Creating Memorable Characters: Girl Crushing on Fish Mooney

Posted on

It is hard to turn on the television and find a character that is so flawed, so nuanced that she is almost perfect.  These roles are equally difficult to come by for women, without painting them as scheming, money hungry witches who wants the big man so they can spend his money and live a life of luxury.

Enter Fish Mooney.

She wants to be in control because she is evil and power hungry. She doesn’t do it to be on the arm of some man, but she will take off a man’s arm.

I think I am in love.
