Torchwood’s Eve Myles | Under the Radar - Music Magazine
www.undertheradarmag.com, 30 Sept 2014 [cached]
Gwen Cooper, the secret government agent that Myles plays on the British sci-fi show Torchwood, was pregnant with an alien baby last season, so Myles jokes that her mother was especially pleased to know fiction wasn't bleeding over to reality.
...
Gwen finds herself in many a situation where a karate chop could come in handy.
...
Gwen is a Cardiff police officer who is recruited by Torchwood in the first episode.
...
Do you think if they do a fourth season of Torchwood they'd work it in for Gwen to have a baby?
I think that's incredibly possible. I think that with the development of this series there's a massive possibility that will happen with the next series. It's a very brave thing for them to do. It would make things incredibly difficult for Gwen. But I do hope it'd highlight what a great woman she is as well, to juggle saving the world and being a mother at the same time, I think it would be an awesome thing to happen.
...
And you see the Torchwood heroes being tighter than ever, with loosing two strong characters it's really tightened up the nuts and bolts of Gwen, Jack, and Ianto to become an incredible working machine, the three of them.
...
Cool. How does Gwen, as a character, change and grow over the course of the five episodes?
Well I think that even from the first season there has to be huge development in Gwen in every season.
...
So everything they see is kind of taken with a pinch of salt-like Gwen working as a police officer walking in to work and preparing herself a cup of tea. They walk into Torchwood and they're having a scrap with a Weevil, it's just as normal as that. Gwen is constantly evolving and learning and getting stronger and becoming more the second in lead, second in command.
...
Why do you think Gwen as a character sticks with Torchwood and puts herself in danger. My point being that she has Rhys and the other members of the team don't have a significant other, and Owen and Toshiko have just died obviously. What keeps her going in the team? Why doesn't she just leave?
Because she knows if she leaves, Torchwood isn't going to finish. Torchwood isn't going to end. And if she leaves, it's about her closing the door on something, and closing her eyes on something and pretending that it's not there, and that's just not Gwen. She adores Torchwood because it's exciting. It's life changing-every day she gets to see the most extraordinary things, supernatural, extraterrestrial. She works with a man who can't die for God's sake. That man, he's absolutely beautiful. She's got the best job in the world.
...
And that's the character now that they've connected Gwen Cooper with, that they're related. And she died while protecting the rift.
...
So the kind of grieving process is dealt with in that so when you come into season three, it's about Torchwood being an organization, being Jack, Gwen, and Ianto and, my goodness, within seconds of the credits going down, bang, there's straight into action.
...
But if people will always remember me as Gwen Cooper, it's always good to be remembered on a show that was as successful as Torchwood, I'll be very proud of that anyway.

About Gwen Cooper
Gwen Cooper was originally a police officer but now works for Torchwood. She lives with her boyfriend, Rhys Williams, who is a transport manager. Gwen met Torchwood when she was investigating a murder organised by Suzie Costello. Gwen never gave up, she wanted to know what Torchwood was and what they were hiding. Jack eventually offered Gwen a job knowing the team needed someone with a more caring and sensitive side.
...
When the Goverment attempted to destroy Torchwood and all of its members Rhys and Gwen went on the run.
...
Rhys helped Gwen, Jack and Ianto stop the 456 threat.

Marital Status: Engaged to Gwen ...

Marital Status: Engaged to Gwen Cooper
...
Rhys Williams is Gwen Cooper's boyfriend, who later becomes her fiancee. Like most on Earth, he believed that the alien interference with Earth was mass hallucinations, induced by terrorists putting drugs into the water supply. Though, since being with Gwen, he's learned that that isn't the truth. He is more than her man though.
...
If Gwen is the heart of the show, making them have to remember and be human, then Rhys is her rock. He keeps her grounded and realizing there is more to life than just hunting aliens.
Rhys is loyal to Gwen. He loves her, unconditionally. He puts up with the late hours and other pressures of her job at Torchwood. He is the ordinary man, the normal person. He can say what he thinks from an outside perspective. He would rather not get involved, but he won't run away from it either. He puts up with an awful lot from Gwen, but he would never leave her. One thing he does have, at least a little bit, is insecurity and jealousy towards Jack.
...
Unknown to Rhys, Gwen establishes a sexual relationship with Owen at the end of "Countrycide" to help herself deal with her two lives at home and at work.
...
In "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang", it is revealed that Rhys proposed to Gwen sometime between the two series.
...
* To have Rhys and Gwen get married and extend their family (with Gwen's permission, must discuss that with her) * To have Rhys learn about Torchwood and play a bigger role, if necessary, meditated by plot ideas. * I see Rhys and Gwen as possibly buying a house and doing some renovations on it, very normal manly things, to offset Gwen and her sci fi things. Where she is the Torchwood field agent, he is the normal other half. To give Gwen a normal something to come home to at the end of the day.
...
Gwen was a copper and I was a manager at the haulage company. Well, okay, so I'm still a manager there, but… Everything else? Different. She gets a promotion and suddenly, she's not a copper anymore. Not by the traditional standards. Now? Now she's 'special ops' and sporting a whole new wardrobe. She's hiding something, but I just don't know what it is. You know, I actually wondered if she's having an affair? It killed me to even consider it, too. Gwen and I have never had no secrets. We've never lied or anything of that sort.
So she works for a government agency and she has all these things she has to do. She loves her job and she is helping people. That's what really matters. I don't care what she does, as long as she's happy doing it. So why does it bother me so much that she won't tell me about it?
