There was a period of time where I was almost getting indignant about the fact that both Marina and I had done fencing — I’ve done stage combat, karate, aikido, all sorts of things like that — and whenever there was anything to do that was action-oriented, it was always the male characters who were getting it. If there was ever a fight or something, Beverly was supposed to like, take a frying pan over someone’s head. And I thought, this is ridiculous. The female astronauts now know how to do everything that the male astronauts know how to do. And that’s the way it needs to be.
