In love & war
Aaron Jeffery says the relationships with the two women in Chopper’s life reveal an intriguing side to his complicated character.
“Margaret was his wife, who went on this whole journey with him – a soul contact. It’s an amazing love story about a woman who stuck by the man she loved. There must have been a lot of hope and faith there, a lot of something, because many people would have just gone, ‘nah, too-hard basket’. But she didn’t, and was there until the end. The other love in his life, Mary-Ann, is also very interesting, because they’re like two alternate planets colliding. You look at their relationship and say, ‘How does that work?’ But it does.
Both Margaret and Mary-Ann were instrumental in this character’s journey to redemption.”
