World-building is my favorite pastime, so with me, I’m always about reining myself in. I don’t want to lose too much of the mystery by hammering every detail to death. I did fiddle with lots of maps for ‘Glass Sword,’ as the second installment sees Mare, Cal and company traveling throughout their country, and that’s always fun for me.

Maven is very much a haunting presence in ‘Glass Sword.’ His influence is everywhere, and he dogs Mare and Cal like no other. He’s my favorite character to write because he’s so complex, but also because he affects everyone else so deeply. He’s kind of like the source of gravity. Everyone moves around him and what he’s done.

What’s amazing is everyone knows who Spider-Man is. We were filming in a Chicano community and standing side by side were a Cal Tech lab technician and a six-year-old boy, and both of them were in awe of the character. In fact, you might say he’s an equal opportunity fantasy hero.

Ken Griffey Jr.

I went to a Cal Tech party after the ‘Facebook’ movie came out, and there were kids in dark rooms coding because it was cool again. That movie made it cool to sit in a room at a party and write code.

When I first started acting in college, at Cal, the thing that I loved about acting was not being onstage but going into rehearsals. The thing, as I look back on it now, that I was most attracted to, was that I felt like I’d found my family. It was just a bunch of loonies.

When I got to Cal, they tried to put me in safe classes, things I could succeed at. I went to Cal for an education. That’s definitely problematic. You see athletes taking majors that don’t add up to anything.
