I was talking about that in another interview where they asked me why Rachel goes to Buck. And part of it is because he leaves the door open.
He still believes in OA, whereas the others doubted her or they've lost hope. But Buck still has this strong hope and belief that she's still out there and they still have to help her.
But also, I was thinking it's because of their voices and their connection. In dimension two, Rachel is mute and it's hard for her to communicate, but she travels into Buck's mirror since they both sing — that's something they have in common and that's how she's able to communicate.
So yeah, I definitely have been noticing the parallels between them since part one, but they fully dive into that in part two and acknowledge the fact that there is a connection between Buck and Rachael.
Renfro: My interpretation of it has been that OA is surrounded by a different "tribe" — that's the word I use, for lack of a better term — but it's like each person in that tribe kind of has a link to another second dimension.
Renfro: I would also love to talk to you about the final scene since that is such a trippy, complex, and surprising way for this season to end.
Renfro: Yeah, it's meta but then once I sat down and looked at it, it's not like a full breaking of the fourth wall because there are still these changes from our reality.
Can you walk me through your understanding of what is happening in that scene? Alexander: So essentially, Michelle successfully jumped through the Rose window into the third dimension.
Which is very similar to our reality outside of the show. But it is different because obviously Brit Marling and Jason Isaacs aren't married in real life.
But it is a dimension in which they are creating the show called "The OA. They even referenced it [when an earlier character told OA]: "Everyone will call you OA but you yourself will not.
So Michelle jumped into the body of "Ian Alexander," and is trapped there, and doesn't know how to return back to dimension two.
But when Karim calls out to Michelle, she's able to realize, "Oh, I need to go back to the rose window. It's not really confirmed whether or not — once Michelle has jumped through back into dimension two and wakes up from that coma — if "Ian Alexander's" consciousness is no longer repressed and it comes back.
You're not really sure what happens to "Ian Alexander" but that's stuff that we'll certainly have to see in part three if it gets picked up.
I definitely feel like it's gonna be very interesting to see how Steve jumps into "Paddy Gibson's" body and then chases after OA in the end.
Yet again, this parallels what happened at the end of part one. But instead, this time, instead of the ambulance escaping him and OA's body and consciousness escaping him, he is able to confront it and confront Hap as well.
And then Michelle jumps from "Ian Alexander's" body back into Michelle's body. Alexander: [Laughing ] Yeah.
It's very complicated and confusing, but that's the best I can do. Renfro: Did you ever get headaches on set while you were trying to figure out like, "I'm Ian but 'Ian' for this scene?
Initially, they dressed me up as Michelle because they thought I was just supposed to be playing Michelle that day.
But before they put the wig on I was like, "No, actually I'm supposed to be Ian Alexander today so I just need to have my natural hair.
So yeah, it definitely caused a lot of confusion 'cause I would hear crew members being like, "Wait, what dimension are we in? Are we in three?
Are we in two? What's going on here? Insider logo The word "Insider". Close icon Two crossed lines that form an 'X'.

In an interview with INSIDER, Alexander reveals how he drew an antler design that said "Buck Vu" for his character's costume and helps explain the details of the final mind-bending twist.
The FBI and adoptive parents try to get her to share her story about where she has been, but she refuses.
Instead, she befriends four high school boys and a teacher and spills the tea about where she has been.
As a result, she asks for their help to help rescue others via opening a different dimension. When Alexander sat down and talked with Deadline, he said that Marling and Batmanglij specifically wrote the role of Buck for a 14 to year-old Asian American transgender male.
When they told casting, they laughed it off and said that they probably will only get one person to fulfill the role because of the specific description.
This has since become a topic of heated discussion and backlash. The tide seemed to change with the casting and subsequent exit of Scarlett Johansson from Rub and Tug.
However, TV has been ahead of films when it comes to authenticity with trans actors in trans roles. Alexander joins this list of names which further dispels myths of representation of LGBTQ people and other marginalized communities — specifically trans actors.
Alexander comes from a layered cultural background. His mother lost her parents and immigrated here from Vietnam with her little brother.
After staying with extended family, his mother lived the epitome of the American dream, becoming valedictorian, getting a college degree and having a family.
In addition to being the son of an immigrant, he is also biracial and was raised Mormon. He realized that his culture and religious upbringing shaped who he was and made it difficult to accept the fact that he was trans.
They believed, very strongly, that this was something that was wrong and needed to be corrected. He was determined to prove himself as not only as a trans man but also an actor.
Even so, Alexander said that as soon as they went home, his mom when back to misgendering him. Despite that, this was a revelation.
The struggle has been real for Alexander and he continues to hit speed bumps along the way, but he is very zen and has learned to overcome obstacles along the way.
He admits that he has matured very quickly because of all the conflict. The story arc for Buck and Michelle hit close to home for the actor at two particular times in his life.
I felt like Michelle was a past self — kind of like a memory of Buck. Sci-fi tends to be genres that speak to marginalized communities.
In its own special way, sci-fi narratives, although grand and fantastical in spectacle, speak to marginalized communities.
