“Lydia is the constant survivor politician. There’s a reason that somebody like Lydia has survived so long in this world when, frankly, she’s not a fighter,” Co-Creator and Executive Produdcer Al Gough says.
Tilda isn’t sure she can trust Lydia after her betrayal, but Lydia accuses Tilda of being too naive. “Lydia sees Tilda very much as a daughter figure, very much as somebody who she sees potential in, likes a lot and thinks could be a very credible leader in the future,” says Orla Brady.
But Tilda won’t be much of anything if she can’t learn how to “play the game.” “We all need people to kind of be like, ‘Look, this is the way it is,'” says Ally Ioannides, on how Lydia’s words sink in for Tilda.
