The cast dug deep into everything from the light-hearted—wedgies from the stunt harnesses—to the complexities of how feminism is a key component to the Runaways. Having representation on-screen gives power to the youth, and the characters of Molly, Gert, and Nico, each boldly tell their stories in their own ways.

The stressful situations of their characters transferred to the actors in real life, who had to deal with working through their emotions and stress by embracing their feelings both on and off camera.
