Interview with Adam Copeland and Emily Rose of "Haven" on Syfy 9/29/15

They both seemed very nice and friendly and answered our many questions with quite a bit of detail.  Our site is very glad to have interviewed the kind actors of "Haven" so many times over the past 5 years.

Moderator: Samantha Agnoff
September 29, 2015 2:00 p.m. ET

Good afternoon. My name is Shannon and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Haven conference call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakerís remarks there will be a question and answer session.

If you would like to ask a question during this time, simply press star then the number 1 on your telephone keypad. If you would like to withdraw your question you may press the pound key. Thank you. It is now my pleasure to turn todayís call over to Samantha Agnoff from Syfy Publicity. Ms. Agnoff you may begin your conference.

Samantha Agnoff: Great. Thanks, Shannon. Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Haven season five conference call. Weíre excited to have stars Emily Rose and Adam Copeland joining us today. Season five returns on October 8th with two back-to-back episodes starting at 10:00 Eastern on Syfy. Weíve got lots to discuss, so letís get started.

Shannon, you can put through the first question.

Operator: Certainly. Your first question comes from the line of Robin Burks from Tech Times. Your line is open, please go ahead.

Robin Burks: Hi, Emily. Hi, Adam.

Adam Copeland: Hi.

Emily Rose: Hello.

Robin Burks: Thank you for talking to us today. Saw the first two episodes and they are really intense. A lot happens. How are these events going to affect your characters moving forward as well as the relationship with each other?

Emily Rose: Wow. I was telling Adam earlier-- we were sort of talking about how weíre having to brush off the old like memory of what -- where last year was and for us because we filmed it so long ago. But I think like I really liked how, I donít know if chaotic is the right word, but thatís how it felt to me filming it not necessarily the experience, but the story of it, how you know we start this world of (Haven) off in this sort of mass chaos.

And itís really kind of neat because instead of the chaos like pushing people away, it's kind of, itís drawing them together. Maybe with the exception I donít know of you, Adam, of your character felt kind of the responsibility to kind of hold it all together and you step into kind of this new great role, obviously, with (Dwight). But I feel like between (Nathan) and (Audrey) it kind of causes them to be super close and, obviously, like I think that the town as a whole is trying to band together to kind of get through that, kind of, chaotic sense of disruption if that makes any sense.

Adam Copeland: Yes, I think Ė I think the chaos you know it lends itself to (Dwight) just trying to hold everything together and in doing that ruffles feathers, ruffles the feathers of friends, ruffles the, you know, the feathers of not necessarily enemies but, you know, the Dukes of the world. But at the end of the day, Dwight is always just trying to keep the town together. Thatís really all the guy cares about.

So itís interesting, you know? There can be heads butting because of that. It was interesting to the relationship of partnership and, you know, the grand scheme of keeping the town together can also cause butting of heads. So it was a lot of fun for me personally, yes.

Emily Rose: You know, it was a fun episode. It was a cool set and a cool kind of experience. You kind of felt huddled into this place and it wasnít really, the (Haven) street. You were you know inside the school so it was Ė it was a neat feeling.

Robin Burks: Also, this is it for (Haven), which is kind of sad. How do you feel the season finale acts as a series finale? Do you think that longtime fans are going to feel satisfied at the end?

Emily Rose: Yes, I mean I Ė the cool thing about this season, you know, kind of contrary to what was initially put out there is that you know our planners are really planning for it to be the end. We were, from the beginning, speaking with (Matt) and (Gabrielle) about where these characters would land we were treating the Ė the end was being treated as a series finale. Itís always been in the plan.

So, I mean it was hard. It was a tough process because I found myself being satisfied in a lot of ways and being sad in a lot of ways and having to kind of examine (well) am I bummed about this aspect because I just donít want to say goodbye to this person, this character Iíve gotten to live with so long. But I do think, looking back on it and being however many nine months away from that experience of shooting those final episodes, I really do feel a sense of satisfaction and nostalgia when I think about filming those last couple episodes for sure. I donít know about you, Adam but thatís kind of how I feel.

Adam Copeland: Yes, I think you never absolutely, you know, 100 percent of the time get everyone to agree. OK that was Ė that was perfect. Itís just impossible. Thereís too many jaded people in the world. But I can say that it feels like the knots were tied Ö

Emily Rose: Yes, there was good closure.

Adam Copeland: It doesnít feel like thereís loose ends, which I think was important to all of us. From the creative stand point, from the performing stand point, the last thing you want is like, ďYes, but what about?Ē And I donít think there is that ,personally.

Emily Rose: Yes.

Robin Burks: Well, thank you Ö

Emily Rose: I think Ė I'll say one more thing, I do think thereís going to be fun speculation at the end. I think every good show has a bit of that intrigue that they still leave you with because at the core of our show is the mystery. So thereíll always be things that I think will leave the fans being able to talk and be like, ďWell what about this, and what about this?Ē

But itís not any massive questions. Like I feel like itís just more like the kind of questions you want to be thinking about and leaving it up to the audience so that they can kind of carry that journey on however they would like to in their minds.

