Spoilers for Celebrity Trek: Picard episode four apply.
Celebrity Trek: Picard has slowly pieced in combination its staff over the process its first few episodes. In episode 4, ‘Absolute Candor’, we met its latest member: the sword-wielding Elnor, a Romulan raised in the world Vashti by way of the Qowat Milat, a bunch of warrior nuns. In a rash second in opposition to the tip of the episode, Elnor beheads a person with the purpose of saving Picard, a brutal consequence that JL is not pleased with. Nevertheless, it leads to Elnor departing the planet with Picard, able to apply him on the remainder of his adventure.
We spoke with actor Evan Evagora about Elnor’s tale in episode 4, and what we will be expecting from the nature for the remainder of the season. “He will get right into a battle with Picard, and he finally ends up beheading a person he is identified since he used to be seven or 8 years of age,” Evagora says “He kills for the first actual time on this episode, and we see him processing that kind of second. We see him develop up somewhat bit, and we additionally see him in spite of everything go away the planet he is been caught on for 10 or 12 years. He will get to in spite of everything take to the celebrities, and move in this superb journey, and spot this international he is best ever heard about and dreamt about. He is in spite of everything on his trail to changing into who he is supposed to be.”
The episode establishes that Picard has identified Elnor since he used to be a tender boy, so this can be a drastic changing in their dating. “They have got were given just a little of a rocky dating. It is been a while since they have observed every different,” Evagora says.
“Elnor’s were given a large number of questions for Picard: why he left him, I suppose he feels very deserted by way of him. And the article about Elnor is, he is an orphan, and he perspectives Picard as a father determine. What occurs when that particular person up and leaves out of your existence, you realize? He is coping with all that, after which this guy re-enters his existence once more, and we simply select up from that second and handle Elnor and Picard’s response to that.”
The Romulans are in a tricky state of affairs in Celebrity Trek: Picard, having been displaced by way of the supernova first observed in 2009’s JJ Abrams Celebrity Trek movie. Evagora believes Elnor provides a special standpoint on Romulans than we are used to seeing in Trek. “He is very a lot suffering from what is came about to his homeworld. With him, I discovered that even if I had to return and do a little analysis for the function, I discovered after I were given given the script and spoke to the writers, particularly Michael Chabon [Picard’s showrunner], I discovered what I knew about Romulan tradition I needed to throw out the window. He shines a mild and offers us a special standpoint on Romulans than we’ve got in reality ever observed ahead of.”

Celebrity Trek: Picard is cautious to depict Romulans with actual intensity in what are plainly politically turbulent instances for the folk. Now we have observed a variety of Laris and Zhaban this season, for instance, either one of which reside with and are hired by way of Picard on his winery.
“Again in TNG, with Worf, how the Klingons have been clearly enemies, Worf entering the display confirmed that no longer they all are evil, no longer they all are dangerous,” Evagora says. “I believe Elnor shines that gentle at the Romulans.”
‘Absolute Candor’ ends with Elnor on-board Los angeles Sirena, able to proceed on with Picard of their seek for Soji, Dahj’s dual. We ask Evagora how Elnor will have interaction with the opposite staff individuals, given his very other background. “He is clearly a overdue addition to the send, and everyone already has some type of a dating, and this child rocks up. It will be attention-grabbing, the dynamic he has with the entire different characters, despite the fact that he is very a lot the similar intrusive particular person particularly in terms of social interactions. It is more or less endearing concurrently being traumatic [laughs].”
Evagora may not be drawn on main points of the way his persona develops in the remainder of Picard season one, best that it may not be predictable. “You are going to have to attend and in finding out. It is not what you are expecting, despite the fact that. I am most probably going to have to go away it at that.”
