In the new CW series, STAR-CROSSED, it is an epic tale of young love against the odds when an alien boy and a human girl meet under the most unusual of circumstances.

In a tale as classic as love found amongst the stars, the CW drama STAR-CROSSED introduces the story of a young girl who falls for a young alien boy. Meeting one’s soulmate from across the universe is enough to sweep any girl off her feet, but when the entire human race seems against welcoming the aliens who have crash landed on their planet, it makes falling in love all that much harder. STAR-CROSSED’s young lovers Emery (Aimee Teegarden) and Roman (Matt Lanter) will try to carve out time for their budding romance, but with hostility brewing amongst human and alien factions, the story of Emery and Roman will be laced with much inter-species tension and how they struggle to help each side see the better qualities in the other. The aliens, known as Atrians, are not all to be feared and viewed with suspicion, as they have many wonderful qualities and abilities that humans should embrace. But the Atrians are wary of letting the humans know about their special abilities out of fear that they would be exploited, instead of welcomed as equals.

In an exclusive interview from the set, star Aimee Teegarden talked about her character Emery’s mindset and her desire to see where a relationship with Roman may go, and how Emery’s best friend Julia (Malese Jow) feels about the mysterious Atrians that may hold a miracle cure to her deadly disease.