Adam Copeland: Well put.

Emily Rose: Sorry, Adam.

(Multiple Speakers)

Robin Burks: Itís OK, thank you.

Emily Rose: Thank you.

Adam Copeland: Thanks.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Jamie Ruby from SciFi Vision. Your line is open please go ahead.

Jamie Ruby: Hi, guys, great to talk to you again.

Adam Copeland: Hey. How are you?

Emily Rose: Great to talk to you too.

Jamie Ruby: Iím really sad to see it go, I will definitely say that. This is kind of jumping off of (Robinís) first question and I donít know if you can add any to it. But I was interested in the fact that letís just say for spoiler wise that more people, obviously, become aware of the troubles this season. Can you talk about moving throughout the season how thatís going to affect the town in general? Like is going to make their work harder, easier, is it going to affect that part?

Adam Copeland: I think Ö

Emily Rose: Be aware Ö

Adam Copeland: DoesÖ

Emily Rose: No go ahead, Adam, sorry. Sorry, say that again.

Adam Copeland: Well, I think much to (Dwight's) chagrin it definitely makes his job harder.

Emily Rose: Did you just say chagrin?

Adam Copeland: I did.

Emily Rose: Youíre an old man. He said chagrin, everyone. Thatís hilarious.

Adam Copeland: At some point in this Iím going to get (humbridge) in too.

Emily Rose: Yes.

Adam Copeland: A few whipper snappers.

Emily Rose: Oh God, youíre so goofy.

Adam Copeland: But I do think that this season definitely just from my characterís stand point, well, from every characters' stand point, it really pulls them as much as the threads can be pulled. Thereís a lot that happens, thereís a lot that goes on and thereís a lot to bottle up and keep contained and is that possible? Itís just a volatile season, which is great.

Emily Rose: And so is youíre Ė just to Ė sorry, just to clarify your question too, is it about the awareness, like the townís awareness of the troubles? Like are we trying to conceal that or is it OK that theyíre out is that correct?

Jamie Ruby: I donít know. Thatís what I meant that the whole town knows, but I didnít know if everybody knows that or not, but Ö

Emily Rose: Well no, I mean itís a really smart question because that is something that we kind of wrestled with throughout the season. Weíre kind of like OK, you know, the town as a result is dealing with the fact that these troubles have, you know, we Ė the end of last season theyíve come out of Duke. And so, itís kind of like, now itís not like family secrets so much anymore, itís kind of wherever the trouble crap landed if that makes sense.

Jamie Ruby: Yes.

Emily Rose: So, you got people dodging kind of bird poo trouble crap falling from the sky. That's probably not a good way to say that in an interview, (Multiple Speakers) You just said chagrin and I said bird poo trouble crap. I think Iím lower on the intellectual ladder here.

But, essentially, it is a Ė it is a town-wide problem now. You know itís, I think you had all these secrets for so long and the town felt like they were outcasts and had to keep it quiet. But now itís like, like what (Adam) was saying. Like the whole town is dealing with this problem together.

So we kind of wrestled with that. Obviously, (Audrey) and (Ethan) and Dwight and (Duke) all know that the rest of everybody doesnít. And so, there are still those secrets and things but, you know, itís a lot of the town sort of freaking Ė having a mutual freak out about, you know, what does this really mean for us and what the heck is going on? And, you know, that just the way you feel with your leaders and being like, youíre not telling us everything. So, yes, thereís definitely that.

Jamie Ruby: OK and then as a follow up, is there anything that you two took from the set or were given from the set, like a prop or you know something just kind of that you remember the show with?

Emily Rose: I honestly think I had like probably a bunch of stuff and I still have stuff thatís in (Shawnís) airstream trailer up in Canada thatís supposed to come back. Like I took -- I mean I took a lot and I actually had to ask for permission for some of it, but I took the clock out of Haven Harold ball pin. I took Ė I took there was a huge beautiful painting of (Lindenberg's) thatís actually up in (Shawnís) airstream Iím hoping to get. So, (Shawn) if you read this, please I want my (Lindenberg) painting.

And thereís a chandelier actually that was in a very unique room that you guys will see at the end of the season that Iím hoping to have installed in my new bathroom. So, I did take a lot. Oh I took a little shield off the wall in the Haven ball pin that said, Ďour little darlingí which I really liked. Yes I took a lotÖ

(Multiple Speakers)

Emily Rose: Yes I really did. Because you know what I was like listen, they know where to find it if we somehow get pulled back, but thereís too much that Iím attached to here and if I can have these little mementos, you know, and everybody was really sweet about it. They understood you know you spend a lot of time in Ė thatís your office, thatís your world. Everybody can pack up their office when they leave and itís hard you know not to think you donít get to pack up. So, everybody was really sweet about what we could Ė what we could have or take away.

