Interview: The Winchesters Cast & Creatives on Bringing the Prequel to Life

The WinchestersTonight, the new Supernatural spinoff, The Winchesters, comes to The CW. The series is obviously a prequel, but the question remained if it would be made to be different than the original and feel like its own thing, or if it would be more of an extension and feel like the same exact world. The creative team knew that they couldn’t recreate the original and they didn’t want to undo the mythology that always exists either. According to executive producer Robbie Thompson, the balance was something they discussed from the beginning with executive producers Jensen and Danneel Ackles. “They had this idea about the love story between John and Mary,” Thompson told SciFi Vision during a recent panel promoting the series. “I think the extent of those first conversations were a lot of, ‘How do we do this and not undo anything and not rewrite or or anything like that?’…We can't recreate Supernatural…We had to find a way to kind of carve our own path.  We do have a plan for that. We're not going to totally reveal all of it today, but our plan is to sort of pull that curtain back in our thirteenth episode.”

Thompson also talked to the challenges of differentiating their show and using Better Caul Saul and Breaking Bad as an example. “[Better Caul Saul]’s a show that obviously predates the events of Breaking Bad, but it exists in its own little bubble, in its own little universe,” the producer told the site. “…Because we are a show that deals with the supernatural and paranormal, we have a few more tricks up our sleeves that we can kind of take advantage of, and we'll be hinting at that throughout the season, and then really pulling it all back in episode thirteen to really let the audience in on what we've done.”

Exclusive: Quantum Leap Star Caitlin Bassett on How Tonight’s Episode Will Change the Series & More

***The following interview contains spoilers for 1.04***

Quantum LeapTonight NBC aired an all-new episode of Quantum Leap in which Ben (Raymond Lee) leapt into the 1980s into the body of a female bounty hunter, Eva Sandoval. When Ben tried to repair Eva’s relationship with Jake (Justin Hartley), he started to remember his own past, which included his engagement to Addison (Caitlin Bassett), who serves as his hologram and helper during the leaps. 

Ben’s memory returning is an exciting change according to Bassett, who recently spoke with SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview. “That is when I think it really starts to open up,” the actress told the site, “because every time he has a memory now, it's just another piece of the puzzle...It allows it just storytelling-wise to happen in the scene in the moment…So, I think the audience will see a much more alive, real, tangible relationship.” 

Having worked as an intelligence analyst in the army during which time she earned a law degree, Bassett only more recently transitioned to acting. With Addison being her first big role, it’s been an intense adjustment period, but it’s been a positive experience that she’s grateful for. “I think it's just like starting anything big,” said the star, “Like, when I went to law school, or when I was in the military, you just kind of have to jump in, and luckily, I'm with possibly the kindest, most supportive cast and crew on the planet. So, I just feel so lucky not only to have such an amazing, meaty, complicated, fun, exciting role on a fun, exciting show, but then to have the support of who I have, I'm the luckiest person on the planet.”

Exclusive: Rachel Talalay on Directing Tonight’s Episode of Quantum Leap + Working on Doctor Who

Rachel TalalayOn tonight’s all-new episode of Quantum Leap, “A Decent Proposal,” Ben (Raymond Lee) leaps into the body of a female bounty hunter in 1980’s Los Angeles. Last week SciFi Vision spoke with director Rachel Talalay (Doctor Who,The Flash) in an exclusive interview about creating the time period and some of the unique parts of the experience. 

The 80s was a time Talalay was happy to be recreating. “That's what's great about time travel shows, you never know what you're going to get,” the director told SciFi Vision. “So, it was really nice to get something that I was comfortable with.” 

 “I was such a passionate punk,” she added. “…I remember discovering the Go Go's and giving it to my kid sister as the coolest pop punk. I was in the Whisky a Go Go in the early 80s, so it just felt like a complete fit.” 

This, however, did present a problem. “The challenge, of course, was that all of these things that I love about the 80s LA, many have disappeared,” Talalay explained, saying that she went to her own photographs. “The first time I visited LA was in '81, so I pulled out some photographs that I took of landmarks from '81. Of course, they're not there anymore.”

Interview: The Walking Dead's Shaw, Matsuura, Robins, & Eme-Akwari

The Walking DeadLast Sunday, The Walking Dead returned for its final eight episodes. There has been a lot of tension among those in the Commonwealth, because of what Sebastian (Teo Rapp-Olsson), Governor Pamela Milton (Laila Robins)’s son, is being accused of. In last week’s episode, Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura) talked to Pamela about what was transpiring, seemingly giving her the benefit of the doubt that she didn’t know everything her son was involved in. During a recent roundtable, SciFi Vision talked to Matsuura about Yumiko’s true feelings on the matter. “What was so disarming about Pamela is that she also has these moments of vulnerability where she'll share with me her feelings about Sebastian,” the actress told the site. “That can be quite kind of discombobulating for two women who are supposed to be in this professional relationship. I think I'm afforded this sort of privileged time with Pamela behind closed doors that not many people get to see. It's not as straightforward as you might think. I think that's part of what makes the storyline so interesting is that it's not that Pamela's just like this out and out there baddie…It's more nuanced than that. I think the way Laila plays Pamela is that you can see the struggle. You can see her belief in this system, and Yumiko has belief in a system; I want to believe in laws and a system. So, I can respect that point of view, and that's familiar ground to me. That's why I think the scene is interesting to play, because it's like two really smart, intelligent human beings, who are also very, very good at twisting words and manipulating things.”

