Chris Pratt and Michael Rooker, in early Guardians of the Galaxy press notes, have given us a closer look at what to expect from their characters in James Gunn's upcoming sci-fi adventure. Beware of spoilers!
Here, Chris Pratt, who plays Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, gives us a better understand of his character.
"He's very much a kid at heart. He's never known his father. He's sucked away into space just as his mother dies and is raised by a blue-skinned humanoid. He has spent all his life being told to toughen up and has a false sense of bravado as a result. But deep down he is lonely, and while he's a guy traveling in space getting to do whatever he wants, he misses his family, his community, and through the course of the story, he learns to care again and that there's more to life than just taking and doing exactly what you want."
Michael Rooker also commented on his character's, Yondu, relationship with Peter Quill.
"It's a beautiful story, a great uplifting story, and I found the relationship between Quill and Yondu intriguing. He went to pick him up from Earth, and for some reason, he decided not to take him where he was meant to go and raised him himself. He made a connection with him, and Yondu now enjoys the fact that Quill has the courage to do his own thing."