Jamie Ruby: Great. Adam?

Adam Copeland: I was able to get (Dwightís) vest. I spent Ö

Emily Rose: Thatís awesome.

Adam Copeland: So, much time in that thing that I Ö

Jamie Ruby: You hated it.

Adam Copeland: And I did hate it and I felt I deserved that just to be able to look at and go, I hated you, but I had so many great times in you. So Ö

Jamie Ruby: But, I love you.

Adam Copeland: So itís one of those expositions. Another big word, wow, Iím on fire.

Emily Rose: Yes. I have my badge, I have my badge and my book and my pen. I have that too.

Adam Copeland: I have the badge and the chief (Hendrickson) sign from the office door. And what else, what else, I know there is one other thing. Oh, quite awesomely, a few other guys from set gave me the slate from the last scene that I was in.

Emily Rose: I know, I got a slate too. Yes, that was the coolest part. The camera guy Ö

Adam Copeland: I know.

Emily Rose: Ö gave us those which was great.

Adam Copeland: Yes, yes and I wonít name names just so they donít get in trouble, but they know who they are so.

Emily Rose: (Multiple Speakers)

Jamie Ruby: All right, well thank you guys so much. It's great talking to you again.

Adam Copeland: Thank you.

Emily Rose: Nice talking to you.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Heather McClatchy from (TV Goodness). Your line is open, please go ahead.

Heather McClatchy: Hi, guys itís great to talk with you again. So going into Ė going into the final season, we see all of (Audrey) and youíre now having to bridge two characters so far. I donít want you to have to spoil anything, but was it nice to kind of get back in (Audreyís) skin and put (Mara) down for a little while?

Emily Rose: Yes it was Ė it was a little Ė it was a little strange because (Mara) is so, you know, such a brat. Sheís so fun to play, so I got to be so bratty. And then, with (Audrey) I felt like I wanted to have some of those moments but, you know, sheís just a little different in how sheís a brat. But, donít laugh at that like you know what that means, Adam.

But there were some different really fun things. I got to play (Lucy) a bit more this last season, which was really exciting for me. And, then, obviously, (Audrey) even though itís chaotic, something I really enjoyed about the top of the season 5b was that she and (Nathan) were in a really good place. And so it was kind of neat to get to play that relationship out as what is it like for them when theyíre banding together and theyíre not driven apart?

What is it like when they have to really work as a team, you know, post all this relationship discovery that theyíve had. So it was kind of nice to be like, what would it Ė you know what would it feel like for them to be this you know working partner couple in this town where crazy stuffís happening where they get to just like kind of be together and enjoy, you know, tackling things together as a team before things got highly dysfunctional. So that was nice.

And then, also I got to do some sign language in the first couple episodes with a really cool, great character. And so, it was really, really fun to be able to do that. So, yes.

Heather McClatchy: Very cool. And for Adam, you actually get to do an honest to God mic drop in the first episode (Off-Mic). I just, I just (howled) about that. So for (Dwight) to sort of take the lead and then, again, I donít want to spoil it for folks who havenít seen the episodes, but (Dwight) makes a pretty big decision that affects the whole town and then sort of makes a big decision about the police department and the guard. Can you talk a little bit about that what it was like to have (Dwight) sort of really assume a leadership role in such a very big way?

Adam Copeland: That was huge from a personal standpoint just to be reading the scripts and going, ďWhoa, are you sure you want me to do that?Ē There were moments where I was like, you guys know that you wrote that for me, right? I just want to make sure that's clear and so that was huge. What for me it was I guess a validation or a confirmation like OK Iím working towards a goal here and it must be working. So that was great from a personal standpoint.

From a creative standpoint those are the things you want. You just you want to dig your teeth into that and itís like, OK three page monologue.

Emily Rose: Yes.

Adam Copeland: And we did a scene that was all action for about eight hours of the day because it was (Shawn Filler). So by the time we got to that monologue, I had done two takes at it. So and I had a Ė I was the kind of thread throughout the action scene too with all these different players, so I really couldnít concentrate on it as much as I would have wanted to. So it was a huge challenge and it was great because it was so much fun.

Heather McClatchy: But, you killed it.

Adam Copeland: Well, it was fun you know and it was pivotal and those are the challenges that I realized that I want. Whereas you know in season two and old (Dwight) first showed up, that would have petrified me. So it was great to grow into that and be in such a pivotal spot to help kind of push the story along. And it was also written in the script that (Dwight) drops the mic. So it was actually written in that way too.

Heather McClatchy: So for the full-effect very cool. And with the series now done and, as you said, Emily, youíre nine months out, do you have any favorite moments or arcs that you can share with us or is it something that we havenít seen yet over the course of the series?

