“It’s kind of a messy mixture of pride, that these are his genes and his offspring are having these abilities,” said Williams, “but there’s also this healthy dose of fear because he’s been where he’s been and it’s taken a toll. It has torn up his family to a certain degree. He’s seen people lose their lives by having these abilities. There’s that fear of not wanting his daughters to travel down the same road as him, but also over the course of the series before those things come to light, the whole family goes on a journey that informs how each of us are affected when those abilities come to light.”
