WetPaint: Malese Jow on Julia Growing Closer to Roman & the Cyper’s Side Effects

Tonight’s episode of Star-Crossed is a big one for Emery’s (Aimee Teegarden) bestie Julia (Malese Jow). Thanks to Roman and the miraculous healing powers of the Cyper herb, she’s been cured of her terminal illness, which means she’s finally able to be a normal teen girl. And, of course, her first plan of action as a normal, healthy high schooler is attending the school carnival. Wetpaint Entertainment chatted with Malese Jow ahead of Episode 2 (“These Violent Delights Have Violent Ends”) and we got the scoop on what to expect this season — from Julia and Roman’s special connection, to the stellar fashion, and a potential romance for Julia!

We’re so happy your character survived the first episode because for a minute, it looked like you were about to be killed off another CW show.
It was so cruel for all the Vampire Diaries fans who were watching. They were like, “This can’t be happening again!” So we had fun with that. It was interesting. [Laughs.]

Is Julia going to start to suspect that something happened that night? Because she made quite the miraculous recovery.
She is! Something happens between the two of them that sets off her suspicions. It’s outlandish, but she’s so into the Atrians, and knows so much more about them than a normal person would, that she doesn’t think it’s too far off to suspect that. So that definitely progresses, and she finally confronts Roman for some answers. They end up sharing this secret for a while because if anyone else knew about it, it could put tons of people in danger — not only Emery and the people close to them, but the whole Atrian race as well. Julia definitely has a heart for the Atrians, so that’s the last thing she would want. She tries to keep that secret for as long as possible.

It sounds like her and Roman are going to have this unique friendship.
Yeah. They’re kind of partners in crime. And that causes friction between Roman and Emery and Julia and Emery because she has no idea what’s going on. So it’s interesting to see that play out.

When it comes to the Roman vs. Grayson debate, it’s safe to say that Julia is on Team Roman, right?
Oh yeah. Julia is definitely Team Roman. Emery and Roman are her OTP, as people online would say. As soon as Julia returns to school with Emery, she gets to be in the middle of that with her. I definitely think she wants them together.

Entertainment Weekly: Malese talks Julia’s ‘side effects’, an upcoming love interest, & more

Last week, viewers were introduced to the alien-invaded world of The CW’s Star-Crossed. There, we met protagonist Emery, a high schooler who had spent most of her life in the hospital thanks to an immune deficiency. And on the day she was finally allowed to return to normal life, so were seven Atrians, the alien species that the government had previously kept segregated from the rest of the world. But when Emery and her best friend, the still-sick Julia, invaded The Sector in hopes of finding the Atrians’ secret healing plant, things got interesting.

By episode’s end, Emery had started a flirtation with Atrian Roman, who then used the healing plant, called Cyper, to help Julia. So what now? For starters: Fewer hospitals. For the rest, we caught up with Malese Jow (who plays Julia) to talk about what the season holds for Emery’s best friend, and more:

First, is Julia 100 percent healed?
Yes! We dive into the next episode and it’s a miraculous thing. Julia’s just so blindsided and no one knows how it happened. She’s called “the miracle girl,” and people are freaking out wanting to run more tests on her because she is 100 percent better. So no one has any idea, Julia herself doesn’t know until she has an encounter with Roman and some side effects start showing. And Julia, being the Atrian enthusiast that she is, immediately starts putting the pieces together.

You mentioned side effects. What can you tell us about those?
We saw Roman’s arm glowing whenever he used the Cyper, so the same thing kind of happens with the person who received it. People are going to have to tune in and see what else happens because the blue kind of spreads, the glowing blue, which isn’t a good thing for a human trying to keep a secret for an Atrian.

So you’re going to look like an Avatar.
Pretty much! It’s not really a good look. On top of that, people already are hesitant about the Atrians in general, so if they knew that things like that were going around, the Atrians would become lab rats. And Julia really has a heart for the Atrians, and immediately she really has a bond with Roman, so she really wants to keep that secret for them.
