“What’s Emma’s relationship like with her parents now?
Morrison: Everything that we’ve gone through has informed them getting closer and closer. She’s also very excited for them to be having a child because she knows they never had a chance to raise her. She wants that for them. She’s being told she has something to do with breaking this new curse, so a lot of Emma’s motivation is that she wants to solve this so she can take Henry back to New York and keep him safe there.
You say that Emma is happy for her parents getting to have another child. Is there any part of her that’s a little bit jealous that this new baby gets the life that she didn’t get?
Morrison: That’s a tough question. That sensation definitely has not come up in me as Emma in terms of the scenes that we’ve done that address the issue. I’ve looked to see if that was there at all, but it hasn’t instinctively come up. I do think part of that may be a self-defensive mechanism in her. She doesn’t know what she missed out on because she doesn’t know any different than what her life was. It’s hard to be jealous of what you don’t understand."
