Melissa George On Margot’s Hidden and Calculated Ferocity in ‘The Mosquito Coast’

“I got to go from being a maternal mamma bear to being an assassin almost. I love it!”. Melissa George gets the role of a lifetime in Margot Fox, a former professor on the run with her husband, played by a glinty-eyed Justin Theroux. In Apple TV+’s engrossing new drama series, The Mosquito Coast, Margot and Allie have lived a seemingly quiet life off the grid but something dangerous is lurking behind every corner. Their kids, played by Logan Polish and Gabriel Bateman, are getting older and asking more questions about how their lives aren’t like those of other teenagers. Freedom is always a mirage just out of reach.

‘The Mosquito Coast’ Director and Melissa George on Revealing Margot’s Agency

In the two versions of “The Mosquito Coast” that came before the Apple TV Plus drama (the 1981 novel and the 1986 film adaptation), the character of Allie Fox’s wife and mother to his children was just that and that alone: a wife and mother. But the series, which is being treated as a prequel to the events in the novel, rather than a straight adaptation, puts her in the driver’s seat.

Melissa George interview: ‘The Mosquito Coast’

“As an actress, when I get a role that requires me to be quite tough and menacing, all those things that my face doesn’t look like, I thrive,” admits Melissa George about playing the elusive Margot Fox on Apple TV+ seven-episode dramatic thriller “The Mosquito Coast.” She adds, “It is so much fun to play because that’s not how I am in my own life.” Watch our exclusive video interview above.

Melissa George Has Been Keeping A Lot Of ‘The Mosquito Coast’ Secrets [Interview]

The final episode for Apple TV+’s “The Mosquito Coast” series dropped today and the prequel aspect of the series has, in theory, come to an end. Based on Paul Theroux’s 1981 novel and already renewed for a second season, the first seven episodes find Allie Fox (Justin Theroux), his wife Margot (Melissa George), and their two teenage children on the run from the U.S. government agents for unspecified reasons. The family has traveled across the desert, gotten on the bad side of a Mexican cartel boss, barely escaped a professional assassin, and somehow eluded local authorities at the last possible moment. Creator and executive producer Neil Cross has put the Fox’s through the wringer while tactfully avoiding why they are in such a predicament in the first place. And if you’ve made it this far, you’re probably heavily invested in discovering what is actually going on with this unconventional family.

Why Star Trek: Discovery's Melissa George Could Return To The Franchise After AppleTV+'s The Mosquito Coast

Actress Melissa George took on a seemingly small role when joining the Star Trek: Discovery universe for Season 2, though within the overall scope of the franchise, her role as Vina could prove to be quite substantial. Vina's story as Pike's future lover on the planet Talos was already well-established in Star Trek: The Original Series, but it sounds like the character's tale could possibly be further expanded upon in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (or elsewhere) if she is ever able to reprise her role.