Emily Rose: Favorite arcs and moments, I really enjoyed playing (Lucy) this season. And one of my favorite, I would, say creative actor moments was being able to work with (Lucas) as a director on his episode that he directed, which was episode 517. It was such a Ėit was just like a quibble moment to watch something that your friend has wanted to do for so long and then to watch him succeed epically at it. Was really, really, really fun.

So that whole experience, (Audrey) was Ė how do I put this without spoiling anything? Itís kind of a very heightened surreal episode that isnít necessarily based so much on reality. So it was really, really cool to watch everything that (Lucas) had to prep and to be involved in that for him to act in it. And then to be able to take directions from somebody that you have such a great vocabulary with and then be able to work so well with and watch the whole crew come behind him and support him. And then also have some of the most killer shots we had the whole season, done on his episode because.

It was just a really, really cool experience all around. So that was really neat. And I think even like one of Ė again I think even one of his good friends, (Tim) was working on that episode as well. So it was just really Ė it was a really cool, it was just really a neat experience.

And then I think also the end of the series, you just want to do such a good job and you want to do your characters justice and you want to do the story justice, and you want to feel fulfilled and that people will feel fulfilled. And youíre just so freaking nostalgic with everybody that you Ė but that was a really sweet memory as well. So yes.

Heather McClatchy: Awesome, thank you. And, (Adam)?

Adam Copeland: Iím going to mirror a lot of what Emily just said Ö

Emily Rose: That you really liked playing (Lucy)?

Adam Copeland: I really enjoyed (Lucy).

Heather McClatchy: Can we get those out takes please on the DVDs? I want to see that.

Adam Copeland: No one would want to see that.

Emily Rose: I wish he would have done that.

Heather McClatchy: Pictures or it never happened, pictures or it never happened.

Adam Copeland: Well the Ė this final season was really such a, as I kind of briefly touched on, a jump in responsibility and character wise and there are so many instances where (Dwight) has to basically address everyone. And those are huge moments for that character, so I really remember those ones Ö

Emily Rose: Yes.

Adam Copeland: Kind of the pressure cooker that that was when you have essentially an entire town staring at you and itís like, OK here we go. That and also you know the episode that (Lucas) did (written by Shernold Edwards), it was Ė what was interesting about it was, like Emily said, everyone just wanted to absolutely hit that over the green monster. We wanted a grand slam. No doubt this thing was going to be awesome and top to bottom everyone put in, if there was extra effort to put in, everyone did.

You know it was interesting, (Lucas) and I had dinner the week before and he said, ďOK listen, Iím going to need you to block shoot this,Ē which means basically thereís 8 scenes, 6 or 8 scenes throughout the episode, but they take place in one room. He said, Can you just flip them all the way through your side then weíll turn around and get the other personís side? So what it meant was 22 minute takes. And Ö

Emily Rose: Thatís right, I forgot about that.

Adam Copeland: Yes and I said, yes got it no problem. As long as I got the heads up and itís from (Lucas) you know so you wanted just to be able to crush it for him. So that was pretty amazing and an amazing memory and something that I will always take with me no matter what I do.

And yes the end, you canít help but get sentimental with every final (scene) and realize, oh wow this was the last time that youíll see these two characters together. And everything that theyíve inhabited throughout and gone through throughout, this is the culmination of that. And thatís a huge Ė itís a huge ride but itís special and youíd like to think people will be watching and invested in thinking the same thing. So those were all really, really big kind of pivotal things that I remember.

Heather McClatchy: Awesome. Well, thank you guys so much for your time.

Emily Rose: You also recommended that (Josh) Ö

Heather McClatchy: Iím sorry?

Emily Rose: I was just saying that Adam recommended the (Josh Gerald) song that (Lucas) ended up choosing for the end of the episode. And then we all got so (stoked) about it that we just kept begging for that to get cleared and we were able to contact him and that great song which was your pick for it. And then (Lucas) so excited to make that happen to the end of the episode.

So it just felt very collaborative and almost like well like, I donít know how like those senior days at school when itís like the last day of school but you get to goÖ

Adam Copeland: Yes.

Emily Rose: I donít know Ö

Adam Copeland: Yes, I forgot about that. Thereís this artist named (Josh Gerald) who I was really into because my fatherís day video had been done with his music as a present. So I really got into him and I listened to this one song (Ulysses) constantly and Ö

Emily Rose: Oh good.

Adam Copeland: I just said, yes this feels like if itís not the end of the series it needs to be the end of this episode and (Lucas) agreed. And then we all started listening to it constantly. Keep an ear out for it in that episode because itís such a beautiful song.

Emily Rose: Yes.

Heather McClatchy: Thatís awesome. Well thank you both so much and congratulations on a wonderful series. Thank you for sharing it with us for so many seasons. I have certainly enjoyed it.

Emily Rose: Thank you.

Adam Copeland: Thank you.

Operator: Absolutely. Your next question comes from the line of R.C. Samo: from Fanboy Nation. Your line is now open, please go ahead.

R.C. Samo:: Hi, Adam. First of all Iím a huge, (Mark Snow) fan, you know, missed you in the (WWE).

