Sylvia Hoeks plays the villainous Queen Kane on “See,” and the actor sat down with co-star Christian Camargo, who plays Tamacti, to talk to Collider about how the many forms of communication on the show came about. “There’s a lot of improvisation,” Hoeks said. “We work with a whole group and they have sleeping masks on and I would order them,” she continued.
Here, finger snapping and physical touch became key aspects in building Hoeks’ character and the world of “See.” “We kind of improvised with Queen Kane and Tamacti,” Camargo recalls. “And Sylvia, just in an improvisation, did some arm motions on Tamacti, and we embraced those motions,” he continued.
The two then explained how these creative inventions by Hoeks would eventually influence other aspects of communication in See. In particular, Hoeks and Camargo pointed out that they became a prayer of honor used by Queen Kane’s army. “These are all sound gestures, you can hear the rhythm,” Camargo clarified in reference to the prayer of honor.
Well, they say necessity is the mother of invention, and it sounds like the need to develop believable forms of communication in a world of vision has made the cast and crew of “See” quite inventive, as they are on the show expressed.
