Karen Page found herself in a lonely state of mind at the beginning of the third season of “Daredevil,” but according to actress Deborah Ann Woll, it’s been a journey “towards one of independence.” And that’s something she’d like to solve if the series returns for another season.
“Karen’s always been sort of a lonely figure,” Woll told TheWrap in an on-camera interview (above). At the beginning of the Netflix-Marvel drama’s third season, one of her friends is holed up with his fancy new job and girlfriend, while the other is presumed dead.
“With Foggy (Elden Henson) living the good life with this great job and wonderful girlfriend, and Matt (Charlie Cox) is ‘dead,’ Karen’s really on her own,” she said. “I think Karen thinks she deserves that, that because of her past and the things she’s done she probably doesn’t deserve a lasting relationship.”‘
Those “past things” include murdering Wilson Fisk’s (Vincent D’Onofrio) right-hand man James Wesley (Toby Leonard Moore) toward the end of season 1. And, as we find out this season, crashing the car that ends up killing her brother, Kevin. That’s a lot of guilt to hold on to.
But by the end of season 3, Matt (once again among the living), Foggy and Karen are all back together, even teasing the return of the Nelson & Murdock law firm that disbanded midway through the second season.
That supposed happy ending should make viewers feel like they got some sort of closure to the trio’s story (not so much if you’re a Bullseye fan, however), given that Netflix has canceled fellow Marvel series “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage” and has yet to renew “Daredevil” for a fourth season.
But if the show does come back, Woll has a few ideas for her character. “I don’t get to work with women a lot on this series,” she said. “I think it would be really wonderful to have another female character come in that specifically Karen could work side-by-side with.”