Adam Copeland: Oh, hey thanks.

R.C. Samo:: You know, first of all how has it been transitioning from the instant gratification of being in front of a crowd at Wrestle Mania to delayed gratification of finding out how much we like the show six months later? And for the both of you, do you think that, I donít know, a year, maybe two years after the series ends would we get a TV movie out of this?

Emily Rose: Actually, it hasnít been hard for Adam to transition at all because every day he came to setĖ he insisted on being cheered into the set the same way. You know, I mean it was an exhausting way to start the day. It was exhausting to put up all those bright lights and to get face paint on. It was like so crazy. But I mean it really Ė it helped ease him into it for sure.

Adam Copeland: I said listen if you guys want me to do this, I need (inaudible joke)

Emily Rose: Exactly, exactly.

Adam Copeland: Well played. It was a Ė it was a transition definitely. WWE and acting, theyíre both on the entertainment tree, theyíre just different branches. So it was just kind of getting accustomed to those small differences that can be there, like you said [in the WWE, it is] instant gratification you know right away if something worked. Iím assuming like theater works.

This I really looked for a lot of confirmation from people after I did something because I wasnít sure. It was new to me and I wanted to make sure that I was on the right path. So I would talk to Emily or (Lucas) or the directors and just go, Was that OK? Like did that suck?

Because I donít have a barometer yet, I donít have my gauge set for this. Thankfully by the end I was starting to realize when I found what was working I hope. So that Ö

R.C. Samo:: (Multiple Speakers) for five seasons?

Adam Copeland: Like yes that was a little bit of confirmation it's like oh they keep bringing me back so I guess itís working. And when it comes to a TV movie as Emily had mentioned before, there is enough questions that people could take and run and make their own stories with these characters after the fact that someone could do that one day.

Emily Rose: Yes and I think Ö

R.C. Samo:: (Multiple Speakers) fiction.

Emily Rose: Yes, I know totally. I just want to say though because Adam wouldnít ever say this about himself but, as somebody that was on the outside, I also kind of liked it because I also to just view him through the friend lens. But like I didnít ever really know or see anything of what he had come from. Like I just you know I heard tales of it, I heard tales.

And so, itís it was pretty cool though because he would just be open and honest about just trying to figure out how is this part working, is this working? And I think one of (Adamís) best moments of the entire series happened this season and that was when (Lee Rose) was directing episode, I think it was 519?Ö

Adam Copeland: Yes.

Emily Rose: And there was a really big emotional moment and I know that Adam was kind of, just like every actor is just a little you know intimidated of, if thatís going to happen and not really knowing what it will look like and not wanting to force something but also wanting it to be very real and authentic. And you know he did takes and was you know was like, OK thatís great. And then they both just agreed they were like, letís just do this you know one more time. I think we can even go further with it.

And it was a really, really, really beautiful moment from Adam and it was really great to be there and to witness it and to watch have that personal acting victory that we all have these milestones in our acting career where weíre like, you know Iíd hope to achieve this can I do it? And to watch him do that and itís such a great beautiful side of Adam and something that he brings to the role, that it was just so exciting to see that and to see that for him and to see where he Ė how much he has even grown. I mean he has always been fantastic but just when youíre Ė when you act beside your friend for so long, you know exactly what they want to work on or where they want to grow, or what they want to achieve.

And so to be there and be able to see that is always really exciting and Adam does some great, great work this season for sure.

R.C. Samo:: Well weíre sad to see the show go but weíre happy we got a chance to talk to you. Thank you so very much and I canít wait to see you guys in your next project.

Emily Rose: Thank you.

Adam Copeland: Thank you.

Emily Rose: Yes.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Julie Seaton from Scifi Pulse. Your line is open. Please go ahead.

Julie Seaton: Hi. Thank you both for talking with us today. You know Ö

Emily Rose: Yes.

Julie Seaton: Iíve had, I had a question Ė a character question kind of for each of you. Now, Emily, you touched a little bit on this earlier, but youíve had to play several different personalities during the course of the show, and unlike some other (Sci-Fi) shows you didnít really have the help of any sort of special effects make-up. How did you go about creating these distinct yet connected personalities?

Emily Rose: Well itís always about the team that gets assembled and communication. You know when youíre in theatre school and you have a character class you Ė itís all about responsibility lies on you and itís a lot about experimenting at home and observing peopleís physicality and getting to work on that. And whatís great about the TV and movie industry is that, you have these professionals from each of those fields to sort of help collaborate with you.

But itís hard too because Iím used to the theatre side of like going home and working things out and trying to work it out for myself and you have to be able to communicate that to everybody. So first of all, I never when I signed up for the show I had absolutely no clue that that was the direction it was going to take and that I would get the opportunity to play all of these people. So it just worked out so great because thatís like an actorís dream to be able to be shown versatility and be able to play with that on screen.

