Behind the Scenes: The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

It's time to go behind the scenes of Rookie Blue season two with exclusive commentary from the cast and creators of the show. This week, Executive Producer and Writer Tassie Cameron and new star Peter Mooney (Officer Nick Collins) talk about introducing his character.

 

Tassie Cameron: EP/Writer
It was interesting with your character, because we didn't want to do just the standard cocky soldier. It's tricky not to fall into those kinds of clichés. We wanted to do a different kind of guy—someone different than a wild-card kind of soldier.

Peter Mooney: Officer Nick Collins
And you couldn't double up, he couldn't be too much like anyone else already on the show.

Tassie Cameron: EP/Writer
Look at you, you're walking like a soldier.

Peter Mooney: Officer Nick Collins
PM: Yeah, I tried to stand extra upright.

Tassie Cameron: EP/Writer
You don't walk like that in real life, do you?

Peter Mooney: Officer Nick Collins
No, Nick Collins is actually an inch taller than I am, so I really try to capture that.

Tassie Cameron: EP/Writer
It was fun having your character there, not knowing who anybody was. I hope it's helpful to new viewers.

Peter Mooney: Officer Nick Collins
Then you don't have to invent a device to introduce people to viewers who are meeting them for the first time.
