose’ before and after the scene every single take. All takes have to be done for these scenes completely in one just like you were doing like a play or something like that. There’s no cutting, no picking something up, and the suits themselves are slightly cumbersome if you’re in a scene where you’re like hugging or touching someone. You might get stuck to each other and they’re kind of noisy. You might slap cameras. We had plenty of times where we were head-butting each other and stuff which is, obviously, something you would never be able to tell but it took a bit of learning.”
