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.
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.
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
knows if she
isn't going to finish.
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
because it's exciting.
It's life changing-every day she
gets to see the most extraordinary things, supernatural, extraterrestrial.
works with a man who can't die for God's sake.
That man, he'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.
