We were joined on the Popternative show by Cristina Rodlo who joined season 2 of Paramount+’s Halo as Corporal Perez. The series takes place in the universe that first debuted in 2001 with the first Halo video game. Halo stars Pablo Schreiber (American Gods) as Master Chief, Spartan-117, and Natascha McElhone (Californication) as Dr. Halsey, who also both serve as producers this season.

Season 2 debuted with the first two episodes globally on Thursday, February 8th, 2024 on Paramount+ and follows Master Chief John-117 as he leads his team of elite Spartans against the alien threat known as the Covenant.

“The budget is massive. Everything is big, this is the biggest show I’ve been on, I’m just grateful to be part of this, grateful to be able to tell this story,” Cristina says on being part of season 2.

Cristina also touches on the differences between the video game and the series: “[Halo] changed the course of video games; but at the same [time], you need to step away from that, because we’re doing an adaptation, were not doing the same thing. My character is not even in the video game. So as much as I love the video game, we need to understand that this is a completely different thing. It is a TV series out of that adaptation; we’re making something new.”