But really you know in the beginning it was (Steven Lynch) my amazing make-up artist and (Jojo), (Joanne Stamp) that is Ėdid hair. And then we had (Steven) doing wardrobe as well this year and he was Ė he was so great because he would bring in a bunch of options for us, or for me wardrobe wise and we would talk about. Iíd say like, with (Lucy),something I really wanted her to have this like leather purse she needed you know something for carrying and that really helped me with my physicality.

And Ė but then also all the work, we actually had (Dorothy Martin) who was doing my make-up this year, doing a bunch of stuff for (Lucy) and some other stuff that I needed. And just through the time of getting to sit in the make-up chair, I just remember there was I think a couple more things that we got to do this season and just sitting and being able to watch the character come together. And then watch (Steven Wright) come into the trailer and look at the wardrobe and then to have (Dorothy) there and then to have (Joanne) there and us together, look and kind of come up with something thatís felt good for all of us.

And then to have the producers come in and I remember specifically probably one of the biggest victories this season when it came to characters was we worked on a collaboration of a character. And I walked into (Matt) my show runner and (Stephanie) and a bunch of other people and just kind of walked in, just kind of was watching and they kind of turned and looked at me and said hi to me as if I was a visitor. And I remember inside going, ďYes.Ē

So it was really exciting because they looked at me and said hi to me like a visitor and then they kind of looked again and then were like, ďOh my wordĒ. So thatís always really exciting you know when you can pull off that kind of transformation and it just comes from having a really good team.

And then just a small Ė Iíll make this short but just a small little story that happened this year -- right before I played a lot of the (Lucy) stuff, I ended up really hurting my knee. My (meniscus) and my (ACL) went out when I was on set. And so I was having to figure out OK, how am I going to cover this up because I still have to walk and I still have to look normal and I have to maybe be wearing a brace.

But it was really cool because we were able to conceal but yet that sort of leg thing really fed into my character and it really worked. And if I wouldnít have had that injury at that moment I donít even think I would have thought of half of the stuff that I needed for you know (Lucy ) in those moments. And so, sometimes the biggest mistakes can turn into the greatest gifts if you let them do that so and youíre open to it and you donít get all bummed and fight it.

You know so just a big collaboration of you know messy creativity and then just throwing something to the wall and seeing if it sticks.

Julie Seaton: Thank you. And for Adam, you mentioned a little bit of Ė we talked a little bit about your personal growth as an actor and also (Dwightís) personal growth since heís been on the show. Now, when you joined the cast did you know then that your character would become such an integral part of the show and its mythology?

Adam Copeland: I had absolutely no idea. I think the Ė so the story goes is that (Shawn Filler) some of the producers and writers saw my retirement speech from WWE and said, ďHey we can get that guy,Ē because they wanted to tie in from WWE, Smack Down leading into (Haven) on (Syfy). So that was the genesis of it but then you know I think it was just supposed to be a one off episode, a few scenes and that was that.

Apparently halfway through the scene a call was made to LA and said, can we write a bit more. And it became a slow growth of four episodes to the next season, seven and so on and so on to the point where with this last season, it really it kind of blew my mind to be honest to be so heavily involved with you know as I said earlier kind of really pivotal moments for this series and the town and that affected all of the characters. And so that was it was pretty huge, it was a lot of fun.

And after the first season where I kind of just went, OK I Ė you know this isnít a thing for me, I donít know what Iím doing and I really enjoyed it. And from that point on like I try to do with anything that I enjoy, I locked my teeth in and just went after it. So it was a lot of fun to do this and experience it and it really gave me another path and another season in my life that I had no idea was going to open up. So I can say that this show actually changed it completely changed my life.

Julie Seaton: Thatís great. Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing the rest of the season.

Adam Copeland: Thank you.

Emily Rose: Thank you.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Courtney Vaudreuil from (Oh so Gray). Your line is now open. Please go ahead.

Courtney Vaudreuil: Hi, thank you both for talking to us today, really appreciate it. Iím very sad that the series is ending. My first question for you is, are we going to see this realm on the other side of the void?

Emily Rose: The realm on the other side of the void, maybe. It would be interesting if we did wouldnít it?

Courtney Vaudreuil: It would especially if (William) came back. Is there any chance of that?

Emily Rose: Maybe, yes. I donít know. I feel like the answer to your question is disappearing into the void right now and I donít know how to retrieve it.

Courtney Vaudreuil: It has been a long time, so I apologize if my memory is faulty. I am getting old. But I seem to recall that we were going to be seeing William Shatner as part of the season. Is that correct?

Emily Rose: Youíre Ė yes youíre right.

Courtney Vaudreuil: And what can you tell us about that?

Emily Rose: Itís incredible, right? William Shatner on Haven, I mean seriously we were like, I remember calling my parents and being like, oh my word who would you just like freak out to see on our show? So yes itís really cool. He is really a neat guy and itís such an incredible thing to get to work with him which I just never in a million years thought I would get to do. So yes, weíre super excited about him being a part of our universe in Haven.

