Shannara Chronicles' Ivana Baquero Dishes on How Much Eretria Grew From Season 1 to Season 2

Shannara Chronicles' Ivana Baquero Dishes on How Much Eretria Grew From Season 1 to Season 2

Ivana Baquero wows in a red dress at People Magazine’s ‘Ones To Watch’ Party held at NeueHouse Hollywood on Wednesday night (October 4) in Los Angeles.

The Shannara Chronicles actress joined co-star Vanessa Morgan, as well as Rise‘s Auli’i Cravalho and Damon J. Gillespie, James Maslow, Chandler Kinney and Alexandra Shipp.

In a recent interview, Ivana opened up about Eretria’s growth we’ll see in season two of the show.

“Eretria undergoes a remarkable transformation in Season 1. Essentially, she goes from being selfish to selfless, and in the quest to save her life and the world from a demon invasion, she learns about love, compassion, and friendship.”

She adds, “By the end of Season 1, you’d think she’s ‘completed’ her arch, but little do we realize that she has yet to learn the most important thing about herself – which she will explore in Season 2 – who she really is and where she comes from.”
