Spoiler: Andrew Marlowe discusses show’s early years and 100th episode

Marisa Roffman from Gimmemyremote.com had a chance to sit down with Andrew Marlowe and go down the memory lane with Castle’s creator Andrew Marlowe. Here’s what she found out:


Marisa: Episode 100 is finally here!
Andrew Marlowe: Yeah, it’s nice! It’s nice we were able to get there, it’s nice the TV gods smiled upon us. We’re gratified that we get to keep making them.

Marisa: Is it a little weird celebrating episode 100 when you’re several episodes ahead in writing and production?
AM: There’s still a lot of work to do before we get to the end of the season. So it’s nice to pause and take a moment to reflect on everything we’ve done. And when we look back at the journey it’s been, it’s been pretty phenomenal. I just have the highest praise for our actors and everybody on the writing staff and crew for everything they’ve been able to bring to it. Not too many shows have the opportunity to hit this benchmark and we consider ourselves very fortunate.

Marisa: Looking back at the pilot, what do you remember of your first day of production?
AM: The first day of production is both daunting and makes you giddy, because it’s like, we’re here, we arrived, we’re making this, it’s really exciting, but I can’t for the life of me tell you what our first scene was. I just knew I was in remarkable company with Nathan Fillion (Castle) and Stana [Katic (Beckett)], and being able to work with [guest star] Keir Dullea on the pilot and hear stories about making [the movie] 2001[: A SPACE ODYSSEY]. It was really a wonderful experience.

Any time you get something new into production, it feels fresh and it’s just awesome. I remember my first day on AIR FORCE ONE [which Marlowe wrote], and we went down to a runway next to LAX and there was a plane they had painted to look like the president’s 747. Coming on to CASTLE, it’s smaller scale [than film], but more control as a showrunner, because you are the executive producer. So to control the vision down to the smallest detail was a new and interesting challenge.
