This past weekend, our staff writer Britt Knupper had a chance to sit down with the cast of Archer to talk about their upcoming tenth season. Jessica Walter has been gracing us with the witty one-liners of the incorrigible Mallory Archer from the beginning, and we were pleased to learn that although she may take a different form this season in Archer:1999, we can expect the same level of sass.
Jessica was pretty esoteric about Mallory’s role this season, describing her as an “orb” with the potential to be a “ball of light.” This was concerning, as how exactly is a ball of light supposed to consume alcohol to the levels we are used to seeing with her character? She assured us with a smile “Don’t worry — if there is no martinis, there is no Mallory.”
She also added that regardless of her characters form, the one thing that never changes? Mallory’s love of Archer, even if she does not know how to show it.
