Whedonopolis interviews me about Star Trek: Picard

On how we approached the inner world of the Romulans for Star Trek: Picard:

“The actors and I learned as much as we could about Romulans, which included having Michael Chaban, the showrunner, write bios on the characters. That backstory and history were invaluable for giving them an inner life. We had some rehearsal time to talk through things, try things, and make decisions like, should Orla use her Irish accent? If so, what does that mean? And we played around with their relationship to Picard, which was informed by their history. We approached it like you would any character, making sure there’s lots of richness and complexities.”
