"Nicole [Beharie] does the exact same thing, from a very different angle. She’s just fierce. She is fierce and she’s a presence and she’s a force. And I think what we loved in the design of the show was the idea of that Mulder-Scully paradigm of Skeptic and Believer…we wanted to turn that on its ear a little bit. It would have been really easy to make Crane the Believer and Abbie the Skeptic – but when the show really opened up for us, it was because we realized that Abbie’s backstory needed to be a bit more insane than Crane’s. And that his presence in her life was touching off something that she had been actively been trying so hard to deny for so long. I think that opened the door because it shifted the paradigm; it made it so that she wasn’t just a skeptic, it was that she’s been working so hard not to believe it because she’s so scared to face her fears, fears that have been there since childhood. And that’s what Crane’s emergence into her life represents. That requires an amazing and poetic combination of utter intensity and real vulnerability. And I think Nicole just radiates that on every level."