And that you know if you would have told me that when I started this whole thing I would have just been like, youíre kidding me. And itís just really, really cool. Because obviously Sci-Fi fans love him and heís a great actor and he is a presence. He is just a presence and so you canít get around that presence. And so when you need a presence like that who better to call than the Shat, letís be honest.

Adam Copeland: Without giving anything away from the show, it was just the fact that yes youíre standing there across and sharing scenes with William Shatner. And I affectionately refer to him as The Shat Ö

Emily Rose: I was going to call him The Shat, but I didnít know if I was allowed to.

Adam Copeland: To which he referred to me as Babe. So but Iím pretty sure he called everybody Babe. So I donít think thatís a rare or anything but it was really amazing. And I was super impressed with Ė you know this one day, my first scene with him he had been in all day, I only had one scene during the day. Youíre in every scene the entire day and itís a lot.

And it was I think 7 or 8 p.m. by the time I roll in and he was just on it and not dropping anything and rearranging things and it still like just got to where it needed to get to. So I walked away from that going, my God that guy is an absolute pro.

Emily Rose: Well and all of his down time in between the scenes is memorizing the next two days you know worth of material. Itís really Ė itís really quite a lesson in you know in ego and professionalism to watch you know these veteran actors do their thing. Itís encouraging. You feel like you need to take the time to do that, itís encouraging to see them do that.

Adam Copeland: Yes.

Emily Rose: And you keep at it, and you do whatever it takes to be prepared for the next day. You donít ever slack off.

Courtney Vaudreuil: Wonderful. And Emily one last question for you. Last year in our season call, Lucas mentioned that you wanted to take the Bronco. Did he get to keep it?

Emily Rose: No he didnít get to keep it. We Ė it was actually quite sad. I think it was probably the last episode we were out in the parking lot, it was freaking cold, the coldest I mean so freaking cold. And I was like Ė I said to Keith Flynn, I was like, ďKeith, can we turn the heater on in here?Ē Because usually the Bronco is our safe haven. Itís where we sit and you know, sit with our cups of coffee and turn on that Bronco and just let the heat from the engine just you know warm the inside of it.

And I think it was its last day, it was its wrap out day actually. And I was Ė you know I went to go turn it on and Flynn walks up he goes, ďNo, she gave up on us.Ē And I was like, what? Heís like, ďSheís done.Ē

And I said, ďWhat are you talking about sheís done?Ē And heís like, ďShe wonít turn over, she gave up, sheís all done. This is her last day-- sheís all done.Ē And I was like, ďAre you kidding me, Keith?Ē And heís like, ďNo I can Ė I can bring in a plug in heater... we can, you know, put it right there on the seat next to you.Ē

And I was like, oh itís so sad, but itís so romantic and poetic and thatís what happened. On the last day the Bronco wrapped itself out. So no, I think we had a party and they must have pushed it into the studio because we took a lot of pictures by it. But as much as Lucas, you know, would have loved to have that Bronco, we also knew that it was a royal piece of amazing looks and thatís all it was. So it was no, he didnít get it but she knew when to take her bow and she did.

Adam Copeland: And she did it (Multiple Speakers).

Emily Rose: And what, Adam?

Adam Copeland: She did have a drink named after her.

Emily Rose: Did she?

Adam Copeland: The Blue Bronco on Haven.

Emily Rose: Thatís right. Oh thatís right, thatís right. She did. Thatís right she did.

Adam Copeland: Yes.

Emily Rose: The Blue Bronco.

Courtney Vaudreuil: Well thank you both so much. I appreciate it. Iím really going to miss (Haven).

Emily Rose: Thank you.

Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Krista Chain from The TV MegaSite. Your line is open. Please go ahead.

Krista Chain: Hey, thanks for talking to us today.

Emily Rose: Youíre welcome.

Krista Chain: Did you have a favorite episode or a favorite moment during the series?

Emily Rose: During the series (wowser). Oh man. I think I like all of the time travel episodes. I like when I get to see I mean, you know Haven is such a timeless place anyway but I think I really, really, really dug when we got to see it transform into different eras of time.

Like the 50s episode will always stand out in my mind and the one we did this season will stand out as well. But itís too hard for me to pick a moment because to me Haven is one huge moment in my life thatís really, really cool. So itís hard to say goodbye to that friend in a way you know. It was a lot Ė it was a big growing experience for me and a big adventure and a big huge family.

The people, you know unfortunately some of the best moments of times in your life arenít necessarily filmed, they're what's not filmed. And the family that we had there and how hard the Nova Scotia people crews worked for us and what quality they put out and their consistent love and family that they created for us is really one thing that I will always have with me from now on and will never forget. So itís pretty special, has a pretty special place in my heart. And Iím sorry I am pregnant so Iím a bit emotional about things.

