SDCC 2017 | Interview with STITCHERS’ Emma Ishta and Kyle Harris

STITCHERS stars Emma Ishta and Kyle Harris sit down to talk about their characters and their relationship on the show.

Stitchers star Emma Ishta got to speak about her character’s ability to process emotions this season, which is still a work in progress for Kirsten. “It takes her a little more time to process things and get over things than the average person. Eventually I think she’ll come around. But she’s still figuring out feelings.” 

As far as playing Kirsten, it was more challenging for Emma to play her without emotions. “It’s not natural to not respond and to not react. But I really enjoyed that, but I kinda miss that challenge sometimes.”

Kyle Harris, who plays Cameron, adds that he doesn’t miss the emotionless Kirsten, “because I get to act off of emotions!” Saying to Emma, “I know what you’re doing and you’re doing a great job, but I get nothing out of this robot girl.”

In regards to their characters’ relationship, they talk about how much fun it is.  “It’s really fun. We have a great time filming together. We get to do so much. It’s where all of the, the heart of the show lives. Getting to play all the variations of like, ‘they love each other,’ ‘they hate each other,’ ‘they kinda like each other.’ It’s just fun.”

Harris adds the more they are together, “the goofier they are together, the more honest it is, because that’s just kinda how we are as two individuals, as actors, so I think that resonates. When you can see them having fun, I think we off the vibe that they probably get along off set, too.” 

They did tease a little bit on the episode that was shown this past Monday, but there was something very different and exciting about it, and if you have seen it, you can probably watch it again. Harris says that in episode 7, “you have to watch it very closely. Or if not, it’s one of those episodes you’re going to want to go back because you’ll piece it together.” 

Stitchers airs Mondays at 9pm on Freeform.
