The following contains spoilers for S2 of A Discovery of Witches, streaming now on Sundance Now, Shudder and AMC+
For two seasons, Teresa Palmer has brought Diana Bishop, a witch whose magic seems to know no bounds, to radiant life on A Discovery of Witches. And in Season 2, Diana discovered new sides of herself as she magically traveled to Elizabethan London with her vampire partner, Matthew De Clermont.
Palmer thrillingly depicted Diana’s growth into a woman to be reckoned with as she pursued the mysterious Book of Life, learned to harness her vast power and deepened her relationship with Matthew.
In an exclusive interview with CBR, Palmer looked back on her character’s journey in Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches, shared some behind-the-scenes secrets and revealed what she’s especially looking forward to fans seeing in the series’ upcoming third and final season.
CBR: Diana has evolved a lot in a very short amount of time in Season 2. What have you appreciated most about playing her?
Teresa Palmer: Yeah, Diana has been on quite the journey over a very short period of time. Well, look, I definitely gravitate to a strong female character, and she’s the strongest. She’s fierce, but she’s also really vulnerable and open and flawed and layered and complex. And I love all the colors of who she is because, to me, that’s real life. You can be strong, but you can also be scared. And you can be brave, and you can also be fearful. So I love that she can be all those things and they can coexist within her. So that’s really wonderful.
