Who commented more on the theme of the production was the actress Allison Williams, who, in the work, plays Gemma, creator of M3GAN. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she revealed that, to live the character, who is a roboticist, she needed to talk to professionals in the field, including engineers, AI experts, among others.
“I understood almost nothing of what they told me. I asked them about what it’s like to be a woman in this area where there are a lot of men.

What motivated you? Did you have role models? It was great,” said Allison.
