'Now Apocalypse': Meet Carly and Severine, the show's lead women who are not afraid to flaunt their sexuality
Carly cams in her free time for pocket money while Severine is against monogamy since she believes monogamy is a form of social control
The upcoming Gregg Araki show 'Now Apocalypse' has a lot going for it including the lead women of the show. A recently released teaser puts the spotlight on Ford's (Beau Mirchoff) girlfriend Severine (Roxane Mesquida) and Ulysses' (Avan Jogia) best friend Carly (Kelli Berglund). It also reiterates that Uly's world is not a sane place and his friends are one of the many reasons why. Previously, we saw his best friend Ford and his boyfriend and got an inkling of an idea of who they are and what they do. In this video, it is all about Severine and Carly.
We know that Carly cams in her free time for pocket money and also believes that as a millennial sexual fluidity is kind of a requirement. She comes across as a confident young woman, who knows what she wants. Until of course, she tries her hand at BDSM and realizes that this is an all new avenue for her. She doesn't know much about it. Even as she cams, she orders the person on the other side, 'Get on your knees' for a fulfilling experience. But there is a lot of frustration when she says it. She is ready to explore, but not everything might go her way. It is also clear that while Uly is the one who has 'premonitions', he is not the only character arc that you would be invested in.
In one of the scenes, we even see Carly dressed in hot red, bodysuit and opposite her is a man who is wearing bunny ears, baby bib and boxers. But it doesn't look like she likes what just happened. We just get a glimpse, but her expressions speak enough.
The new teaser also reveals that Severine is clearly against monogamy. She says, "You know I believe that monogamy is a form of social control." Her boyfriend, Ford, of course, has no clue what she means. Beau Mirchoff plays the not very bright, but great looking best friend of Uly's. All he knows is that there is no cheating when it comes to his relationship. A lot about Severine is not revealed in these teasers and for now we know she is an astrobiological theorist. Of course, her demeanor does signal that there could be something fishy about her that she hasn't revealed to her boyfriend.
But under 20 seconds, we are convinced that the two women in 'Now Apocalypse' are worth watching out for. The series will premiere on March 10 on Starz and will also star Tyler Posey as Avan Jogia's boyfriend.
