‘Preacher’: Ruth Negga & Joseph Gilgun On Tulip & Cassidy’s Complicated Season 2 Relationship

Preacher Season 2

Preacher season two will be premiering tonight on AMC and fans can certainly look forward to a lot of eventful things that will unfold on the show. For one, Tulip and Jesse are back together, but the latter doesn’t know that his longtime love slept with Cassidy. Preacher’s first season had the characters interacting mostly in pairs and now that the trio will be working together, it’s about to get complicated.

Speaking with ComicBook.com, Ruth Negga, who plays Tulip, discussed how she sees comparisons between her character and Cassidy and what the dynamic will be like in Preacher’s second season.

“I think she sees a mirror to herself in Cassidy, I really do. I think she sees someone who’s battled being an outsider, being thought of as peculiar. And I think she respects him because of that. I think he infuriates her, most definitely. His endless rantings and ramblings that honestly make no sense. She’s a very direct lady. But also he amuses her.

I do think she has a soft spot for him. I do think she is in many ways a lone wolf, but I think it’s always nice to find our place amongst someone. It’s always nice to feel needed. And I think she feels needed by Cassidy much more than she feels needed by Jesse. And she’s aware of his feelings for her, and I think it repels her. But also, I think she understands that it is a genuine affection that he has for her. And that he is probably in love with her.”

Joseph Gilgun, who plays Cassidy, expanded on the nature of their relationship a bit. After all, he, Tulip, and Dominic Cooper’s Jesse will be sharing a car during their search for God.

“I think it’s very complex. I think that the fact that he can’t be with her has forced him to analyze it all, especially her and Jess. There’s elements of Jesse and this mission for God. The rest get forgotten about. Like, the people around him slightly get forgotten about in what they’re going through. And I think Cassidy never really loses sight of what people are going through. Jesse with this enormous job, unfortunately, loses sight and even puts her and Cassidy in danger at times.

I think because Cassidy can’t be with her, it’s given him that space to be able to really look at what’s going on. I also think he adores her and wants to understand…I think Cassidy irritates the s**t out of Tulip, but she can’t help but see his vulnerabilities as well. They’re both very vulnerable in their own way. She’s actually really maternal and looks after him an awful lot. She really takes care of Cass. He clearly just worships the ground she walks on, you know, and thinks she’s bloody wonderful. And she is, ’cause she’s honest. She’s bloody honest. That’s the one thing that I don’t think Cassidy thinks Jesse is. He’s not honest to himself sometimes and he’s constantly giving really transparent examples of that.”
