What is it about Stana that brought this version of Lois to the table?
Andrea Romano: It’s a… Lois is always a very tough character to cast in that she has to be strong. She’s an investigative reporter, so she’s used to being, you know, playing with the boys. She’s tough, she’s the one to get the answers, she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty to get the story. But there’s gotta be a soft vulnerability to her too that would make somebody love her like Clark Kent. And so Stana, had that and we’ve seen that on camera, we’ve seen her do that work.
And the other thing about working with someone like Nathan [Fillion] is I’m not afraid to call up Nathan Fillion and say, “Nathan, how is so and so to work with?” And there’s a couple of actors that I’ve used whose names maybe aren’t recognizable, but they’ve been on the show on Castle as like a guest. And I’ll call up and go, “That guy’s voice is so great. It’s raspy and he always plays these bad guys and how is he to work with?” And Nathan will text me back real quick, “Great guy, my new best friend, hire him in a minute.” You know?"
Can I just point out that Nathan is proper grooming himself here!;) Gotta make sure those beautiful locks are looking perfect!
“He’s funny. He’s very nice, very kind. We didn’t realize that we were both Canadians until we had both been cast. It was nice to sort of bond over these Canadianisms that we would squeeze out every now and then. He’s a sweetheart an absolute sweetheart. He’s lovely, it’s true. He really is a lot like his character, it’s great! He’s adorable. He tortures me sometimes by bringing me wine gums from Canada, because he knows that I’m addicted, but apart from that he’s a pussycat! (laughs) He’s super funny, loves to make other people laugh. We have a great time working together.”
“I’m grateful for that - I’m grateful for the writing that they create, and I hope that they continue to just be respectful of the strength that that character has. You know, she’s not just a doting girlfriend; she’s also a cop. She’s a pretty phenomenal woman, and it’s wonderful to be able to play that character.”

Thank you to all the cast and crew for 100 spectacular episodes. The fandom is so lucky to have a group of individuals who love the show just as much as we do because it shows each and every week. I just love this show so much!
