Carly Chaikin talks Mr. Robot Season 2, Darlene’s evolution and more!

Carly Chaikin, who portrays Darlene on USA’s hit series Mr. Robot, sat down with Pop-Break.com for a roundtable interview at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday July 22.

Chaikin is no stranger to the small screen — having stolen audience’s hearts and funny bones on ABC’s cult sitcom Suburgatory. For the past two television seasons, she’s been killing it as Darlene, an fsociety hacker, who we found out in one of the biggest twists of the first season, was in fact our hero Elliott’s (Rami Malek) sister.

Below are the questions the roundtable interviewers asked Chaikin, and the timestamp which he gave his answer:

Question #1: Did you know who you were before you read the script?

Answer #1: 00:10

Question #2: Chaikin was asked about Darlene’s leadership ability and choices in heading F Society.

Answer #2: 1:38

Question #3: Can she hold on to that position?

Answer #3: 2:47

Question #4: A question was posed about Darlene’s relationship with Elliott now that she know he has hallucinations of their deceased father.

Answer #4: 3:30

Question #5: We got to see clips of Elliott’s childhood, but you were never in it, after Darlene’s reveal do you think we will see that?

Answer #5: 4:47

Question #6: Chaikin was asked about her interacting with Mr. Robot.

Answer #6: 5:27

Question #7: When it came to last season’s big hack, you did the key coding, but wasn’t give the credit for the technological part of it, do you find your character is a little undersold as to having equal intelligence to her brother?

Answer #7: 5:57
