Danica and Carrera don’t precisely belief one another however they “agree on trade only,” Torben famous. “They don’t agree on any sort of other principle or system of value.” Lela weighed in on how belief (or lack thereof) influences the characters of Altered Carbon. “I think what’s wonderful about the world is that all these characters are having to rely on each other without trust,” Lela stated.
Torben added, “It’s so beautifully crafted just how the real agendas of the characters are revealed over the course of the season.” Lela confused that belief is a “really prominent theme” that runs by the present in season 2. “You just hit on a theme that sort of underscores all the storylines,” Lela stated and Torben added, “You hit the hornet’s nest.”
