Mr. Robot: Portia Doubleday Is Here for Your Angela and Elliot Theories
Her character takes a much darker turn in Season 2, but Doubleday is still happy to discuss Redditor theories about Angela and Elliot’s past.
Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) wasn’t the only one whose life imploded during Season 1 of USA’s engrossing show Mr. Robot—a hacker drama filled with eerie parallels to the real world. His childhood friend Angela Moss, played by Portia Doubleday, was forced to alter the course of her own destiny when she realized that trying to climb the ladder in corporate America wasn’t a sure path to happiness and success—and neither was her long-term relationship with her cheating boyfriend Ollie (Ben Rappaport). While Elliot and the members of hacker collective fsociety took down nefarious global conglomerate E Corp from the outside, Angela made the controversial decision to start working there. It’s a choice that’s even harder to believe given that this is also the corporation responsible for the deaths of her mother and Elliot’s father.
Doubleday promises that we’ll see a changed Angela when the series returns Wednesday for Season 2, although it might be hard to discern whether or not she’s still “one of the good ones,” as Elliot once said.
