Yes, I feel so hard for Jo as well. I don’t even know what to say. When I was looking at those latest pictures of her I saw her pain. And she actually felt pain about this, you can see it in her eyes.
She knows her character best. She does. She is the actor who impersonated Myka for all those years. She does know what Myka does when she is nervous. When she is interested. What she does when she loves and how she behaves when she hates. And Jo is bloody right by saying that Myka would choose work.
I mean… I wrote a goddamn cheesy fanfiction about Helena and Myka having a magical baby. And I still say that this is fucked up on so many levels. This feels so wrong. This is so wrong.
I currently can’t really put my feelings about this into proper words. Except for: Sorry Joanne Kelly, that people made you play this. Sorry that you weren’t allowed to have a word about that. Sorry that they took away that part of your character you liked most - the fact that she wasn’t defined by this particular trope they are forcing onto her now
Because Myka Bering deserves more than that. Warehouse 13 deserves more than that. The actors and writers and everyone who did this wonderful show deserve more than that.
It’s not Jo’s show. She didn’t create the character. She didn’t write her. She needs to get the fuck over it if she’s bothered by it.
