Nathan Fillion's Starlog Interview Available Now

“One of the things I really like about the Serenity’s crew is that each member represents an aspect of Mal Reynolds,” Fillion adds. “Kaylee [Jewel Staite], our mechanic, represents those things that Mal has lost: hope, a wide-eyed wonder at life, the ability to see beauty and happiness everywhere. He has lost all that, and I think that’s one of the reasons he keeps Kaylee around. She keeps it alive for him.”
"Behind the scenes, Fillion gets a kick out of the transformation Baccarin undergoes to become Inara. “Morena is a very nice, relaxed girl, casual and sweet. Then she gets into her outfit and they curl her hair, and she becomes very regal, almost like royalty. It’s a wonderful thing to watch. Inara is the one thing of beauty in Firefly. Her shuttle, and she herself, are the only bits of beauty that we see, and I like that.”"
The only person aboard Serenity that Mal truly trust is Zoe (Gina Torres), Fillion insists. “I like the relationship between Zoe and Mal. The two or them are counterparts; I don’t think either one can function well without the other. They look at each other and Zoe knows exactly what he’s thinking, what needs to be done. She’s so in tune with him that she’s a perfect weapon and an invaluable tool for Malcolm. It’s a good thing that she’s there for him. Gina plays tough without raising her voice, without being mean. She says something and you listen, because of the way she says it.”