Adam Copeland: I kind of echo the same sentiments. Itís Ė I found myself this summer for the first time I was like, wow weíre not in Nova Scotia. I really miss Nova Scotia and I miss the people and the gang and the family. And I miss you know getting together and you know having wine and just (inaudible). Wow, I really sound old giving this interview.

Emily Rose: Youíre really old.

Adam Copeland: And playing board games and you know wrapping, doing wrap presents for the crew and just I donít know. It really just became more than just a show and that was such a great experience to be involved in because as I said earlier, I had no idea that was going to happen and this show truly did change my life. You know I think about what happened to me personally from the time I started on this show, you know Iíve had a baby who the entire cast and crew knows and loves.

Thereís babies that I know and love that I you know got to crawl all over me and to be Uncle Adam for. And those are things that no one sees that just they remain with you. From the work standpoint huge things obviously, itís all a new experience. But I think thatís what I took from it is just that itís trendy in industry but that it can be more than that and it was.

Emily Rose: Yes itís it was a big year of closure this year. This summer was really I donít know, was really sweet to be back home but it was also really hard to be away from our Haven family. We were hoping to dedicate this last season to our dear friend Nicky Butler who we lost this year. Nicky was the owner of the restaurant in town in Chester that we met with you know we had dinner at her place every single Sunday night, family dinners there as a cast and crew

And you know like Adam said like you know when I had my, when I had Myles as a newborn at six weeks going back to work like I was walking him down to dinner there you know strapped to me and stuff and we just have such a family there. So the fact that you know for us the closure has been really good and really necessary but itís been hard to be away from family during some of those big moments but itís also felt like the year for that. Like it just is itís just happening and life grows and changes and closes and moves on and weíre just really thankful and blessed to have been a part of it, so yes.

Krista Chain: Well congratulations on the success and I look forward to seeing the rest of the series.

Emily Rose: Thank you so much.

Adam Copeland: Thank you.

Operator: And your final question comes from the line of Jamie Ruby from SciFi Vision. Your line is open. Please go ahead.

Jamie Ruby: Yay, I get to go again. Hi, guys.

Emily Rose: Hi, (Jamie).

Jamie Ruby: So I think at this point most of my questions have been taken, but I was thinking for Emily. (Audrey) is a lot different now that her troubles Ė sheís not immune to the trouble like she was. Has that affected the way you play her and how is that going to affect the character as well this season?

Emily Rose: Yes, I mean I just remember you know with her it was Ė you know itís tricky for me to sometimes like (parse) out because we did like Ė weíre talking about you know season 5b but we filmed 5a and 5b together as 26 episodes. So you know I just remember, I think somebody even asked about (Mara) early on. And I mean the tricky part about her is like her you know the classic you know her being acting like sheís (Audrey) but then being (Mara) but then people think sheís (Audrey).

And then the whole you know immunity part getting thrown in there and it was really appropriate because you know a big question for (Audrey) this season was you know kind of a different version of the original question she was asking like who am I? Who am I? You know she didnít know her identity initially and in terms of her family but then once she kind of reclaimed her family and who that was, and you know gained a new identity in being this protector of the town and somebody that was immune, now sheís faced again with a new identity crisis not only with you know having been these different people but also, I donít want to say power because itís not a power but something that she Ė that worked to her advantage is no longer a part of her either.

Jamie Ruby: Right.

Emily Rose: And so you know sheís constantly on that identity hunt and I can totally identify with that. And especially moving on from this character and having inhibited her Ė inhabited her for a long time you know being like, oh OK what am I now and what am I doing now and how am I going to identify myself and where do I fit?

But fortunately thatís just not (Audreyís) question. Thatís a question that we all ask and thatís a question that all the characters asked as they kind of bumped up you know do I ask that question (as) he is forced to take different roles and how does that role change his relationship with other people. And (Nathan) is forced to ask himself that when stuff for (Audrey) changes and then how does that affect their relationship?

You know because her Ė that was directly you know connected to a lot of the ways that they connected early on was that he could feel her and all of that. So thatís something we donít know if that changes or not. Does that change their dynamic? All kinds of stuff that it feeds into (Duke) and his journey you know what does it mean with the troubles being a part of him and then not a part of him. Does that make him evil, does that make him good?

How does he Ė you know weíre they're all the characters are asking those questions. All of them itís just in different forms. So itís great writing in that way because itís a core question that we'd all you know ask (just) heightened and dealing with troubles. So yes it was Ė it was tricky to play because I constantly was like having to gauge myself with the directors and my writers, like OK where am I? And you know because your instinct after playing this character for so long is just to act a certain way but you have to keep the current state in the front of your mind.

Jamie Ruby: OK great. Well thank you, and also congratulations to you as well.

Emily Rose: Thank you, thank you.

Jamie Ruby: But, thank you both of you.

Adam Copeland: Thank you.

Operator: As there are no questions on the phone line, at this time I turn the call back to (Samantha).
