Exclusive Interview with Adam Copeland for HavenInterview by Jamie RubyWritten by Jamie Ruby
Tonight Syfy airs an all-new episode of Haven
. The series, based on Stephen King's The Colorado Kid
, takes place in a town where many of the ihabitants have strange abilities they call Troubles, which wreak all kinds of havoc in the small town. Adam Copeland plays Cheif of Police Dwight Hendrickson, whose mission it is to get rid of the Troubles and keep the town safe.
Copeland recently talked with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about the series.
There is a lot of great stuff going on in season five of Haven
, and as Dwight is a bullet magnet, it makes for some fun action scenes. "It's always safe to say that Dwight at some point is going to take some bullets. I don't know how fleshed out the character was [originally]. I don't think Dwight was supposed to be around for a while, so I think we're in this situation now where it's like, okay, he attracts bullets. How does he survive? So there's always going to be at some point where Dwight will probably get hit with some bullets.

Most fans will recognize the star of FOX's new drama, Gracepoint
, as the 10th Doctor from the massively popular British series, Doctor Who
David Tennant, however, also stars in the UK series Broadchurch
as Alec Hardy. Now, the actor is starring as Emmett Carver in FOX's 10-episode mystery series based on Broadchurch
. The series will have many similarities, but will also introduce new characters and storylines in an expansion of the original series, which is now filming its second season.
The series follows new to Gracepoint detective, Carver, who with the aid of Detective Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn), work to solve the tragic murder of twelve year old Danny Solano (Nikolas Filipovic).
In preparation of the premiere, Tennant talked to the media earlier in the week about the new series, which premieres Thursday, October 2nd on FOX.
Tennant talked to SciFi Vision about playing such similar characters, keeping them straight, and whether they bled into one another. "You're just sort of playing each scene as it comes up. You only shoot one scene at a time, so you try to stay as in the moment as possible. Maybe, if I was day about, going between the two shows, but I went to Vancouver Island where we shot the show, and I lived surrounded by all the people who were involved with it. That's what we were there to do. That's what you're concentrating on while you're there. I don't think it did really.
This past weekend SciFi Vision writers Karen Moul, A.J. Grillo, and Alyssa Grillo attended LOST 2014
, the ten-year fan gathering held in Oahu for the series. The event included filming location tours as well as a Q&A panel with star Jorge Garcia (Hurley). More on the panel and tours coming soon. For now, here are some photos of the panel that Karen took.

Tonight FOX premieres its new series Gotham
. The show is the origin story of DC Comics villains and heroes and how they came to be who they are today.
The series follows new Gotham City detective James Gordon, played by Ben McKenzie, as he works with brash police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) on the high-profile murder of Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz)'s parents.
Last week star McKenzie talked to the media about his new role.
McKenzie talked to SciFi Vision about what first attracted him to the part. "I worked with Bruno Heller last year on a pilot. Southland
was ending; we did a pilot for CBS that Warner Brothers produced and it didn't go to series, and so Bruno called me this year, January or February of this year, and said, "I have a script that I've written. I'd like to send it to you, I've written the part of Jim Gordon with you in mind and I'd like you to take a look." So it kind of started from that.

Season 10 of Bones

The two talked to SciFi Vision about how Booth's time both in jail and post jail will affect their relationship.
Deschanel said, "Booth is in trouble. We're worried about him. We think he's not going to survive being in prison. We have different ideas about how we're going to get him out.
