Both of your characters definitely start out as Imperials. Did any of you do anything to adjust to being a menacing character in the evil empire? Have any of you been influenced by specific Star Wars villains that we’ve seen before?

Gough: No, because I had never seen Star Wars. I knew about Darth Vader, of course, and I knew about Palpatine because I worked with Ian McDiarmid [on the London stage in “Six Characters in Search of an Author”]. I knew there were bad guys and good guys and the dark side and the light side, but I wasn’t a fan of any of that stuff. But I’ll tell you who had a profound influence on me as a TV villain – Gus Fring from Breaking Bad and that sense of meticulous detail and cleanliness he has in his actions.

When I got to Dedra it was just as obvious as when she finally met Syril. They see kindred spirits in each other, that kind of obsessive-compulsive disorder: “I need things to get better. I need things that are really, really excellent.” But for me it was better [coming into the series] in that I wasn’t one to be totally influenced by Star Wars because I approached it the way I would approach a new play I’m working on.

It’s like new writing, great writing. It’s just that it’s “Star Wars”. That was the amazing thing. I didn’t think it was right for me until I read the first three scripts and I’m not even into it [the episodes]. I thought, “Oh, no, wait a minute. This isn’t science fiction. It’s brilliantly written, and it’s Star Wars. It’s only in the last few days that I’ve suddenly realized that I’m actually in “Star Wars”.
