'Q&A with Director Brad Goodchild' -- Round III.

We continue to re-post the first four fan-questions and the director's answers to them as promised in an announcement yesterday morning.

This third question was originally posted on the TV.com forum on June 17, 2006 and answered by director Brad Goodchild on June 27, 2006. You can read the relevant original posts here. The only changes made to the responses were to fix minor technical errors and remove time-relevant comments that no longer apply in the re-posts.

We also ask that you please do not re-post these questions and answers on your own personal website, unless you run the FAQ, director's blog, etc. Thank you.

Q: There's a huge selection of heroes in Greek mythology. When creating the main characters, how did you select which seven heroes to have the kids be descended from (particularly the choice of Narcissus)? And why seven, no more no less?

A: According to Michael Lahay, the story editor and co-creator of original idea, the characters were picked purely by demographics. Teletoon originally wanted 3 girls, but Studio B changed it to 2 girls. Neil was chosen as a hero basically because Chris Bartleman wanted him. That is, he really likes how deep Greek mythology is ingrained in our world, where names of things derive from. Example would be Hercules, herculean effort...you get the idea. So whenever theres a chance we like to show characters that the name is used to today. A bit of education thrown in there.

So basically Narcissus was chosen to have a bit of fun with. He's our version of Shaggy in 'Scooby Doo'.

The number of heroes just worked out to be 7...its lucky...its hard to animate with 7 characters, a big ensemble cast is always hard, but hey, I didn't pick them, I'm just the hired gun to direct the show and leave my mark on it. Only time will tell if we did a good job and kids are still watching the show 20 years from now.
