The Vast Amazon Behind the Scenes Rocinante Tour with Avasarala

Greetings Chrissie. Image: Amazon Studios

So what if the Rocinante isn’t exactly Avasarala’s stomping grounds this season? The impeccably dressed, wonderfully foul-mouthed UN Secretary-General of The Expanse, played by the unique Shohreh Aghdashloo, has stuck to diplomatic ships so far in season six (read our summaries of the first two episodes for details). Even then, she’s the perfect guide to the series’ ever-heroic ship.

Who doesn’t remember “donkey balls”, Shohreh?? (I also noticed that the writers really fired James Holdencoffee obsession…think he has more pressing things on his mind these days.) It’s really cool to see you again how much of the set actually exists in real life, not just in CG country.

While it still annoys me that the sixth and final season of The Expanse runs only six episodes, at least we get “X-Ray” Bonus Content with each episode (if you haven’t seen them yet, and you’re in the mood to have your heart ripped out by Drummer in particular, I highly recommend checking them out!), as well as behind-the-scenes nuggets like these.
