Default How Catherine O'Hara's Moira Rose set the general philosophy of Schitt's Creek

https://www.vulture.com/2020/01/schi...oira-rose.html

Eugene Levy was the first to suggest that he and son Dan Levy cast his longtime collaborator O'Hara as Moira Rose. But O'Hara insisted that her character not be a snob or mean-spirited -- she didn't want Moira Rose to have a "hardened bitterness." “In the pilot, Moira was full of insults — to anyone, especially townsfolk. I think their idea was to have her be very dry and funny and caustic,” O’Hara said, adding that she successfully pushed for her charcter to “show that I loved and supported my husband, and that I always held hope, right to the last second, that he was going to work out a way to get us out of here.” The key to Moira, she believes, is “that self-delusion that we all have, especially in hard times, when we think we’re holding it together. Instead of a futile bitterness, I wanted there to be a weird optimism.” As Dan Levy says: "It’s about kindness, and the power of love and acceptance. There’s nobody that is mean on our show.”