Interview: The Walking Dead's McDermitt, Lazaro, Bingham, & Hilker

The Walking DeadTonight, the first of the final eight episodes of The Walking Dead premieres on AMC. SciFi Vision recently spoke to members of the cast during a roundtable interview about what their characters taught them.

For Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene, it was his selflessness. “I think Eugene has taught me to be less selfish,” the actor told SciFi Vision, “just in my own life. Not that I've [ever] felt like I was a very selfish person, but just to see how Eugene really puts others before him. I was like, ‘Yeah, that's kind of how we should all be living.’”

“I'm strong enough to do a lot more than I give myself credit for,” said Margot Bingham, who plays Eugene’s girlfriend, Max.

Paola Lazaro, who plays Princess, learned some valuable skills from her character. “For me,” said the actress, “I think this character taught me to be at peace with myself and to kind of love myself, but also to use the pain of the past to move you forward and for survival. Use those skills that you learned in the past, dealing with trauma and stuff like that to move you forward in this world as a shield.”

Interview: Cast and Creatives on Showtime's Let the Right One In, Premiering Sunday

Let the Right One InLet the Right One, which premieres Sunday on Showtime, follows Eleanor Kane (Madison Taylor Baez), who ten years prior was turned into a vampire and thus stuck forever as a twelve-year-old, only able to leave at night. Her father, Mark (Demián Bichir) does his best to continue to provide her with the blood she needs, but things become more challenging when they become entangled in the lives of those around them, including Isiah Cole (Ian Foreman) who wants to be friends with Eleanor.

The ten-episode series was inspired by the original Swedish novel and film of the same name. When adapting the story for the new series, showrunner and executive producer Andrew Hinderaker started with the connections between the characters. “The [original] movie is not only one of, for me, the best horror movies ever made, but probably the most moving, and that's how I always begin, with an emotional connection,” he told SciFi Vision during a recent TCA panel. “I think that, in the film, the relationship between those two children…is just astonishingly beautiful and poignant and poetic, and so there's an opportunity to use that as an aesthetic inspiration.”

“What's sort of extraordinary about the film is it also felt like there was real creative space to build upon what was already there,” he added. “So, for example, there's sort of a small relationship between the character, the child vampire, and her caretaker, who fetches her blood. For me, personally, as a person, as an artist, I was really interested in exploring addiction and exploring what a parent will do for a child when they are struggling with addiction. It felt like this incredible gift to take what was in the foundations and in the sort of seeds of the film and create an entirely new story that would be centered around Demián's character Mark and Madison's character Eleanor and explore the lengths that this father would go to keep his daughter alive.”

Interview: Call Me Kat's Cheyenne Jackson & Leslie Jordon on What's to Come in Season 3

Cheyenne Jackson and Leslie JordanLast week, Call Me Kat premiered on Fox, and SciFi Vision recently caught up with the cast during a roundtable interview to talk about season three and what’s to come, especially in their love lives. According to Cheyenne Jackson, who plays Max, his character is in the middle of having an existential crisis this season, and he’s eager for it. “They've kind of pitched me what's going to happen throughout the course of his year,” said the actor. “I can't get super into the weeds on that one, but there's some major life stuff happening that me, Cheyenne, as a dad, as a husband, as a performer, I'm really excited to get to jump into, stuff I've never been able to address, and stuff I've never been able to play. Of all the things I've been able to do, I'm getting to be able to do some pretty amazing subject matter. So, definitely the love life and all that plays a part of it.”

“Phil falls in love with a wonderful female impersonator that he goes to see named Queen Dicktoria,” said Leslie Jordon of his character to SciFi Vision. “It's John Griffin, who's just such a wonderful actor, and he plays Jaylen, who's Queen Dicktoria out of drag, and then I meet him out of drag and fall for him then, too. So, it's a really cute storyline.”

“In all my 40 years in working, I don't think I've ever had a storyline where I had a love interest,” the performer added. “I'm just the funny guy who comes with the zinger. So, it really throws me. I read that and go, ‘Oh my gosh! Are we going to kiss?! I've never kissed in front of a camera.’ It's just so well written.”

Interview: Cast and Creatives of Walker: Independence, Premiering Tonight

Walker IndependenceTonight The CW premieres their new series Walker Independence, which is set in the late 1800s and is an origin story of the series Walker, which currently airs on the network. In Independence, Abby Walker (Katherine McNamara)’s husband is murdered in front of her before they can journey out West where he was set to be the new sheriff of Independence, Texas. After Abby is rescued by Apache tracker Calian (Justin Johnson Cortez), she makes her way to Independence to find that Tom Davidson (Greg Hovanessian), who she has reasons to believe is not a good man, has taken over the job her husband would have had. While in the town, Abby runs into thief and con artist Hoyt Rawlins (Matt Barr), who she decides to align with, to help her seek justice and uncover her husband’s murderer.

Taking place in the late 1800s, the series boasts elaborate costumes, which help to inform their characters. “We have the most amazing wardrobe department,” star McNamara told SciFi Vision during a recent panel with the cast and creatives of the series. “Marian Toy is our brilliant costume designer, and she has taken such care to make sure everything is as historically accurate as possible.” The actress also talked about how wearing such a costume, including a corset, does really change the way you walk and “exist in space.”

Hovanessian added that they get so used to wearing the costumes that it feels odd to rehearse and block in street clothes.
