At New York Comic-Con, The Daily Quirk sat down at a roundtable with Emily Hampshire, who plays Jennifer Goines in Syfy’s 12 Monkeys. In a very animated interview, she shared where she drew her original inspiration from when auditioning for her new role, and discussed the similarities and differences between the show and the movie version of 12 Monkeys, in which her character was originally a man played by Brad Pitt. “It’s completely new and completely the same in this weird way,” Hampshire described. Hampshire also admitted she was not always into the sci-fi genre. Now however, she has embraced her new love for everything sci-fi and time travel, and is on her way to becoming a DeLorean (Back to the Future lover). For all of that and more, check out the video below!
