DRAGONS: 9 REALMS: Aimee Garcia Discusses Her Character Development And A Potential Fourth Season (Exclusive)

The ever-popular How to Train Your Dragon franchise now has another chapter as the spin-off series just released its third season. We talked to Alex actress Aimee Garcia exclusively to learn more!

Interviews Opinion

How to Train Your Dragon has spurned a mega-franchise that stretches across many mediums. There are popular movies, an entire best-selling book collection, graphic novels in the double digits from Titan and Dark Horse comics, and even an animated series.

The latter is called Dragons: 9 Realms, which streams on both Hulu and Netflix. Season 3 of the show dropped this month, spinning the characters through an entirely new setting - the Fire Realm.

Since we had the pleasure of chatting with Alex's voice actress Aimee Garcia (Lucifer, Dexter), in support of Season 2, we decided to catch up with her about the newest chapter and what the future may hold for the series. In addition, she also went into detail about her character's arc and how she hopes to see it moving forward.

You can hear our exclusive chat with Aimee Garcia below, followed by this portion of the transcript, which has been edited for clarity. For those looking for a fully immersive experience, scroll to the bottom and check out the full video interview.

Aimee Garcia: We have an amazing new character that I'm a huge fan of, Jun's older brother, played by Vincent Tong, who is just hysterical. I'm such a fan. And we are having these teenagers go into the most dangerous realm of all, which is the Fire Realm, because not only do they have to confront all sorts of dragons, but just getting into the realm and staying alive is hard enough.

So Alex, my character, comes up with fire suits for her friends, and she builds them from scratch, and so she literally makes all of them fireproof, but not without a couple of tests. You know, you have to test prototypes. I'm really proud that our little Alex, who prefers computers and gadgets to humans, comes up with this fire suit, with a little help from the dragons, so they could descend into Season 3's Fire Realm.

In a potential Season 4, I would love to see her continuing to come out of her shell. I think that she's come a long way from not having any friends and being super scared of her own shadow to coming in and saving the day with Feathers' sonic scream with her eyes closed. It's like riding the roller coaster, kicking and screaming, and you didn't open your eyes, but you went on the roller coaster. So I would like to see her continue to spread her wings.

I'd love to see her really let her guard down and open up and find a true vulnerability in just letting people in. She's still snarky; as soon as they confront some big bad dragons, she's like, well, it's been nice knowing you. (Laughs) She's like, it's doomsday. It would be nice to see her grow into somewhat of an optimistic we're not gonna die and also open up about caring about her friends because she hasn't really done that. She hasn't really admitted how she feels about them, so it would be really cool not to cover up how she feels with sarcasm.

Aimee Garcia is back! The last time we chatted, we spoke about Dragons: 9 Realms, and now that Season 3 has been released, we had the awesome opportunity to touch base and get some updated fun bits about the new episodes.
 

Aimee plays Alex in the How to Train Your Dragon spin-off series, a tech genius teenage girl who has two moms, so we made sure to touch on the importance of that and their Latina representation.
 

We also talked about her Wonder Woman: Black and Gold comic book that she wrote as well as some of her other comic book writing projects she has coming up.
 

Discussing her work on Lucifer, Aimee revealed that the musical episode of the show has given her the opportunity to headline her own Netflix film in which she sings, dances, and plays piano opposite Freddy Prince Jr. It was a wonderful time, so make sure to listen in, and don't forget to check out the new episodes of Dragons: 9 Realms on Peacock and Hulu.


Dragons: 9 Realms Season 3 is now streaming on Hulu and Peacock.
