Me after reading The first episode of season 2 @umbrellaacad
This was right before @rozzymikes threw the cake at our camera guy.
Gerard. You tall glass of water. ❤️ Repost from @gerardway Number 2 AKA Diego Hargreeves AKA The Kraken OK, here’s the next character exploration. Firstly, I LOVE what they did with Diego in the show. His relationship with Mom is wonderful, and is one of the beating hearts of the series. It’s an improvement I welcomed gladly. So Diego, he’s got it tough. He has to be Number 2. In the comic, he can just hold his breath as long as he wants, but in the show, he can throw knives in an unnatural way. I do hope they will explore his power of being able to hold his breath as long as he wants, and I know David Casteneda, the amazing actor that plays him, would like to explore that. It kind of turns him into a gritty, knife-throwing Aquaman, which I think is fun. Now, let’s go deeper. His relationship to Luther— they are important to each other. Hargreeves numbered Diego Number 2 because one of the things that drives Number one is the tension between him and Diego. I could see one of Hargreeves’ notes being “Number 2 hates Number 1. Let’s explore this.”. Diego’s obvious resentment and competition toward Luther pushed them both to be better. This is important— Sometimes the people that challenge us the most provide the opportunity for the most growth, and become our greatest teachers. But it isn’t all about Luther. Diego is on a journey of his own. Diego had to leave the house so he could be Diego and not just “Number 2”. And the only place being Number One got Luther at the end of the day was living alone on the moon. Maybe they’ll learn the numbers don’t matter, as Five did, which is why I feel he embraced his number as a name instead of a rank, and rejected an actual name (which I hope we see one day! ). Diego is relentless. His sense of duty and his dedication to justice is unparalleled in the academy. He’s a beast. He is played wonderfully by @castenedawong , who has talked to me about how he wants to further embody the character, and my favorite moment of his is when he is outside the academy with Klaus after “something happens to Mom” (no spoilers ) and he starts to stutter. My heart broke. Lots of love. #umbrellaacademy #darkhorsecomics
Sorry Jayhouse. @umbrellaacad
They asked similarities in the character. Tight pants. @statusmagazine
